Scarlett Johansson’s Retro Flip Hair

Read on for your chance to win!


Stylists to the stars (clients include Kim Kardashian, Kanye West and MIA), British born New York based hair stylist Sheree Lunn is one of the most trusted names in the biz. Sheree is known for her fab of-the-moment styling and she sat done with us recently to show us how to do the perfect Retro Flip as seen on fellow New Yorker Scarlett Johansson.

“This look is hot right now because it’s a great way for a mid-length hairstyle to take on a retro evening look. It brings attention to your eyes and looks polished in a chic pin up kind of way. Pair it with a lick of rose coloured lipstick, a dusting of blush and a belted dress and you’re transformed into a retro goddess in moments. “

Here’s how to create the look at home:

Step 1: Wash and dry hair with your VS Sassoon Big Hair Styler, which dries, smooths and shines hair in one go, while adding volume. The rotating motorised brush combined with hair dryer can be held in one hand making it all very easy.

Step 2: Create an off-center part.

Step 3: Take small parallel sections of hair from parting and curl upwards holding the VS Sassoon miniPRO Ceramic Tong at 45 degrees.
This tool is ideal for the glamour girl on the go, not only does its high heat and ceramic barrel distribute heat evenly for silky, smooth results but its dual voltage allows for worldwide use.

Step 3: Continue to do this working around the head, so the root of the hair is flat, and the ends are curled upwards. Remember curling the hair around the back can be less important, as it will be pinned up anyways.

Step 4: Once all hair is curled, use a brush and your fingers to break up the curls for a softer look and pull up into a messy bun, using your hands to place hair so it flips away from the face.

Step 5: Play around with your hair to ensuring hair is flat on the crown, and all hair should be curled upwards from the mid level of the sections into the retro flip. Spray.

Professional tip…

Make sure you have a mirror so you can check yourself out from a profile and see that the proportion of the flip looks good from every angle.

  1. The good thing (sometimes I think the only good thing) about having fine wavy hair is that when I do want to create a wave like Scarlett’s it actually works. I do love this look – very Evita!

  2. I’m trying to do my hair with vicory rolls and have a vintage look I love this look it’s jsut works and looks classic

  3. Just had my hair cut after many years of having it long and now I want to be able to style it with some curls as when my hair was long the curls just fell out

  4. There’s a reason this gorgeous hairstyle is so classic, it’s the perfect way to look pretty and classy, and if it’s good enough for Scarlett it’s certainly good enough for me!

  5. This retro look matches my retro age but easily brings me into Scarlett’s 21st century! Love it! 😀

  6. Recreating at home this retro look at my leisure,
    Would see this lass turning “scarlett” with pleasure!!

  7. This hairstyle would be a fresh and classy change from my flat, straight and boring locks. It’s bold, without making me look like Lady Gaga!

  8. Its a timeless look but has a fresh modern feel to it as well..looks stunning! Would like to try it!

  9. Am working hard to reinvent myself as newly single. I would love a new “hair look” to go with my new body.

  10. I have a fancy dress party to go to and this would suit my look that I am going for …..

  11. I need some fifties style,
    because I’ve already got the red-stained smile.
    I want to beguile,
    I haven’t done that for a while!

  12. Scarlett is my husband’s “one free pass”. You know how couples let each other have one superstar fantasy, that if they ever got the chance to hook up with, they could (like it would ever happen, but you know what I mean!).
    Well anyway, as his is Scarlett, I figure if I looked a little more like her, I might get a bit more…….well…. you know where I am going with this 🙂

  13. Getting older, but am so-o-o plain!
    Would love to have trendy hair again!
    Mini-pro ceramic tongs WOULD ~(VSSASSOON guarantees)
    create for me, this retro flip style, with ease!

  14. I would love to wear the look to my sons coming wedding, my hair is fine and thin and theres not much I can do with it!

  15. This look is a really professional look that I could do with right now. My hair is being exceptionally unruly and frizzy and this would hide these attributes nicely.
    This look also screams personality to me such as a strong sense of character, the capacity for inner strength, high ambition and loads of confidence. So as a woman in 2012 who wouldn’t want this look!
