Vintage hairstyles never go out of fashion! The best way to incorporate this kind of style into your look is with vintage inspired bangs. With such a wide variety of styles to play with, the possibilities are endless! Here are vintage bangs – 3 ways, to help you create the perfect eye-catching look.
Pin curls are tight curls that can be achieved by dividing small, damp sections of hair. Curl each section with your fingers, making sure the curl is tight. Secure the curl with a bobby pin against the scalp. Let your hair dry before removing the bobby pins.
Remember – the smaller the section of hair, and the longer the bobby pins are left in it, the tighter the curl will be! Keep the rest of your hair soft, with loose curls or waves.
Play with the number and size of pin curls to create different styles. To take your hairstyle to the next level, add a headscarf or hair accessory. Or, if you want to really get creative with your vintage bangs, try incorporating victory rolls or the reverse side roll.
Create a simple vintage hairstyle by styling your bangs into a glamorous forward roll. Create pin curls along the front section of your hair, making sure the curls are rolled forward. Comb through the curls, to create a fluffy appearance.
You will then need to brush an uncurled section of hair from the top of your head over the fluffed section. Turn the hair under and pin into a roll using a bobby pin. From there, you can create that famed “U” shape by gently tugging on the sides of the roll.
One of the most popular styles of vintage bangs is the Bettie Bang. Made famous by iconic pin-up girl Bettie Page, this style is all about the cut. To create your own Bettie Bangs, make sure your bangs are cut so that they hit the middle of your forehead. They should be cut in a “U” shape, rather than straight across.
Once you have your bangs cut correctly, simply use a curling iron to curl the ends of your bangs under. Keep in mind that Bettie Page always styled these famous short “U” shaped bangs with long, wavy hair.
Bangs are essential to any vintage hairstyle. These vintage bangs – 3 ways, are a great place to start. It is time to unleash your inner pin-up girl!
