This is a superfly beauty look from top model, Jourdan Dunn. Featured in the December issue of Vogue Japan, the colorful editorial sees the return of crimped hairstyles. Unlike the eighties, when crimps looked steely-tough, modern crimps are softer, fluid, add texture, volume, and visual interest. They also work with a bun or a twist. With narrower, shallower ridges, today’s crimping tools are helping the evolution. They are more versatile and can be used to create a tailored look. For tips on adding crimping to your own beauty routine, click style notes.

Step: Use styling whip or volume foam and apply from root to ends of dry hair.

Step: Quickly blow-dry the hair with hands, creating a loose natural texture.

Step: Mist the entire head with protective thickening lotion to shield the hair from the heat of the crimper. Take quarter-inch sections and begin crimping from root to ends. Work from the back of the head to the front.

Step: Once crimped, style as you like it. For a tousled top-knot, pull the crimped hair to the top of the head and twist hair into a bun. Pin with bobby pins.

Step: Keep ponytails low-slung. Sweep hair back and add a dynamic creative edge by using a few strands of crimped hair in lieu of an elastic band. Wind it round the pony and tie like a band.
