Vintage Inspired Faux Bob

Q&A with style creator, Asia Zamora
Vintage Hair Stylist @ Atomic Style Lounge in Las Vegas, NV

How would you describe this look?

This is a page boy. I love the waves that frame the face and the smooth details. This look is popularized in today’s vintage culture by the lovely Dita Von Teese.

Any advice for someone considering it?

I used a 1-inch curling iron, long Duck Bill clips, a Denman brush and Suavecita Pomade.

The style is very suitable for any face shape. The best haircut to have for this type of look is a Middy haircut. There are different versions of the Middy at different lengths. It just depends on what length you feel comfortable with.

Full on Glam

Q&A with style creator, Theresa Foti
Bridal Hairstylist @ The Posh Bride in New Jersey


How would you describe this look?

This hairstyle is full on GLAM! If you took Rita Hayworth and moved her into 2018, this is how I would picture her hair. It has that old Hollywood/vintage vibe, but still looks modern and polished.

My favorite thing about this style is EVERYTHING! The volume, the shine, the softness, and of course the drama. This has been my most requested hairstyle to date.

Any advice for someone considering it?

Anyone that wants this hairstyle should consider purchasing some clip-in hair extensions because length and density are key to making this look work. Styling begins with layering the right products to ensure your waves will last but the way the hair is set is the single most important step in achieving this look. Without a proper set, the hair will not fall into place and could wind up looking curled rather than waved.

I always start off with a strong hold mousse, then layer flexible and strong hold hairsprays. When setting the hair, I start in the back and work my way forward, wrapping the hair around the iron in the same direction.

This hairstyle works for all face shapes and anyone can wear this hairstyle, but the weather can play an important role in how long it will last. If you are getting married in 95-degree humidity and are planning to take pictures on a windy beach, then this style might not be the right choice.

1940s Vintage with a Modern Twist

Q&A with style creator, Amanda Kopitz
Stylist @ Krave Salon in Southgate, MI


How would you describe this look?

I would describe this look as 1940s vintage with a modern twist.

My favorite aspect of styling vintage looks such as this is the process. Looks like this require me to go back to the basics of hair styling. Roller sets, wet sets, pin curls, smoothing brushes and backcombing are no longer used daily, but I think they are the most fun.

Any advice for someone considering it?

Keep in mind that styles like this take a bit of time, curl setting, hairspray, and LOTS of backcombing. I love Puff Me by Design Me for volume and hold.

Don’t be afraid of big hair. That’s what this look is all about, those big and voluminous victory rolls! Anyone with shoulder-length hair or longer can rock this fun vintage style.

Old Hollywood Glam

Q&A with style creator, Elisa Ramirez
Hairstylist @ The Upper Hand Salon Hyde Park in Houston, TX


How would you describe this look?

I would call this look old Hollywood glam. I really love how much fun you can have with the bang area of this style and the many different approaches you can take to achieve these kinds of looks.

Any advice for someone considering it?

Luckily there several ways to achieve this kind of look! For the ones that struggle with an iron, try doing a good old-fashioned roller set. I recommend prepping the hair with mousse and or a light gel prior to rolling. Once the hair is dried, brush it out with a boar bristle paddle brush. Hot rollers would also work to achieve this on already dry hair.

For the ones that swear by the iron, you could easily do this with either a wand or a traditional iron. The key is to make sure you are curling all the hair in the same direction or mimicking a roller set, so when it’s time to brush out you get that fingerwaved look. Also, make sure the barrel size is appropriate for your hair length.

Pay attention to where your part is. For these hairstyles, you want to make sure make the part is pretty deep so you get that signature big vintage bang. If styling on already dry hair, you will need a texturizing spray, hairspray, a teasing comb, and a boar bristle paddle brush. I like to prep the hair with lots of texture spray because it gives the hair lots of grip so the style won’t fall! My all-time favorite is Oribe’s texture spray. MoroccanOil also makes a great one!

