Trendy Vintage Hairstyles

Many women looking for a new hairstyle go back in time to pick a vintage style that was worn by some of the most glamorous and fashionable women in past eras. Many of the most popular vintage hairstyles seen today are always in fashion, helping a woman to look beautiful, glamorous, and very feminine. These styles are easy to implement and look beautiful on any woman who wears them for any occasion, seen on the streets, at red carpet events, and even weddings. With many vintage hairstyles, it's all about the curls. Big, bold, and beautiful curls look perfect on short or long hair and were a fashionable choice for beautiful women in the 1940s and 1950s. 

These styles can be perfected using hot rollers and can be done in many different ways. Curling short to medium length hair allover and having lots of body is a reminder of the beautiful Marilyn Monroe. This style has been seen in recent years on some of Hollywood's hottest stars, including actress Katherine Heigl and singer Katy Perry. Curling the bangs with a large barrel curling iron is the perfect finishing touch for this type of style. Gorgeous waves are a more subtle but equally beautiful style. Dita Von Teese, one of the most glamorous and sexy women of this time, is known for wearing this style often. This look is perfect for women with medium length hair or longer. Those who have short hair and want to try out one of the many wavy styles can add extensions to be able to rock this look. Hot rollers can also be used for waves, although some women opt to use clips to create gorgeous finger waves that were popular in the 1930s. A vintage bob dates back to the roaring 1920s when it was seen on the most stylish women of the times. Chin length hair that is rolled into perfect curls has a vintage look that still looks beautiful today for any occasion. Rocker and fashion icon Gwen Stefani has been seen sporting this look. Adding a chic headband around the head accessorizes and makes this style look even more fashionable. Looser waves can be used for a more laid back look, while tight curls make this style look even more feminine. For those who like to keep their locks straight, adding a bouffant to their style adds a touch of retro chic to their look. This style has been seen all over Hollywood worn in a variety of different ways. Singers Adele and Rihanna have both worn full bouffants with all of their hair pulled up and teased to make it sky high. Other celebrities, such as Kim Kardashian, have shown off more subtle versions a la Brigette Bardot, with hair half pulled up and teased to have plenty of volume in the front. This style is excellent for long hair, the longer the better. Those who don't have long hair can fake this sexy style using hair extensions. There is nothing more adorable than seeing a little girl with a trendy vintage hairstyle. Girls just love them since they are fashionable by nature. So why not giving your tiny lady a Marilyn Monroe look?! Most girls already have curly hair so there is no need for hot rollers. You can just use purple bow holder, flower hair clip or hand knitted clip to get the right look. Make a simple bow and use some of these hair accessorizes. With the right vintage dress she will look like a cute princess of Hollywood. When looking for a new style for any occasion, vintage hairstyles are a fabulous and flirty style that has an updated look. These styles are perfect for any event and are easy to style and wear, making them ideal for even the most formal occasions.

A Mini-Hair Thursday Makeover

If you don’t mind, let’s digress and briefly chat about the photo on the right. You see, as Wita approaches her 2nd birthday, it seems she has taken to dressing herself. Here’s a delightful number she threw together on the morning of her hair appointment. Let’s see – we have her colorful striped pajamas as the base layer, followed by a navy jacket she outgrew a year ago, her brother’s swim trunks and brown suede boots, and the piece de resistance, a pair of swim goggles. Let’s get this girl her own fashion blog! Too bad isn’t available. Back to the hair. Although we live smack dab in the land of little girls with long, sun-kissed locks, I’ve never envisioned my little girl with long hair. Call me old-fashioned, but nothing delights (yes, I said “delights,” and I mean it) me more than a shorter style that shows off all those perfectly lovable baby girl features that will be gone before a blink of an eye. Specifically, the chin-length bob with bangs combo. It’s just so fresh and adorable and stylish, and the cut truly sets itself apart from the sea of baby beach bunnies around here.
