Gabrielle Union’s retro waves
Why it works:
Ms. Union makes this wavy updo look effortlessly chic with an easy elegance that channels old Hollywood. A deep side part with a large face-framing wave accentuates her eyes and compliments her round face.
Work in a dime to quarter size of smoothing crème into your tresses to hydrate and ease any frizz you may have. Create curls all over with a 1″ barrel curling iron and then pull into a low bun to the side, pinning the curls, and allowing loose strands to fall around your face.
Fight face-framing layers into submission. Embrace them instead by pinning up the back and allowing shorter strands to slip out. A few twists around a large barrel curling iron will give them bounce and shape.
