We’ve all had that time when we styled our hair for a night out, slept on it because we’re too tired and the next day we wake up loving the hairstyle even more. For the Marc Jacobs spring / summer 2013 show, this slept in style was incorporated with one of the biggest hair trends of 2013: namely, 1960s hairstyles. The result is a teased, ’60s bouffant look that looks a bit rough around the edges.

It was Guido Palau, Redken’s Creative Consultant, who was behind this chic vintage inspired look. He personally describes this look as “a styled-then-slept-in look: this girl had a glamorous hairstyle the night before, and this is it the moment she gets up the next day and is maybe walking down the street for a coffee”. Lucky for us, getting this gorgeous slept in look is easy and we’ve got the steps right after the break.

How to: Marc Jacobs slept-in sixties hair

Start working on this look by prepping damp hair with some volumizing spray. This will give that sixties volume you will need.
To get the sleek ponytail that’s at the back of this look, you’ll next need to blow dry your hair straight.
Create a deep side part. The one for this look is done on the left and it really doesn’t have to be a clean part.

Now it’s time to get that ’60s volumized look. For the Marc Jacobs show Redken’s quick tease 15 was used. If you are using this, hold up sections of your hair up straight and then spray it on the roots. Continue holding it up as it dries and just let it fall. Do this all over for a really volumized look. In the absence of tease spray, you can always go back to classic teasing.
Gather all your hair into a low ponytail but make sure you leave some height on top for that bouffant look.

For an extra matte finish, you can dust some mattifying powder like Redken’s powder refresh 01.
Finish the look off by pulling a few wisps out of your ponytail. This will add to that slept in look.
