Celebrity hairstyles have influenced us for thousands of years. Ever since Cleopatra first coined the idea that she could use her hairstyle to enhance her power and fame, women all over the world have mimicked the hairstyles and hair care rituals of the rich and famous in order to try and harness a little of that glory for themselves.
Here is an outline of how to use some of the best quality salon hair care products on the market to replicate and maintain the most popular celebrity hairstyles of recent times: 'The Farrah', 'The Rachel' and 'The Pob'.
Farrah Fawcett's flip was the predecessor of 'The Rachel' of the 1990s, spawning a zillion copycat hairstyles back in the 1970s. Both styles achieved enormous worldwide popularity, though the styles themselves couldn't be more different. Many celebrities have put a modern spin on the Farrah flip, creating backwards-facing curls which are softer than the Charlie's Angels star's original, for a more chic and subdued look.
The initial hairstyle needs to be created in a salon for the best effect; here are some tips for hair care options to maintain The Farrah. Apply a texturizing lotion to wet hair for texture and volume and blow dry the hair upside down from side to side. Use a paddle brush to increase volume and smooth the hair.
The popularity of US TV show 'Friends' in the 90s was evident, not just from the mountain of column inches and video sales, but also from the sudden craze for a particular hairstyle. Jennifer Aniston's character, Rachel Green, had a haircut in season one and two of the show which became so popular that it was named after her and replicated in hair salons all over the world.
'The Rachel', also known as 'The Rachel Shag' and 'The Rachel Haircut', is a bouncy, square layered hairstyle which can be created initially in the salon and maintained with regular hair straightening. Volume can be added successfully using a volumising product by a top hair care brand and a salon quality shine serum will complete this glossy look.
Victoria Beckham may have started out as Posh Spice, the slightly moody one in the Spice Girls, but ever since she started associating with football legend David Beckham, the world has been transfixed by her fashion and style choices, and she remains one of the most influential forces in fashion. The famous asymmetric bob hairstyle, the 'Pob', also known as the 'Posh bob', was popularised by Victoria in 2006 and has led to a surge in short haircuts for women all over the world ever since.
Again, the initial 'Pob' cut is best achieved at a salon but there are plenty of hair care products which will help make the most of a Pob. Firstly, use a texturising shampoo and conditioner and dry with anti-frizz balm by a salon hair care brand. When dry, add a volumising mousse and use wax to spike and separate longer strands.
