The Perfect Rockabilly Ponytail
You’ve seen this vintage style on the likes of Gwen Stefani and Scarlett Johansson. Now get it for yourself!
Here are two videos that show you how to elevate the everyday ponytail from a sloppy modern look to very polished hairstyle with retro flair.
The first is a 50s style with a pomp in front, tight sides, a high ponytail, and an elegant cascade down the back.
The second is a 60s style. This is a look that’s easy to imagine a star like Brigitte Bardot or Christina Hendricks sporting. It features a lower ponytail with a band of hair wrapped around the elastic and a carefully arranged side part.
The joy of these styles is that they’re both very fast and easy. They also require few tools (just a brush, bobby pins, hair elastic, and some hairspray, and you’re good to go).
Take a look. Spice up your vintage look by trying a new hairstyle today!
