We've been keeping a keen eye on hair trends in the celeb world and we've noticed that Old Hollywood Glamour hair styles have become increasingly popular on the red carpet with stars like Lana Del Rey, Megan Fox, and Kim Kardashian being huge fans of this trend! We absolutely LOVE this look as it looks incredible worn short or long and it just oozes sophistication, so it’s great to see so many celebs sporting this trend! Old Hollywood glamour hair styles need lots of volume for the full effect so using your Dirty Looks hair extensions with this classic style is perfect for that extra oomph! Start with a deep side-parting, as this is key for creating an Old Hollywood hair style, then fit your hair extensions and style them in with your natural locks for better blending. You can choose to wear your Old Hollywood glamour hair style as a down ‘do or as an updo: both look equally gorgeous! Whichever you choose, you want to add some sultry waves and movement before you style; we recommend using a large barrelled tong or a conical wand for the waves and curls in this style as you want them to be bold and brave like a true Hollywood star!! Finger waves are perfect for creating this look so pop over to our Great Gatsby Finger Wave hair tutorial to try this yourself. :) If you are choosing an updo as your Old Hollywood glamour hair style then pull all your hair back into a bun or chignon and then secure your hair and your hair extensions with a sparkly clip! For a more traditional Old Hollywood look, keep your hair sleek and off your face, but if you want to modernise the style a little then you could leave some sections of hair loose to frame your face. Finish your updo with a little serum for that Hollywood shine! We think Tigi is just perfect!!
If you are leaving your Old Hollywood hair style loose then pin your curls after styling as this will help them stay in place for longer. Once they have cooled, gently let your hair loose. Try not to brush through the curls too much as you don’t want them to lose their bounce and voluptuous shape! A side fringe looks incredible with this down ‘do, but you have to get the styling right! Style your fringe with your large barrelled tong so that it follows the movement of the rest of your hair. Then you can either opt to wear your fringe loose or slick it back a little so that it stays in place for a true Old Hollywood hair style.
We think the Old Hollywood look is the perfect hairstyle to complement any evening gown; it's just SO classy! If you need a super glam hairstyle for a special event then this could be just the style for you to stand out from the crowd . Pop over to Dirty Looks to get your full head of hair extensions to ensure this style is super thick and bang-on-trend.
