While most people associate the 1920s with the bob, long hair was still very much in fashion in this roaring decade. Whether long or short, one of the defining styles of the time was finger waves. Super-sleek and polished, you can create this iconic look’s signature ‘s-shape’ waves with a flat iron, duckbill clips and a lot of hairsprays. Alternatively, save this Great Gatsby-inspired style for a special occasion and have a professional do it for you. Unlike short hair, the weight of long hair will mean that your finger waves will likely form barrel curls at the ends as they drop – but that only adds to the old school elegance of the style.
The 1950s was known for its ultra-feminine fashion and beauty trends, and hairstyles were less formal than in the ’40s. One ’50s-inspired look for long hair is the side-sweep with romantic waves. Part your hair on one side, then fold and pin a front section back to create volume and height. It is a particularly flattering technique if you want to add length to your face. Next, sweep back the side sections of your hair and secure them. Gently curl the rest of your hair, so it falls in soft yet bouncy waves. It is a classic and undeniably retro hairstyle with a clean-cut feel.
