Los Angeles: Planning to revisit iconic hairstyles such as bouncy bob and beehive, try an expert`s tips to get it right.

Michael Douglas, director of Silvikrin Style, shares tips on how to recreate the most iconic looks from the past century,

* The Bouncy Bob: The loosely curled, buoyant bob epitomises Hollywood glamour through the ages and it can be recreated in a few simple steps:

Step 1: When the hair is still damp, spritz with some gel spray and blow dry until the hair is about 50 percent dry, so you can make the most of what I call the wet-set technique!

Step 2: Straight after blow-drying, pop some rollers into the hair. With each roller, roll down and forward towards the front, which will beautifully frame the face. Leave in until the hair dries completely

Step 3: Once dry, take out the rollers and start to gently run a small bristle brush through the hair to lightly break down the set curls

Step 4: Finally, use your hands and hairspray to sculpt the style into place for a natural looking, bouncy finish. To add a stylish touch, create a deep side parting and tuck one-side of the style behind the ear for an asymmetrical twist.

* The Beehive: This hair do exudes 1960s style. Even today, it is a firm favourite on red carpets and catwalks alike. Here’s how to achieve the look at home:

Step 1: Begin by blow drying wet hair with a round bristle brush and an apple sized ball of mousse. Distribute evenly through the hair until completely dry

Step 2: Next, if you have time, add a loose wave to the hair using large-barrel tongs. This is a great little trick to help keep the beehive’s famous backcombing in place

Step 3: Now for that all-important backcombing! Make sure you backcomb all of the hair from the roots to the mid-lengths, using a fine toothcomb to achieve as much height as possible

Step 4: Follow this by smoothing back the surface of the backcombed hair, taming it with short bursts of hairspray for a sleek and controlled finish

Step 5: Finally, brush the hair backwards and pin into shape using Kirby grips to fix the style in place. For a modern twist, try leaving some strands out at the front or else simply keep the height at the crown with the back section a little looser for a more relaxed look.
