Lock up your hair straighteners and toss out your flat irons as the season’s twistiest trend takes over. The retro wave, otherwise known as a glamour curl, is enjoying a sudden return to the spotlight. Its recurrence is thanks, in part, to designers like Gucci, Marchesa and Chloé. Follow in the footsteps of Nicole Kidman, Charlize Theron and Blake Lively for coif inspiration. There are many variations of the curly style, from ultra polished and full and flowing to romantic and bouncy and face framing and fabulous. You can master an all-day curl by setting clean, dry hair in hot rollers. Then spritz them with hairspray and let them fall out framing your face. You can then either choose to separate your coils or leave them to drop naturally. For those blessed with natural curls, work your favourite styling product into damp hair to weigh down unruly ringlets. This ultra polished style turns up the elegance on your everyday look effortlessly. Plus, in the winter months, is there anything better than letting your hair down?
