Tousled

With a fall-winter 2015 collection inspired by Marilyn Monroe, the hair and makeup looks at Max Mara were also influenced by the 1950s. Marilyn’s more bookish side was channeled through tousled curls in a retro updo. Eyes popped with a winged eye and full lashes while the lip was finished in a pouty pink.

Shonagh!

I like to just play up my eyes as opposed to wearing too much foundation & intense lips.
So, I created a soft smokey eye & tousled hair, on myself for my sisters hen do yesterday.
I opted for some large lashes being as we were off to a cabaret evening. I usually wear something a bit more subtle.
On my eyes I used Benefit creaseless cream eyeshadow in ‘Birthday Suit’ & I used two browns by MAC to define the outer corners. On top of those, I used Bobbi Brown Black gel liner on the waterline & across the top lid.
This was quick to create.
I don’t like to wear foundation, so I just used a light mist of airbrush so it didn’t cover my freckles too much, and went for a more natural look to my skin. I added a touch of bronzer around my temples & cheekbones, and finished off with a bit of Harmony blush!
For my hair, I used a large Babyliss conical wand.

“This style works best with any type of one-day-dirty hair,” says veteran stylist and salon owner, Melissa Wagner, “but for long, fine hair, it needs to be clean—or else the style will wilt.” Described as a Mad Hatter garden-party style with a classic edge, these amped up, deconstructed curls show off a modern twist to perfectly coiffed victory rolls. For a tutorial on this revamped retro look, we headed to San Francisco’s Secret Agent Salon—known for infusing adventurous, artistic, and avant-garde elements to any look. We watched as Wagner created this edgy rendition of this familiar curly look, perfect for outdoor celebrations and very merry unbirthday parties. LENA PARK

STEP ONE
Spray hair with a heat-protectant spray. Separate hair into three sections: center, left, and right. The width of the center section should not exceed the length of your rollers.

STEP TWO
Wrap the center section with large hot rollers. “Larger rollers will give the top smooth volume,” says Wagner. Grab a two-inch section and place the roller in the middle of that section, wrapping the ends down first; then roll towards the head. Secure with a clip.

For the side sections, repeat, making sure to roll away from the face. “The hot rollers used on the sides were smaller, resulting in a tighter curl and more body,” explains Wagner. “The varying curl sizes gives a more natural result.”

TIP: “Using rollers with teeth will make the look less frizzy,” explains Wagner.

STEP THREE
Remove rollers once they have reached room temperature. Spray the ends with a light-hold hairspray to keep the style intact. To add airy volume, flip hair upside down and sprinkle in teasing powder. “It’ll give hair a nice, matte look and expand the shape,” explains Wagner.

STEP FOUR
Create a soft, feminine pompadour by gently twisting the bangs or front section of hair to the top of the head and pushing it forward. Pin into place. Grab a thumb-length of hair from the part to the other temple. Gently twist to the side of the head, push forward slightly, and pin into place.

STEP FIVE
Separate curls with the pointed end of a tail comb, teasing small sections upwards. “This technique leaves curls more intact than traditional teasing or back combing,” says Wagner.

CHANGE IT UP:
Remove the bobby pins from the pompadour. Scoop up small sections of hair using a slightly opened bobby pin. Loop hair up, twist, and pin into place to create an updo. “Repeat until perfectly imperfect,” says Wagner.

TIP: Curl small hanging sections for a polished effect.

Natalie’s hand reached for the alarm her fingers fumbling against the hard plastic slapping every button she could find.  After several failed attempts she begrudgingly sat up on her knees to turn the damn thing off.  Yawning and stretching her arms high she strained her eyes as they adjusted to the sun peeking through the window.  She scrunched her eyes and looked at the blurry numbers on the alarm until they came into focus.  “Fuck, fuck, fuck! Ben wake up!”  Her hands gently shook his shoulder.  “Babe, wake up we overslept.  You’re supposed to be there in half an hour.”
