10 Retro Hairstyles That Are Hot Right Now
The Marilyn Monroe pin curls and Brigitte Bardot blowout are back. See how to give a chic update to these retro hairstyles now
Finger wavesFinger waves make us think of Marilyn Monroe with her white dress flipping up over the air vent. Philip B. says this retro hairstyle is flattering and flirty, "sort of like a cross between Ava Gardner's look in the '50s and '20s flapper style."
Keep it modern: "What makes this hairstyle look up to date is its free-flowing quality. It looks really touchable, and the waves aren't so sculpted as before -- they're more deconstructed," says Philip B.
How to: Start with dry hair. Work in 1- to 2-inch sections: lightly mist each section with a texturizing spray like Philip B. Maui Wowie Beach Mist, $16.99, and wind it into a hot roller. When rollers cool, sculpt the curls with your fingertips and finish with a misting of hairspray for hold and shine.
