Katy Perry Retro Waves

The singer looked like a modern version of Veronica Lake for a recent ‘Tonight Show’ appearance—Here’s how you can copy her cascading waves!

Katy Perry loves to play with her look! For a June 21 appearance on NBC’s The Tonight Show With Jay Leno, the super star channeled Old-Hollywood glamour with a modern twist. The look is pretty & polished yet Katy, 27, gave it her signature purple-haired twist. 

When you’re channeling Old-Hollywood hair, the key is to wear a side part and keep your waves neat and uniform. A curling iron like Conair MiniPRO You Curl Ceramic Clipless Curler is the right tool for the task since the barrel is wide, which will create bigger waves. Starting by your ear, wrap one-inch sections of hair around the barrel. Once you’ve curled your entire head, brush through the waves so they become uniform. Set with a flexible hold hairspray.
