thing about 60s hair is that it ’s big, so rein­tro­duce your­self to the tease and back­comb. ‘Use a vo­lu­mis­ing mousse or a root lifter to prep your roots,’ says hairstylist Bert Ki­et­ze­row. He rec­om­mends curl­ing big sec­tions of the hair with an iron or curl­ing tool, clip­ping th­ese sec­tions and wait­ing for the hair to set. ‘Af­ter a few min­utes, re­lease the hair from the clips and run your fin­gers through the ends for loose waves.’ The trick to bring­ing the bouf­fant back to real-time is mak­ing sure your hair is still touch­able and soft, not over-styled and stiff from too much hair­spray. Nokubonga says this do is more about the length of your hair than the tex­ture. ‘Turned-up vol­ume works well on African hair, too. Skip the vo­lu­miser and curl the hair for an ex­tra boost – and re­mem­ber to use heat pro­tec­tion.’
