Popular Hairstyles of the 1920s, 1960s Haircuts for Women

From the outrageous parities to the explosion of music from Sinatra and Elvis, the 1920-60’s, certainly had flair and fashion. Most notable, more or so today, are the hairdos from those time periods. Whether it is for work, an everyday routine, a school dance,


These hairstyles are stunningly chic, classy, and cute. These decades’ hairstyles are often confused for one another,
which makes some sense since they are closely related. In chronological order, here are some of the most popular hairdos from those eras:


Finger Curls
- There are many ways to get this style of the roaring twenties, but it’s usually done by first curling your hair normally, then loosening them with a comb. The next part can get tricky. Carefully, starting from the parting of your hair, you will need to hold down the top piece with one finger. Then you brush the hair, depends on how many waves you want, depends on how far down you comb, and comb it a bit forward, creating a slight wave. After that, spray that area with some sort of setting spray, clip a clamp onto that wave, and do the same thing again and again until you’re done. It is possible to achieve this look without using a hair iron.

The Marcel Wave - has a similar look to finger curls, but doesn’t use the same technique, just a hair iron. It also consists of smaller curls and one large wavy one on the side of the face.

It is interesting to note that the bob hairdo was a rage in the 1920’s specifically.

Pin Curls - Originating around the mid 30’s, think pin-up girls, and you get the idea. Pin curls are known sometimes as vintage/retro curls, when in reality, the style vintage curls or having the retro look dates back to 1920’s and only became a term on its own since it was defined by many as curls that have that refer to that ‘old twenties/fifties/sixties period look’. This look can be done with a hair iron, hair rollers, or by sleeping with pins in your hair over night.  The idea is to have less than more, not crazy amount of curls, but deep, loose ones.

Bouffant - Instead of a full on bouffant, you could opt for a half-up one. Either way, this neat updo requires the sectioning of all the hair. Then you’d brush these sections in the appropriate directions, depending on where each section is, generally, each section should be fashioned towards the top back of the head, but whatever is desired, go for it. The sections that are on the outside of your crown of hair, the ones seen more, can be teased a bit to give the bouffant shape and less flat. This is a must for the front sections.

The Beehive - is very similar to the bouffant; the beehive is all about the hair being stacked on top of the head. Can be seen on Audrey Hepburn, Christina Aguilera and Amy Winehouse, this style is bold and also takes a lot of hairspray, bobby pins, and the right amount of volume.
