Quick and Easy Vintage Hair: Day 1

Monday, August 22, 2011

 Today's quick 'do is so simple that it hardly needs a how-to. It's an easy style to achieve on many different lengths, textures and cuts. This is a good everyday style that looks cute with a vintage outfit without looking too costume-like. If you have short fringe, you can leave it down for this style.
You will need:
 a brush
 bobby pins
hair spray
optional flower, bow, ribbon, pretty clip

Brush hair out and section it off with a side part like so:

 Starting with the side with the most hair, take the section from just in front of your ear to the top of your head


give it a little twist

push it forward, towards your face so you get a little "bump"

pin it to your head so one bobby pin faces the front and the other faces the back like this:


Do the same thing to the other side

 embellish with ribbons, a bow, clips or just leave it as is.

If you have the time, you can curl your hair with some hot rollers or a curling iron but on lazy or busy days, I just leave mine down. Another option is to pull your hair into a snood, which is always cute and easy.
 Finish it with hair spray to keep the fly-aways at bay and you're ready to fly out the door!

Tomorrow's style involves a little more time and primping but it's an authentic 40's classic. Stay tuned! x

    Have you tried anything like it? I love it, as it goes up really quickly. I'd be curious to see how it looks on shorter hair.

  12. Jodi- Thank you so much for sharing that link! I do a style similar to that, but using rats to roll it up but it never occured to me to use a hair band to make curls. I'm going to try that tomorrow! I'll post pics of it next week to let you know how it worked :)
