SS18: Travel back in time with retro hairstyles

Whether its 60s volume or 90s bantu knots, hair trends of yesteryear are suddenly back in fashion. Check out some of our favourite retro inspired looks to recently hit the international catwalks.

The classic victory roll

Whether you're in London or Sao Paulo, the iconic, post-war 'victory roll' hair-do is enjoying a renaissance. Worn either 'tight' or more relaxed, these rolls ooze sophistication while the loose lengths balance the look, giving it a rock and roll edge. UseL'Oréal Professionnel's Infinium hairspray to give the style long lasting hold.

Roll up, roll up!

Combine the chic chignon of yesteryear with a glamourous wave for the ultimate retro look. Blanca Padilla was spotted during Milan Fashion Week hitting the streets with this sensational 'model off-duty' hair 'do. All you need? A little patience, a few bobby pins and L'Oréal Professionnel Techni ART Pli, a back-stage favourite. The thermo-modelling spray adds shape fix, grip and hold giving an instant root-lift effect too so adding glorious volume where it's needed.

A hair movement: the wave

At Etro in Milan it was all about the vintage inspired wavy updo. At the back, this style featured a smooth, vertical tucked in chignon to smooth down any flyaways. Meanwhile at the front, the vintage touch is added care of some oversized sculpted waves. To create the look, give your hair a quick curl with an iron and set with a strong hold hairspray. It's as easy as that!

Turn back time with these effortless looks and inject a bit of retro glamour into your modern look!
