Description

Dita Von Teese, you are a hair goddess. I have never seen your hair anything but immaculate. And more than that, I have never seen anyone maintain a slightly left-of-center style with such dedication and so perfectly before.

Your hairstyle is so stylishly retro. Always. I particularly like your ‘do in the picture here. It’s medium length and pulled over to one side to show off your eyes and classy accessories. Your locks have been set in curls for a wavy effect with lots of body and height, and their jet black color is striking.

Your hair’s the perfect complement to your burlesque image. You define burlesque as a strip performance that puts the “tease” back into strip tease. Importantly too, it’s a performance inseparable from its original 1940s context, and as a result it depends on a certain kind of vintage glamour wardrobe and hair.

Your clothes are impeccably burlesque. True to their origins they usually consist of multiple layers of stockings, corsets and various frills, designed to be laced and unlaced, added and removed (if not literally, then in one’s imagination). Your dedication to maintaining your burlesque image is tireless- you’re so burlesque it’s like you just stepped out of a time machine from the past. I saw a photo of you once at a music festival and you even managed to rustle together a more casual burlesque “summer” outfit.

I bet you even wear 1940s style burlesque jim-jams to bed at night, complete with fluffy burlesque bunny ear slippers.

This dark glossy mane is dressed in waves through the sides and back to give it a classic look and feel that can be achieved using rollers and product for hold and shine. This fab 'do is perfect to turn heads at any occasion and best suited to compliment a long face.

Styling Steps

1. Apply Mousse

Placeholder articles

Apply styling mousse to damp hair, using your palm as a measuring guide, and evenly distribute it along the hair shaft. Styling mousse will add hold and can help achieve better results.

2. Part to the Left

Placeholder articles

Using the corner of your comb and standing in front of a mirror find the middle of your left eye and then drag the comb straight up slowly until you reach your hairline and then continue back in a straight manner to achieve an even left part. A side part is great for longer face shapes because it creates the illusion of width.

3. Use a Medium Radial Brush

Placeholder articles

A medium radial brush is used on medium to long hair types to smooth out wavy or curly hair textures or to add body to straight hair. When selecting a radial brush, always use one with a pure bristle as this will not tear or damage the hair.

4. Blow-dry the Back Under

Placeholder articles

To blow-dry under, start at the nape/back and place your brush under the section of hair close to the nape. With the dryer held up over the hair, pull the brush from the roots and continue to the mid length's, keeping the blow-dryer following over the top. Once you reach the ends, curve them under. Repeat this step until the section is completely dry.

5. Blow-dry the Sides Under

Placeholder articles

To blow-dry the sides, take out a small section of hair from the front and clip the rest of the hair away. Next, place the brush under the section and then pull the brush and hair forward around your face (this curving motion creates body). Place the hair-dryer on top of the brush until you reach the ends and then turn the ends under. Repeat until dry.

6. Use Large Hot Rollers

Placeholder articles

A large hot roller is used to give your hair a larger curl and to add lots of body.

7. Apply Hot Rollers Through the Back

Placeholder articles

Take the entire back section of your hair, and then starting from the crown, take a smaller section of hair no wider than the diameter of the hot roller and comb it through to ensure there are no knots. Place the roller at the ends of the section of hair, being sure to smooth the ends under, and then twist the roller down the hair shaft until it meets your head and then secure it in place with a pin or clip. Repeat this step until you have reached the nape of your neck and the entire back section of your hair is completed. Keep the rollers in your hair until they cool.

8. Apply Hot Rollers Vertically to the Side

Placeholder articles

Take a section of hair no wider than the diameter of the hot roller and comb it through to ensure there are no knots. Place the roller at the ends of the section of hair, being sure to smooth the ends under, and then twist the roller vertically, making sure to roll it backwards, along the hair shaft to the roots and secure it with a pin or clip. Keep the rollers in your hair until they cool.

9. Piece the Ends Using Wax

Placeholder articles

Apply a small amount of wax to your fingertips and then lightly piece and pinch the ends of your hair.

10. Apply Smoothing Shine

Placeholder articles

Apply a very small amount of smoothing shine to the palms of your hands and then run it through the mid-lengths and ends of your hair. Be careful not to add any to the roots or a large amount to any section of the hair as smoothing shine can be very heavy on the hair, weighing it down and making it appear oily.

11. Apply Hairspray

Placeholder articles

To finish, apply a minimal amount of hairspray from an arms length distance to the top, sides and back. Take care not to use too much or you will end up with a white, flaky residue which looks like dandruff.
