Easy Vintage Wave Hairstyle Instructions
Today’s video is about how to do a simple version of vintage style waves.
Begin by brushing your hair and sectioning it into several parts.
Curl your hair with any method you like. I prefer a conical wand for this because it gives a bouncy girl that lasts all day.
Once set brush out the curls so they are very loose. You want nice been waves.
Using a comb and holding it flat against your head, brush backwards.
You should be able to feel the direction the curl wants to go.
Add a pin.
Comb again forming a gentle wave which finishes at your ear.
Pin each curve.
Continue waving like this until you reach the back.
Pin there too.
Brush out the other side of the curls and repeat the comb waving process.
The hair will naturally form it’s own curves.
On this side I pushed forwards first then back then forward.
It may take a couple of goes to get it in a shape you like but trust me it’s worth it.
Once you’ve done both sides, brush down the back of your head and then roll the rest of the loose hair up.
Pin it in place around the neck.
For a more casual look you can leave it down but I prefer a low bun.
Now hairspray the hell out of it!
While we’re waiting for it to dry, let’s do the fringe.
Part to one side then curl completely under so no edges are seen.
That’s been around long enough.
Once the spray is set, carefully remove the pins.
I like to add some flowers to the top of the bun to give it a more finished look and to hide any more pins which might be showing through.
A look like this definitely deserves some red lips.
It looks so much more complicated than it actually is and the effect is really beautiful.
This is definitely a head turning look.
I hope this was a useful video. Please check out the blog post linked in the description for more information and a photo tutorial.
