Retro styles are back in fashion for Spring/Summer 2013, with more ladies than ever turning back to styles of the past. Some of these excellent hair trends can give you an effortlessly chic style that will definitely help to put you on the map.
Here are some of our favourite retro hairstyles:
The Faux Bob
This style was recently featured on the catwalk by Jil Sander and is ideal for those after a stylish option that’s also incredibly easy to pull off. The hair is simply slicked back from the face and rolled at the back to give the illusion of a bob. The slicked hair ties into one of this season’s other big hair trends – wet-look hair. The faux bob is perfect for those with short hair, so why not give it a go?
The Bardot has made a number of comebacks since its original appearance on the actress/model Brigitte Bardot in the 60s. This style took the Beehive of the 50s and made it more accessible for ladies everywhere, as it was less intricate. Stars such as Amy Winehouse and Cheryl Cole revitalised this look at a later date.
Nowadays, you can achieve this style with hardly any effort whatsoever by using a Bardot clip in hair piece.
Victory rolls were an essential hairstyle in the 1940s and they’re back today with a modernised style. These victory rolls from Jean Paul Gaultier have been maximised to make them bigger and better and they work as an excellent up-do all by themselves.
This classic hairstyle from the 1930s is still just as elegant today. You can create finger waves very easily, or you could make the job much simpler by opting for our modern take on the finger wave.
The Pompadour Fringe
The pompadour fringe first emerged in the 1950s, with famous pinup girls such as Betty Grable and Sophia Loren sporting them. The style calls for the fringe to be swept up and over the forehead in an intricate design, but it’s easy to recreate at home.
