Feminine, Elegant Take on the 40's Bob at S/S '10 Costello Tagliapietra

Spring/Summer 2010 NY Fashion Week Report

drugstore.com I loved the hair looks at the S/S '10 Costello Tagliapietra show during NY Fashion week! Thomas Dunkin and his Sebastian team this time created a ‘40s inspired faux bob that was feminine and elegant yet also playful and not too “done”.

Our friends at Sebastian Professional have also given us the scoop on how Thomas did it and the products you can use to recreate the looks!

The Hair Look:
To put a modern twist on a ‘40s staple, Sebastian Professional lead stylist Thomas Dunkin recommends a method of building texture and shape with techniques that keep the hair looking soft, romantic and not too “done.”

Finish with an elastic touchable texturizer or flexible shine spray to create a look that’s elegant yet playful.

Here’s how to create your own ‘40s inspired faux bob:

1) Apply Sebastian Professional Texturizer to damp hair; distribute evenly throughout.

2) Blow hair out straight with a medium to large-sized round brush.

3) Spray hair with a flexible hairspray for added texture, section hair, curl it with a medium-sized barrel curling iron and set.

4) Take out pins, gently brush out the curls and then roll hair under, section by section, fastening it under at the neck with bobby pins.

5) Apply Microweb Fiber to hands and gently work through the front of the hair to create an imperfect, lived-in effect. Finish by misting with a strong-hold hairspray.
