Ready to add some glamour to your hairstyle? Go vintage! Vintage styles always look great…which is why they’re still so popular. If you’re searching for a hairstyle that will give you bold, retro glamour, try one of these 3 vintage updos.
There is something unforgettable about 1920s Gatsby-esque hairstyles. They are sultry, classy, and perfectly vintage! To create your own flapper inspired look, try a faux bob with finger waves! This style is ideal for anyone with medium to long hair.
First thing is first – creating those waves! Start with clean, damp hair. Apply gel liberally from the root to midway down the length of your hair. Comb through and make a deep side part. Place a hair clip wherever you want your waves to start, and add another clip every inch or so. Let your hair dry with the pins in place. Once your hair is completely dry, remove the pins to reveal those perfect finger waves.
Now it is time for the updo part! Pull your hair into a low ponytail. (Be careful not to ruin those finger waves!) Roll the ponytail and tuck the hair underneath. Finish off this gorgeous vintage updo by pinning your hair in place.
For a vintage updo that is super quick and easy – but still gorgeous and glam, try the Gibson tuck. This vintage updo takes a page from the Victorian era.
Start by pulling your hair into a ponytail. It can be a high ponytail, low ponytail, or anything in between. Loosen the ponytail and create a small opening. Roll the length of your ponytail by twisting it around your fingers and put your ponytail through the opening. Tuck in your hair and pin it all into place.
The last vintage updo to inspire your retro side? Victory rolls! This hairstyle was made popular during WWII but can still be seen at weddings, formal events, and on the red carpet. There are many variations of this hairstyle, so play around with the curl shape and height to best flatter your face shape.
Start by forming two sections by separating your hair down the middle. From there, begin wrapping sections of hair around your fingers and roll towards the scalp. Pin each roll into place with bobby pins and finish with hairspray. You can make the victory rolls as loose or tight as you like – get creative! To turn this style into an updo, simply create victory rolls using all of your hair and pin everything securely into place.
Nothing beats a little vintage glamour…so get ready to unleash your retro side by trying one of these 3 vintage updos. You’re sure to sizzle!
