Vintage hairstyles are eternally popular for weddings, but a too-literal interpretation can leave a bride with a serious case of helmet head. So what’s the key to borrowing from the past without looking stuck in it? Texture and movement. “The perfectly coiffed updo is outdated,” says Dani Weidner, a stylist at Robert James Color in San Francisco. “Imperfect is best.”

To balance contemporary trends with a retro influence, Weidner designed this ’20s-inspired updo. A defined curl and thick roll give a nod to the past, but the overall look feels fresh and current. It’s an ideal style for brides — and it’s one you can do at home. To get the look, read on for pictures and step-by-step instructions.
