For this look all you need is a big-barrel curling iron and lots of hairspray. A vintage look is usually created by just curling the ends of the hair into big, loose curls. With a simple hairstyle like this, you have lots of room for some creative hair accessories! Try looking in thrift shops or antique stores for vintage clips or bobby pins. This would be perfect for accenting a simple and elegant look.

Vintage Hairstyles #2: The Updo

To create a simple vintage updo, find that perfect vintage headband or ribbon to use as your base. With the band around your forehead and on top of your hair, take small sections of the hair and wrap it around the band. Continue all the way around your head until all of your hair is up. Top of this look with a feather for an authentic vintage look!

Vintage Hairstyles #3: Victory Rolls

Victory rolls are a classic pin-up style. To get this look, tease the crown of your hair, and divide the tops of your hair into two large sections. For each section, create a large roll, either flat to your hair or facing out, and secure with hairspray and bobby pins. For a less-severe look, try creating two or three small rolls that lay flat to your head, and pull your hair back into a loose ponytail.

Vintage Hairstyles #4: Faux Bob

If you have always wanted to see how you would look with a bob, this is the perfect time to test it out without the commitment! A 20’s inspired faux bob is easy to achieve and requires no cutting. For this look, style your hair as usual to prep, but pay extra attention to volumizing the top of your hair. To create the bobbed look, take sections of your hair at the tip and tuck them loosely under the rest of your hair, and secure with bobby pins at the base of your head. To make the look more believable, pull some shorter strands out and create a few curls to frame your face.

Whether you’re going to a Great Gatsby themed party, or just love the 20’s look, these hairstyles are easy to achieve and can perfectly accent any style dress. Now throw on some killer vintage accessories, like a few Audry Hepburn pearls, and you are ready!
