30 Iconic Retro and Vintage Hairstyles

There have always been icons of style whose signature images are presently considered timeless: Marilyn Monroe, Veronica Lake, Elizabeth Taylor, Audrey Hepburn, Brigitte Bardot and many others. Today their hairstyles are copied with slight modern updates for the biggest events. Vintage hairdos are paired with the most elegant evening gowns and expressive make ups to come up with the classiest and most feminine looks. Since fashion is cyclic, everything comes around. So why not to look into the past for inspiration? They say everything the best in this world was invented long ago. Well, anyway, past can always give us some brilliant concepts to work on.

Go blonde and have some fun with big, chunky buns placed all over. Roll hair into a side bundle in the front for vintage bangs, or dress up your vintage updo with bandanas or scarves for a day out. This style might take a few practice tries – especially if your hair is exceptionally long and thick.

#2: Curly and Romantic

Long, lovely curls are always in style. To get a throw back look, part hair with a sweep, securing a half with bobby pins. Dark or light, spiraled or rolled, curly hair is very lovely for any occasion and truly never goes out of style.
