11 Easy Vintage Hairstyles That Are a Cinch to Do — We Promise

Here's the thing about vintage, retro hair: It never goes out of style.

From victory rolls to that '60s hair flip, go retro with these simple vintage hairstyle tutorials

By Nadine Avola, SheKnows

Seriously though, do you think we'll be recreating the hairdos of the '80s and the '90s in an unironic way 50 years from now? Sure hope not. But the looks of the '20s, '30s, '40s, '50s and '60s are gorgeous — and still totally work today.

Here's the other thing about vintage hair: It's notoriously hard to pull off. How were these ladies perfectly coiffing their 'dos without all of today's modern technology? Nary a flatiron or ionic blow dryer, and still everyone seemed to be running around in hairstyles that are super complicated. But it seems like every time we try to recreate these styles, the venture ends in tears and a melting cat eye streaking down our cheeks.

But not with these tutorials, my friends. Beauty bloggers are guiding us through some simple steps that'll have you swishing down the street singing The Drifters' "There Goes My Baby" in no time.

Steph, a professional hair stylist and makeup artist, shows us step-by-step how to recreate these ultra-glam waves. This Old Hollywood look is a modern twist on the renowned finger waves of the 1920s and 1930s.


1930s Faux bob


Keir (that's key-air) brings back the retro faux bob — and with a super-sweet outfit, too (Check out her shoes!). She walks you through each step and before you know it, you'll be out searching for a flapper dress.


1940s Gibson roll


The Gibson roll, or tuck, originated from the Gibson girls of the 1890s, but became modernized in the 1940s. Joanna, of Cup of Jo, shows you how to get the look.


1950s Headscarf


When we think headscarves, we think Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn and Lucille Ball — icons of the 1950s. Keiko's hair tutorial is really easy and only takes minutes.


1950s Bumper bangs


This hairstyle was made famous by Bettie Page — the famous pin-up model and actress of the 1950s. Emily at The Freckled Fox, gives you some more background and guides you through the process.


1950s Victory rolls


Emily actually has tons of pin-up hairstyle tutorials, so I couldn't help but highlight her twice! In her tutorial for victory rolls she admits, "I like to do these tutorials when I have errands to run or a date to go on, because I love the funny looks I get from kids." Emily, we agree: Why not spice up our errand-running with a fun hairdo?
