If you thought the roaring 20s were a thing of the past, think again. The flapper hair-do made a welcomed return in a Great Gatsby inspired setting at the  Flannel Spring Summer 2013's runway show where Redken Artist Jon Pulitano created a modern take on the finger wave hairstyle. The end result was a deep side part tapered in by a polished low bun and elegantly set with a wet look finish.

Given that this vintage glamour is incredibly timeless, and yet very -oh-so-now, we've gone and sourced a how-to that will have you shimmying those (vintage) sequins in no time.


1. Section damp hair into three sections. The lower back half of the head then, divide the front section into two sides, ensuring a very low side part.

2. Then to one section at a time, apply a generous amount of Redken Hardwear 16, working through from the roots to the ends for hold and a wet-look finish.

3. Keeping with the side part, take top sections and begin combing the hair forward towards the face.

4. Use your fingers to sculpt and position the hair into waves. Follow this pattern down the side of the face and around the ears.

5. Tie the hair in a low ponytail. Apply a little more Redken Hardwear 16 to the ponytail and then twist the hair into a tight bun. Secure with pins.

6. Spray the entire head with Redken Forceful 23 super strength finishing spray to give extra hold and a high gloss finish.
