My name is Jacqueline Bush and I’m an editorial
in celebrity hairstyles. My clientele has included Faith Hill, Mark
Ruffalo, Terrence Howard, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jane Krakowski. I want to be able to show you that hair isn’t
as intimidating or as hard as you think it is and I want you be able to have fun with
it and do what your vision is with your hairSo now I’m going to show you how to get hair
like the women in “Mad Men” or Betty Draper hair. As you saw from our last clip, “How to Get
Hollywood Glamour,” you’re going to do the same thing, which is what I have already done
to the model. The difference is instead of brushing it out,
you could even brush it out, what I did is I took about inch section on the top of her
head and curled those ones just a little more. In the last video we took larger sections. This time, just on the top of the head, we’re
just taking a little bit smaller sections to give a little more curl on the top of your
head. We’re going to do this all the way around,
I’ve already done this side for you, and I curled these last two pieces away from the
face cause I like a little bit of variation and movement. So, after you do that you’re going to take
some, for me I’m using a styling wax, has a little bit of shine in it cause shine was
very important back then. You’re going to silk that through the hair;
and I’m not brushing the curls too much yet. Then you’re going to take your smoothing brush
with a little hair spray, as we did in our last video, we’re going to do it again. As you notice, I’m not going all the way through
just yet. Then we’re going to brush through the ends. Now, what were going to do is I am going to
have our model turn around for us. The first thing we’re going to do is we’re
going to lift up the top half of the hair; and you know the sectioning doesn’t have to
be really particular on this. We’re going to lift that up, clip it out of
the way, then we’re going to take our smoothing comb and we’re going to tease this part. We’re going to take that clip out. Could spray it a little bit if you’re hair
is a little soft, if you’re hair is too soft that’s what prevents it from holding the style,
so you’re hair needs to be a little rough. Now we’re going to smooth that out, just smoothing
out the curls a little bit. Then what we’re going to do is take a little
rubber band, a small rubber band. If you have long hair this is the trick you’re
going to do, if you have short hair and you already did the curl and brushed it out that
is “Mad Men” Betty Draper hair, the old Hollywood style glamour look. Now if you have long hair like our model does,
what you’re going to do is you’re going to take that whole section of hair, you’re going
to make sure it’s all mainly together. You’re going to put it in a very low ponytail;
you see that pony tail comes about the middle of her back. Then what you’re going to do is you’re going
to take this section, you’re going to tease it underneath. Then, taking my fingers or you can do it with
a comb, you’re going to bring that ponytail through, under one more time, then you’re
going to pull it out a little bit. Then what you’re going to do is you’re going
to pin it underneath. So I have some bobby pins here and this little
pony tail, remember this little teased section, that’s what you’re pinning. So I can go through that little hole that
we have and pin that underneath. And I have shown you, in another video, how
to use bobby pins so you can look that up if you’re confused. Gripping the hair, just making sure that ponytail
stays out, and as you can see, “Oh it’s falling,” I’m going to stick in another little pin. You know, the more precise, the more time
you spend doing this, the cleaner it’s going to look; the less time you spend… If you spend less time on something like this,
it’s ok, but, just make sure the look blends, you know? You can make it a little bit more undone looking
if you spend less time, but you just got to make sure the undone works. You might ask “How would you do that?” You can tease it out a little bit at the end,
pull out some sections so that it doesn’t look like it just sloppily fell you know? Pinning a little more, making that nice “X”
shape. You can use larger bobby pins too; I’m using
the small ones because most of you guys probably don’t have different sized pins at home. Pinning that ponytail right in there to the
nape of her neck. Now we’re going to have our model turn back
around. Now we have most of that hair pinned up, you’re
going to look at it from the front. Now she has this little section here. What we’re going to do is we’re going to pin
that in the shape that we want. So we want a little bit more of the curl to
show, so we’re just going to pin that right here. Just taking that pin and putting it directly
into the hair. Now what I’m going to do is spray again with
hair spray, smooth it, spray a little more, give it a little more control. This is where it’s all about the eyes guys,
because, back then it was about shaping it. And that’s the short way to get “Mad Men”
hair.

  1. Have you ever seen Mad Men or Betty Draper? I can answer that for you…NO you have NOT. That looks nothing like her characters hair. She is not 'old Hollywood' glamour; she is 1960 housewife in the burbs!

  2. @killerteeth – Although I agree Draper is not "sexy", she is that cardboard housewife – this look could be seen as 60's. Think Sophia Loren.

  3. I'm sorry but that looks like crap and no where near Better Draper's hair. Granted, the model is gorgeous (despite her opened mouth) and made the "look," whatever that is, look good. There are many tutorials from non-stylists who can do better and nailed the look!

  4. The front is not so bad but the back looks horrible. I would go out my house like that and Betty's hair in the show is more sleek. Why would you make the front look great only to have the effect ruined by the back

  5. Whoa there. "FML" is a pretty strong response to watching a youtube video where a hairstylist tries to emulate a fictional character's hairdo.

  6. Those people who left those nasty rude comments are super judgemental. I think you did a very good tutorial. I was able to understand a see everything you were doing to create this look. More sixty's mad men tutorials if you don't mind.
    🙂 Keep up the good work.

  7. Could not watch the entire clip, as the model's vapid faecal (typo, I meant facial) expressions were too distracting.
