Waves and curls are two major ingredients for perfect vintage hairstyles, as proven by the pin-up look and full-bodied curls above. The question is, which hairstyle would you be more likely to wear?
Made famous by the likes of Marilyn Monroe, pin-up waves are as sexy today as they were back in the 1950s. With plenty of volume and a smooth, flyaway-free finish, this hairstyle is ideal for a night out, or for injecting a little glamor into your daytime beauty look.
To get the best results, rough dry your hair most of the way, then apply Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Thermal Smoother Cream before curling your hair with a round brush.
If you want more of an understated look, but still want plenty of volume, full-bodied curls might be a better option for you. Part your hair to one side or pin the curls back for a timeless 1930s vibe.
For natural curls that bounce back and won't fall flat during the day, apply Advanced Hairstyle CURVE IT Elastic Curl Mousse to damp hair before blow-drying. If you're starting with straight hair, clip each piece of curled hair up to cool when it comes off the iron, then mist your finished 'do generously with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray.
