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.

I have tried doing this hair style with other brands of curlers, but haven’t been able to master it. 🙁 With my previous experience with VS Sassoon products, I’m sure I’d be able to with this. 😉 It would be a great look in the evening when you want something a little less boring than your everyday ‘do.

  23. This look is perfect for any style – retro, refined, feminine, graceful. And this look can only be achieved by us if we own the VS Sassoon miniPRO Ceramic Tongs

    Up, down, long curls, straight hair, plaits, natural and even bed hair. I’d love to win this prize to so effortlessly be able to create her look and I could even have fun and venture outside the box to create my own hairdo that might even cause a fashion trend of its own. Hmmmm, decisions, decisions – my creative juices are flowing!!

  25. I have been to several car shows dressing up in 1950’s rock and roll skirts and would love an easier way to do my hair up to match the outfits

  26. I would love this mini pro set of tongs as i am going to the hairdressers tomorrow and i know i come out feeling great. And i would love to have that wonderfull feeling more often and with these tongs i feel this would be possible. I just wish i was lucky enough to win as money is tight . The hairdressers is my one luxury that i save for.

  27. I have my 20 year high school reunion in October and expect I will spend (too) many hours in front of the mirror deciding what to do with my hair – love the photo you provided of Scarlett Johansson…that’s plan A.

  28. A chance to look like Scarlett Johansson? Yep, I’d take that! 🙂 But I’d also take any chance to have big hair AND look fashionable doing it. Flat hair drags my face down and makes me feel boring.
