We all know that trends come and go. In the world of hairstyles, this is definitely true. So, are vintage hairstyles coming back into fashion? Yes! There are a lot of retro styles that are coming back into fashion. This quick guide will introduce you to a few of these old hair styles making a comeback. Keep reading to learn more.
Although this style really came on the scene in the ’70s, it was also wildly popular during the 1990s. Today, it is popping up again on TikTok influencers and celebrities. Some gals are even brave enough to attempt doing this style as a DIY at-home cut. Hair can be pulled up into a high ponytail, and then layers can be cut in for a messy look. However, be warned, there is really no way to determine how the end result will look. If you want a shag cut done right, make an appointment with a salon near you.
Nothing says vintage quite like pin curls. Our grandmothers and maybe even great-grandmothers relied on this heatless hairstyle back in the day. You can achieve adorable pin curls by simply twirling damp and then pinning it up with a bobby pin. Allow your hair to dry naturally. When you take the pins out, you will have cute-as-a-button ringlets that you can then further style as you like.
Old School Hollywood Waves
The deep body waves of the 1940s are also making a comeback. Deep body waves work great on any length of hair and really add a flair of elegance to any look. This look can be achieved either by using styling tools or by creating really big, chunky pin curls. The old-school body waves of the past were often achieved using the pin curl method. It is good to ensure the hair is smooth and shiny before pinning it up.
’80s Girl Big Hair
Pull out your mom’s prom pictures for some inspiration if you want this retro style — or your dad’s for that matter. The ’80s were all about big hair, both for men and women. This is a super easy vintage look to achieve because all our parents did was tease or crimp, or both. A salon expert can advise you on the best way to get this fun look without teasing your hair into absolute knots. Also, keep in mind that volumizing products are a must for big hairdos like this.
Hard to believe, but yet, even the mullet is making a comeback. Business in the front and party in the back has not gone completely out of style as this haircut is continuously popping up in the younger generation. Miley Cyrus is to thank for bringing back her dad’s famous cut. Keep in mind this hairstyle is a bit of a commitment. Once you take the plunge, it’ll be a while before your hair is grown back out again.
When you first think of bangs you might have a traumatic flashback to elementary school picture days, but rest assured, today curtain bangs can be created in a stylish way that greatly compliments your face. This is another style, though, that is a bit of a commitment once you go there. You may want to check out apps that allow you to virtually see a haircut on your face before you commit.
The short bob is a great way to dramatically change your style. Modern bobs are easy to maintain and care for. Try this cut if you are tired of dealing with long, heavy hair.
