Popular 1940’s Vintage Hairstyles

It would be hard to find more glamorous looks than 1940’s vintage hairstyles.  With pin curls and updos with side rolls, 1940’s vintage hairstyles were 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 glamorous styles for when you need to look chic and polished.

Another 1940’s vintage hairstyle is 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.
