Nope - I'm just all dressed up with nowhere to go. :p When I tried my hand at the hairstyle yesterday and today, I didn't backcomb as much as my hairstylist did, so the result looked slightly more casual. Anyway, it's fun to experiment.

^ It's always great to have fabulous looking hair, even if you're just staying at home or going to the supermarket. I just wish I had the time and patience to get my hair to look good everyday. I can barely use a hair straightener and I don't even what to think of what would happen if I tried to backcomb my hair!

I'm not sure about the entire hairstyle (I'd need to see pictures from different angles), but you can achieve volume by backcombing your hair. Just separate your hair into small sections, then lift a section away from your head and run a comb down your hair (in the opposite way you'd normally comb). Then use plenty of hairspray to keep it in place.

Do note, however, that this method won't work very well if you don't have layers in your hair. I'd recommend going to a hairstylist to see what works best with you.

How can I get wavy hair like Amanda Seyfried's in Mamma Mia?
I love Amanda Seyfried's hair in the movie Mamma Mia. Mine is the same length and probably around the same thickness as hers, except mine is so straight. How can I get wavy hair like hers?

Maybe someone could ID these products... backstage from the same Prada show.

ola, i loovvee the look of the sexy-wavy hair at the VS shows and this is just a backstage photo of how they do it!!
But I don't understand what kinda pins they are using in the hair and do i just put them in when my hair is partially dry?? her hair looks soo glossy, i love it. Also, it looks like they are using small strands of hair at the sides and large chunky pieces on top.. plus the hair on the very top don't seem to be rolled very tight.
I think they might be duckbill clips. Those are very useful in styling curly/wavy hair.

Do I have to buy one of those curling irons?

if you have a bobby pin, you could try with them curlying your hair with your hands and pinning it down.

Just curious, is it likely that Audrey is wearing a hairpiece in this photograph? I love the hairstyle and am interested in trying it out on myself, but I'm not sure if it's possible without using a hairpiece. If there is another way (involving plenty of backcombing, I'm sure), can someone please tell me how? Thanks!

Have you checked out ilovegerardo's videos? She has a number of helpful guides, especially if you're going for retro looks. I'm not sure what exactly you're looking for, but hopefully that will help!

it helps if you have a lot of hair. what i do is a high ponytail leaving side parts out of it (very well combed, and a little lose) and the tip below the elastic band or whatever turn it inside and hold it with bobby pins. the mess that remains there i cover it with the side parts of hair.
hope it's understable...
