This Retro Hairstyle Is Guaranteed Glamour


There's a lot to love about our modern world — advances in medicine, cutting-edge technology. But, when it comes to hair, we wouldn't mind being transported back a few decades, specifically to the 1940s. Times were tough, but hair was having a moment in the form of gravity-defying, super-elegant victory rolls.
Eager to embark on our own beauty flashback, we summoned hair pro Michael Dueñas to teach us how to recreate this retro 'do — with a modern twist, of course. Our contributor network editor Lauren got glamorous just in time to sport this style during wedding season. And, we have a feeling she'll be adding a few more plus-ones to her list once this look goes public. See for yourself, above.
