Ever wish you were around during the 1960s?

You’re not alone!

With the popularity of “Mad Men,” retro swimsuits, and the Beach Boys reunion tour, the ’60s are back in a big way. But it’s not the music or the fashion or the “free love” that we admire the most from this decade. Nope. We’re obsessed with ’60s hair.

Just what makes these retro hairstyles so appealing? Try height. Hair was fashionable in the ‘up’ variety, but the styles also used soft and frothy textures to create these looks.

Pulled-Back Bouffant

This ’60s style plays on the classic bouffant look, but with a twist.

To get this look, backcomb the front and back sections of your hair across your crown.

Then, pull back the front bang area and pin it in place with bobby pins. Finish with a flexible-hold hairspray.

Modified Beehive

Add some ’60s-style volume to your bun with a beehive look.

While the finished style looks sleek, that top layer of hair is actually covering a whole lot of backcombing.

To get this look, backcomb at the crown of your head and work down and around until you’re an inch or two from your hairline. Then, take your hair and pin in a low twist or knot. Finally, comb and smooth the top layer of your hair to cover the teased hair.

Pixie Perfect

Mia Farrow and Twiggy were just two stars that popularized this chic pixie cut during the 1960s — but that wasn’t the only reason women loved this look.

The ease and glamour of this hairstyle made this a first-choice cut among working women. It was quick, stylish, and modern.

Go Long

Not all hair during the ’60s was teased beyond belief. During the late ’60s, long, shaggy styles became popular on both girls and guys. This soon became the trademark style of the hippie movement.

To get this look, ask your stylist for ‘invisible’ long layers and square shapes to preserve the volume and fullness around your face.

And if you have very fine hair, skip the bangs and opt for a layer of hair that you can sweep across your forehead. A purposeful fringe is key.

Flip Out

Want a ’60s-inspired style for shoulder-length hair?

Look no further than Jackie Kennedy.

This look is reminiscent of the former First Lady, especially in how the ends flip up. To get this look, apply firm-hold foam to the bottom of your hair, then curling the ends with a 1 1/2-inch curling iron — just rolling the hair a few inches up.

Once curled, ease the flip by separating the ends lightly with your fingers.

Mod Style

If you’re looking for attitude, this is the perfect hairstyle for you. Inspired by the mod movement, this look is edgy and chic at the same time.

You’ll need to start with an angled bob (a la Victoria Beckham) with a dramatic side part.

Let wet hair air dry to allow your natural texture shine through. Then, backcomb at the back of your head for that extra volume. And to finish the look, sweep the front of your hair across your forehead, and pin or tuck your hair above or behind your ear.

Sleek Side Bun

Get in touch with your inner Diana Ross with this sleek side bun. In order to prep the hair, straighten the hair with a ceramic styler.

Once you’ve pinned your side bun in place, make sure to keep flyaway’s under control with this quick tip: Spray a humidity resistant hairspray on the bristles of a toothbrush to brush down the hairs around your face and avoid frizz.

Bardot Half-Updo

French model and movie star Brigitte Bardot created some of the most iconic looks of the 1960s. This half-updo is a perfect example of her style, and luckily for us, it’s one of the easiest DIY retro looks.

To copy this style, simply backcomb your hair at the back of your crown. Take a piece of hair from the front-to-middle of your crown and brush it over the backcombed section. Pin that piece to the back of your head, pushing up the pin depending on how much volume you like.

Lengthy Curls

This style picks up on the voluminous body made famous in the 1960s, but gives it a modern twist with the long curls.

To get this look, use hot rollers as a way to double up on body and wave.

Once your hair is curled, tease your hair from the crown of your head to the back. Spritz hairspray around your hairline and smooth hair back over the teased sections. Keep the style in place with a headband.
