Old Hollywood siren Veronica Lake was known for many things — her smouldering screen presence, pin-up model career and rebellious reputation — but one trait that continues to live on is her trademark peek-a-boo hairstyle. This sophisticated and flirtatious look of cascading waves and a deep side part has experienced a resurgence with actresses Amanda Seyfried, Megan Fox and Blake Lively all wearing the style on the red carpet recently. If you want to bring out your inner femme fatale for your next night out, then use the following tips from Alain Larivee, John Frieda Creative Consultant.
1. Prep wet hair with John Frieda Luxurious Volume Always Stylish Gel-Creme for maximum coverage, ideal style-ability and major volume.
2. Brush hair to remove any tangles and then wrap hair around magnetic rollers taking care to place them in the direction you want your hair to ultimately fall. Allow hair to dry thoroughly.
3. Once your hair is dry unwind it from around rollers and carefully brush through.
4. Finish with John Frieda Frizz-Ease 100% Shine Glossing Mist to achieve a glistening finish and John Frieda Moisture Barrier Firm-Hold Hairspray to hold your finished look.
