Hairstyles 2012 - Beautiful Bouffants

It has been said that it was Mary Antoinette who first sported the bouffant hairstyle back in the 18th century. However it wasn’t until the 1960’s that this hairstyle became a major trend thanks to a number of style icons such as Jackie Kennedy, Audrey Hepburn and Bridgette Bardot pictured below. 

Today this retro hairstyle has definitely made a big come back with celebrities and the catwalks celebrating this vintage inspired hairdo. The hairstyle is characterized by height and fullness at the crown that can be styled in many different ways from a ponytail to a half-up hairstyle to a classic up-style. To get the perfect bouffant hairstyle you need to get plenty of volume at the roots and the key to achieving this is backcombing and plenty of it! Bouffant hairstyles can only really differ in terms of volume. To make your face appear slimmer opt for a sky high bouffant, however if you want a more modern take on the hairstyle keep the bouffant small or add some curls to give the hairstyle a more up to date look or for a more playful look try adding a scarf. 

Celebrities such as Adele, Miley Cyrus and Rihanna have all donned bouffant hairstyles.

The bouffant hairstyle was all over the Autumn/Winter 2012 catwalks of Carolina Herrara, Oscar de la Renta and Moschino. 

If your a fan of this look, book your bouffant hairstyle with one of SalonAddict's member salons.
