Trendy hairstyle praise: María Félix knew about the advantages of haircuts decades ago.
Ending a little below the shoulders and with slightly defined strands: María Félix shaped the success of the praise like no other.
María Félix is a name known not only in Mexico and Latin America but all over the world. She was one of the greatest divas the world has ever seen who made the world fall in love with her talent, bold style, and beauty. One of the most memorable phrases for her: "It's not enough to be pretty, you have to know how to be pretty too." The truth is that La Doña didn't just wear something for its own sake. It always had to look good on her, and that included her haircut: She had a particular fondness for the praise.
María Félix almost always wore her hair ending a little below the shoulders, with slightly defined strands, free of fringes and subtly wavy to mimic the glamor of the time. What's noteworthy is that the way María Félix wore her hair is still a style lesson today. Her haircut has never gone out of style thanks to the versatility it offers when it comes to styling. In addition: it gives fine hair a little volume, it keeps curly hair under control.
You could say that it is easy to wear a lob haircut these days, but the truth is that wearing it with the elegance that Félix wore is another story. The center or side parting is a must, as long as it's well defined, in a way that doesn't look unkempt or freshly styled: this can be achieved by drawing the line with a fine brush if you want to get an accurate definition.
Another rule to keep in mind if you want to wear the trendy Lob hairstyle like María Félix: Keep your hair out of your face! Something that seems very easy to follow, but if you have fine hair this is certainly something that happens a lot. For the right glam touch, you can use hair clips in the same color as your hair and make sure that they are hidden behind the ears. A detail that can often be seen in the looks of María Félix in her films.
The third secret to praise lies in the styling: it is best to use a styling cream or a styling oil and style the hair as you like with hair clips while removing the frizz from the hair.
Today, the praise has long been recognized by stylists as an "easy-care" cut that is particularly beneficial for all hair types as it is just the right length to achieve different styles. María Félix had certain preferences. She often wore her hair loose or with chignons gathered at the nape of the neck. Rarely has she been seen with a ponytail.
According to María Félix's make-up artist, Isabel Barrera Jacome, who accompanied her to her productions and important events for decades, one of María Félix's secrets to keeping her hair looking good was to bathe in cold water. This detail may seem insignificant, but the truth is that it closes pores and prevents hair from weakening (as opposed to constantly using overly hot water in the shower). If we add that she only washed her hair twice a week, we already have two great secrets to beautiful hair.
