How to DIY Our Favorite Vintage Hairstyles

Pin Curls

Pin curls are the quintessential classic pin-up hairstyle. This
’50s hairstyling technique is a great way to add long-lasting
curls to any hair type – even pin-straight hair! And since
there’s absolutely no heat involved, pin curls won’t damage
your hair.

  1. This type of vintage hairstyle works best with clean hair,
    so start by washing hair with Viviscal Gorgeous Growth Densifying Shampoo
    and Conditioner. Towel dry hair.
    Comb a pea-size amount of Viviscal Gorgeous Growth Densifying
    Elixir through hair.
  2. Using a rat tail comb, separate a 1-square-inch section of
    hair. Make a loop around your finger with the ends of the hair.
    Then roll the hair towards your scalp, being extra careful to
    keep the ends tucked into the curl.
  3. Use two bobby pins to pin the curl at the scalp in an “X”
    shape. Repeat with the rest of your hair.
  4. Let the curls sit for several hours until hair is
    completely dry, or wrap your hair in a headscarf and sleep in
    the pins overnight.
  5. When your hair is dry, take out all of the pins and brush
    through hair using a boar-bristle brush. Use your fingers to
    help shape the curls into the shape of your choice.
  6. After the curls are brushed out, spritz with hairspray.

French Girl Half Updo

This ’60s hairstyle is inspired by those worn by actresses in
French films. We love this retro hairstyle because it looks
just as cute in 2018 as it did in in the ’60s!

This hairstyle works best the day after you wash your hair, so
that the hair has a little extra texture. If you’re starting
with clean hair, spritz your roots with dry shampoo to add
extra grip.

  1. Start by teasing the crown section of your hair. Then use a
    brush to smooth the top layer of the teased section.
  2. Pull the top section of your hair into a half ponytail and
    secure with a hair tie.
  3. To finish the look, pull out some face-framing pieces then
    use hairspray for hold.

Pairing this retro hairstyle with winged cateye eyeliner is
totally optional, but definitely recommended!

Old Hollywood Waves

This ’40s and ’50s hairstyle features glamorous, sweeping waves
that are perfect for formal events and date nights.

  1. Start by combing Viviscal Densifying Elixir through
    damp hair for extra shine, body and light hold.
  2. Blow dry hair in sections, pointing the hair dryer nozzle
    down towards your ends to minimize frizz.
  3. Once hair is dry, create a deep side part with a rat tail
  4. Using a curling iron, curl hair in 1-inch sections towards
    the face. Try to keep the sections consistent sizes for the
    best results. As you release each curl from the curling iron,
    catch it in your hand and pin it to your head. Allow the pinned
    section to cool in the curl shape before releasing to ensure
    longer-lasting curls.
  5. After hair is cool, remove the hair pins and brush through
    the curls using a boar bristle brush. The curls will merge
    together, forming that gorgeous wave pattern. Use a small
    amount of Viviscal Elixir to smooth any
    frizz. Then finish with hairspray.

Heat-Free Tip: If you don’t want to use
heat on your hair, you can
also achieve this look by using pin curls. Just make the pin
curls larger than usual for softer waves, and pin all the curls
going in the same direction.

Victory Rolls

This ’40s hairstyle is another classic pin-up hairstyle. To
style at home, follow the directions above for creating Old
Hollywood Waves. Then follow these steps…

  1. Use a rat tail comb to create a triangular section of hair
    from the top of your ear up to your part.
  2. Use a teasing comb to tease the back of the section. Then
    set it with hairspray.
  3. Smooth the top layer with a brush, then create a large curl
    (just like a pin curl).
  4. Use pins that match your hair color to hold the curl in
  5. Repeat on the other side. Finish the look with hairspray
    and you’re finished!

Whichever vintage hairstyle you choose, healthy, shiny hair
makes every hairstyle look better. That’s why we recommend
taking Viviscal Hair Growth
Supplements twice a day to promote strong, healthy hair.*
