Throughout each decade trends change, evolve and create something new while pulling on the inspiration of the past. Knowing about the styles of each era is important to creating new ideas and starting new trends. In this series, Sherri Jessee compiled some of the most popular trends of recent times with how-to’s for each. For motivation and education, see how she created each look below.
50’s Classic Coif
The classic looks that became popular on the Red Carpets of Hollywood are the perfect style for any party.
1. Using a 1” curling iron, curl hair section by section all in the same direction. Be sure to spray each section with a heat protecting flat iron spray. (I used Rusk Thermal Flat Iron Spray).
2. Brush curls into shiny waves using a smoothing brush.
3. Longer hair can be easily pinned up to create the illusion of shorter length.
The easiest way to recreate this mod style is to take carefree curls and position them high on the head, creating an easy up-style.
1. Section hair from ear to ear and brush the section behind the ears up and secure into a ponytail. 3. Loosely scatter curls and secure in a random pattern with bobby pins. 4. Create a deep side part and sweep front section across forehead and pin securely for an alluring fringe. 5. Spray all over for hold and shine with Sherri Jessee Stay Extra Hold Hairspray.
70’s Pony Up.
Sleek ponies are the chic answer to second-day hair and go great with a pair of bell bottoms! To achieve this simple look follow a few simple steps.
1. Smooth hair back into a high ponytail and secure with a covered elastic. 2. Divide hair into two sections. 3. While twisting the two sections counter clockwise, simultaneously wrap them together. 4. Clip in a chic accessory like this gorgeous flower.
Wild texture reminiscent of 80s rock bands is back and better than ever and with a few products, you can easily create an 80s style of your own!
1. Be sure to prep hair with a heat protecting spray for long-lasting curls. Then wrap random sections around a curling iron, pulling some to add variation. *Pro tip: Using clip-in extensions are a great way to add length and volume if needed. 2. Once hair is curled/waved, spritz Texture Spray throughout, separating curls/waves as you move around the head. If more volume is needed, you may need to tease a few sections to achieve the desired height.
As preferred stylist and a sponsor for the MISS VIRGINIA USA organization, I have the honor to work with the title holders. I do their hair and makeup for beauty shoots, consult with them regarding their beauty routines and do hair color and cuts, when needed. In this article, I will share photos of the past 3 year’s blonde beauties that I have had the pleasure of working with.

1. Prep. Begin with clean, moisturized skin. Tweeze any stray brows.
2. Eyebrow Powder. Use an angled brush and light brown shadow to fill in and correct eyebrow shape. For extra drama, be sure to emphasize the arch.
3. Shadow Primer. Using a concealer brush, apply to entire lid. You can also lightly tap on to any blemishes to conceal.
4. Pale eye shadow. Brush over entire lid. This can be worn alone and also provides a nice base for additional colors.
5. Brown Shadow. Gently sweep brown shade just over the curve of the eye and blend. This helps emphasize the eyes, creating the illusion of depth.
6. Superwear Gel Eye Liner. Go close to the lash line on the top and line the water-line on the bottom. For more drama, use a flat brush and smudge the liner with an accent color of choice.
7. Lashes. Apply single lashes. When using a strip lash, trim it to fit your eye and allow the glue to dry about 30 seconds before applying as close to the lash line as possible.
8. Mascara. Brush on mascara to combine your lashes with false lashes. Apply to the upper and lower lashes. Be sure to comb out any clumps for a natural appearance.
9. Foundation. Air brush is great for flawless coverage. If not available, use a foundation brush to lightly apply foundation…or a powder brush to apply mineral powder to even skin tone.
10. Lip Color. Use a lip brush to apply long wear lip color. Go just outside the natural lip line and fill in entire lip. Allow to dry and add lipstick or gloss, if desired.
11. Blush. Using angled blush brush, sweep cheek color from apples of the cheeks into the hairline.
12. Contour and Highlight. Apply light tan/taupe shade to the hollows of the cheeks. For more drama, you can also lightly sweep under the jawline, and down the sides of the nose. For more drama, apply highlighter above the cheek bone, on the brow bone, and on the bow of the lip.
