If you’re planning a vintage themed wedding, you need the perfect vintage inspired beauty regime and accessories to match! We spoke to Claire from Glam Squad to get her top tips on how to get a stunning vintage hairstyle, to go with the rest of your wedding day look...
“Vintage hairstyles are beautiful and there are a range of stunning styles to choose from so there’s sure to be a hairstyle to suit every bride on their wedding day. Vintage wedding hairstyles recreate a wonderfully romantic and nostalgic look.” Claire enthuses.
“The hair colour should look uniform for retro styles, with large curls. There are no streaks in retro style hairdos,” the stylist explains, “Curlers or curling tongs are requirements for creating this wavy style, as well as a curling lotion that gives shape and definition to the curls.”
“You need to make sure you pair your vintage hairstyle with the perfect vintage wedding dress and combine with stunning retro make-up.”
A bird cage veil, statement diamanté headpiece or cute faux flower hair accessories can really transform your vintage hairstyle too. Consider these if you don’t want a traditional veil, but still want some form of decoration added to your wedding hairstyle.
When it comes to perfecting your retro wedding make-up, look to old Hollywood glamour for inspiration. Eyes should be adorned with cats-eye winged eyeliner and strong lashes, and if you’re feeling brave, paired with a bright red lip, Marilyn Monroe style!
Once you’ve created the perfect vintage wedding look with your hair and make-up, consider some stunning gold toned wedding shoes to add to the retro glamour. The crystal embellished Lisbon shoe in gold from Benjamin Adams at Christiaan Michael is perfect for subtle but elegant wedding style.
