Retro Hairstyle Inspiration
By Kate on 11 September 2012
Popular and timeless for a reason, these retro hairstyles will inspire you to try something new.
Old is the new new when it comes to hairstyles, and these classic retro-esq 'dos are the perfect inspiration for a fancy look.
These waves are a beautiful take on a classic finger wave inspired hairdo and will leave you with a beautifully soft finish. Don't forget the hairspray to combat fly-aways and to keep your style in place. A vampy deep red lipstick color is optional, but will kick the retro feel of this lovely look up a notch.
Sometimes the simplest of styles is the best. A deep side hair part and some large hair rollers or a large curling iron will get you this old Hollywood look. Team it with a strapless dress and no necklace to allow your hair to garner all the attention.
It doesn't get more retro than this! The beehive is a staple hairstyle for those who love classic looks and isn't nearly as hard to achieve as you might think. The key to keeping the retro glam of this style is to ensure you sweep your front sections or bangs sideways across your forehead, and that your 'hive isn't full of hair frizz.
While the style of this mid-length wavy 'do is very retro-esq, it's the fabulous platinum blonde hair color that gives it the trademark retro feel. If your hair is already this shade of blonde, curl your locks so that your hair length sits just below your ears and enjoy a throwback look- retro sunnies optional.
