As many people may or may not know, my favorite time period is the 1940’s and the 1950’s. I just love, love, love the classic, feminine fashion and hairstyles that the 40’s and 50’s contain. Of course other vintage time periods are classic, but being raised in an old-fashioned home that was primarily 50’s style contributed to this admiration!
I always found myself mimicking 1950’s hairstyles in high school unknowingly. This is how my love for vintage hair styling started to develop without me even knowing! It all came together and it all makes sense now. Unfortunately, my hair became short throughout junior high and high school due to damage. (My hair damages very easily). Since it was shorter the curls created a vintage-style look. I didn’t like that it was short; but yet I loved styling it girly-style with curls and hair pieces. It was a love-hate situation. Over the years, this has become one of my favorite go-to vintage hairstyles. I love to dress it up with different style side combs.
In the video below, I demonstrate how to do a basic 1950’s hairstyle that can be easily worn every day. I first did this demonstration in my early days of YouTube, and I decided to revamp (remake/update) the video to make it more current. Either way, I hope it helps! Thanks for watching!
