Sophisticated, iconic and classic, the beautiful Veronica Lake was famous for an ultra-glamorous impeccable face framing finger wave that has been reinterpreted multiple times since Lake’s 1940’s Hollywood debut.
Although a retro throwback can always hark a bit of Hollywood allure, this ongoing trend of finger waves seems to be taking over every red carpet affair while making the famous hair style increasingly more mundane. Undoubtedly, mega star Jennifer Lopez looked head to toe flawless with an impeccable side swept finger wave at the Golden Globe Awards but it seems hair creativity is certainly diminishing. Among the technology rich culture of social media viral picture postings of inspired hair ideas there is a real disconnect to the lackluster celebrity hair seen in recent months.
Red carpet style should be intriguing and mysterious. Beauty fanatics crave a stimulating red carpet appearance not a tired hair look. Are you over the finger wave trend?
