If so, you’ve come to the right place as we breakdown some vintage wedding hair that you should consider for your big day. These hairstyles are making a comeback and they're sure to ‘wow’ your guests without having to get professional help.

Here are some vintage wedding hairstyles that you should consider bringing back, certified to make you stand out when you walk down the aisle.

Loose waves

Simple and effective. The loose waves look can provide a romantic hairstyle that you can easily do yourself and all it needs is a curling tong, heat protectant and some hairspray. This is probably a style that you’re familiar with, but this is why it’s such a unique style - whether it’s for a casual day out or a special occasion, it can work wonders for your look. 

All you need to do is spray your hair some heat protectant and wrap your hair strand around the curling tong. Hold for 2 minutes and then let it drop to provide a perfect bounce and spring in your hair.

The messy updo

Don’t worry, it’s not as messy as it sounds. The messy updo vintage wedding hair provides an elegant look, showing plenty of volume in your hair too. It may look difficult to pull off on the surface, it’s actually easier than you think!

To create this look, first you’ll need to curl your hair lightly and then backcomb the crown towards the back of the head. Smooth this over with a brush to ensure the hair looks smooth. Then, pin it back to create a loose quiff. The loose section at the back of your head then needs to be made into a ponytail, leaving front sections. Use the ponytail to make a messy bun at the top of your head, pinning the strands around the base that you create at the top.

Finally, with the remaining loose strands of hair, you need to wrap these around your bun and pin them. For a finishing touch, dangle some strands to the side of your face and hold it all in place with your hair spray.

The vintage crown

Another classic form of vintage wedding hair is the vintage crown hairstyle. This works by creating soft waves with a middle parting and then finishing it with a wedding headpiece. Start off using a tail comb and parting your hair through the middle. 

You’ll need to curl parts of your hair, so protect the locks by spraying some hair protector first. Then, lightly curl your hair ensuring that the front sections of your hair curl away from your face. Finish the hairstyle with an elegant headpiece that’s perfectly fitting for your wedding.

The chignon

Taking inspiration from the French styles, the romantic chignon can present your hair gracefully during the big day. This hairstyle works particularly well with hair lengths that are medium to long lengths. 

To achieve this, simply put your hair into a low ponytail but leave some sections of your hair to the sides of your face. Then, with the ponytail, create a small gap between your hair with your fingers and place the ponytail in this gap and tuck it in. Secure it with some hair pins.

With the strands on the side of your face, just lightly curl these and leave them hanging to the sides of your face. Twist some of the hair strands and pin them in place to finish the look.

Glam waves

Perhaps the loose waves look isn’t extravagant enough for you. If not, don’t worry as you can easily glam it up with the glam waves vintage wedding hair. It adds a little extra to the traditional wavy look whilst still looking elegant in its own right.

To start off with, use a tail comb to create a deep side parting. Then, before curling, spray some heat protector onto your hair and give them waves but tighter than the loose waves. This is so your hair can be given the added volume that it needs to provide the ultimate Hollywood look. 

Once the curls have cooled, use a natural-bristle brush to loosen the curls and part them slightly.
