When Mad Men first hit our screens in 2008 it seemed to fit in well with our changing fashions as more and more high street fashion stores featured 50s style prom dresses, red lipstick reared its head and cute dresses and knitwear seemingly straight out of the 1960s popped up everywhere. Darling of the retro look, Dita Von Teese is now the style icon for woman wanting a more feminine, softer look.
Along with this gradual influx of 50s and 60s “retro” inspired fashion came the hairdos.
Poker straight hair made way for gentle and natural waves and women started to curl their hair again. Curling your hair is a tricky job and if you have long hair sometimes feels like a two person job plus there are swaths of options out there, curling tongs, heated and cool rollers, bendy curlers and the confusing looking twin barrel ones. That’s before you think about what they are made of. Ceramic, porcelain or Tourmaline…which are better? We’d love you to tell us your secret to perfect luscious curls.
If you want to create curls with ease and without damaging your hair (I’ve had some tongs that grab hair leaving you with no option but to cut off the trapped piece of hair) then take a look at our member suggestions. Don’t forget to see which hair styling product can help you keep your style and protect your hair.
