When The Great Gatsby is finally released in May 2013, the 1920s hair trend will be in full swing. The crop of shorter 1920s hairstyles started to take hold with the TV series Boardwalk Empire and the gorgeousness of Gatsby is sure to make it a major hair trend for 2013.
“Dainty dresses, reduced waistlines and all things Great Gatsby are not only inspiring catwalk fashions, but are shaping hair looks too. From subtle hints to full on flapper ‘dos, this trend is only going to get bigger as the year progresses.”
From Katy Perry to Jason Wu’s S/S 2013 runway hair, Ryan advises you to embrace the trend – but make it your own. “You don’t have to go for a full on finger wave to wear to work every day, if you have a bob, get it cut a little more bluntly, with some slight length at the front. Or on longer hair, tuck the length up to create the illusion of a shorter style and wear it with some waves and body.”
For your 1920s toolkit, Ryan suggests using stylers like Sebastian Stylixer, Texturizer and Liquid Steel. These all provide a strong hold and are perfect for emulating sleek dapper styles.
Revlon Professional‘s new color collection also revives the strong personality of 1920s female icons; women who defied the established aesthetic criteria and embraced rule-breaking and freedom through shorter hair and more masculine attire. Cool ash blondes and deep chestnut browns are key hues for 2013.
