star became famous for ... and with the release of the film My Week With

they are completely cooled. Once you have unpinned you hair, use a large

through your hair … you can use this to emphasise the shape of the curls
around your face.
Marilyn Monroe hair style looks elegant and classy and really is super
easy to do and really is the perfect look for the party season. To jazz
