Retro Hairstyles for Today's Modern Woman

(Since we just featured hairstyles of young Hollywood’s up-and-coming It girls, it just seems fair to look back at hairstyles of classic style icons of the past.)

On January 11, 1935, Amelia Earhart became the first person (man or woman) to fly solo across the Pacific. In honor of her pioneering spirit, let’s look at some hairstyles from the past that are still chic and appropriate for today’s modern woman.

There is a reason why Audrey Hepburn is such a fashion icon – her timeless beauty and her classic sense of style are as pretty and relevant today as they were 50 years ago. Copy her classic high pony for an elegant, understated look. Accent it with the Bridget hair bow, a 1 ¾” grosgrain boutique style baby bow on a pinch clip. The Bridget is available in cream, lavender, white, pink, shocking pink, and red.

Amelia Earhart’s short, spunky, fuss-free hairdo is a boon for busy, working moms (and female aviators!) everywhere. Use the Retro Dots Clipettes Prints to keep short pieces of hair off your face. The Retro Dots Clipette is a brown ribbon with pink and green retro dots.

Brigitte Bardot’s long, messy bedhead is still as fashionable today as it was 50 years ago. Pin back stray tresses with the Devyn, a color block grosgrain bow. This 3 ½” sequin/silk organza bow on a pinch clip is available in bubblegum and light blue.   

Sophia Loren’s ‘do might seem a bit dated, but a little less teasing at the crown would make this a more modern 'do. Instead of an animal print fur coat, highlight your look with the Tatum bow. The Tatum is a 2” grosgrain animal print baby bow with tails. It is available in black zebra, light brown giraffe and dark brown leopard.

Hair Clips that Go with The Color of 2012

Fashion watchers and hair accessories aficionados, take note:

Color experts at the Pantone Color Institute have selected Tangerine Tango as the color of 2012. Leatrice Eisenman, executive director, talks about their chosen color:
“Sophisticated but at the same time dramatic and seductive, Tangerine Tango is an orange with a lot of depth to it. Reminiscent of the radiant shadings of a sunset, Tangerine Tango marries the vivaciousness and adrenaline rush of red with the friendliness and warmth of yellow, to form a high-visibility, magnetic hue that emanates heat and energy.”
Expect this shade to show up in everything from runway fashions and accessories (including hair clips!) to home furnishings and even makeup and athletic gear.

Wearing such a bold shade means using toned-down accessories, such as the Dakota, shown below in light blue. This 1 ¼” organza sequin Baby Bow on a pinch clip or mini pinch clip is the perfect laid-back companion to tangerine tango’s in-your-face brightness. The Dakota is also available in black, cream, forest green, lavender, maroon, navy, orange, red, shocking pink and white.

Neutral colors also go well with this year’s shade. A hair bow like the Kellie, a 2 ½ boutique-style grosgrain bow, shown below in cream, is a chic counterpoint to a tangerine tango ensemble.

Don’t want to go all out with a tangerine outfit? Then inject just small shot of this color into your wardrobe. The Sydney, a 2”cross knot grosgrain baby bow on a pinch clip, is the perfect solution. It comes in orange, and can be worn to brighten up any neutral-colored outfit. The Sydney is also available in citron, dark brown, French blue and maroon.
