Big Hair is Back.



No, we’re not talking about the freeze-dried look of twenty years ago.  Today, flat is out and VOLUME is in. According to GALTime style expert Kerri Winick of Celebutante Sisters, there’s a right way to get the sky-high style:

In the 80’s, tresses were anything but tame! Teasing, mousse and a generous helping of hairspray- this is how women achieved the coveted “big hair” look. Celebrity hairstylist Philip Pelusi says, women today still crave va-va-volume, but there’s a more modern way to set the style. Put away the scrunchies and the Aqua Net. Here are Philip Pelusi’s tips for achieving hair with height in 2010:

When it comes to volume…
Volume really never goes out of fashion, but it is the type of volume or
the finish on the hair that goes “in” and “out” of style. (For example, either a soft or a crunchy finish.) Some amount of volume really compliments anyone. If someone wants to look younger, thick and voluminous hair helps achieve that. If someone wants to look alluring and sexy, voluminous hair does that, as well.

When it comes to bangs…
Steer clear of short, puffy bangs, a “too crunchy” finish, or too stiff/evenly curled hair. To have modern “big” hair, bangs can be softly swept to the side, but don’t style shorter bangs in the big rounded shape that truly belongs in the 1980’s. Also, keep hair on the soft side. Steer clear of hardening mousses or gels.
