I love vintage hairstyles. From pin-up victory rolls to simple vintage waves and coiffure pin ups, vintage hairstyles are still a big hit today. While some ‘dos are given a modern twist, other hair tutorials show you how to do pin curls and more the old fashioned way.
Vintage hairstyles aren’t just for Halloween or vintage fashion lovers, with a slight modification, they can be updated for any occasions. Some of my favorite wedding hairstyles are inspired by vintage hairstyles. Luckily, there are plenty of talented people out there that know how to create a beautiful vintage hairstyle.
We bring together some of our favorite vintage hair tutorials to try so you can look like a 50’s pin-up in no time!
