One of the easiest ways to put a vintage spin on your hairstyle is by adopting a half-up 'do. Whether you have a long or medium-length haircut, you can whip up a voluminous bouffant, set your into 1940s-inspired rolls or go retro with a headscarf.

Styling tips

Add volume

To create the perfect bouffant, section off the top layers of hair and spray them with Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray. Lift the hair and tease it from behind with a fine-tooth comb, then gently smooth it back over and pin to form the bouffant.

Curls that stay put

If your hair has trouble holding a curl, apply Advanced Hairstyle CURVE IT Elastic Curl Mousse to damp hair, then blow-dry. Once it's about 80% dry, use a round brush to curl the lengths. When each piece of hair comes off the brush, clip it up in a loop to cool. This will set the hair into curls that last.

Stay flyaway-free

To seal your hair against frizz-inducing moisture, and to keep flyaways tacked down, mist your finished look with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray. After all, the last thing you need is a bunch of unwanted fuzziness cramping your style!

How will you rock a vintage-inspired half-up hairstyle?
