Beautiful female hairstyles in the style of the 60s meet surprisingly accurate on the bravest fashion trends in which the individuality of the image is appreciated. Such a styling looks good both in everyday life and in the evening, and in the design you do not have to resort to the services of a professional hairdresser. You can create any of them with your own hands.
Here’s how to make a modern version of an elegant retro.
Haircut in the style of the 60s “Babette”: Step by step instructions
The Babette styling has become a true symbol of the 60s of the last century, Brigitte Bardot has made it a cult. The actress is still considered a symbol of sex, and the styling enjoys real world popularity, while her 60s-style hairstyle, as this style icon made her, is quite simple.
This styling is done on long curls of any strength and is perfectly combined with Pony, owner of medium length hairs to create the volume you want, using Chignon matched to the tone of your own hair – that’s what many fashionistas of that era did did. But you can also use modern hair styling tools, such as “Twister” or “Bagel” hair pieces, which will allow you to instantly a voluminous and stylish hairstyle in the style of the 60s “Babette” on medium-long hair.
To make it yourself, you need: a comb with frequent teeth, a hair brush, hairpins, stealth and a silicone rubber gum, matched to the color of your own curls.
The classic “Babette”, like many styles of that time, is run on the basis of a stack – not the surest way to add volume to the hair. You can make your own hands in the ’60s style with the help of modern styling tools with a styling that is perfect for your hair type and designed to add extra volume to your curls, for example with silicone. However, to withstand all the rules of style, it is necessary to avoid too strong and effective agents that are too strong in the finished styling – for example too strong fixatives that give the hair a “plastic” shine. The style of such style includes grace and lightness and even slight negligence, and not the traces of many hours of languor in the hairdressing chair.
To create a 60s style hairstyle, just follow the simple step by step instructions. To achieve such styling, the owners of thin and unruly hair need large-diameter curlers to add volume to the hair – you do not have to curl your hair into curls. Apply a foam or mousse to the washed and well-dried towel with a towel and spread the styling over the entire length. Use a comb, cut the horizontal strand over your forehead and turn it on the curlers, curl all the strands from the forehead to the head and let the curls dry at room temperature.
Treat dried curls with a small amount of varnish and form a voluminous volume, attach all curly strands on the back of your head and imitate smoothed pile. Remaining free locks accumulate as close as possible to the crown in the tail. Attach it with an elastic band and form a volumetric free bundle by passing the ends of the strands through the elastic band once again and forming a loop.
So you can only lay long hair if your hair is of medium length, use a bagel or a Twister Barrette to create a jet. On request, especially if you are creating a hairstyle for a special occasion, you can use patch cords or hairpieces.
Separate some strands at the base of the bundle and twist around it, cover the place of attachment, fasten the ends of the strands with hairpins and hide their ends in the installation.
Fix the styling with a small amount of varnish. With its expressive and expressive style, this hairstyle fits perfectly with a variety of decors – ribbons, hoop earrings and pretty hairpins. In the original version of Babette Brigitte Bardot decorated this hairstyle with a wide velvet ribbon with bow.
This hairstyle and its various variations are among the most sought after styling in today’s wedding fashion. This trend is not only influenced by the fashion for the 60s and the style of early retro.
Simple and elegant 60s style wedding hairstyles
Simple, elegant and feminine wedding hairstyles in the style of the 60s make it surprisingly easy to create a simple, elegant and at the same time exclusive image of the bride. Another styling that is also in demand in the wedding fashion is the French Roller, which is made on any length hair, with the slight negligence of the styling pattern emphasizes the romantic character of the bride.
Both the Babette and the French Roller are in perfect harmony with dresses and accessories of various styles. And considering that today I choose new style icons for my own weddings, this trend is by no means to be missed.
Hairstyles in the style of the 60s for long and medium hair
“Babetta” is not the only cult hairstyle in the ’60s style for long hair that is in demand both in everyday life and for special occasions. The stylized “Malvina” is considered one of the most elegant and accurate trends of today. Such styling is done on both long and middle hair, and her drawing also requires extra volume on her forehead and on her temples. The classic version is executed with basal stacks. The women of the sixties could not even dream of modern styling, which makes it possible to avoid manipulations that are so ruthless to hair.
So, to create a 60s-style hairstyle for medium hair, you need a foam or mousse with strong fixation, a brush, curlers with very large diameter, paint and a few hairpins. Apply to washed and slightly dried towel hair styling, spread over the entire length and wrap the strands on the curlers. Let the hair dry completely and loosen the curls, comb them gently and stretch them into individual strands.
You have to get a free and a bit sloppy volume, but not to “real” curls.
Create extra volume over the forehead and place the strands from the temples behind the head, secure them with the help of overlapping studs and hide their ends in the posts. Make sure that the resulting styling pattern is for you, if necessary, you can repair it with your hands – the slight negligence of such a styling is part of their style.
Hairstyles “tail” and “twist” in the style of the 60s
In the same way, in the style of the 60s, a slightly negligent, well-known hairstyle “tail” emerges, which over time has created a real revolution in the fashion world. To lure or not to make hair depends only on the structure of your hair and the amount of styling you want to get.
But to reproduce the styling patterns that are really relevant for the sixties, the same pre-styling as for the “Malvina” will be possible. Decorate the strands around the face, experiment with side curls and avoid open tight curls. Prefix the hair at the back of the head and tie a loose tail without being taken away by the extra decoration – naturalness and negligent carelessness – that is the style of modern hairstyles in the style of the 60s.
Another hairstyle that came to the current trends of the time is the “French Twist”. Elegant and classy high-styling looks great on hair of any length and does not require any extra preparation of curls. A beautiful vertical “roller” can be made in minutes, because modern hairdressers have invented a special hairpin of the same name – “Twist” for such a styling.
Hairstyles in the style of the 60s for short hair
Hairstyles in the style of the 60s for short hair deserve special attention, in this time several styles and hairstyles, which are currently in the trend, appeared at once. In particular, asymmetrical versions of classic short hair cuts, such as “bob” and “square” on a leg with a long bangs and a completely open neck in the sixties, were worn only by the most daring women of fashion. A characteristic feature of such a styling was a smooth pattern created by long “oblique” pony bangs on the eyes and additional volume on the back of the head. Stylists of today’s hairdressers like to reproduce such a pattern and simplify the daily and festive styling of such hairstyles considerably through a multi-level haircut. Today, a highly professional haircut offers stylish styling and a pair of large curlers to create extra volume where the styling design demands.
We are also committed to the current fashion for short “boyish” haircuts of the sixties, until this time the women have not cut their hair so short. But all that changed with the appearance on the catwalks of the English model of Twiggy – the branch girl who became the first model with the look of a teenager. Thviggy’s signature haircut was a “garcon” with a long, slanted bang that she has not changed during her career.
Today’s fashion fans love “Garcon” not just for provocative sexy style, but also for unmatched simplicity of installation. Casual options “garcon” can not be laid, properly decorated haircut and clean, beautiful hair – the best styling. Evening hair requires a minimum of time and styling, hair can be disheveled with your hands or gently smoothed like twiggy.
Such hairstyles in the style of the 60s as in the photo, are today cited confidently by the hottest trends:
