Gwen Stefani Vintage 1940 Hairdo Styles

gwen stefanis 1940s hairstyleGwen Stefani has perfected her look into a combination of rock star cool balanced by pin-up girl beauty. Gwen imitates the vintage stars of the 1940’s a great deal of the time, however she places her own unique, funky edge on the style.

Gwen, like many, uses her hair to show off her personality, and she loves nothing more than creating unique, interesting looks.

Her platinum locks are pure coiffed perfection whether she is on stage or out for dinner. Although she has sported some longer, and a few shorter hairstyles; Gwen typically wears her locks in a medium length hairstyle that is perfect for the experimentation she loves.

If you love the classic hairstyles from the 40’s and 50’s, reminiscent of those worn by such stars as Mae West, with an updated edge, Gwen’s hairstyle might just be for you.

Although Gwen’s hairstyles can be modified to suit most facial features and hair types, her style does work best on hair that has a natural wave.

To start with, book an appointment with your stylist. Request a layered, contoured style cut with short face framing layers, this will accent and soften any large facial features. Your stylist should make certain to add light layers throughout the ends as well to allow for body and movement.

Although styling hair like Gwen’s can take a little time and effort, the results are certainly worth it!
