Lindsey Wixson’s ‘70s-Inspired Hair Is Our Latest Obsession—Here’s Why
Lindsey Wixson's signature rosebud pout isn't the only thing that sets her apart from her fellow high profile models. She also possesses the kind of hair we dream of; beautifully bouncy and the perfect shade of dark ashy blonde. (Seriously, Google her—her mane gives Olivia Palermo's a run for its money.) In her latest shoot, Alice McCall's Cruise campaign, Wixson might be giving her best hair yet. Serving up '70s-meets-2016 vibes, the model's curls are stunning.

According to hairstylist Luke Chamberlain who coiffed Wixson for the shoot, her hair was inspired by Bianca Jagger and Jerry Hall: "The women of Mick Jagger’s life, pretty much." Tapping into the Studio 54 trend we saw most recently at A/W 16 shows like Fendi and Jeremy Scott, Chamberlain delivered a '70s-inspired look so covetable we're already planning our upcoming summer soirees around it. (Because any excuse to try out this trend will do.)
The How-To: Hair.
To create Wixson's look, Chamberlain prepped hair with Bumble and Bumble's Thickening Spray ($43), then blowdried the product in using a medium-sized round brush for added volume. Next, he misted on Oribe’s Superfine Hair Spray for hold, and curled one-inch sections of hair using a 3/4-inch marcel iron. (FYI, marcel irons are pro tools that feature a manual clip, giving the stylist more control over the final finish. Feel free to use your regular curler instead.) To finish, Chamberlain spritzed Sachajuan's Volume Powder ($40), (a texturising dust and dry shampoo hybrid) all over and raked it through with fingers for that signature '70s fluffy texture.
The How-To: Makeup.
Wixson's makeup was just as magic, with makeup artist Natasha Severino using Sisley skincare and a Clarisonic to prep skin for the best possible canvas. (See? Even mega models need a little extra help achieving flawless skin.) Wixson's subtle disco eye is gorgeous, and according to Severino, not that difficult to recreate. To DIY, wash MAC's Eye Shadow ($33) in Era all over the lid, then line top and bottom lashlines with MAC's Chromagraphic Pencil ($32) in Black Black. Next—and this is key to the sultry, worn-in finish, smudge the lines with a brush and/or cotton buds. For extra intensity add cream liner on top (on the top lashline only), and load lashes with mascara.
