Vintage hairstyles for naturally curly hair


Sometimes I get questions about what to do with naturally very curly hair. Some people get it chemically relaxed so it's easier to traditionally work with, some use water to un-curl and re-curl in the desired way, and some just work with what they have. 

These girls are great examples of not needing to change the texture of your hair for a vintage style. Angelique Noir has a few video tutorials on how to achieve a 1940s look. Also check out The Retro Natural for lots of inspiration and tutorials, she covers a range of deco to mid century styles.

If anyone else knows of or has a blog, video, etc. specifically for working with naturally curly hair, please send it my way! I'll post it here for everyone to reference.

Thank you for thinking of us ladies! I have always wondered how to set my natural hair in a vintage way to match my dress.

i suppose this must be 'grass is greener' syndrome! I've never been able to style my poker-straight hair and have always been envious of naturally-curly haired girls, assuming it must be easier!

This is awesome. Though I dress mostly 50s, my naturally hair resembles a 20s-30s cut as I grow it out. I'd like to learn how to get a little volume on the crown without things getting crazy and perhaps try a poodle-inspired updo. Definitely checking out the site
