Although most commonly seen in bridal hair, vintage hair combs are an easy way to add glitz and glam to your favorite go-to hairstyles. Like everything else retro, hair combs seem to be making a comeback in a major way, and do a fantastic job of bridging traditional with modern, which is what every fashionista strives to do when establishing and expressing her unique sense of style.
With summer quickly approaching, now is the perfect time to perfect a couple of cute ways to rock a vintage hair comb into your favorite styles.
Secure a half ponytail
Hate just securing a half pony with a hair tie? Try hiding the hair tie, or not using one all together, by using one or two vintage hair combs instead to hold the top half of your hair firmly in place. Make sure to spritz some firm hold hairspray to maintain your gorgeous style all day or night long.
Sexify an Updo
Although updos tend to be sexy by nature, adding a vintage comb to yours will ensure that you stand out in the crowd by adding glamour and sparkle to your look. Simply tuck a comb into a fold of your updo, or accent an understated portion of your hair to take vamp up your ‘do. Diane Kruger rocks vintage hair combs in her retro updo.
