Us Glitterati gals were spoiled rotten this month and received five brand new Crown & Glory designs that are being released for S/S15! As usual, Sophie has so many exciting things planned for this year.
I was particularly taken with this retro-inspired scallop crown and it got me thinking that us short-haired gals often feel left out when it comes to recreating all of the vintage hair styles that are so popular these days. So I thought I’d share how to get a few of these looks without a lot of length.
A casual beehive goes well with almost any hair candy and it’s perfectly suited to the 1960s vibe of this scallop crown. It’s easiest to style with medium-short hair or longer, but even if you have a pixie crop, just backcomb the hair along the crown of your head and give it a little spritz with some hair spray. Then gently comb the top layer of hair to smooth it down. If you need help styling a beehive, Carrie has a great tutorial.
For a simple style reminiscent of vintage pin curls, simply curl the ends of your fringe or front section of your hair and tease the roots to help you create the shape. Then just roll the section of hair into a large curl and secure it with bobby pins. Douse liberally with hair spray and voila, a chic ‘do in less than 5 minutes. You can see how I did a similar style with two curls in this post.
There’s something a faux bang that’s so fun and full of pizazz. You can style it with a long side fringe or by sectioning off the front of your hair. I simply curl the ends of my hair, roll it into place, and then pin it underneath but for a detailed tutorial check out this great one from Ree Ree Rockette.
I’d love to hear from other short-haired babes: have you recreated any vintage ‘dos? Let me know if you give any of these styles a try!
