A Simple Retro Protective Style

I love retro hairstyles and fashion, especially from the 40’s and 50’s. Although many sisters straightened their hair back then, there were plenty who rocked cute and sexy styles with their natural hair. This one is so easy, I swear I wore my hair like this almost every day last summer!


High Bun with Sideswept Bangs



Step 1- Separate a handful of hair at the front to use as your “bangs”








Step 2- Pull hair back into a high ponytail with either a covered elastic, a strip of stocking or a banana clip for thick hair.















Step 3- Tuck the ponytail under into a bun and secure ends with a comb and/or bobby pins


















Step 4- Add a bit of leave-in conditioner to your bangs to loosen the curl up a bit, then sweep to the side and pin in place right above the ear.





















Step 5- Fold a large (16” x16”) scarf in half and wrap around the hair from bottom to top, making a knot or bow at the top. Pin in place.Done!
As an alternate, you can tuck the bangs under in the front by rolling them around a large sponge roller and pinning them in place.
