Big and bold is what this hairstyle is all about. A combination of medium to long layers are cut all through the sides and back of these highlighted locks then dressed to achieve maximum body and volume making this a great look to frame a long face for any occasion. Strong hold product is needed to keep this hairstyle in place.
Raquel Welch shows she still has it with this big, sexy hairdo seen here. This show stopping hairstyle looks fabulous with her oblong face shape and matches her off the shoulder gown and sparkly jewelry too! Raquelâ€™s face is more narrow than wide so the big bouncy curls in her hair and mega volume throughout is just what she needs to balance out her face shape nicely. The added volume at the root area and flipped over fringe adds extra height for a nice finishing touch.
Raquelâ€™s color is also working for her nicely here. She has a warm skin tone with golden undertones to it that suits this shade well. Her base is a rich chocolate brown, which is highlighted with warm caramel blonde tones throughout. This color is suitable for natural brunettes who want to lighten up their look while adding a warm glow to their skin tone.
Raquel Welch is an American actress who became a movie icon during the Sixties, and is still looking great now at 74.

3. Apply Hot Rollers Through the Back
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.
4. Apply Hot Rollers Vertically to the Side
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.
Pick up a small selection of hair from your mid section no bigger than your tail comb. Place your comb at the roots and then comb up and down until the hair is standing up by itself. Continue to the crown and finish at the sides. Repeat this step if you require more volume.
6. Piece the Ends Using Wax
Apply a small amount of wax to your fingertips and then lightly piece and pinch the ends of your hair.
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.
