Every few seasons there’s a 70s icon revival on the catwalk, which in turn triggers a manestream chain reaction—on the red carpet, as well as off.
Think Bianca Jagger, Cher, Farrah Fawcett, Ali McGraw, Faye Dunaway, Olivia Newton-John, Angelica Huston, Joan Jett, Anita Pallenberg, Marisa Berenson, Catherine Denevue—we could go on and on.
According to Salvatore Ferragamo, Nicholas K, and Betsey Johnson, guess who’s on deck for Spring 2012? Jerry Hall.
The leggy Southern belle supermodel may be best known to most as being the mother of four of Mick Jagger’s children (including our personal girl crush Georgia May), but to beauty experts and celebrity hairstylists alike, it’s always going to be all about her hair.
Why? It’s elementary, my dear. Long and blonde, thick and wavy—Hall’s lush locks are the epitome of sexy (save for Brigitte Bardot and Veronica Lake, of course).
Plus—her’s is the easiest mane to emulate.
Apparently Anna Paquin, Emma Stone, Amber Heard, and Chloe Moretz agree.
It’s as easy as inserting a deep part on the right side and brushing all of your hair over to the left, then using a curling iron to create big ringlets and raking them loose with your fingers.
The tricky part?
Making sure your tumbling waves stay put. The key is to insert a few tress-tone hairpins underneath your hair, right at the nape of your neck.
If you’re into the boho-look, showing the pins is très cool.
If you’re a bit more reserved, try this: Every few inches maneuver a bobby pin vertically, catching a small sliver of hair. Using your fingers, rake loose strands over the pin and repeat, ending with a pin just behind your left ear. Remember to push the pins as high as possible, which is the key to completely concealing them.
