Look We Love: Jamie Chung’s Sexy Loose Waves

Lush bouncy waves that ooze oomph and effortless sex appeal? Now this is the kind of hair every girl wants to have. Kudos to whoever styled Jamie Chung’s locks for the L.A. premiere of Sucker Punch. Her loose retro waves instantly evoke thoughts of our favorite film noir seductresses of yesteryear, like Ava Gardner, Veronica Lake and Rita Hayworth. Below, our tips on how you too can master temptress tresses.

—Divide hair into small sections and quickly pass a ceramic flat iron down the entire hair shaft (from roots to tips) to even hair out and remove tangles;

—Holding the flat iron vertically, close the plates mid-shaft (just under your ear) and lightly turn and clap the iron until you reach the ends;

—Using both of your index fingers, immediately roll each section up and pin each curl flat on your scalp with a clip. This allows your strands to cool and set in a coiled position, giving each curl more definition. Bonus points if you do this every single night—your waves can last a full week!;

—Remove clips and brush ringlets with a paddle brush to turn curls into waves;

—Lastly, mist your mane with a lightweight dry oil. It helps tame frizz and gives your mane a glossy finish.

    I think it’s a really great new feature on your site. I often want to mimic some make.up look or hair style worn on the red .carpet, but rarely have the skills to pull it off. And also incredibly nice with links to products used.

    I love this! There’s a touch a Old Hollywood glamour there. She definitely rocks with that hairstyle.
    By the way, would you mind having a post on Belle’s hairstyle in the ballroom scene in Disney’s Beauty and the Beast? I want that for my prom night sooooo bad!
