Vintage & retro hairstyles are coming back with a bang! When I see pictures of women in the ‘60s, ‘70s, and ‘80s I am always so jealous of their hair. They wore it in such cool ways! Luckily, lots of those styles are making a comeback! Here are a few of my favorite retro hair styles and how to style them.

  1. Tied-up updoo: If you have ever seen pictures of “Rosie the Riveter” then you know where this style came from! I love it because it is a quick, easy, adorable way to pull your hair up. It is also great for second-day hair that is looking a bit greasy. The scarf hides it! Here is how to do it: Work some texturizing spray through your hair, then curl it with a large barreled iron. Spritz with hair spray, then pin random curls into a messy bun. Tie a pretty head scarf retro 4around your head to finish it off!
  2. Retro waves: When I see this hair style I think of knee-high white leather boots and some giant bug-eyed sunglasses! Or I think of Daphne from Scooby Doo. Either one works ;). Here is how to do this look: Curl your hair with hot rollers, then use dry shampoo at your crown for some volume. Tease it a bit at the crown, and then finish with a spritz of hair spray, not too much that it looks sticky or rough!
  3. Victory rolls: This hair style makes me want to put on a poodle skirt and go to the drive-in! So retro and so classic. It gives a great ‘40s vibe and would look absolutely adorable with a full skirt, lace dress, or silky blouse. Here is how to create this look: Lightly spray texturizing spray to give your hair some grip, and then blow dry it. Part your hair down the middle, then twist one side back and pin it into place at the nape of your neck. Then repeat with the opposite side. Connect the ends, twist them back into a soft bun, and finish with a light mist of hair spray.

These styles are great for a day when you are feeling like you want to mix things up. Plus, they are all easy to do! Which is YOUR favorite retro look?

Christmas Hair: Pullthrough Braid

Christmas is just around the corner, and with Christmas comes Christmas parties! With Christmas parties comes Christmas outfits, and with Christmas outfits comes Christmas hair! So, without further ado, here is a fun, pretty hair style for your Christmas party needs: the pull-through braid. PS. This style works best on thick, long hair.

  1. Pull your hair into a high ponytail and secure it with an elastic. Split your hair into 3 groups once it is in the ponytail. Wrap one of the sections (a small section) around the ponytail to hide it.braid
  2. Split the section of hair underneath your ponytail in half and wrap it around to the front. Secure it with an elastic. It should look like you have a little ponytail in front of your big one. See the picture for clarification.
  3. Keeping your spacing even, continue splitting the underside hair in half and wrapping it around to the front, then securing it. Keep doing this until you have reached the length that you want your braid to be. Secure all the loose ends with an elastic.
  4. Now to my favorite part! Pull apart the sections of the “braid” to make it fuller and bigger.

I love this look because it is unique and looks so interesting from the back. If you are someone who prefers wearing their hair up or if you just want to switch things up, this hair style is great for you!

XOXO, Chels

As you know, I am somewhat of a “no heat hair style” kind of girl. I found a totally new way to curl my hair without heat and I am totally pumped about it! YouTuber Kayley Melissa did a tutorial on it. It is called “heatless halo curls” and all you need is an old t-shirt or bandana to make these curls happen!496fb45a003fbff38c0aaee262bf84cd

  1. Make sure your hair is damp. Grab a t-shirt or bandana (I prefer to use a bandana) and twist it, tying the ends together with a pony tail holder to make it into a halo.
  2. Brush the front part of your hair forward so it is hanging in your face. Place the halo on top of your head and start wrapping your hair around the bandana or t-shirt in small sections.
  3. Once you reach the end of the section you are wrapping you should secure the end with a bobby pin. Once you have wrapped all of your hair in sections around the halo, sleep on it! Since it is on top of your head it won’t interfere with your sleep.
  4. In the morning take out all of the bobby pins and run your fingers through your hair. You will have loose wavy curls that are to die for!

I love no heat curls because it takes less than 10 minutes to prep your hair and it curls while you sleep! Easy peasy!

XOXO, Chels

Have you ever pinned your hair up  in the cutest hair style ever, just to have the bobby pins fall out 10 minutes later? I can tell you that bobby pins that slip and slide out of your hair are just plain annoying! Today I am going to give you a way to make sure that your bobby pins stay where they are supposed to. Introducing, sticky bobby pins!

 

1. Gather your supplies. You will need hair spray, a paper towel, and bobby pins!

2. Place your bobby pins on the paper towel, and spread them out. Next, spray the pins evenly with hairspray.

3. Grab the corners of your paper towel and shake it to distribute the hairspray. Let the pins dry before you use them.

4. Pin away! These handy dandy sticky bobby pins will stay put even in straight, slick hair!

 

You can use these pins to pin up  your favorite  updoo or to just keep your hair pinned out of your face! Enjoy!

XOXO, Chels

Beach waves! I looove this trend! It looks so effortless and can make you look like you just came from a day at the beach. Some ways to achieve this look are to apply “Not Your Mother’s” Beach Babe spray to your hair (grab it here:http://tiny.cc/NotYourMothers_BeachSpray). It works amazing and smells like coconuts! Bonus! Another way is to loosely curl a few strands of your hair, let them cool, and then brush them out. Easy!

Low Buns! Just by pulling your hair into a bun at the nape of your neck can instantly give you a sweet, put-together look. You can do this with a regular bun, or you could even braid your hair and then twist THAT into a low bun!
