These days, there are few rules in hair fashion, which is why it’s so great to see styles from as far back as the 1940’s making another appearance. If you loved the styles of your mom or your grandmother, it’s a memory that you can resurge with just a few cool twists, turns, pins, and flips!
Styles like the Updo, beehive, Fingerwave Updo, The Veronica Lake, Victory Rolls, the classic Upstyle ala Breakfast at Tiffany’s, the Quiff made famous by Ginger Rogers and more are back.
Do’s from the 1960’s and 1980’s are also returning like the Asymmetrical Bob, the hippie look with messy braids, Big curls, Mod and the Pixie cut to name a few.
Some of these styles come with fun feather headbands, bejeweled combs, or hair pins that can really make the style pop.
There are modern takes on so many styles from the past, which make them fun and fresh with a nod to the past and few rules. If you have a big event coming up and want to try a classic style, check with your stylist to see if he or she can give you the look you want.
If you want to play on your own you can check out various YouTube or Pinterest pages for ideas and step-by-step instructions. Note that some of these styles can be tricky, but don’t give up! Before you start, make sure you have all the materials you need at the ready, wash and dry your hair and give yourself plenty of time to play! If you really want to have some fun, invite a few friends over for a hair party and watch some old movies for fun and inspiration.
