Looks like Kelly Osbourne has that "Whip Appeal."

The 25-year-old star kept it cool in the sweltering Los Angeles, California heat yesterday with a retro ponytail. And she rounded out the look with an Elvis-esque pompadour, black ribbon bow, and wing-tipped, smoky eyes.

Did Osbourne seek inspiration for her über-feminine 'do from the Fall 2010 runway of Louis Vuitton? Maybe.

The beauty world is definitely looking back to the '50s and '60s this season, according to Guido Palau, Redken Creative Consultant. "It seems like we're looking back to a classic aesthetic, a classic kind of sophistication, with a more 'done' to the ponytails and chignons. It's very ladylike."

Guido breaks it down step-by-step on how to recreate Osbourne's retro ponytail.

First apply Redken Aerate 08 Bodifying Cream Mousse to damp hair for body and fullness. Rough dry your strands with your hands first. This will give it the texture you need to make the style last, says Palau. Smooth the ends with a small round brush for bounce. Taking random large sections throughout the hair, curl from the midshaft to ends. The hairstylist recommends not worrying about getting too close to the root as you'll be pulling it back. After curling the ends, gather into a ponytail using a brush and secure with a holder. Pin the front section of the hair into a pompadour and leave out random pieces around the hairline to give it a softer look. Wrap the ponytail holder with a ribbon like Osbourne and set the style using Redken Forceful 23 Super Strength Finishing Spray to give curls hold and lockout humidity.
