Classic Hairstyles: Marilyn Monroe hairstyle
This classic hairstyle was made famous by Marilyn Monroe in the mid fifties. A full soft sensual style that required roller setting and teasing for lasting results. Similar hairstyles have made a come back in recent times, with blow-dryers taking over from rollers, which makes styling quicker and more natural looking.
Style Tip: large rollers can be used in damp hair, wound across from one side and then down, or alternatively hot rollers can be used on dry hair. Left in for 15 minutes, the rollers are then taken out and the hair is combed up. Teasing is required to form a base at the roots and give a lasting hold. To finish, lacquer the entire hairstyle for extra hold.
