The 1920s Undercurl

/ 08.06.2014

If jazz age chic floats your boat, you're in the right place because we have a gorgeous 1920s inspired hairstyle for you with a little help from the Advanced Hairstyle range by L'Oréal Paris. This high-shine vintage undercurl features some very pretty detail at the back with a large twisted chignon, not dissimilar to a Gibson tuck or a faux bob. Perfect for anytime you want to feel a little dressed up, this style can be worn everywhere from work to your best friend's wedding. To find out how to get the look, all you need to do is watch the video tutorial above!

To make the styling process even easier, we've put the written instructions below.

Step one
Apply L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Frizz Vanisher Cream evenly throughout your hair. You can start with either dry or freshly washed, damp locks, whichever is easiest.

Step two
Create a part just off to one side then comb your hair through to fix it in place.

Step three
Blow-dry all of your hair completely. While drying, the cream with smooth the cuticle and eliminate frizz and flyaways.

Top tip - Make sure you keep the airflow pointed down toward the floor to set your hair as smooth and straight as possible.

Step four
Once dried, pull one side back as if you were creating a ponytail. Start twisting the hair towards the back of your head and gradually add more hair to the twist as you go. Continue until all of it has been incorporated.

Step five
Pin the twist up at the back, folding the ends back over the rest.

Step six
Finally, mist your hair with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand-Smoother Serum Spray to set your new style and add shine. That's it!
