Peggy’s Modern ’60s ‘Do

Remember Peggy’s hair in the opening season of Mad Men? It wasn’t exactly refined, but like her character, Peggy’s hair has evolved with time. To get that “Peggy flip” and volume, you’ll want some volumizing spray, a round brush, a curling iron and hairspray. Check out the detailed tutorial here.

Megan Draper’s Sexpot Hair

Don’s current wife oozes style and sophistication. While she’s known for her classic ’60s bob on the show, Megan also plays with hair extensions for a bit of drama. If you’ve got short hair, take your cue from Mrs. Draper #2 by using a 3/4 hair piece (or clip-in pony) and then follow this hair tutorial. If you’ve already got the length, you’re good to go.

Betty Francis’ Elegant Half-Up Hairstyle

Pay homage to her timeless look with this hair tutorial, which requires some hot rollers, thickening lotion, a natural bristle brush, bobby pins and setting spray.

Sally Draper’s Girlish Coiffure

We’ve watched Sally Draper struggle with her parents’ relationships, throw temper tantrums and, on the opposite side of the spectrum, act like more of an adult than her age should allow. Despite her desire to be all grown up, though, she’s still very much a child. To achieve her innocent look, you’ll need a curling iron or curlers, a wide tooth comb, some taming spray and, of corse, a bow. Check out the full tutorial here.
