The 1920s are set to be a huge influence on beauty with the remake of The Great Gatsby being filmed in Sydney and Underbelly: Razor on our screens right now. Key elements on the look include a deep lip colour and wet-look finger waves, but a more modern take on the hair sees the wavy fringe worn softer — a look we saw Kirsten Dunst sport at the premiere of Melancholia at the New York Film Festival earlier this week. It's certainly more wearable so we asked Pantene's Expert Stylist Barney Martin for his tips on recreating the look at home.
Apply a golf-ball sized amount of Pantene Body Builder Mousse ($6.99) and lightly rub in the palms of your hands before applying to the mid to end lengths of your hair.
Blow-dry straight and smooth with a large barrelled brush, making sure your hairdryer is blowing down your hair shaft to keep the cuticle laying flat — this encourages a shiny finish. Then make a deep centre part keeping the front section separate.
Pull the rest of your hair behind your ears and secure into a low bun at the nape of your neck. Use bobby pins to secure any stray lengths into your bun.
Create loose waves at the front with a large barrelled tong or straightener. Then spray liberally with a flexible hairspray — this will hold your style without giving you that crunchy feeling.
