Lisa Freemont is (in our opinion) one of the best ambassadors out there for bringing vintage glamour back. Her hair tutorials are so easy to follow, and guarantee the wow factor. Here is one of our favourites- we’d love to see how you get on.
TIP Subscribe to Lisa’s YouTube channel for regular updates (she reviews beauty too).
Another of our favourites is the beautiful Iris J (via YouTube). Her Elizabeth Taylor tutorial is just beautiful and looks amazing. She has so many tutorials for vintage hairstyles and how to achieve the look. Check her out.
How to: Tool kit
In order to create these styles, you’ll need a basic hair kit to get started. Here are some essential items you can’t live without.
You’ll always need a scarf to hold in your curlers. Accessorize have got fab ones
A doughnut is a must-have in any hair accessory bag. Great for faux victory rolls and chignons
Umberto Giannini’s Vintage hair kits comes with nearly all the accessories you need, and at only £12.99 it’s a bargain
Tresemme freeze hold hairspray is the perfect hairspray for holding your vintage styles
Hair clips are great for sectioning off the hair when styling
A good brush is key to any vintage look (see Lisa Freemont Street) brushing out is one of the most important elements of hairstyling
You cannot live without hair grips or bobby pins (need we say more?)
Hot sticks are an easy way to achieve a pin curl setting (it’s the closest we can get without the faff)
For a softer set we like Babyliss Pro 30 piece roller set for flowing waves
TIP We found it’s easier to find all of your clips and grips if you put them all together in a make up bag. Why not try creating your own hairstyling essentials bag.
