The “new” Seventies glam look

Christina HendricksAt the recent Golden Globes awards, Christina Hendricks, best known for her role as the sexy secretary in the hit drama, Mad Men, looked fabulous in  a red Romona Keveza gown. Stylist Jen Atkin for Sebastian Professional was responsible for her bouncy curls.

 
“Her dress had a rich vintage feel to it and this gorgeous accent on the shoulder that resembled a flower,” says stylist Jen Atkin for Sebastian Professional. “Instead of putting her hair up, we opted to give it a modern twist and keep the hair bouncy and down. This style is great for cocktail parties, or to dress up a look.”
 
To achieve Christina’s modern take on a vintage 70’s-inspired ‘do,’ follow Jen’s tips:
 
1. Begin by applying Sebastian Professional Mousse Forte at the roots on damp hair.
 
2. Next, blow dry the hair using a Mason Pearson brush with your head upside down. Once the hair is 75 percent dry, flip your head back over and curl the ends under using a round brush.
 
3. Spray  Sebastion Professional Shaper Zero Gravity hairspray all over the hair, and brush it through to create a base to hold the waves.

4. Using a one-inch curling iron, wrap one-inch sections in a clockwise direction and pin the curls. Once they are set, let cool for 15 minutes (cool for five to 10 minutes, if you have thick hair).
 
5. Unpin the hair and brush out the curls using a boar bristle brush. Set the part and stretch out the bangs using a flat iron to get a smoother look toward the front of your face.
 
6. Finish the look with Sebastian Professional Shaper Fierce hairspray.
