Vintage hairstyles are old, we agree, but sometimes you just can’t beat a good old classic, can you? Our current favourite – retro curls! Every now and then we spot both, Indian and international celebrities, wearing this hairstyle and they look oh-so-stunning. Since this hairstyle is timeless, we decided to re-create it and guess what, it is not as complicated as it looks.
In fact, you too can look like a glamorous Hollywood siren. All you need is a step-by-step guide to walk you through the process and that’s exactly what we are about to help you with.
You will need:
- Rattail comb
- Hair clips
- Paddle brush
Step 1: Start by washing your hair and dry it a little so it is not soaking wet anymore.
Step 2: Part your hair on one side and start by picking a small section of hair.
Step 3: Comb it smooth and hold it between your right thumb and forefinger, then place the left index finger on top of the strand and coil the section around it until it is close enough to your head to pin.
Step 4: Fasten the coil flat to your head and secure using bobby pins.
Step 5: Repeat this on the rest of your hair grabbing small sections.
Step 6: Once you’ve completed making small hair coils, spritz some hairspray to hold them in place.
Step 7: Now wait for your hair to dry. The duration will depend on the texture of your hair. Anything between 4-5 hours should work.
Step 8: Once your hair is fully dry, remove the pins and carefully preserve the side parting. Brush your hair with a paddle brush, and there you have it, perfect retro curls!
