PRAVANA Celebrity Stylist Sacha Quarles Talks Retro-Chic Hair Trends

April 20, 2012

Still trying to figure out how you feel about the wet, slick hairstyle of Spring 2012? Then go big!  Maybe consider the 1960’s inspired soft voluminous curls spotted on Adele at the Grammy Awards?   According to PRAVANA Celebrity Stylist Sacha Quarles, the hottest hairstyles this spring all fall under the umbrella of retro chic.   “There has definitely been a resurgence of elegance,” says Quarles.  “Instead of messy bed-head looks, expect to see more ‘done’ looks with a period feel.”

Quarles shares that the film industry is following suit.  “Period-inspired styles can be seen in two upcoming blockbuster films I’ve recently worked on.”  Men in Black III – starring Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones, Emma Thompson, Josh Brolin and Alice Eve – travels back in time to the 1960s, and Gangster Squad – starring Josh Brolin, Ryan Gosling, Sean Penn and Emma Stone – is set in the 1940s to 1950s. With films like these and The Great Gatsby set to hit the big screen in the near future, Hollywood seems to be on board for the resurgence of classic hairstyles.

Here are a few tips on how to recreate Adele’s retro-inspired hairstyle:


For Adele’s 1960s Soft Voluminous Curls:

  • Apply a heat protectant, such as PRAVANA Perfection Blow dry Spray, to hair prior to curling; this is essential for protecting the health of hair
  • Curl hair using hot rollers or a curling iron
  • Let the set cool while you apply your makeup
  • Take the set down, part and brush hair
  • After you have your shape in place, tease the base for a retro look and comb out
