17 Ways to Make Vintage Hairstyles

17-vintage-header

There’s a reason why vintage hairstyles never go out of style. The glamorous heydays of Hollywood rushed forward sales of hair rollers and hairpins for good reason. Stars like Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, and Elizabeth Taylor made women – and men – everywhere swoon!

Hepburn’s up-do in Roman Holiday and her bouffant in Breakfast at Tiffany’s are recreated by many other celebrities as they walk the red carpet. These vintage hairstyles from the 1940s and on are adored by the stars and their fans to this day. As seen in the contemporary, romantic movie The Notebook, Rachel McAdams wears various vintage hairstyles for her character, sparking copycat selfies everywhere.

But, you don’t need to be a celebutante or starlet to rock these retro looks.

These invoking styles are the timeless way to step out in style. Whether you wear pinned up or victory curls, or long side-swept waves, an up-do or a bouffant, these vintage looks always class up your style. We love the soft face-framing elegance that you can wear to work, a girls’ night out, or even date night.

We especially love the vintage hairstyle how-tos that make your Halloween costume a snap.
