DIY Wedding Hairstyles: Old Hollywood Glamour

By Azure Nelson, Published Feb 21, 2011

I don't know about you, but I LOVED January Jones' red carpet hairstyle at the 2011 Golden Globes. Her 1920's-inspired brushed out wave was picture perfect with her bold red lips and gown. This Old Hollywood Glam hairstyle would look great with a French net veil, blusher, or bridal fascinator. And paired with a slinky, sheath style wedding dress (Jenny Packham's gorgeous dresses come to mind) and retro peep-toe bridal heels, the look would be divine. It's a simple enough hairstyle to DIY, so read on to learn the 4 steps to achieve the brushed out wave hairstyle that January Jones sported at the Golden Globes! Celebrity hairstylist Renato Campora shares the scoop: Step 1: Starting with wet hair, apply a volumizing mousse to your roots. Then from the middle of your head down to the ends, apply a smoothing cream (like Frederic Fekkai Coiff Controle Ironless Straightening Balm) to create volume and de-frizz your hair. Step 2: Create a deep side part and blow dry your hair with a large round brush. Step 3: Using large hot rollers, set your hair and let it sit for 10 minutes. Once it's time to release the hair from the rollers, brush through it gently to create volume and the seamless curled shape. Step 4: Spritz the brushed out wave with a stronghold hairspray, and you're done! Do you love this retro look as much as I do? Who's Golden Globes hairstyle was your favorite?
