Every bride-to-be wants her wedding to be special, memorable, and different from the rest. That includes the venue, the gown, and definitely the hair. While there are a number of wedding hairstyles to choose from, you may be interested in one of the latest styles that are causing a lot of buzzes. If you love all things vintage, then you’ll fall in love with the vintage wave.
The vintage wave all started in the 1920s with the now famous “flapper” girls. These foxy ladies were the toast of the town, sporting short, form-fitting dresses, and short, stylish bobs. These women were way ahead of their time and their classic chin length bobs with sexy bangs are becoming popular all over again. The vintage wave is perfect for a bride that wants to look classy, sexy and sassy all at the same time.
In order to pull off the vintage wave, you’ll need to have a bob. Chin length is best but your hair can be longer. For those with really long hair that don’t necessarily want to cut their locks to get the bobbed look, you can still achieve the vintage wave by simply punning your hair underneath, which will create the illusion of a bob. To get the best vintage wave, you’ll want to make an appointment with a professional, experienced hair stylist, preferably one that specializes in doing waves. One of the popular ways to create the waves involves the use of a wave iron. Unlike the traditional hot iron, which is straight, the wave iron is a specially made hot iron that is designed with ridges, which creates the waves as it curls and heats the hair. This tool is perfect for those with stick straight hair.
However, if you already have wavy or curly hair, you’ll want to either flat iron your hair straight or blow dry your locks straight beforehand. This will make the wave iron more effective in creating just the right type of waves for the vintage look.
Pulling off the vintage wave look isn’t just about the waves themselves, but also your bangs. To complete the look, you’ll want to opt for side swept bangs, which can be pinned to the side. This is ideal for those that already sport long bangs. You can choose to simply tuck your bangs behind your ear or if you are a fan of accessories, you can clip or pin your bangs to the side using a cute hair barrette or other fashionable clip to match your dress and other jewelry. For those with short bangs, you can still pull off the look by sweeping your bangs across your forehead as is, without the need for tucking or pinning them.
You can sport your vintage wave with a range of accessories and makeup looks, making this 1920s style completely versatile and allowing you to create a bridal look that is truly your own.
