SS18: Travel back in time with retro hair - oh so 'modernly' glamorous!

Whether we're talking 60s volume or 90s bantu knots, hair trends tend to work their way back in to our lives, and at the moment we're loving the retro inspired looks hitting the catwalks all over the world. Take a peek.

The classic victory roll

Whether you're in London or Sao Paulo, the iconic, post-war 'victory roll' hair-do is enjoying a real renaissance. Worn 'tight' or more relaxed, as above, the rolls ooze sophistication, while the loose hair balances it nicely, giving it a rock and roll edge. Use L'Oréal Professionnel's Infinium Pure long lasting and fixing hair spray for an easy, natural hold.

Roll up, roll up!

Combine the chic chignon of yesteryear with a glamorous wave for a retro smart look like Blanca Padilla spotted during Milan Fashion Week hitting the streets with the best 'off-duty model' hair.

All you need? A little patience, a few Kirby grips to fix and L'Oréal Professionnel Techni ART Pli, a back-stage favourite. The thermo-modelling spray adds shape fix, grip and hold giving an instant root-lift effect too so adding glorious volume where it's needed.

A hair movement: the wave

At Etro in Milan it was all about the updo's – and the waves. At the back, a vertical tucked in chignon, cleverly taking care of any flyway strands of hair, and up top, a couple of crowing waves. Give your hair a quick curl with an iron to set and add L'Oréal Professionnel's Tecni.Art Wild Stylers 60's Babe Savage Panache Dry Touch Powder Texturizing Spray if you need extra root lift. Easier than it looks!

Turn back time with these effortless looks, and inject a bit of retro glamour in to your modern look!
