HOW-TO: Disco Texture, Baby!


5 STEPS TO TAKE YOU TO FUNKY TOWN!

What shines brighter than a disco ball? Your holiday hairstyle, obviously! Make a celebratory splash with this hair look by runway stylist and L’anza Healing Haircare ambassador Jorge Luis, who created the look for Son Jung Wan’s NYFW Spring/Summer 2017 show. Luis was inspired by Studio 54 in the ‘70s, and created the mane look to replicate the iconic disco era. “It was all about texture, volume and a sense of fun,” he shares. “My go-to inspirations were Donna Summer, Jerry Hall and Bo Derek.”

Here’s how to recreate these playful, statement-seeking styles at home…

1–Create a middle part with a rattail comb. Grab large sections of hair close to each side of the part and French braid until halfway through hair, then secure. Repeat on the other side.

French braid remaining hair on both sides and secure.

 

3–For remaining hair underneath, wrap small to medium sections of hair (in random directions) tightly around a chopstick; place the wrapped hair in-between flat iron plates for a minute, shifting the iron position as needed to apply heat to all the hair. Release the chopstick and comb resulting curls out.

5–Finish with humidity resistant finishing spray to give firm, natural-looking hold.

Why So Blue?

Because it looks really cool, right? If you ever wondered whether or not you could pull off blue makeup, let Lucy Hale be your inspiration. A berry-blue lipstick looks super-sultry on the newly blonde Pretty Little Liars’ star, and may work for you, too. But in case you’re still not sure about the hue for your lips, check out her smokey eye look created with blue eyeshadow. Now that, you can do, right?
