Beauty regrets… we’ve all been there! Whether it be plucking your eyebrows a little too thin or applying that extra layer of fake tan that turned you into an Oompa-Loompa for that special event however many years ago. It’s happened with our hair too, let’s not forget Christina Aguilera’s platinum blonde hair with black streaks that we thought would be a great idea to copy in the early 00’s or even the teased side ponies we used to love back in high school.
Thankfully, we can leave our cringe-worthy beauty mistakes in the past (unless our friends have photos that is). Despite the beauty slip-ups, we all have a handful of our favourite looks that will never age. Isn’t it funny how we never regret going for a classic look? How soft, glamorous curls will compliment any outfit for any occasion or how a classic bob will always accentuate our favourite facial features regardless of the year?
In 2017, style doesn't necessarily require an on-trend Instagram outfit, a bag that costs half of your life savings or a Kardashian-like contour. Style comes from taking inspiration from the world around you and making it your own, complimented with timeless hair and makeup! Funnily enough, these hair looks are often the most simple and the easiest to achieve.
The first step is to make sure your hair is in the best condition possible and we suggest starting with your favourite bhave shampoo and conditioner. Next, decide what iconic look you’re going to channel, arm yourself with the right products and rock it with confidence!
LOOKS WE LOVE!
Classic Hollywood bombshell waves! Believe it or not, these photos of Grace Kelly and Scarlett Johansson were taken 50 years apart! Achieve this look by prepping your locks with the bhave riot oil then applying the bhave volumising foam from roots to tips. Next, curl your hair with your weapon of choice - whether it be a curling wand, a straighter or a hair drier and barrel brush for a slightly softer look. Lastly, apply bhave fresh ends to the bottom of your hair and lightly brush out your curls to reveal those iconic waves. Finish with a light hairspray to ensure your waves keep you looking like a Victoria’s Secret Angel all day.

Got yourself some fabulous natural curls? Own it like Diana Ross and Beyonce! To keep your natural curls in check, first, apply bhave volumising foam to towel dried hair from roots to tips to add volume. Second, once dried, grab your bhave curl defining creme and comb through using your fingers to beef up your curls and help fight off any unwanted frizz. Thirdly, apply a small amount of bhave fresh ends to your ends and last but definitely not least, rock it like the original Queens, Diana and Queen B!

Nothing says classic quite like Audrey Hepburn - which is probably why a cute pixie cut has never gone out of style. To ensure your pixie cut is styled to perfection, start with bhave gunpowder to add volume, texture and to hold your hair in place. Want a slightly sharper look? Simply add some bhave styling paste to add extra shape and definition that will have heads turning all day!

Elegance and sophistication will forever be channeled through a classic bob cut - as demonstrated by the ever stylish Jackie Kennedy and Natalie Portman. Own your bob and create body using the bhave volumising foam from roots to tips. Keep your cut crisp and clean by using bhave riot oil through the bottom of our hair and say goodbye to those unwanted split ends. Finally, comb through bhave super nova to prevent frizz and leave your locks looking soft and glossy.

TIP : Style comes naturally to some people, but luckily style is something that anyone can learn and refine over time. Find a style that suits you, your face, personality and something that is easy to achieve. Ask your hairdresser for an honest opinion. Take photos and magazine shots, but listen when a professional tells you it might not be right for you.
Whatever your classic signature style is - own it with confidence because it’s your hair, your life and your rules.
