As we get closer to the end of the year, we have to start thinking about all of those festive parties coming up! Not only will you need to update your wardrobe with a new cocktail dress or two, but you will also need to start thinking about what to do with your hair. Of course, we always want to look classy and elegant at our end-of-the-year bashes, compared to the less formal events that happen in summer like beach parties, garden parties, and so on. Now is the time to really pull out all of the glamour stops and go for something that’s a 10 on the style scale. And when in doubt, always look to vintage/old Hollywood hairstyles for something elegant.
Julianne Hough is wearing a great vintage hairstyle here that will suit ladies with shorter hair. She has combined old Hollywood waves with a gorgeous side swept fringe that creates a perfect frame for her face. Rather than go for the usual tight pin curls or finger wave look, Julianne has loosened up her waves to give it a cool, modern finish. This hairstyle will work best on women with oval, oblong, square, and diamond shaped faces.
Daisy Fuentes is wearing a longer vintage hairstyle that looks fabulous paired up with her chic LBD and dangly earrings. This look can be created by first blow-drying the hair straight, leaving ample volume at the roots, and then adding curls using rollers or a curling iron. Once the hair has set, gently brush through the curls for a soft and bouncy finish, then pull one side back and secure with a hairpin or other hair accessory. This looks best with a deep side part like Daisy’s but can also work with a centre part. Daisy’s ‘do will work best on oval, oblong, square, and diamond shaped faces.
Edy Ganem goes for all out old school glamour with her vintage hairstyle, as seen here. Her jet black locks look amazing styled up in tumbling curls with a deep side part. This look can be created by blow-drying the hair straight and then styling it up with hot rollers or a curling iron. After each section has been curled, twist it around and pin it into place to set. Once it has cooled, unroll all of your curls and then shape your ‘do into place using a brush or comb. Try to keep the curls in tact as much as possible though to maintain that old Hollywood vibe. This hairstyle will suit women with oval, oblong, square, and diamond shaped faces the best.
All of these hairstyles will benefit from a strong hold hairspray to keep them in place. Using a shine spray will add an extra special touch and give a glossy sheen to your curls.
As you can see, adding some sleek curls and a deep side part to your hair instantly creates a super elegant look with that vintage Hollywood vibe. You’ll want to pair these hairstyles up with your most decadent dress and flawless makeup. Don’t forget to accessorize with some eye-catching jewellery to finish this look off to perfection!
