Gatsby Style

Have you seen Baz Luhrmann’s “The Great Gatsby” yet?  If not, go see it.  I re-read the book last summer (for fun, because I am a nerd), and I was very happy with the movie.  It seemed loyal to the book and it created an opulent world filled with eye-popping style. 

If you check out Gatsby (and you must!) you'll have so many beauty and style questions to answer, like:
  • Just how does one create sleek waves? 
  • What shade of deco red rouge is appropriate for both a Gatsby-themed office party and a Saturday night dinner date?
Hair: Nexxus Youth Renewal™ Rejuvenating Elixir, $17.99 
Show up to the nightly outdoor summer parties with a perfectly styled wavy bob. Nexxus Creative Director Kevin Mancuso recommends using “a curling iron to create waves then brush hair straight down.” Preserve and strengthen your look with the new Nexxus Youth Renewal™ Rejuvenating Elixir and finish it off with a perfectly-placed headband.
Availability: Nexxus Youth Renewal™ products are available at mass, drug and grocery stores nationwide.
