There’s nothing more classic than a blonde girl with rolls in her hair. It’s one of the most recognizable pin-up hairstyles for women with long hair. It has two spirals hanging behind the ears and on top there are two large rolls that perfectly frame the face and add tons of volume and style.

Another ultra classic style is showcased here, where the hair is rolled on top and pulled back into an updo. It’s a fun summer look that can also work for every day. The reddish tone of the hair goes well with bright red lips and a bold eyeliner look, and it’s a great hair color generally for retro looks.


3. Single Roll Bow and Loose Curls

If you want a more casual hairstyle, then hairstyles like this will work wonderfully. There’s only one roll in the hair, and it’s on one side where the bangs are. The roll ends just before a headband with a large bow decorates the hair. The rest of the hair falls long and loose with curled ends.


4. Shiny Large Waves

Now we’re deviating slightly from the classic. This is a modernized retro look where the hair is very sleek and shiny and focused on one side of the head. It forms large fingerstyle waves, only they’re larger than typical. There’s a nice updo at the back.


5. Loose Rolls and Long Waves

Here’s another modernized style where the rolls on top of the head are looser and the typical curls you find in these looks are actually waves instead. The hair is decorated delightfully with a classic polka dot bow that matches a bold red lip. Bows are very common in pin up hairstyles for long hair.


6. Center Roll and Low Curls

8. Volumized Top and Elegant Curls
