Glam Rock: Hairstyle

Learnex, English Forever ¡Aprende Inglés para Siempre!

The word glam is a slang of Glamorous.  Glamor means: the attractive or exciting quality that makes certain people or things seem appealing or special. Some synonyms of Glamorous could be attractive, charming or sexy.  When we use this word we can be talking about, also about a rock movement in 70’s developed in the United Kingdom.

Visually this movement was a mesh of various styles, ranging from  glamour, through pin-up sex appeal and symbolist styles, science fiction, to ancient and occult mysticism and mythology.

If you want to have a glam hairstyle you need to consider to have a long or mid-length hair, if yours isn’t, get hold of some extensions and curling tongs, because also you need a slightly wavy hair.

Have a spray on hand. Spraying your hair by medium parts. The spray has to be extra glue and extra sticky. You can teasing with a small vamp brush. You have to tease at the root that´s very important. You can adding a French braid. In general you have to give volume to all your hair. To finish you have to add more spry.
And don’t forget to do a glam makeup with a lot of glitter!