Once the waves are put in, generously spray it with hairspray and more texture spray, then grab your paddle brush and brush out the curls until they resemble smooth waves. The next step will be teasing. Take a horseshoe section starting from temple to temple and tease away, making sure the top layer remains smooth. Don’t forget to tease the bang area, too!

You can use hairspray to hold the tease if your hair slips easily. Finish with more hairspray! These looks require lots of hold to keep their shape. My favorite hairspray is Super Fine by Oribe. These looks are so fun and versatile and they work on really any face shape and hair texture. Happy hairstyling, friends!

Q&A with style creator, Tiffany Massey
Stylist / Owner @ Structure Hair Studio in Dahlonega, GA


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

This look is elegant and vintage with a modern holiday twist when accented with the silver antlers.

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

I used Sexy Hair Play Dirty Spray Wax prior to heat styling, Healthy Sexy Soy Paste to control ends, and Big Sexy Hairspray and Play Hairspray to finish.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

The cool thing about this style is that it complements anyone with medium to long hair that is looking for a timeless look for any type of formal event.

Classic Structured Vintage Wave

Q&A with style creator, Anastasia Xenos
Independent Hairstylist @ AnastasiaX Hair Designs in Sydney, NSW


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

This is a classic structured vintage wave on short to medium hair with blonde balayage that creates texture and hold in the hair.

I love the lines and textures you see in this look on lighter hair as it stands out more than on darker hair, which also looks incredible by the way. I also love this look as it brings us back to the past and shows us how far our hairdressing world has come. Styles change, but they always seem to do a circle and come back around.

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

To create this look, I recommend that my clients wash their hair the night before with two shampoos and no conditioner so it has a bit of grit. I also recommend they dry it without any products.

I like to spray each small section of hair with a sea salt spray before curling with a small tong to create texture and hold in the hair. For final touches, I like to use a combination of a wax spray and light hairspray to create hold without looking too stiff.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

This style is great for any function from a birthday to a wedding and everything in between. It looks stunning on every hair type and length  Even with thin hair textures, extentions are easily applied to create volume and length if wanted or needed.

Modern Victory Rolls

Q&A with style creator, Tori Morton
Cosmetology Student @ Frederick School of Cosmetology in Frederick, MD


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

This look is a modern take on classic victory rolls. As far as texture goes, I opted for soft Hollywood waves. This is an eye-catching, unique style with vintage vibes.

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

I used a 1-inch Marcel curling iron and a teasing comb to create this look. I finished with a generous blast of Redken 28 Control Addict Hairspray.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

I recommend this style to anyone who wishes for a unique vintage look. While many vintage styles are easiest to produce on thick and textured hair, I’m a firm believer in encouraging women to rock whatever style she chooses, regardless of face shape, hair type, lifestyle and so on!

A good stylist should work around any obstacles to produce a custom look to fit each client, making them look and feel beautiful.

Betty Grable Hair

Q&A with style creator, Leslie Pacheco
Hairstylist / Makeup Artist @ Wildroot Salon in Tustin, CA


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

I would describe this hairstyle as 1940s Betty Grable hair. I love how this hairstyle catches people’s eyes when you’re wearing it.

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

I recommend Lottabody setting lotion for setting your curls, diluting it with water in a spray bottle. You’ll also need bobby pins and 3/4-inch curlers or curling iron.

I like using dry shampoo to create some texture. I spray it in the root area after I undo the pincurls. R+Co Death Valley dry shampoo is my favorite!

Suavecita pomade is great to smooth any flyaways when you’re brushing the hair up on the sides and back. After I have finished pinning the hair and curls in place where I want them, I use Kenra Volume Hairspray.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

I think this style looks great on clients with round shaped faces. Hair that is shoulder-length or maybe even an inch or two past the shoulders is ideal for this style. Curly or straight hair works, and I find it easy to do this style on medium to finer hair.

