Retro Bridal Hairstyles


As far as bride style is concerned, vintage is the new contemporary. With indie- and retro-themed weddings becoming more popular, so are retro hairstyles. There are countless brides hairstyles to choose from, but going the retro route may be the perfect look for you. The following looks are also fun bridesmaids hairstyles to keep in mind as well.

Classic Bob: During the post-World War I 1920s, women began to establish independence and their hair reflected that by losing its length. The bob (seen on the legendary Louise Brooks, above) became the most popular hairstyle among women, including flapper girls. If you have short, straight hair then rock the 1920’s bob at your wedding like there’s no tomorrow. Have fun with it and add vintage hair clips, headbands, or headpieces.

Wave: This hairstyle became popular in the 1940’s and is drastically different from the bob. This style works best with hair that lands below the shoulders. Get this look by pinning curls around your forehead or by curling your hair into soft, natural waves with hot rollers. Make sure to get rid of any whispies or fly-aways with hair-smoothing serum.

Bouffant: This 1960s hairstyle, which was made popular by Jackie Kennedy, is iconic and will definitely make an impression on your wedding day. Achieve this style by teasing a section of your hair on the crown of your head, which will create a round bouffant bun.
