For long, medium length or short hair—we have the perfect vintage hairstyle for you!
by Andrea Fowler

From bold lip color to thick cat eyeliner and bouffant’s that command attention, there’s so much to love about vintage-style beauty trends. And we’re happy to announce that all of the trends of the past are coming back in a big, modern way. Pin-curl updos are the new messy bun and flapper-style embellished hair accessories are the hottest thing since the flower crown.

When thinking about which vintage wedding hairstyle is right for your wedding day, take your wedding dress neckline and your jewelry into consideration too! It can help you narrow down your perfect style.
