Coco Chanel 1920's - 1930's Vintage Inspired Hairstyle




Coco Chanel: "A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous". Do you love dressing up 1920's or 1930's style? Do you also adore Coco Chanel products? Why not try doing a Coco Chanel vintage inspired hairstyle? It'll be perfect for a Halloween costume look or party. 



Coco Chanel Vintage Inspired Hairstyle

As I research my vintage styles I can't help but notice Chanel's actual hairstyles and how she kept her own appearance; very chic and unique.

In the video below I demonstrate how to do a vintage inspired by the beloved boss-lady. I of course wanted to keep it authentic with a 1920's / 1930's touch so I used tighter, smaller curls since my hair is longer.

This tutorial is perfect for doing a Coco Chanel look for Halloween or a vintage themed party.

Thanks for watching!






Who Was Coco Chanel?

Coco Chanel (1883 - 1971) born Gabrielle Bonheur Chanel was a French fashion designer, dress
maker and business woman. Most of us can recognize her life story of going from riches to rags and building a successful brand. An interesting fact about Chanel was that she aspired to have a stage career and would sing in cabaret shows while not working as a seamstress.

Chanel propelled a more casual, chic look for women's fashion from the "tight corset" look during the post-World War I era.

Most women love the styles and fashion that Chanel created from the little black dress, handbags and suit sets. I admit I yearn for a Chanel handbag and dress once in a while!
