Classic Waves

On the fashion runways this season, we saw several sweet and conservatively-styled dresses inspired by the 50s. Dresses were longer and flowy, and fitted blouses featured ruffles and charming touches of lace. For this traditional look, Rocco recommends a hairstyle with loose, silky curls like the actresses and artists of this era. Women in that time did not have the luxury of using a hair dryer, so they had to use the natural texture of their hair to look fabulous.

To obtain the modern version of this style, start by washing hair with Suave Professionals(r) Rosemary Mint shampoo and conditioner, which are made with an infusion of rosemary and mint, 100% Natural ingredients that are known for their invigorating properties. It will leave hair soft and shiny! After washing hair, Rocco recommends applying Suave Professionals(r) Healthy Curls Scrunching Mousse throughout damp, towel-dried hair to define curls and help control frizz. These are key to flaunting beautiful, moisturized and defined waves like those popular in the 50s era. After applying the mousse, flip hair upside down. Using a hair dryer with a diffuser on high heat and minimum speed, dry your hair completely without touching it with your fingers, as this will help waves form naturally and without frizz. You can finalize your look with a bit of hairspray to control rebellious strands and maintain waves in place.

This look is simple to achieve with the right product and will give any Latina voluminous, bouncy, red-carpet ready hair.

The Renovated Ponytail

Another hot fashion trend will be the military style. Clothes of this style have a rigid construction, but in luxurious and clean textures that serve well for the lower temperatures of these months. To match this style, Rocco offers a modern take on the classic ponytail. Everyone knows how to achieve this basic look, but you don’t always have to be so meticulous with this style. Sometimes it helps to leave out a few loose strands to give it an attractive touch, allowing the style to combine perfectly with the elegant military look.

To achieve this style, Rocco recommends starting with damp hair and applying Suave Professionals(r) Volumizing Root Lifter Spray Gel to add thickness and body that will help add character to the hairstyle. Using a hair dryer set to maximum heat and velocity, dry your hair using a flat comb with thick, flexible teeth. Once it is dry, pull your hair back delicately with your finger tips, allowing some strands to fall naturally out of the ponytail. Look for a unique ponytail holder, like a colorful ribbon or jeweled clip, to secure it in place. Complete the look by bringing loose strands back and applying Suave Professionals(r) Freeze Hold Hairspray for hold and control that lasts all day.
