Here’s a pretty vintage hairstyle you can create in a jiffy!

Oh, the glamour and charm of vintage hairstyles. These looks may be decades old, but even just the littlest update here and the smallest variation there would easily make a retro hairstyle look hot and trendy all over again.

In this video, Nicole Andersson shows us how to create a vintage hairstyle that’s all about teasing, curling, and putting hair up in a sexy ponytail. Hit play and get ready to achieve that old Hollywood glamour that never goes out of style.

Create a vintage hairstyle with your curling iron

1

Moisturize

After washing your hair with your favorite shampoo, apply Cream Silk Dry Rescue Daily Treatment Conditioner to make sure you have soft, smooth, manageable hair.

2

Protect

Styling your hair with heated tools causes damage and dryness to your strands, so before you begin, make sure they’re protected. Apply two to four pumps of hair serum or a heat protectant spray like TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Flat Iron Smoothing Spray evenly on your hair to shield it from extreme heat. 

3

Tease

Take a section of hair on top your head and tease to create volume

4

Put it up

Cover the teased section with strands from the front. Then, gather all of the hair into a ponytail and secure with elastic. Take a small section of hair from the ponytail and wrap it around the elastic, then secure with a bobby pin.

5

Curl

You’d want nice curls for this vintage look so take small sections of hair and twist each section around the curling iron until the entire ponytail is curled. Lightly tease the tail to add some volume, then gently brush to smoothen it out.

6

Spray

Keep everything in place by spraying it with TRESemmé Freeze Hold Hairspray. This hair spray is perfect for updos and ponytails  because it keeps them from drooping.

Pretty, isn’t it? This vintage hairstyle is perfect for formal events, date nights, and parties. And well, if you want to wear it to the supermarket too, we’re definitely not stoping you!
