Truth is, old Hollywood hairstyles can look great on any bride. What makes the hairdos special is that it allows movement and touching – something that grooms would love, but not a lot of hairstyles would allow. Typically, vintage Hollywood hairstyles are kept down, parted to the side and curled softly to create soft, feminine waves. There’s no need for a lot of bobby pins or hairsprays that can be pains at the end of the day.
This may be the reason why celebrities are spotted gracing the red carpet with vintage hairstyles. The ensemble usually involves wearing vintage dresses with deep red lipsticks. And while this look can look perfect on awards nights or a fun night downtown, even brides can pull off this look on their wedding day.
Flapper hairstyle may be the most popular hairdo that modern brides adopt from the women of the twenties. The style exudes dramatic appeal and makes the brides look effortlessly classy and elegant. The flapper works best on women with short hair (falling just on the nape) but brides with long hair even camouflage the look by making low nape buns.
This being said, it is safe to assume that the flapper hairstyle works well with any hair types, lengths and textures. With few easy-to-do steps, a lot of brides can look dashing and ethereal on their wedding day:
Step 1:Wash and condition the hair. Be sure to use curl-enhancing shampoos and conditioners. One trick in achieving the best results is to apply volumizing mousse evenly throughout the damp, towel-dried hair.
Step 2: Plug a set of medium to large hot rollers and allow them to heat.
Step 3: Create three sections of the hair. The two sections should rest on each side of the head and the third one should consist of the bangs and head from the crown. This center section should be further separated into three tinier sections.
Step 4: Carefully roll the three sub-sections from the center section of the hair with the hot rollers. Use one roller for each section.
Step 6: If you’re satisfied with the waves, use hairspray evenly throughout the hair and allow it to dry. After few minutes run a round brush gently through the hair. To do this properly, put the brush under the hair sections to avoid flyaways. Use the round brush to curl the tips of the hair inward and make a roll around the forehead for a more dramatic look.
Step 7. Pull the hair from one side of the face and tuck in under the ear. Secure the strands with hair accessories like diamond brooch or flirty hair clips.
Brides who are wearing this style should be wary of their makeup. Usually, the eye shadows are kept at a minimal amount, and bronzer is used instead of blush-ons. The hairdo would look great with bright red lipsticks that accentuate full, pouty lips.
