The Marilyn Monroe pin curls and Brigitte Bardot blowout are back. See how to give a chic update to these retro hairstyles now
Geometric cut"This '60s mod look is timeless," says Hollywood, Calif,-based hair expert, Philip B. "The drawback to this retro hairstyle is that you have to commit to constant touchups -- a trim every two weeks and you can't have any frizz." The stylist says it's best for those with medium-to-thick straight hair.
Keep it modern: "It's sculpted to play up a beautiful neck and cheekbones. It's also right in step with the revival of the color-blocking look in fashion." For the modern update, the cut has less volume than the original inspiration, which "makes the hairstyle sleeker and a little more gamine, I think," says Philip B. He adds that it's fun to pair this look with feminine clothes and makeup.
How to: Use a great conditioner, like Philip B. Oud Royal Forever Shine Conditioner, $85, to make the hair really soft and shiny. Blow dry with a paddle brush and then smooth on a touch of anti-frizz serum to keep the style looking really glossy and smooth.
