Beauty Crush: Gidget


Growing up I had a friend that my mom would refer to as Gidget because her hair was always flipped dramatically up in a brown bob that never moved. Even when we were playing soccer or the morning after a slumber party, her hair always had that flip, and her perpetually peppy personality added even more to her Gidget doppelgänger quality.

As an awkward middle-schooler with braces and frizzy, difficult-to-tame locks, Gidget's flipped-out hairstyle was the epitome of chic to me. I imagined myself playing on the beach in a retro polka-dot, ruffled bikini, with sun-kissed skin, flipped hair and light pink, kissable lips.



I was a Gidget wannabe and spent many hours perfecting the hair flip, which required a round brush a hair dryer and hours of smoothing and curling. Luckily, my hair was thick enough to hold the flip in place. To get Gidget's flirty flip, start by squeezing a dab of Biosilk Silk Therapy onto your hand and massage through wet hair to protect it from the heat of the blow dryer. Using a good round brush, like this Frederic Fekkai Large Round Brush, blow your hair dry, pointing the heat on the ends curled around the brush until the curl sets.

Dab a little of Clinique's Superbalm Moisturizing Gloss on your lips for Gidget's pretty pink pout and you've got a beauty look to complement that perfectly coiffed, yet free-spirited flip.
