It would be hard to find more glamorous looks than 1940’svintage hairstyles.  With pin curls and updos with side rolls, 1940’s vintagehairstyleswere meant to be noticed.  Two popular 1940s vintage hairstyles are the pompadour for women, which pairs “big hair” in front with sleek hair in back, and the basic updo.  Both are glamorousstylesfor when you need to look chic and polished.
Another 1940’svintagehairstyleis the basic pin curl set.  The old fashioned way to create pin curls is to wash hair at night, wait until it is almost dry, take small sections of hair and curl them around your fingers.  Then pin them in place with bobby pins.  When you wake up in the morning, take the pins out and comb hair with your fingers.

Hairstylesfrom the 1940s include updos and peek-a-boo bangs.  Women everywhere have their own versions of theupdo, another great style in 1940s hair.  If your hair is shoulder length or longer, the updo is easy.  It’s a great option for badhairdays, and all it requires is a paddle brush, a comb, a hair elastic, andbobby pins.
Here’s how to create a 1940s updo for yourself.  Brush your hair back and gather it into a low ponytail at the nape of your neck. Secure it with the hair elastic. Split theponytailin two. Using a comb, tease each half. To do this, place the comb in the section of hair, about halfway down the length of the section, and then comb it back towards the elastic.  Take one section, twist it under, and secure with bobby pins. Do the same with the other side. If you want the sleek look of1940s hair, smooth out stray hairs and spray in place.

1950s star Marilyn Monroe often wore soft curls at an angle that framed her face.  This is one of the best vintage hairstyles for hair that is shoulder length or shorter. You can use medium sized foam rollers that you get at the drugstore, or you can use hot rollers.
To set hair, apply mousse to hair that is not quite dry, then comb it into several sections. Roll sections of hair under, and roll the sections framing your face so that they’re angled toward your face rather than horizontal. Once hair is dry or the hot rollers have cooled, take rollers out. Using only your fingers, arrange the curls in front so that they frame your face. Once you get it just right, spray it in place withhairspray.  This glamorous look is one of the most popularvintage hairstyles, and for good reason.
