Vintage Hairstyles for Long Hair

Follow these stunning vintage hairstyles to shape your long hair for a perfect classy look:

The Gibson Girl Look

Spray on a texturizing product such as popular uplifting foams available in the market and blow dry your hair. Tease one inch section of your hair from its root to the end and then flat iron the sections. Use a soft bristle brush to brush the hair out. Sweep the hair locks to the tops of your hair and loosely pin them in place to puff your hair up. It was a popular style statement in the 1890s.

Scarf-Tied Updo

The head scarf updo inspired by the classic “Rosie the Riveter” poster is a colorful way to dress-up your hair. Spritz a volume booster to your dampened hair, create a side part and tie up the hair into a ponytail at the crown of your head. Then, curl up your hair to a messy bun. Try choosing scarves with floral prints over the customary polka dots and tie the scarf around your head to complete the look.

This look from the 60s is timeless. It renders a smart, appealing look and is suitable for medium-to-thick straight hair. Use a good conditioner to make your hair soft and shiny. Then, use a paddle brush to blow dry your hair and then give a touch of anti-frizz serum to lend a real glossy look. This sleek hairstyle is sculpted to show your beautifully long neck and cheekbones.

Rolled Back Updo

This style inspired from the 40s goes along with various clothes like lace dresses, silk blouses and long skirts. Spray on a texturizing spray to lift up your hair and a good grip. Part your hair in the middle and twist one of the sides back and pin it at the nape of your neck. Repeat the same on the opposite side. Connect the two ends and twist your hair up to a soft bun and conclude the procedure with a touch of hair spray.
