Vintage Hair Tutorial

hair collage

This vintage hair tutorial is one from the archives but as it’s such a fab look I thought it deserved another outing. I orginally did this look for Vintage Life magazine and it featured in their March 2014 issue. It combines some great vintage staples victory rolls and vintage curls!

This look works well on mid-length to long hair and uses hot-sticks but you could use hot rollers or curling tongs instead. Vintage looks work best on day old hair, as it is less slippery and easier to work with so you might want to add a little dry shampoo into the hair to help create a little bit more texture. Also make sure to prepare your hair with some heat protector and ‘curl hold’ spray before you start. Heat the hot-sticks/rollers up according to their instructions, making sure to be careful when using heated equipmet! Now you are ready to follow the steps below ot beautiful vintage hair:

Once the hair is fixed in place and you are happy with the style you can accessorize it with vintage style hats or flowers or just leave the style as it is. This is still one of my favourite styles to do and if you’d like me to re-create it for you, you can book an appointment with me via or to learn how to do your own hair see my 1940s Boutique workshop dates here.
