To create such a styling, the women of that time had to torment their curls with their hair and, to add volume, use chignons. The current capabilities of the beauty industry make it possible to do this without much difficulty, a step-by-step description of how to make a hair style in the style of the 50s for long hair is sufficient.
You will need hairstyling to smooth curls, a pair of rubber bands, hairpins, paint, and, if you want to make a bunch bulkier, a hairdresser that is tuned to the hair.
Washed and dried hair should be carefully combed and collected head-down in a ponytail on the crown to create the cleanest possible contour. First make the hair in the tail and give extra volume with a roll. Spread the bundle and fasten it with the help of pins.
Hairstyles of the 50s for long hair are characterized by the softness and elegance of the styling, so that all strands, sides and backs of the head should be carefully hidden in the styling as well as the ends of the strands of the bundle itself. Styling styling tinted and accented wide velvet ribbons or tiaras for the evening option, worn at the base of the beam.

How to make a hairstyle in the style of the 50s for short hair
Hairstyles of the 50s for short hair are also characterized by the graphic quality and clarity of the pattern, the most popular, as well as today in this decade, the hairstyles of the cut were oblong “square”. Laying such haircuts to keep the style of “retro” may be different. A very elegant pattern gives the classic “cold wave” styling, which is not the first time in the trends – it first appeared in the 20s of the last century.
To create such a styling, the entire hair volume must be rolled up into large curlers, which move from the face to the back of the head and insert the curls. After removing the curlers, brush your hair carefully to create smooth, flowing soft waves. Particular attention is paid to the side strands, if necessary, they should also be rolled up in ordinary curls. Such a styling can also be complemented by a wide, beautiful tire that removes the hair from the forehead and forms a small, clean roll over the forehead. Open faces that emphasize the oval contours of the installation – these are also signs of the style of this era.

The second way to make a 1950s-style hairstyle, such as short and short hair, requires the creation of extra volume at the top of the head and clear, graphic curls at the ends of the strands. To make volume, it is not necessary to make bouffige, as the women of the fifties have done. Apply some styling fixation to washed and slightly dried hair and spread from root to tip. The volume can be created with the aid of large curlers or a hair drier with a brush nozzle – it is also important to remove the hair from the face as in the first styling variant to form a volume at the crown or at the level of the cheekbones. The choice of such a pattern depends only on the type of your face and where you want to set accents. Such a styling is also perfectly complemented by a band, a scarf or a wide hair band. The ends of the strands must be gently pushed out with curlers or tweezers, creating a smooth wave that accentuates the pattern of the “square” haircut.
The appearance of pony was a real sensation in the women’s fashion of that time, until then, only little girls wore it, and in the fifties they were worn by the most stylish women of all ages. The pony in the spirit of the 50s – rather short, thick and strictly linear cut – was still far from asymmetrical and complex variants.
The emergence of a new trend, as is often the case, has contributed to the cinema, or rather to the image of movie star Audrey Hepburn. In the film “Roman Holiday”, in which she played the role of the Princess, Audrey cut her long, beautiful hair directly into the frame. A short “square” with a neat pony fits surprisingly exactly to the image of a modern princess. Having such a haircut in the sense of “retro” also has its own characteristics, but making such 1950s hairstyles with your own hands is child’s play.
A straight bang in this styling is combined with curls that are tucked into neat curls at the back of the head. You can roll them up in some way and get a clear, correct curl shape. Carefully comb the curls and fasten them directly under the ears with invisible hairpins.
