A vintage hairstyle is always a great option for when you want to look a little more glam than usual, and we just love this adorable 'do. Due to our new-found infatuation, we wholeheartedly suggest you recreate it on your own hair this weekend!

Whether you plan to spend the next 48 hours partying, hanging out with your friends or even just doing laundry, this style is guaranteed to look gorgeous.

Get the look

Step one
Spray dry hair evenly throughout with a heat protectant such as L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray.

Step two
Section off a large piece of hair at the front then curl the rest, using a small-medium sized iron. Once curled, shake your fingers through your hair and mist with hairspray.

If your hair doesn't tend to hold a curl very well, try these styling tricks to show your mane who's boss!

Step three
Let down the hair at the front and curl it backward, going away from your forehead. Once curled, roll and twist the hair up to your hairline then pin it in place. Spray your hair all over with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray for long-lasting hold.

Step four
Tie your chosen headscarf, allowing your hair to cascade down your back, and knotting it slightly to one side. That's it!

What do you think? Will you try this vintage hairstyle?
