Love is in the air, and so is your hair (a lot of these looks call for some serious volume) with these stunning vintage hairstyles.
In the world of love and romance, every detail counts - from the atmosphere of the setting to the outfit that you carefully chose for the occasion. But what about the beautiful crowning glory that frames your face?
Your hairstyle can speak volumes on a romantic night out, conveying elegance, allure, and a touch of vintage charm. Stepping back in time, we uncover five exquisite vintage hairstyles that effortlessly evoke an air of romance.
From the glamorous waves of the 1920s to the enchanting curls of the 1950s, let your hair tell a timeless love story as we explore these captivating looks for your unforgettable evening.
So, without further ado, let's jump right into it:
First on our list of vintage hairstyles are these stunning 1920s/30s finger waves. To achieve this gorgeous look, here is what you'll need:
That look you always associated with prohibition and The Great Gatsby indeed has a name—it's called "finger curls."
You achieve the style with hair that's already washed and dried (even if the blowout is a few days old). Actress and YouTuber Brittany Sarah has a great tutorial for finger waves in a loose bob (perfect for a night out hairstyle or that flappers party you've got after Valentine's Day too).
While blogger Hayley Jones has an even easier one for loose finger waves. It involves using a smaller curling wand—and lots and lots of hairspray.
Next on our list of vintage hairstyles is this beautiful 1940s Gibson Roll. These are the things you will need to achieve this elegant look:
It looks super complicated at first glance, but with your secret weapon, a donut hair bun maker snipped so it's just a straight tube, it's actually not that hard to do at home.
It's also great for hair that's already dry and maybe even a few days out from your last wash. It's mainly a lot of twisting, pins and hairspray with no heat styling tools necessary!
Next on our list of gorgeous vintage hairstyles is this classy 1950s Pin-up Victory Rolls that will have all eyes on you the moment you show up to your date. Here's what you'll need:
Does your significant other have a secret thing for Bettie Page? Then start practicing, because this style (and its many variations) can take some work.
But look no further than The Freckled Fox for an extremely detailed instruction manual on it. Pair it with a bold lip and some winged eyeliner and you might have to start your own calendar line very soon.
For this next beauty on our list of vintage hairstyles, here's what you'll need:
Calling all Mad Men superfans: The classic 60s hair flip starts with a good blow out. It doesn't have to be stick straight but somewhat smooth and full is the goal.
You'll be teasing it a lot before you smooth it out again. Retro, vintage and pinup beauty expert Cherry Dollface has a killer guide for creating this look for short to medium-length hair.
Our vintage hairstyles continue with this 1970s Charlie's Angels Curls / "Farrah Fawcett Hair". What you'll need:
If you've got 20 minutes, The Cocco Channel has a pretty detailed, thorough how-to for this style with a wand. If you're using a wand, section off hair, start from the back, and point the barrel down as you wrap 1-inch sections of hair around it, pointing in the direction away from face.
If you need a quicker version, retro styles blogger Saranne Huxton has a YouTube vid less than three minutes long, but using a straightener to create the waves.
Mastering the art of vintage hairstyles is all about the research! Study vintage photos, movies, and fashion magazines from the era you're interested in.
This will give you a clear idea of the hairstyles that were popular during that time so you can choose the one that matches your vision the best.
A lot of vintage hairstyles require thermal hair styling, which can be damaging for the hair if you are not using high-quality tools. Invest in a flat iron and a curling wand made from the gemstone tourmaline - this will ensure effortless heat styling without the damage.
Vintage hairstyles often have voluminous and textured elements. Use volumizing products, tease your hair gently, and consider using hair extensions if needed.
One unexpected product is the volumizing dry shampoo - it not only helps to absorb excess oil, but is a great way to add volume!
Consider using hot rollers or pin curls to set your hair before styling. This helps create lasting curls or waves that are characteristic of many vintage looks.
Bobby pins, hairpins, and setting patterns were vital for holding intricate vintage styles in place. Practice different pinning techniques for secure and hidden placements.
Use hairspray to set each section of hair as you style it - we recommend the NuMe Freeze Please Finishing Hairspray.
Vintage hairstyles can be complex. Practice different styles in advance to build confidence and improve your technique.
Pay attention to the parting and sectioning of the hair, as they are often specific to the era. A middle part, side part, or victory rolls, for example, can define the vintage look.
Accessories play an important role when it comes to vintage hairstyles, so don't shy away from them and use your creativity!
You can consider adding headbands, barrettes, combs, and flowers - which were especially popular during the vintage era, and they will definitely add a chic and classy touch to your outfit. They can also enhance the authenticity of your hairstyle.
Some vintage hairstyles work better on hair that's a day or two old. Clean hair can sometimes be too slippery, so allow your natural oils to provide better hold.
Vintage hairstyles can take time to perfect. Allow yourself enough time for styling, and don't be discouraged by initial attempts. You can do this - we are rooting for you!
Incorporate modern techniques and products for added durability and comfort while still achieving the vintage aesthetic. For example, you can use a hair primer to set the foundation for your hairstyle.
Keep in mind that not all vintage styles work well for all hair types. Adapt styles to suit your hair's natural texture and length.
Coordinate your vintage hairstyle with your outfit and makeup for a complete and cohesive look.
Vintage hairstyles often have a romantic, lived-in feel. Don't worry if your curls aren't uniform or every strand is perfectly in place.
To tease your hair for vintage hairstyles, begin by sectioning your hair where you want to create volume. Hold a section vertically and use a fine-tooth comb to gently comb downward towards the roots.
Repeat this process, gradually building up volume. After teasing, gently smooth the top layer of hair over the teased section to create a polished appearance. To secure the volume, spray each teased section with hairspray for hold.
Finally, use bobby pins to pin the smoothed hair over the teased area, concealing the teased sections underneath. Remember to be gentle to avoid damaging your hair, and don't over-tease to prevent excessive tangling.
This technique will give your vintage hairstyle the desired lift and volume while maintaining a refined finish.
To prevent frizz in your vintage hairstyle, start by washing and conditioning your hair with anti-frizz products. Apply a smoothing serum or cream before styling. Use a wide-tooth comb or your fingers to detangle damp hair gently.
Avoid aggressive brushing that can cause frizz.
Somehow women (or their hairdressers) created these styles without the technology we have in styling tools today. #madprops Be sure to share the looks you create and tag our Instagram, @NuMeHair, or sign up for our newsletter at NuMehair.com for hair tips and exclusive offers. Happy Heart Day!
