Brigitte Bardot is an icon for women and men. Her nonchalant sex appeal, wild freedom, and activism made her a powerful role model. Yet her hairdo should not be underestimated in her rise to international idol. Her voluminous half-up half-down hairstyle paired with loose waves made bouffants the style de jour, and her look is still copied today. With the right amount of teasing, you too can bounce around town looking sultry and flirty and fabulous.

blackhead bands

My favorite gym accessory is an extra wide black headband. It’s soft, breathable, comfortable. It keeps my hair in place and lets me tackle my most intensive workouts. I’ve even worn my minimalist band on non-gym days, a trend that is suddenly catching on. Recently seen on the runways at Victoria Beckham and Vera Wang, stretchy headbands were used to polish hairstyles and showcase model’s high cheekbones. The benefits are endless: no flyways, no hair falling into your eyes, and you’ll look sleek and with-it in two seconds.

bouffant

Texture is experiencing a revolution. Exaggerated shapes, over the top volume, and roughed up surfaces are adorning fashionable women and girls for the first time in decades. So, with Valentine’s Day just a day away, this is a great time to try the wow factor glamor of a sexy, sixties style. Bouffants and beehives make you feel like Bridget Bardot, and now that they’ve been re-imagined in half-up styles and French twist hybrids, they also feel fresh and exciting –– I love the combination of structured shape and messy texture. Go add drama to your Valentine’s ensemble with one these oversized shapes! To emphasize the retro feeling, top it off with a mod-inspired scarf.
