Vintage hairstyles from the past are making a comeback lately. Many celebrities and fashionistas are often spotted wearing vintage styles that were at one time all the rage. Here are four hairstyles from the past that have recently been made new again.
Made popular in the 1960s, the beehive is another hairstyle making a big comeback. For those who like having big hair, the beehive is the perfect hairstyle. In fact, some celebrities like to try to get the highest heights possible with their beehive as a way to create a modernized version of a classic do. This often takes a lot of hairspray or other hair product!
Just like other vintage hairstyles that are making a comeback, women wear the beehive in many ways to match their casual, elegant or professional look. Some celebrities who wear the beehive pull their bangs back while others leave them out to help frame the face.

Possibly one of the reasons vintage hairstyles are making a comeback is because it is easier to find a hairdo from back in time instead of trying to come up with a new one. Such is the case with a loosely worn braid. Braids were especially popular in the 19th century when women typically wore their hair long. As a way to dress up the braids for a wedding or other special event, the women simply tucked fresh, pastel-colored flowers at the top of the hair in the front or in between the strands.
The great thing about braids is the versatility they offer. Braids can either be worn as one single braid or a pair of braids. Hair is either braided together tightly or worn loosely. Another kind of vintage braid that is hot is the milkmaid braid. Women wrap this braid around the top of the head. Flowers get tucked inside the braid giving it a more feminine look. Whether you want to wear a simple or elegant hairstyle, braids are a great way to go.
The Hair Bun
The hair bun is another vintage style that thanks to its simplicity and versatility, is making a huge comeback. The bun is a great complement to both the casual look and the elegant one. This style is especially great for those who have hair that is medium or long in length. Many celebrities who get spotted or photographed while out and about are wearing their hair in their favorite kind of bun.
For a more casual hair bun, simply gather the hair loosely together and wrap it into a bun on top of the head or the back of the head. For a more elegant look, comb the hair tightly back with the bun either on top of the head or at the nape of the neck. The bun works great for those with or without bangs and for both curly and straight hair. It is also very easy to dress up a hair bun with beautiful hair jewelry or hair accessories.
Old Hollywood Waves
Chances are there will be a few celebrities at the next red carpet event, party or wherever else celebs hang out, who will be wearing old Hollywood waves. Also known as the “Veronica Lake” style, this gorgeous style that first became popular in the 1940s allows women to really let their hair down.
Many celebrities choose to wear their waves cascading down one shoulder, but the waves can also be worn with the hair parted in the back with the hair caressing both shoulders. The waves are perfect for those who are looking for a more glamorous look that is classic, elegant and timeless.
