How to creat tht classic vintage look with short hair

  • Step 1

    I like to use hair pastels or alternatively *lots* of Batiste Dry Hair Shampoo to give your hair a matte texture so that you don’t have to backcomb. If using pastels, it also adds a nice element of coloured hair. You can also find a pastel that is close to your natural hair colour - I used white.

  • Step 2

    Start with dry, clean hair

  • Step 3

    The next step is to apply the hair pastels. Section your hair and start at the bottom, rubbing the hair pastel up and down your hair. Straighten with hot straighteners to seal the pastel pigment into your hair.

    You will probably (like me) end up with pastel all over your clothes, so wear something scruffy that you don’t mind turning pink/blue/green etc.

  • Step 4

    Now here’s where it gets tricky. Section your hair again for how you want your rolls positioned.

  • Step 5

    Pick up your hair strand at the end with your forefinger and with your thumb begin to roll the hair up. Tuck your thumb deep in the roll and continue to roll with the index finger.

    Your thumb with feel snug withing the roll. Roll until you reach the top, then slide in a hair pin/bobby pin into the victory roll to secure. Ease your thumb out of the roll carefully.

    If you find it’s easier to do this process using opposite fingers, do so.

  • Step 6

    Tuck any hair that’s spilling out into the roll. If some hairs are standing up over the roll, brush them down with your fingers.

    Step 7

    Arrange the rest of your hair how you will. I tucked my short bits behind me ears and fluffed up the back of my hair then put on my bandanna. Hairspray all over.
