I am feeling very “Veronica Lake” with this elegant coiffed curl hairstyle. It has an extremely elegant and classy look to it that is reminiscent of pinup girls, yet it also remains modern in that it is touchable, flexible, and it moves along with you. I am using some amazing Umberto Haircare products that I purchased from Target to achieve the look. I’ve got the full step-by-step tutorial inside,
Above is a video tutorial of Umberto Savone creating the “Coiffed Curls” look. I followed his tutorial while recreating this look.
This is my hair before…I just woke up and I have no idea what to do with my hair. It’s long and a bit lifeless at this point. I used Umberto Thickening Spray all over my entire head to create thicker strands.
Next, I parted my hair to the side. You want your part to be about even with the arch of your eyebrow, but it doesn’t matter which side you part it to.
Take a section of hair from the front side part (the one that has less hair), and comb through it.
Use a curling iron to curl this piece of hair. I curled away from my face, and kept the curling iron up and down to keep it modern looking.
Brush or comb that piece of curled hair so that it is smooth when you tuck it behind your ear.
Using two bobby pins, secure the piece of hair behind your ear. Now you’ve got the official piece of tucked back hair for the retro-glam look. Simply curl the rest of your hair. I alternated curling away from my face and toward my face so I got a nice mix. Once the curls cooled, I lightly tousled them with my fingers so they were natural looking. To finish everything off, I used Umberto Shimmer Shine Spray which gave my hair major shine:
Look at those shiny locks! The Shimmer Spray was excellent and didn’t make my hair feel or look greasy at all like a lot of shine sprays do. I love how glossy and healthy it makes my hair look. The finished hair is very vintage-looking, and very classy. It can be worn to an evening party, a wedding, a photo-shoot, your prom, or even just as an everyday hairstyle when you feel like being extra sexy. It’s an incredibly sensual look that makes your hair look touchable, healthy, and yet very polished.
Of course you know I had to do the classic “blowing kiss” picture with a hairstyle like this. It is very reminiscent of Marilyn Monroe, Veronica Lake, and even modern day beauties like Megan Fox.
I added these glamorous earrings. They are the perfect over-the-top, glamorous, sparkling earrings for this look. With one ear showing and your hair tucked to one side, you have to show off some gorgeous earrings!
All hair products were purchased at Target and are available online and at Target stores nationwide. Enjoy your sexy new look, beautiful!
