Believe it or not, even the 80’s are having some influence on today’s retro hairstyles. Fashion icon Kate Moss was photographed at the red carpet premiere of her perfume line with big, stiff hair. Maybe there is no such thing as a “new” hairstyle, but it’s a fitting tribute to the women of earlier decades to bring back a retro look and remind everyone what old school glamour really is.
Retro hairstyles are hot right now, These looks are pure glamour, and they are fun choices for everyday glamour, special occasions, weddings, and proms. You could even work a more extreme retro hairstyle, like Swiss Miss braids into a party costume.
No discussion of 1940’s hairstyles would be complete without the Victory Rolls hairstyle:
Decide which style of victory roll you want to do - both suit all face shapes and can really transform a look! Once you have decided on the position of your rolls, part your hair … central is usually best for top reverse rolls and to the side is best for side reverse rolls!
Section your hair and tie back all of your hair that you will not be rolling. Remember that the length of your hair can change the size of the roll so bear this in mind when you section it.
Step Three – Side Roll
Hold the hair at full length away from the head. Start rolling the hair around 2 fingers towards the back of your head.
Step Three – Top Roll
Hold the hair at full length away from the head. Start rolling the hair around 2 fingers towards the ceiling.
Once you have completely rolled the hair, pin in place and gently remove your fingers. Be sure not to pull the hair from the centre of the roll.
Complete all the above actions for the other side if you wish. Style your hair to match the era with large rollers or tongs or go for a large bun or high pony tail.
