Hairstyles are known to make a definitive mark on how an era is remembered, but like all things in fashion, they have a good chance of coming back and make a debut au-pair with the hot clothes-styling trends that seem to be re-surfacing from history books.

What makes this movement so appealable to every fashion aficionado, is the fact that we’re starting to see great takes on styles from the past with a twist from the modern times, creating an aesthetically pleasing overall look. Let’s take a look at a few of our favorite vintage hairstyles!

High Volume Strands

If you have natural waves this undercut is a great way of flaunting them, make sure to style them lightly so that there is a visible definition between each lock. We love it!

Strands All Over The Place

If rough, rugged, and outgoing is your MO, then adding a bandana to keep the strands back can keep you comfortable and with a more carefree style.

Messy and Wavy Mullet

The 80s are back big time, but with a modern twist. A messy and wavy mullet may be longer than what you’d normally consider getting but it can be a very seductive style for those who wear it with the confidence it deserves.

Rusty Rough Texture

Even though Thor has lost his mighty locks in the latest Avengers movie, the classic Thor look, with its rusty rough texture, is still a surefire hit. This longer style is perfect for strong breezes near cool waters.

Loose Curls and Undercut

If you have naturally curly hair, you don’t have to do much to give off that vintage vibe. Pair those curls with a newsboy cap like this and you’ll look like you just stepped out of a period film.
