Glamorous Blonde Body

Fall is the perfect time to indulge in a little style reinvention. Shimmering blonde hair with lots of body and a soft wave is a sexy, retro-glamorous look, and a drop-dead gorgeous way to style your blonde for a big night out—especially on Halloween.

1. Prep Your Blonde

Highlight your full spectrum of gorgeous blonde tones by first washing hair with Sheer Blonde® Highlight Activating Enhancing Shampoo and Conditioner for Lighter Shades or Darker Shades.

2. Create Lift Potential

Gently towel-dry hair, then protect hair against breakage and heat damage by working Full Repair Protecting Root Lift Foam into hair, concentrating on the roots and applying in sections. This foam will help create lasting lift, a key element to this voluminous style. Next, apply Frizz-Ease® Curl Reviver Styling Mousse from roots to ends, which will tame frizz and provide elasticity to keep your hair holding fantastic curl.

3. Get Ready to Style

Begin to blow-dry hair, using a round brush to pull hair up at the roots to maximize volume. Once hair is dry, create a deep side part, and then split hair into a few large sections. This will make it easier to grab smaller sections of hair when you begin to curl.

4. Perfect Curls

Take sections of hair and wrap them around a 1½-inch barrel curling iron, then pin up the curl and secure with a pin or clip. Repeat this all the way around your head. Let the pinned up curls set for about 30 minutes to help this look achieve its maximum effect.

5. Finish the Look

Gently remove the pinned curls and brush out hair with a large paddle brush. Finish by lightly veiling hair with Sheer Blonde® Crystal Clear Shape & Shimmer Hairspray. This hairspray won't dull your shining blonde strands, and will keep amazing hold all night long.

Retro waves like these make a show-stopping look any day of the year. They're also incredibly versatile and would be the perfect starting point to inspire a number of fiercely glamorous Halloween costumes, like a Retro Hollywood Movie Star. Wear a red carpet worthy dress and a classic red lip—plus, make a statement by carrying an award all night long, too.
