There’s just something about rock n’ roll. Whether it’s the attitude, the edgy vibe or the ease in pulling it off, rock n’ roll hairstyles are one of the most sought after and most fashionable out there.

Guido Palau knows hair and he knows how to make hair go rock n’ roll. For the Marc by Marc Jacobs show, Redken’s Creative Consultant created a rock inspired evening look which he describes as “something you would see at the backstage of a rock concert”. This 2013 hairstyle combines a heavy look on top (thanks to the use of products) with subtle movements on the ends (thanks to a curling iron). Check out our complete how to for this look right after the break.

How to: Marc by Marc Jacobs’ evening rock chic hairstyle

Prep you hair by applying some blow dry lotion. This will protect your hair from the heat and will help you get a silky straight look. For the show, Redken Satinwear 02 prepping blow-dry lotion was used.
Next, blow dry your hair straight. To achieve the best results, do it section by section.
Once you’ve blow dried your hair, apply anti frizz serum like Redken Diamond Oil Shatterproof Shine from root to tips to get rid of unwanted frizz.

Create movement on your hair by using a large barrel curling iron. Lightly bend your hair in large sections starting from the mid lengths. Keep the top of your hair straight for that weighed down look.
Finish this hairstyle by applying a dry shampoo product starting on the mid lengths of your hair to the ends or where you curled. For best results use Redken Powder Refresh 01. This will absorb excess oil and create movement at the ends of your hair.

Whether you are a true rock chic or you just want to be one for the night, this look is perfect for those evenings out. What’s great about this look is you don’t have to clad in leather to pull it off – you can be in a dress and still rock it.