As for lifestyle of the client, this is a style someone would typically wear to a special occasion. Clients who like to take the time to set their hair in curls could wear this any day. You can wear a scarf at night to keep the style intact and wear it again the next day.

Fingerwave Updo

Here is one of the classic styles that will never actually go out of style. It always finds a way to change with the times!

How To Style:

  1. Starting with dry hair, section off a front top section and secure it with a clip. This is for your waves!
  2. Gather the rest of your hair and bring to the center back of the head. Smooth hair using a comb or brush and secure it into a ponytail with an elastic band.
  3. Wrap your ponytail around the base of the elastic band, creating a bun. Secure with bobby pins.
  4. Smooth out your front section. Using a deep waving iron, start towards the top of section and continue down through the length of hair. Arrange waves and secure them using hair pins and firm hold hairspray.
  5. Finish with your favorite hairspray.

Recommended Products:

My favorite hairspray is Pravana’s Super Shape Hairspray. It’s a build able hold spray, meaning the more you spray, the harder the hold! You don’t have to worry about buildup, however, because it is water soluble and washes right out.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

Any face shape that is comfortable with their hair up can sport this classic style, while hair that is long enough to put up in a bun is a must to recreate.

Sleek Hippie Chick

Now is the time to resurrect a classic hippy look from the 70s and give it a fresh twist.

How To Style:

  1. Starting with damp hair, apply a smoothing cream.
  2. Blow dry hair in sections using a flat brush. Make sure to keep air flow facing the floor to help prevent flyaways.
  3. Turn your flat iron to the lowest heat setting for your hair type. Working in small sections, glide the iron through your hair for a sleek look.
  4. Create a small to medium section of hair off of your part.
  5. Braid this section. The model is wearing a variation of the basic three-strand braid, but any type of braid will do.
  6. Add a cute headband and you’re ready to go!

Recommended Products:

A smoothing cream will help keep your style in place all day. My favorite is Pravana ‘s Model Behavior. It’s light enough for finer strands of hair, but can control even the thickest, unruliest hair as well.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

Any face shape can wear this look, though some will feel better with a slightly off center part instead of a direct center part. Hair that is naturally straight (or straightens well) and is medium to fine in texture works best for this style.

Victory Rolls Revisited

Your confidence will soar sporting this iconic look of the 40s!

How To Style:

  1. Starting with dry hair, use a 1-inch curling iron or wand to create curls throughout your head. The size of the sections will determine how strong the curls are. Smaller sections will create more volume, while larger sections will move you more towards a wave pattern.
  2. Part hair in center or slightly off center. Create sections from the front of the ear toward the crown.
  3. Brush hair straight up and smooth. Pinch at ends and begin rolling hair up towards scalp. This may take a few tries, so don’t get frustrated! Once it looks fabulous, use bobby pins to secure in place. Make an “X” pattern with your pins to lock them in.
  4. Finish off with your favorite hairspray and you’re ready to go!

Recommended Products:

To hold your curls and victory rolls in, PRAVANA’s Super Shape hairspray is a must. It gives more hold the more you apply.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

Diamond, heart and round faces wear this look best. Hair that is medium to thick will make recreating this style easier.

1980’s Big Hair

The 80s brought us lots of things — big hair being my favorite! Bring back that big curly hair in a softer, more feminine version.

How To Style:

  1. Before blow drying hair, apply a volumizing mousse. Comb through to ensure each strand is covered.
  2. Begin blow drying hair, holding your head upside down. This will help to give that great volume that you’ll need for this look.
  3. Once hair is completely dry, use hot rollers to set. Starting in the nape of your neck, take medium to small sections and roll hair. Make sure to alternate the direction that you wrap.
  4. If you run out of rollers, that’s ok! Simply pin the extra hair up while your rollers cool. Heat them back up and finish off your style. Rollers need to cool completely before you remove them to get the strongest bouncy curls.
  5. Once all youth hair is curled, flip your head back over and give them a good shake. No need to use any brushes, just your hands.
  6. Mist hair with hairspray and rock your big curls!

