Stay Dirty – And Look Great

Check out this easy, elegant style that’s perfect for second day hair by Vintage Beauty Detective.

Your Dirty Secret…

Something that draws me to retro inspired hairstyles is the versatility. When done well, a curl set can last days, be molded into different shapes and reworked. The last thing you need to get in your way is oily, flat roots. That’s where dry shampoo comes in the picture! Simply put, the aim of dry shampoo is to absorb oil, add texture and create volume. This can be invaluable when trying to extend the life of your hairstyle-especially during a busy morning.
  1. Part from ear to ear and clip front section of hair away. The model for this look had second day hair, so the first to do was target her oiliest area – the crown and front hairline.
  2. Taking horizontal sections, spray Stay Dirty Dry Shampoo underneath and on top of each section. Focus on the roots, this area gets oiler soonest and will be easier to tease with the added texture.

    Tip: When using dry shampoo, keep a good distance while spraying to ensure even distribution of product, and light application at first allows you to avoid any heavy build up.

  3. Spray all over with Fever Thermal Protectant before curling. Make sure to mist all layers of hair, not just the top. Brush through.
  4. Depending on your hair’s thickness, part horizontal sections of manageable width. If you want smaller waves, take smaller subsections.
  5. With your curling iron open, wrap the strand of hair around the barrel, clamping gently through the entire strand. When you have curled the entire section, wrap and clip the curl at its base, fastening it to the head. (Amanda used a 2″ marcel, but the same effect can be achieved with The Iron using the Rita Curl Technique.)
  6. Spray with some Fierce Firm Hold Finishing Spray to lock in the curl. Let the curls cool before taking out the clips (or foil pods if using The Iron). Put on your makeup while waiting or change your clothes! After removing the clips, brush out the curls until you achieve your desired look.
  7. To start back combing (teasing), part hair at the crown as you did when you sprayed Stay Dirty. Insert the teeth of a fine tooth come into the hair several inches from the head and push straight down to the scalp. If needed, repeat 2-3 times to get desired volume.

    Tip: Do not use a scrubbing motion, this will leave you with tangles, breakage and a headache!

  8. Smooth down the back combed hair to your desired volume.
  9. For the rest of the hair, the goal is to create a relaxed, undone texture. The more you brush the softer the curls become. Try a salt spray or Linger Sculpting Spray Gel to add separation to the curl.
  10. Loosely gather the top section (avoid grabbing too much hair from the top of your head) and secure with a method best suited for your hair type. Let the sides droop down into the ribbon for a look that is effortless and chic. This is great opportunity to wear a pretty ribbon á la Brigitte Bardot or add a cool clip!
This look can be customized to fit you, so brush it out, rough it up, or tease it huge! Have fun and own the confidence to Stay Dirty!
