When thinking of glamorous vintage waves, one lady that always comes to mind is Veronica Lake! As one of the most famous femme fatales to grace the silver screen in the 1940’s, she has a lot to be known for. But one element of her style always stood out to me, and many others: her Hair.
As you can see, her blonde hair packs a punch! Her famous peekaboo ‘do was actually created on accident when she was filming a movie and it fell in front of her face. Quickly, it became her trademark, and to this day women around the world want to know how they can get her signature sultry waves.
Well, look no further! I’ve been practicing for a while to get the perfect Veronica Lake look and I am finally ready to share my tips and tricks. Who knew that getting such effortless looking waves took so much effort?!
Luckily, as far as vintage hairstyles go, this one isn’t astronomically technical. However, you will need to follow the setting pattern to get the specific wave pattern Veronica Lake was known for. If you follow the setting pattern, you will be golden no matter how the brush out goes. So, without further ado…
What you’ll need:
- Denman classic styling brush
- Rat-tail comb
- Sponge rollers
- Lottabody setting lotion
- Roll & Go Hair Tool
- Pincurl clips
- Silk scarf
- Smoothing comb
- Firm hold pomade
- Alligator clips
Just follow the steps here and you will be looking like Veronica Lake in no time! This hairstyle is great for all occasions, whether it’s a casual day at home, or a night on the town. It’s sure to wow everyone because it’s classic, yet unique at the same time. You can always jazz up the look with a hair accessory like a flower, or a bling-y clip. The possibilities are endless!
