Vintage Curls-Suggestions Salon

A couple weeks ago I had the opportunity to participate in a hair tutorial by Elise at Suggestions Salon. I first went to Elise to get my hair done about a year ago. I didn't have a hair stylist out here yet and someone else suggested her to me. So glad I was told to go to Suggestions Salon. Elise does amazing and I've never been disappointed! 

She put this tutorial together to show how to get those sleek vintage curls you see in the movies! Don't forget to check out her blog and Suggestions Salon!!





  • Start with your hair freshly blowdryed and find a good side part. This wave is not as noticable and pretty when done with a middle part. 
  • Start with curling the section right above your ear. Use  a 1″ barrel curling iron and spray each strand with Wax blast by Redken. 1″ may seem small to you but it’s the best way to achieve the vintage look! 
  • For steps 3, 4 and 5, you want to do the exact same thing right one right next to the other. Wrap curl the hair forward toward your face. 
  • Next switch sides and repeat. Do one curl after the other in the exact same pattern. You’ll start to notice a sort of tight curl happening. 
  • Once the curls are in place, spray with a firm holding hairspray. I like to spray after so the hairspray sits on top of the hair. 
  • After everything cools, take the fine side of your comb and start combing through the curls. As you comb around the entire head, the curl pattern will start to join together. 
  • If you’ve curled all your sections the exact same way right next to each other, you’ll start to see a pretty  pattern form as you’re combing.
  • Give it one last spray of hairspray and enjoy your vintage waves!
