Channel your inner rockabilly pinup with these easy hairstyle tips from New York Streets Creative Director Lisa Lobosco.


Step 1: Section off your bang section into a half-moon from eyebrow to eyebrow and separate and tie up for later. Spray roots with New York Streets Dry Shampoo for extra grip. Brush remaining hair back into a smooth high ponytail. Remember: it doesn't have to be perfect, it will mostly be covered by your headscarf.


Step 2: Spray well with New York Streets Hairspray, and move on to the bangs! Bring down the front section and work the sides of the section to smooth the flyaway's, then smooth the top and the bottom with a round brush. Spray bangs with New York Streets Hairspray  and clamp the ends of your bang section into your iron and spread the hair the whole length of it. Roll it back and upwards all the way up to your roots. Release your hair from the iron by clamping and releasing over and over as you slide the iron out. 


Step 3: Work a little New York Streets Clay into “bangs” for hold and continue to roll hair back & up until the ends are completely tucked under. Use a couple of bobby pins to secure by putting your fingers inside the roll and inserting the pins towards the front. Mold the roll a little if desired by pinching and tugging the outsides outward and up slightly.  Next take your scarf and double it over from opposite corners. 


Step 4: Wrap it around the back of your head with the corners pointing upward. Tie a neat little bow at an angle and tuck the back point down into the rest of the scarf. 


Tip: Once set, generously spray New York Streets Hairspray.
