  • Bouffant volume hairstyle

If vintage hairstyles hold a certain appeal for you, but the idea of wearing a big bouffant or voluminous waves seems kind of intimidating, you're probably on the lookout for something more subtle. The good news is that, by clicking your way onto this page, you've found it! We've handpicked three gorgeous looks, all of which are totally wearable on a real-world level.

Contrary to popular belief, retro hair doesn't have to be super dramatic. It can, in fact, just be a certain aspect of your overall style - a little twist that helps to show off your vintage flair without overwhelming your look.

1. Retro wavy bob

Wavy bobs are trending like crazy right now, but this style puts a retro spin on the look with a little help from a deep side part and a medium-barrel curling iron. It's all about polishing up those waves for a Jackie Kennedy mets Karlie Kloss kind of result.

2. High volume

Want amp up the volume? One of the easiest ways is with a small bouffant hairstyle. We particularly love this style, which just screams 60s siren! The hair on the top of the head is backcombed to create extra body, while the lengths are teased into thick, easy waves for the ultimate screen siren finish. Move over, Brigitte...

3. Beehive pony

The beehive is an iconic look, but it doesn't have to be sky high. A barely there beehive is a great way to bring a touch of vintage class to your locks. Teamed with a low ponytail and side-swept bangs, it creates a look which is glamorous yet accessible.
