Hair tutorial for softly styled retro curls and waves by Stephanie Scuoppo
By Carla Snuggs

It’s a brand new year, so why not start it off with a fresh new look? We were mesmerized by the hair and makeup on Spring/Summer 2014 runways, especially one of 2014’s key hair trends: softly styled waves with a deep side part.

The look is sort of 70s glam, yet modernized and super sexy. Posh Beauty Blog looked to Stephanie Scuoppo, hair design expert at The Salon and Spa at Saks Fifth Avenue to get the look rocked by the stunningly gorgeous models in the SS14 Ruffian, Holly Fulton and Maria Grachvogel shows. Here is Stephanie’s hair tutorial so you can get the look, step by step:

Step 1: Start with freshly washed hair and apply a light weight blow dry gel (Stephanie uses Kerastase Forme Fatale $35,

Step 2: Blow dry completely.

Step 3: Use a tail comb to create a low side part using your eye brow arch as a guide.

Step 4: Set hair using a 1-1/2 inch wide curling iron or large hot rollers (such as T3 jumbo or Caruso). Take 1 to 2 inch sections starting on each side of part. Roll downward and secure with clamp if you’re using rollers or use heavy duty Bobby pins if you’re using a curling iron.  Set all hair in manner described above.

Step 5: Once all hair is set, begin removing pins/rollers starting with the first ones. “The idea is to have a loose wave so it should not set too long,” says Stephanie.

Step 6: Use a very wide-tooth comb to sort of 'rake' through the hair giving an un-done look.

Step 7: Finish with a light mist of spray (Stephanie uses Kerastase Laque Couture $35)
