Side parted ‘dos:
Found mostly in 1940’s films, side parted hairstyles remain incredibly popular today. Most of the brides who choose the side parted hairstyles usually model theirs on one of the actress from this era. Subtle differences like the bleaching and lightening up have to be done of course since these hairstyles are from black and white era and do need some tweaking to make them look a little more current in digital wedding photographs.
Flips and fringes:
1960’s ushered in the Janis – style big flips and the cute fringes that dangle on the forehead. These were neither too short nor too big styles back then and many women take this approach when it comes to their wedding day. While adopting these looks for your own retro wedding hairstyles for long hair or short hair, take note of the extreme flips that are apparent on the sides, lending a youthful look to the style for your big day.
The big 80’s look:
