My Week With Marilyn Part 2: Emma Watson

Last week saw the release of top British film My Week with Marilyn which is based on two books by Colin ClarkThe Prince, the Show Girl and Me and Me and My Week with Marilyn . The film tells us of the week that the original blonde bombshell Marilyn Monroe spent with Clark as she was escorted around Britain. It stars the fabulous Michelle Williams as Monroe herself supported by the gorgeous Emma Watson.

In the film, Emma Watson shows us she looks every bit gorgeous whether with short pixie or medium length hair. Emma’s hair is very much inspired by Jean Shrimpton (the most beautiful supermodel of the 60’s).

For sleek and glossy hair similar to that of Emma Watson’s, I would recommend cleansing the hair in Regis Designline’s brand new Enchanted Shampoo and Conditioner which has been flying off the shelves in our Trafford Centre salon! Everyone just can’t get enough of it! It’s shine enhancing properties make the shampoo a must have over the party season and is ideal for any type of hair wanting a shine.

To dry the hair, I would use the Get It Pressed Spray, for the ultimate sleekness as well as some Designline Texture Cream Casual Styler to give that 60’s retro-style edge. Paddle brush dry to begin with, direct the airflow of the hair dryer in the opposite direction to that of what the hair falls.

The hair should be at least 80% dry (damp) at this stage. Then working up in small one inch sections from the nape of the neck, using a size 3 bristle brush, smooth out the hair wrapping the ends of the hair gently around the brush giving it a soft bounce.

To smooth out further, start at the nape, taking small sections gently glide the irons away from the head in a slight 45 degree angle. This will keep the volume and bounce to the style yet still add smoothness.

Retro styles are certainly one to watch this season with icons such as Marilyn Monroe and Jean Shrimpton, who set the trend in the 50’s and 60s, inspiring today’s hair and fashion. Women are still doing it now, even in the 21st century! We continue to admire these style icons and it shows with our current class of celebrities and their looks.

Alexa Chung has taken inspiration from Diane Keaton and her androgynous style, and Adele is taking her 60’s influence from the very famous Brigitte Bardot. But behind this season’s must-have trend is Ali McGraw who has influenced this seasons must have centre-parting style.

So why not give the retro glam look a go yourself at home or pop into your local Regis salon and we’ll do it for you! We love it, do you?
