Today, new hairstyles for women have been inspired by vintage looks from the classic beauties of the past. From bobs to the infamous Gibson cut, Hollywood glam plays a big part in new hairstyles and this article will explain how you can get these hot looks and the right way to maintain them.
New Hairstyles: The Gibson Girl
The Gibson girl was a trendy hairstyle in the 1890s. This look consists of a textured and frothy, yet angelic look that’s perfect for today’s woman. To achieve this look, spray on a texturizing product and blow dry. Start at the bottom and work your way towards the top, teasing one inch sections of the hair starting at the root, then follow up with a flat iron. Make sure you spray each section using a heat protecting spray. Brush out your hair using a soft bristle brush. Finish this look by sweeping your hair to the top of your head and loosely gather it, pinning it in place using bobby pins. Typically, this style works for most face shapes and helps to significantly bulk upper finer textured hair.
New hairstyles that are in today wouldn’t be considered complete without a refined pixie cut. This short cropped hairstyle has made a big comeback in Hollywood.
Begin by getting a cut from a professional stylist. This new hairstyle is best when cut with either a razor or texturizing scissors, in order to create a softer more feminine feel. To style just use a small amount of thickening cream on damp hair. Comb the hair into place and allow it to air dry. Use your fingers to style.
