Updating your look doesn’t have to mean modernising it, instead be inspired by bygone eras and try your hand at everything from forties waves to sixties volume, perfect for making a statement at weddings and parties.
The fastest way to rewind your look is with glossy marcel waves and a sparkling hair accessory, just like Jessica Biel.
Inspired by a bygone era, we love January Jones’ centre parted updo. Combining finger waves and pin curls, the red lipstick keeps it super chic.
Styling her hair into a deep side parting and tonging the mid lengths and ends into large barrel waves, actress Alice Eve gives her gleaming golden blonde hair the perfect retro edge.
Adele is an advocate of sixties style. Fashioning an old school beehive with sweeping side fringe and flicked black liner not only looks striking, it slims her face too.
You don’t have to do anything dramatic to retrofy your style! Copy Katherine Heigl and keep your hair glossy (there was less texture back then!) and just add a neat finger wave through the front sections of your updo.
Retro hairstyles are great for short and bobbed hair as Maggie Gyllenhaal demonstrates with this polished wavy bob. To get the kinks just right, tong and then clip into place until the hair completely cools.
Downton Abbey might be set in the twenties but Joanne Froggatt clearly gets her inspiration from the sixties. We love the way she’s combined her beehive with a side plait to make it super modern!
Famed for her forties style, Dita Von Teese’s victory rollered down-do is great for mid-length hair when you want a glam look for parties.
Getting her marcel waves down to a T, Kate Bosworth pins her hair back into a faux bob that would turn heads at weddings and special occasions.
Volume in hair was never so prominent as in the sixties and Salma Hayek’s swinging side parted bob is Barberella beautiful!
