Style icon Marilyn Monroe has been popular for her signature hairstyle. She succeeded in building an image that defines one of a kind make up and fashion trend, along with a classic hairstyle that is still worn by a lot of modern women. Her overall look is considered trendy in different eras. The reason behind may be her pretty face or rocking body. But when one thinks of Marilyn Monroe, soft curls always come to mind.
This may be the reason why Hollywood celebrities are still spotted donning this look on various red carpet moments. Brides have also bitten the trend and wear the Marilyn Monroe curls on vintage-themed weddings. Grooms, guests and fashion experts then agree that this ‘do creates magic in that women can effortlessly radiate sex appeal and elegance.
Note that there are different versions of the Marilyn Monroe curls. Some pages of the magazine may showcase elaborately made tiny curls that frame the faces of short-haired women, while some may feature a close-to-flapper style look. What defined the style icon though are the soft curls positioned at an angle that effectively frame her face.
Doing a Marilyn Monroe hairdo is easier for women with shoulder length or shorter hair. Brides with longer hair may fake the length of the hair with a nape bun, but this may be a bit tricky for them. Medium sized foam rollers or traditional hot rollers are needed to create this style.
Step 2: Get the rollers and roll the section of the hair inward. Roll the sections that frame the face in such a way that the curls would be angled towards the face, rather than horizontal. The trick is to roll the hair sections in the rollers in a clockwise motion.
Step 3. Keep the rollers in the hair until it dries. Ideally after a couple of hours, take the rollers out. Arrange the curls in front so that they frame your face using only your fingers.
Step 4. After you’re satisfied with the curls, apply strong or flexible hold hairspray.
For an effective face framing, some brides may choose to pin a few strands of hair at the side with trendy jewelled clips or bobby pins. This look can be sexy especially for brides with long slender necks. On most cases though, women add a vintage headpiece positioned at the side of the head.
Veils may not be the best accessory to use, but clip-on face nets can revamp the vintage theme of the wedding. And when you have the Marilyn Monroe curled hairstyle, the makeup should be the next thing that you should pay attention to.
Experts suggest that brides emphasize the lips with bright red lip
