Vintage hairstyles are on of the most sought after hairstyle. These timeless hairstyles are modernized but still they always hold on to their roots. From the headbands and finger curls of the roaring 1920’s to the big hair of the 1960’s, vintage hairstyles have a way of capturing our hearts and our hair. Check out some of our favourite hairstyles from the 20’s to the 70’s with a touch of modern style.
1920’s and 1930’s Finger Waves
This vintage style returned with style and rock. Back in the 20’s and 30’s, hair products and styling tools weren’t what we know today. So they created waves with hair gel, wet tresses, and their fingers.
1940’s Victory Roll
By the 1940’s hair still hasn’t calmed down. Hair was big, curled and so stylish. From the peek-a-boo bangs to the voluminous pompadour hairstyle, hair was big and envious. But the hairstyle that we absolutely adore from the 1940’s is the victory roll. During the post-war era, women didn’t have many clothing options so they focused on making their hair as spectacular as possible and we think they were successful!
1950’s Faux Natural
By the 1950’s we saw the development of hair-styling products such as hair spray, hair oils and creams. This changed how women wore their hair from day-to-day. While you might think that this means hairstyles became bold and ornate, they were actually less formal than hairstyles of the 1940’s. The au-natural look was preferred, though ironically, it was done with products, perming and setting.
The 1960’s Bouffant
The 1960’s were a great decade for hair. From the short pixie cuts to the shoulder-length bobs. But when you think of the 1960’s you think of the famous bouffant. A bouffant is a voluminous raised hair right on the crown of the head. The bouffant can be worn with updo’s, down-do and half-up dos.
1970’s Loose and long Locks
The 1970’s were a transformative decade. The subcultures that emerged such as the hippies and rockers meant that women were letting down their updo’s and bouffant for long, straight and natural locks.
