Get Audrey Hepburn's Look with Samy & Celebrate 50 Years of Fabulous!

50 years ago this October, Blake Edwards’ timeless classic “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” was released to the world, spotlighting Audrey Hepburn in her most infamous role as Holly Golightly. This film not only secured Hepburn’s place in history as an amazing actress, but also as an undisputed beauty icon.

In celebration of the anniversary, here are some quick tips to get a few of Hepburn’s most memorable looks.

The Sophisticated Chignon

Using a brush to pull hair back smoothly, secure it up into a ponytail positioned in the middle of your head, just below the crown. Wrap the hair hanging from your ponytail into a rosette chignon and secure with bobby pins. Lightly spritz hair with Samy’s The Hairspray to keep your style in place. To keep fly-aways at bay, lightly spritz a blush brush with The Hairspray and smooth it over hair, working back towards the bun.

To Finish the Look: Tie a silk or satin ribbon around the outside of the bun, tucking in the ends and securing them with a pin.

The Smooth Operator

This classically chic look is functional and fabulous! Whether you want to protect your mane from mother nature, or fly under the radar, you will always look like a star with Audrey’s signature head scarf. Simply style hair as desired (or don’t!) and slip on a sleek, silk or satin scarf. Secure the scarf under your chin by tying a loose knot and slip it backwards to let a bit or your hair peek out. Tame bangs with Samy’s Ultra-lightweight Conditioning Serum.

To Finish the Look: Throw on some Ray Ban Wafers and your favorite trench.

The Iconic Audrey

First, apply Samy’s Fat Hair Amplifying Mousse to clean, damp hair to give the hair body. Next, separate hair into three sections, starting by pulling the front to the side and securing with a clip. Part the remaining hair into two sections down the middle, running from the back of the neck to the crown. Pull the right section back and pin it at the top of the part (leaving hair hanging from the pin). Repeat this step with the left section. Twist the two sections of hanging hair together into a loose twist and secure with pins. Create the poof at the crown by backcombing and lifting the hair with the end of a rattail comb while spraying with a strong hold hairspray.

To Finish the Look: Add a tiara or bejeweled hair pin at the front of your bun and spray with Samy’s Fat Hair Amplifying Hairspray.
