Remington Vintage Glamour Evening

Last week Remington invited a group of bloggers to vintage clothing boutique Lucy In Disguise for an evening of hair and clothing dressage.

Remington Session Stylist Chris Appleton and his team were on hand to show us how to create on-trend retro styles with the latest Remington styling tools in the boutique’s very own parlour and I’ve got to say, it was a brilliant evening.

Having short hair, I am usually quite limited in options. Most of the other girls had lovely long tresses to create glamour-puss Rapunzel hairstyles. However when my stylist Evie took one look at me, she squealed and knew exactly what to do with my barnet.

She went straight for The Bardot, explaining my length was just perfect for this style.

With a spot of back-combing from the roots and loads of hair spray she held my hair in place with hair-pins and finished off my fringe with a lift from Remington’s Keratin Therapy Pro Volume Brush (£29.99) from their Keratin Therapy range designed not only to style hair but also protect.

Et voila! Party hair!

I had no idea I could do something like this and so easily (in about 5 minutes) – that’s less time than it takes to run a straightener through.

No one sees me with my hair up so I surprised quite a few including my work colleagues (yeah, I managed to sleep in it and the style remained intact!)

Feeling confident, I attempted it for a night out on Saturday and although the back was a little messy, I think I did alright.

You too can have fun recreating a classic hair-do with Remington’s styling video.

    I second what Ruksana says, would love to know how to do this with short hair.
