Retro Inspired Celebrity Hairstyles

If you love a retro hairdo then take a look at these great celebrity hairstyles!
Retro hairstyles are classics for a reason. They always look great and have stood the test of time as a 'do that provides a beautiful look no matter where or when it's worn, so get inspired by these modern celebrities and their classic retro looks.
Mary Elizabeth Winstead - Pin Up Girl
If you've got bangs and long locks then it doesn't take much to create a pin up girl look à la Mary Elizabeth Winstead. A middle hair part, some piecey full bangs (thanks to a touch of hair gel) and some lovely curls through the ends of your long length (with help from your curling iron) will get you this great look.
If an updo is your go-to look then we say go all out with a classic beehive. While some might say the bigger the better, we say keep it subtle and modern with just a hint of height. Follow Eve's lead and ensure there are strands around your face for softness and some beautiful side-swept bangs for the ultimate retro finish.
Chloe Moretz - Side Styled Waves
If styling your hair up is not an option, or you love nothing more than letting your long lengths loose, then do your strands justice with some side styled waves. This stylish look from Chloe Moretz is perfect for thick hair and for showing off glossy locks.
Amber Heard - Backcombed Ballerina Bun
Another classic retro hairstyle that never goes out of fashion is the backcombed ballerina bun. Amber Heard shows how it's done with her sophisticated updo. Clean hair, a little backcombing and some hair pins will help you to whip your hair into this gorgeous look. And like all retro hairstyles, plenty of black mascara and a touch of red lipstick (which Amber seems to have left out!) will perfectly complete any look.
