Vintage looks for a new you.

We know you like to keep on top of what’s new in the realm of haircuts. And, of course, we always love a good modern day haircut! But, this year we’re taking things back a few years with styles inspired by vintage haircuts. Some of these styles you’ll already know and love, others might be new to you. Either way, these vintage haircuts have been coming back in style with a vengeance. Read more about the vintage haircuts we’re loving in 2017.

Vintage Haircuts You Need to Know About This Year

The Vintage haircuts you need to know about for 2017
The very sleek pageboy.

1. Pageboy Haircut

The pageboy haircut has had several periods of popularity over the years. This cut was inspired by medieval knights’ actual page boys! It became more popular again in the ’40s and in the early ’90s. The traditional pageboy haircut is curled under and worn with bangs. We love this curled-under look as a real change of pace from the model off duty hair we’ve been seeing everywhere lately.

Frizz-free for the ’70s.

2. Center Part and Long Hair

The’70s are calling, and they want their haircut back. The super-long (like booty length-long) straight hair with a center part was the look of the early ’70s. We love this style today because it can be so darn sleek and chic! We like to wear this style with ultra glossy, frizz-free locks. To get the look, wash and condition your hair, and before blow drying use the Bed Head By TIGI Control Freak Serum. It will give you all kinds of shine and frizz protection.

A much more relaxed take on the ’20s bob.

3. Blunt Cut Bob

The blunt cut, chin-length bob was a huge staple of the roaring ’20s. The big cut was seen as a huge break from the tradition of long hair for women. And it feels the same now! Nothing feels quite as good as a big chop. Going for the chin length is still bold, even today, so make sure you style it in a modern way. We like to scrunch in a little bit of Suave Professionals Texturizing Sea Salt Spray. It will loosen up and chill out this severe cut.

A very ’60s pixie.

4. Short Pixie

Short pixie cuts were a staple in the late ’50s and early ’60s. Think of the gamine actresses back in the day with a short cut and giant hat on top! We generally like the modern pixie a little bit longer so you have something to play with. Having a bit of hair to cover your forehead makes the short pixie much easier to pull off. Style your fringe with the S Factor By TIGI Creamy Molding Wax. It will hold your bangs in place without looking stiff.

The shorter, the better.

5. Micro Bangs

The 50’s, pin-up girls, and micro-bangs all went hand in hand. Teensy short bangs were such a staple, that they really held on until the 1960’s. We’re totally with you, micro bangs are a Look. You have to wear this style with confidence and some long hair to even it all out. Would you wear micro-bangs?

Don’t sleep on this style.

6. The Rachel

Oh yes, the Rachel haircut is totally back in action. And, surprisingly, it’s pretty easy to wear this cut in 2017! Use the Bed Head by TIGI Stick to create the sleek pieces. For a modern look, have this cut a little longer past your collarbone, and wear it with wavy hair. Simple!
