7 Days of Vintage Bangs

7 days of vintage bangs classic hollywood retro hair tutorials


I haven't had my bangs for long and although they're super cute, I'm feeling like I'm ready to grow them out already. I feel really limited with what I can do with them so I decided to break out of my hair rut and as I learn new things to do with my hair, I'll share my vintage celebrity inspirations and tutorials with you ladies.It seems like the typical vintage girl go-to is bangs with victory rolls. Although they always look fantastic, I want to do something different and classically vintage.

 If you don't have bangs, see my tutorials:

how to make a hair rat
make a hair rat for under $5
faux bangs and victory rolls (so you can see how to style faux bangs with a rat)

I also really loved this fab tutorial for DIY clip-in bangs from Ally's guest post on Scathingly Brilliant. This way, you can cut them however you like for different styles! I may have to try this with my already existing bangs for a longer or thicker look.

Grab the button and share and we'll begin on June 24th!

  1. Right now, I have blunt bangs that are about eyebrow length when unstyled. It's a great length because I can do long Bettie style bangs or curl them in with the rest of my hair.

  2. I have had my short bangs for about a year, and am not tired of them yet. Prior to getting them, I spend hour scouring old yearbook photos, and saving the hairstyles I liked. (Like the girl on the bottom of this page http://tinyurl.com/mf8bpwf)I still look at these photos to try to get ideas on how to style the rest of my hair differently.

  3. How wonderfully exciting! I love the bangs on my wig (not the least because they cover a fair bit of my forehead, which I've certainly never been crazy about), but I do miss my real hair sometimes and the fact that I could make a rolled/Bettie bang with it. I was just thinking about this yesterday actually, so your series about fun ways to style (relatively) short bangs couldn't come at a more fitting moment for me (thank you!).

  4. Good idea- I have had the same hairstyle for some years, so this might inspire me to change!
    Have linked you on my blog: www.paintingredroses.blogspot.com

    Also handy as it fits in with my lean towards vintage tips and ideas that I have just started.

  5. Looking forward to this! I have had bangs for almost forever and I'm always looking for ways to style them and have more options.

  6. Sounds like fun. I adore those u-shaped bangs of yours. I've been wanting some myself. Next time I change my hair, I'm going for the Bernie Dexter style. It looks pretty low maintenance for someone like me who is lazy with her hair. LOL!

  7. What a fun idea! I've always thought to do a post on ways to successfully grow out short blunt bangs because it took me yeaaars to be able to do it without chopping again (and then once *again* last summer after another chop, lol). I too always felt pretty limited with blunt bangs, but I now have them about nose-length and love the things I can do with them. Looking forward to this series!

    1. Oh, you really should do that post! I'm kind of dreading growing out my bangs since they start so far back and they're u-shaped. I had nose-length bangs for ages and it seems like they are the most versatile length. I do think I'll try blunt bangs as I'm growing this out :)

  8. Oh, I'm looking forward to this! I got 'Bettie bangs' recently and I've been feeling kind of limited in what I can do with my hair.

  11. i've had bangs for a little over a whole year and i could never imagine letting them grow out. they are a modern cut, a little longer on the sides to blend in and long-ish (along the under of my eyebrow) so if i need them to dress up a ponytail or something modern it really works. when i set my hair i always set my bangs, and i can brush them in front so then they are really short looking (very 50s) or back on my head for a more 30s/40s look. pin curl setting in a top wave is also very 40s and stylish. i have also discoverd that i really need them to enhance the good and take away from the bad in my fave shape. i always enjoy the versitility they give. cant wait for your posts though, everything on your blog is awsome, gal!
