Soft wavy bob with a low side partThis young Julie Christie or Charlotte Rampling hairstyle is "so romantic and kind of innocent," says Philip B. "It frames the face in a lovely way that draws attention to the mouth."
Keep it modern: Go for less structured waves by using hot rollers. "This is a terrific look if you're in your early 20s and wear minimal makeup," he says. "The side part is more extreme than how it used to be worn in order to create the lovely side-swept bangs. And again, this look is very touchable; the hair looks really healthy and glossy, not sprayed or helmet-like."
How to: Spray each 1-inch section of hair with two to three mists of hairspray and put it into a hair roller. When the rollers feel cool, let your hair down. Spray some dry shampoo at the crown, let it dry for a minute, then brush your hair out and shape it with your fingers.
