Five vintage hairstyles that are making a comeback

As we all head out to socialise again, many of us will want to show off a new image after a long period indoors.

For those who really want to wow their friends or anyone they see, a vintage hairstyle from a decade gone-by might just be the best way to achieve it.

Here, Violet Says shares five vintage hairstyles that are making a comeback:

20s Faux Bob – All the glamour of short hair with none of the commitment of the cut! Rolling loose sections of hair under and pinning to the bottom hairline. Add flowers for more casual day wear or ornate accessories for a more polished night look.

40s Hollywood Wave – With wedding season upon us, the gorgeous Hollywood waves are a sure win for brides and guests alike. Dress the fringe up tall to keep the vintage silhouette or sleek the front for a more modern take on this fantastic classic. Their timeless elegance is sure to turn heads!

50s High Pony – This quick, versatile do is appropriate for every occasion! Keep it sleek and simple, or dress it up with bows, flowers and accessories. You can even add a quiff or faux bangs for that Sandy D feel or use a bandana for a true Rockabilly feel.

60s Beehive – As Dolly Parton said, “the higher the hair, the closer to god!” and you won’t get much higher than a classic 60s Beehive. This look can be adapted for updos or be worn down with loose curls or just the ends flicked up.

70s Plaits and Waves – To be fair, this one makes its way back to us most summers in the form of festival hair. Highlighted, beachy waves paired with plaits and plenty of dry shampoos is a sure winner for camping, festivals and sunny day chic!
