How to Make a Low Curled Vintage Pony

We adore vintage hairstyles! While most hairdos of yore look unbelievably elaborate, here's a cute and easy retro hairstyle that you can wear with confidence just about anywhere – ladies, we present to you the vintage curled ponytail!

This ponytail style works best with medium length, straight or wavy hair. We've got a step-by-step tutorial that'll help you perfect this hairstyle in a matter of minutes!

Please note: This 1950s ponytail works best on 2nd day hair.

You'll Need:

- A high-lift creation spray

- A fine toothed comb

- A hair elastic

- A couple of bobby pins

- A heat protectant hairspray

- A bold control hairspray

Get the Look

Step One

Spritz some high-lift creation hairspray on your roots to give your hair an instant boost.

Step Two

Create a side part with 1-2 inches of your face-framing hair and section off your strands.

Step Three

Using your fine toothed comb, back brush your hair gently at the crown to create a small bouffant. This teasing technique will help you build volume. Spritz some bold control hairspray to set the teased hair section and tuck in a couple of bobby pins to prevent the bouffant from budging.

Step Four

Using the back of your comb, smooth out your front hair over the bouffant to make it look even. Spritz some more hairspray to set this section.

Step Five

Gather all your loose hair at the nape of your neck and tie it in a low ponytail using a hair elastic.

Step Six

Mist your ponytail with a good quality heat protectant hairspray to shield the strands from the damages of heat styling.

Step Seven

Roll the end of your ponytail on a medium-barreled curling iron, wait for a couple of seconds and let the curled hair section slide off the iron.

Step Eight

Let your curled pony cool down and finish with a generous spritz of hairspray to set your vintage hairstyle for long wear!