Recommended Products:

Pravana’s Full Volume volumizing foam not only aids in giving you big hair, but it is full of great ingredients that won’t dry your hair out or damage your color.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

Any face shape can wear these big curls, while hair that is medium to thick gives the best base for this style.

Rosie the Riveter Revamped

Just about every girl loves the Rosie the Riveter style. It’s tough, yet feminine at the same time.

How To Style:

  1. This is a great style for second-day hair!  You will need a bandana, a ponytail holder, and some red lipstick.
  2. Smooth hair straight back into a ponytail and secure with a hair tie.
  3. Pull hair slightly right in the front to give a slight lift at the top.
  4. Tie a folded bandana (from underneath) onto the top of your head.
  5. Add a red lip and you’ve got this classic look!

Recommended Products:

For second-day hair that may be feeling a little too lived in, try a dry shampoo. There are many brands out there, but my favorite for volume is Pravana Fresh. Kevin Murphy’s Fresh Hair is great for giving a softer feel.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

Any face shape can wear this cute ponytail recreation, while hair that is long enough to fit up in a ponytail is a must for this look.

Go Greased Lightening

Lots of curls and a leather jacket take you right back to the ending scene of the classic Grease.

How To Style:

  1. Before blow drying hair, apply a volumizing mousse. Blow dry hair using a small round brush.
  2. Using a 1\2-inch curling iron, start curling hair from the nape of your neck. Clip any hair not being curled up with a clip. Roll some curls towards your face, and some away from your face.
  3. When you reach the front sections, make sure to curl away from your face. When curling the bang or fringe area, hold hair out from your head and roll the iron down onto the base of the section.
  4. Let all of the curls cool completely before you use a wide tooth comb to pick through them. Don’t over-comb them though!
  5. Lift the front section and spray with hairspray, holding it in place while it dries.

Recommended Products:

Just like the 70s, a fabulous hairspray is a must. I love Pravana’s Super Shape. Give hair a good spray of this product to hold it all night. The best part is that it’s water soluble so it washes right out!

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

Round, heart or square face shapes look fabulous in this rockin’ style, while hair that is medium to thick and holds a curl well helps to recreate this look.

Pomp with a Twist

This James Dean-inspired pompadour haircut gets a modern edge with texture and pastel lavender.

How To Style:

  1. The first step in this look is the haircut. Ask your stylist for lots of texture through the top with a short crop on the sides.
  2. When styling, apply a volumizing mousse throughout the top while hair is damp.
  3. Use your fingers to lift hair while blowing drying. Be sure to direct the front section slightly back.
  4. Once hair is dry, use a texturizer to give separation and extra hold.
  5. If needed, add a little spray of your favorite hairspray.

Recommended Products:

There are many different types of texturing products out there. My favorite for this type of style is Pravana’s Lived In Powder Potion. It is a powder that transforms to a liquid, so it’s super easy to apply and gives amazing texture and volume!

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

Confident oval, heart or diamond shaped faces look fabulous in this cut, while hair that is straight or wavy and of medium density will make styling easiest.

Mod is Back

Long, straight hair paired with mod textured bangs brings this Austin Powers-inspired style back into play.

How To Style:

  1. Starting with damp hair, apply a straightening cream and comb through to ensure it is evenly distributed.
  2. Blow dry hair using a flat brush. Make sure to keep your blow dryer air flow facing the floor to help prevent flyaways.
  3. Once your hair is completely dry, turn your flat iron to the lowest heat setting for your hair type.
  4. Bring the flat iron through your hair in small sections. Give a slight bend toward the ends and fringe.
  5. Now rock this shagadelic look, baby!

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

Oval and diamond face shapes look smashing in this mod look. Hair that is naturally straight and of medium density makes styling easy.
