If you feel like your current hairstyle seems so dull, it might be time to make a change. But it can be challenging to decide on what hairstyle to use. If you want to be daring, you should look into some retro hairstyles. Though they seem dated, many of them have an elegant effect that makes them an excellent choice for those who want to look ahead of the crowd. Here are some great retro options that work even today:

French Updo

There is no one more elegant than the French, and they were hard to beat during the 60s when French actresses graced the screen with this hairstyle. This updo gives you the ingenue look. The look requires that you wash your hair a bit so that the hair has added texture. You then have to tease the crown section of your hair. Afterward, you’ll need to smooth down the top layer with a brush. You then pull the top section of your hair into a half ponytail and then tie it up. With some eyeliner, you’ll look uniquely innocent.

Pin Curls

For those who want the Marilyn Monroe look, then pin curls are the way to go. This is the classic 50s look that makes you look like a movie star. It does take a bit of work, though. For one, you are going to need clean hair. Your hair will be easier to style this way, and preparing it with some shampoo and conditioner can be a big help. Usually, curling can be difficult, but you can get a new spin-styler hair curler to help reduce the difficult curling time. If you want the curls to stay in shape, you’ll want to pin them overnight and to brush them out with some hairspray assistance.

Pixie Cut

Pixie cuts are a cute, low-maintenance hairstyle that looks great in its simplicity. Audrey Hepburn made it work, and you can, too. If you have had long hair for years, you can shake things up with this hairstyle. You’re going to have to request it at your salon specifically. A pixie cut doesn’t work without an expert hairstylist building the foundation. When it is done, it’s time for you to add personal touches to it that will make the look your own. You can mix it up with hair dyes or even accessories.

High Ponytail Bound Twice

This look is a great and simple one that will give you a sexy look that is also pretty practical. Anyone can do it with just a simple hair elastic and a few bobby pins. It also works excellently with unwashed hair. You can also use it in a variety of situations. The simple way to do it is to brush your hair up into a high ponytail and then secure it with an elastic. You can then brush the ponytail again wand add another elastic to it.

It’s the 21st century, but style never ages. Some of these retro styles have a timeless quality that will ensure that they work even decades from now. Experiment with some of these styles and see how fresh they look on you to see what works.
