Runway hair seems to have taken on pop culture counterparts this season. Tresses ere tremendously big at Nina Ricci with Barbie-esque bouffants, while over at Chanel, models were getting wild and woolly with Barbarella-style beehives. Here at VIVA HQ, we are bringing the trend back down to earth and embracing volume for everyday wear. Achieving big, volumous hair at home is easy, just make sure you arm yourself with a full can of strong hold hairspray. Starting at the front of the hairline, backcomb your tresses away from your face and work section by section, this will create a serious high octane coif. You can choose to keep the hair down or sweep it up off the face in a true 60s beehive. All you need to do now is wear your favourite outfit, add some red lippy and statement jewels and you’re all set for a true retro glam look. For star studded inspiration, look at sex-kitten hairstyle muses like Kate Hudson, Angelina Jolie, Eva Mendes and Scarlett Johansson. It seems size really does matter and the bigger the better!
