When it comes to fancier occasions, up’dos can be perfect options! But if you’re looking for something that’s extremely elegant and different than the rest, consider Rihanna’s funky scarf-tied Updo, inspired by “Rosie The Riveter” — the rockabilly.

2. Beehive:

Created by Illinois stylist Margaret Vinci Heldt in 1960, over the years the beehive has seen a huge resurgence and is a symbol of retro kitsch today. Actress Penelope Cruz looks smoking hot with her locks done up in a big beehive hairstyle. We love how Cruz’s left bangs fall loose to frame her face, creating a softer and less harsh outline of her face. Use anti-frizz and pin your hair tightly to prevent flyaway hairs!

3. Hippie Hair:

They are messy, frizzy, totally laid back, but they are chic, fun, and we absolutely love them. The hairstyle was first seen on Joan Baez with centre-parted, long, natural hairstyle – almost half a decade before it caught on. One can simply wear a strip of lace or satin to achieve this look.

4. Ponytail:

To achieve this gorgeous style, start by backcombing your hair across your crown. Then, pull back the front bang area and pin it in place with pins. Finish the look with a strong-hold hairspray.

7. Poker Straight Hair:

It really doesn’t get any simpler, does it? Inspired by Singer Cher’s 60s long hairstyle, Ashley Greene looks stunning with her poker-straight hair. The long locks work well with thin, straight hair, although you can use hair straightening tools to tame your hair if it’s wavy or curly.
