1960s-Inspired Wedding Hairstyles

August 20, 2014

Channel your inner Audrey Hepburn with one of these easy 1960’s inspired hairstyles which is classic and timeless for a wedding. The ’60s weren’t just confined to super-tight beehives; models such as Jean Shrimpton were one of the first to make big, bouncy curls a leading trend. Whether you have long, short or medium length hair – there is bound to be something which matches your style and aesthetic for your wedding day.

Audrey Hepburn

Known for her immaculate locks in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Hepburn quickly made the elegant up-do a smash hit representing 1960s style. Perfect for girls with both thick or thin hair, the look is classic and will stay in place the entire day (and night). Wrap your hair in rollers, aiming to produce as much lift as possible.

To nail this look, create volume on the crown of the head by backcombing before pinning the hair into high bun. Accessorise with crystal head bands for a signature Holly Golightly look, which is also wedding veil friendly.

Jean Shrimpton 

The bigger, the better! Across the pond, rising model Jean Shrimpton nailed another iconic hairstyle with her voluminous hair and curled ends. Create volume at the crown by blowdrying hair carefully, then applying a generous coat of hair spray for that extra hold.

Complete the look with The Shrimp’s signature pastel eyeshadow and pale pink lips.

Brigitte Bardot

An easy to achieve hairstyle which is similar to the look sported by Jean Shrimpton. Brigitte Bardot wore her hair mostly teased at the crown, with her long blonde locks often sitting in a natural looking curl. For a demure sex-kitten look, a low ponytail was tied at the back of the head with a ribbon. Bardot’s signature winged eyeliner helped to make this look sultry and seductive for any occasion.
