Want Reese Witherspoon’s look in ‘Water For Elephants’? Grab your bobby pins!

Mae West, Reese Witherspoon, and Jean Harlow

Reese’s bobbed hair is beautifully set into a period specific finger wave. A finger wave is a style that is usually “wet set” or comb styled on wet hair into ridges and arcs then dried into form. No curlers or iron curls are needed just the crafty use of a comb and pinning using shampoo set clips.

In the film, Reese’s haircolor is a fabulous shade of buttery blond that mirrors the era’s starlets: Jean Harlow and Mae West. In real life, her hair is more modern and multidimensional with subtle medium and highlight gold tones. In order to achieve Reese’s movie look from your usual dimensional blond, we suggest the following:
