Retro Rejuvenation – wavy lob vs slick pixie

  • v/s"
Today we face off two rejuvenated retro hair 'dos – the wavy lob vs. slick pixie!

Sometimes being fashion forward is all about looking back. Today we face off two rejuvenated retro hair 'dos – the wavy lob vs. slick pixie! Which will be your favourite?

Our inspiration for this Match The Look comes straight from the runways of AW1819 New York Fashion Week – in particular the Cushnie Et Ochs show, which showcased models wearing a selection of vintage inspired hairstyles paired against cutting edge contemporary clothing inspired by architect Zaha Hadid.

Wavy Lob

This wavy lob comes complete with a deep side part and subtle wave in the hair from the ears down. The effect of having the hair pulled back behind the model's ears gives the whole look a more polished appearance, and the darker lip/bejewelled earring harks back to the Gatsby glamour of days gone by. Incorporate a product like by Dual Stylers into towel dried hair, and define the curls using a thick tonged curling iron. Use your fingers to create one big glamour wave under each ear rather than individual curls. You could even secure your locks with a couple of barrettes if you want to take this look to the next level!

Slick Pixie

This slick and sleek platinum pixie also has a vintage feel, helped along with the simple makeup and accessories. There's nowhere to hide when your hair is this short, so make sure you're feeling bold if you want to brave such a striking style! With hair this sleek, all focus is on your face, and it's a great excuse to whip out that new lipstick you've been dying to try! Work with darker shades if you want to recreate some old world glamour. Sculpt the side part with a fine toothed comb to keep yourself looking super polished, and use a product like to set this look in place.

So which retro 'do are you ready to throw back to? Vote now in match the look!
