9 Classic Updo Hairstyles From The 60’s
While the 21st century is known for all things modern, we wouldn’t mind trying the sweet ‘60s hairstyles. Anything but over dated, these hippie-chic and classy style is easy to recreate and totally #HOTD (hairstyle of the day) worthy. From Marion Cotillard’s beehive to Joelle Carter’s bumped up ponytail, get some instant hair-spiration from these retro queens.
1. Side-Swept Beehive:
Top marks to Marion Cotillard, who channelled 60s style with this magnificent beehive at the premiere of the Blood Ties in Cannes. The actress looks smoking hot with this hairdo, and we particularly love Marion’s right parting that frames her face beautifully. To achieve this look, use anti-frizz and pin your hair up tightly to prevent flyaways. Once done styling, pair it with minimal makeup and nude lipstick.
2. Half Beehive:
At the 85th Annual Academy Awards, singer Adele wore her hair in a half beehive – a perfect hairstyle with a hint of glamour. We love how retro her look is, with volume at the back and long, face-framing bangs on either side. She further matched her back-combed up-do with ultra-long lashes, porcelain smooth skin and a nude, matte lip.
3. Half Up Half Down:
4. Beehive With Bangs:
If you’ve always been a fan of the Audrey Hepburn beehive with side bangs, but don’t have the time or a good hair care product to pull it off, here’s your solution: Gizzi Erskine’s vintage beehive, which she rocks at pre-BAFTA party. The actress paired her sleek up-do with a black dress, gorgeous statement jewellery, and sleeker, minimal make-up, including a coral lip – just like Audrey’s!
5. Bumped Up Bun:
WOW, indeed! Cheryl Cole looks smokin’ hot with this romantic and chic Hollywood-style updo. The pretty singer paired her messy, bumped up bun with a black Mullet dress, a dreamy smokey eye, and nude lips at Foxcatcher Premiere in Cannes. Give your vintage bun some extra texture by twisting sections of hair into a bun behind your head.
6. High Twisted Bun:
7. Beehive Low Pony:
8. 60’s High Ponytail:
9. French Twist:
Don’t be afraid to twist your hair just like this model at the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. Separate hair into two sections and twist them around each other at the back of your head and pin into place. End result: a glamorous retro French twist.
