Australia’s golden couple, Hamish Blake and Zoë Foster Blake, recently celebrated their 10th wedding anniversary.

Their 1964-themed bash was a true blast from the past, complete with vintage frocks and photography, Twiggy-style eye makeup, hilarious wigs and, of course, fabulous hairdos.

As much as we love Hamish’s snazzy bowl cut, we have to hand it to Mrs Foster Blake for absolutely nailing the brief. Paired with an adorable headband veil, it’s safe to say that many of us experienced some serious hair envy.

Because we couldn’t leave you hanging, we’ve enlisted the help of Kristina Youssef, founder of KYK Hair Care, to explain the entire hair styling process so you too can achieve Zoë’s voluminous bouffant.

One

Using a smoothing brush to slick back baby hairs and bumps, gather the top half of your hair so it’s sitting high up on the crown of the head.

Spray a generous mist of hair spray onto the section and, using your smoothing brush, comb back the hair again. This will ensure all your frizz is tamed, while giving the hair a shiny and polished look.

Once the top half of hair is gathered, twist it together for security and use large bobby pins to hold it into place. Position the bobby pins in opposite directions to ensure the half-up will have long-lasting hold.

Four

Apply a volumising powder directly behind the gathered area and backcomb using a teasing brush. This will add necessary height and volume to the style so that, when adding accessories, the hair will still be visible from the front. Make sure to smooth out the top layer of hair after teasing to ensure it appears uniform. Spray another coat of hairspray so the style can hold its shape.

Using a 32mm curler on the ends of the hair, place each section of strands underneath the barrel so they wrap over. This will give a soft flick and texture to the style. Once curled, you can either lightly comb out the pieces for a softer blend or keep a more dramatic ‘flipped’ look by spraying them to hold.
