EASY RETRO STYLES

Old school hairstyles are widely loved and admired by all ages!

It’s time to travel back to the 60’s and indulge in the vintage styles that have become the foundation of hair styles used today!

 

Let’s take a trip down memory lane and remember all the glory of the 1960’s. True, it did have some pretty conflicted events including the assassination of John F. Kennedy and Rev. Martin Luther King. However, it also offered some of the best music, dance crazes, and let’s not forget that the first two men landed on the moon in 1969! Historians have described the 60’s as the decade that resulted in the most significant changes in American history. With that said, let’s pay tribute with these two retro-inspired hairstyles using clip-in hair extensions that are still just as stylish today as they were back then.

BUT FIRST…

PART 1: Let’s Start off by Applying Your Hair Extensions

Estelle’s clip-ins come in a set of 10 which includes four 3-clip pieces. These four will go in the back and they are super easy to clip in!

STEP 1:BACK CLIPS

Start your extensions in the back and work your way up by leaving out one to two inches of your natural hair, applying a clip-in piece and then bringing down more of your own hair.

* Repeat this process until you have used all four 3-clip pieces.

* Be sure to brush in between each layer for ultimate blending!

STEP 2:SIDE CLIPS

Now, for each side, your set will have one 2-clip piece and two 1-clip pieces. Using the same instructions first, leave out a small section of your own hair, apply the 2-clip piece, bring down more of your hair and then apply a one-clip piece.

STEP 3: LAST CLIP

For the remaining one-clip piece, you can either put it side by side with the other one-clip piece or a layer above it, whichever placement works best for you.

STEP 4: DO A FULL BRUSH ALL OVER!

STYLING

  • Your natural hair of course!
  • Your choice of Estelle’s Secret Clip-In Extensions already curled
  • Teasing Brush
  • Hair powder (Oasis Dust It Powder works great!)
  • Brush

LOOK #1: BUMPED UP LOOSE WAVES

STEP 1: THE PART

Start the style by parting your hair down the middle stopping in the center of your head.

STEP 2:FIRST TEASE LAYER

Taking the first inch of hair behind where you stopped your center part, flip it over your head out of the way.

STEP 3: APPLY POWDER

Apply a light layer of hair powder at the roots behind the first layer you just flipped.

* Hair powder works best for teasing and creating volume rather than hairspray which will make your hair appear flat.

STEP 4: TEASE IT

Pick up the layer you had flipped over your head and lightly tease the roots and the first couple of inches.

* Careful not to tease the hair too much, you still want it to look natural!

STEP 5:TWO MORE LAYERS

Tease about two more layers of hair.

STEP 6: PLACES EVERYONE!

Put all your hair back in place and use your brush to neaten everything up a bit and balance out your bump.

  • Your natural hair of course!
  • Your choice of Estelle’s Secret Clip-In Extensions already curled
  • Teasing Brush
  • Elastic Band
  • Hairspray
  • Hairpin

LOOK #2: MESSY LOW 60’S PONYTAIL

STEP 1:SIDE-PART

Create a deep side part and leave it to the side as a side bang.

STEP 2: TEASE MIDDLE SECTION

Tease about four to five layers of your hair from the middle section of your head, flipping each layer over your head to get it out of the way.

* You want to tease these layers really well for lots of bump and volume.

* Use your hair powder to help with effective teasing.

STEP 3: FLIP BACK

Flip back all your teased layers and bring the ends of your side bang around to make a low ponytail.

* Leave some tendrils from your side bang out, gives it a little extra.

STEP 4: LOW PONYTAIL

Secure the ponytail with an elastic band.

STEP 5: HIDE THE BAND

Hide the elastic band by wrapping a small section of hair from the ponytail around the elastic and securing it with a hairpin.

STEP 6:MESSY IS KEY

Finger tease the top and the ponytail to give it that messy yet voluminous look.

STEP 7: NEATEN

Brush the sides to neaten a bit and hit it all with some hairspray!
