5 Ways to Make Retro Curls Look Totally Modern

Sep 8 2014 - 7:00am

Who hasn't watched an old movie and lusted after the heroine's perfect curls thrown just so over one shoulder? Apparently no one! From Emma Stone [1] to Kate Bosworth [2] to Sandra Bullock [3], there has been a red carpet run on the classic one-shoulder 'do, and we're taking our Fall party (and bridal!) inspiration from the styles.

Kate Bosworth

Kate's sculpted curls got a modern jolt from her matte orange lipstick.

Rita Ora

Or is that Rita Hayworth? Ora went for classic curls with plenty of volume paired with defined red lips.

Emma Stone

Emma's careful curls started above the ears for a more '40s twist on the style, but her natural face and fuchsia lips were right on trend for this Spring.

Sandra Bullock

Bullock went for a sidesweep of tumbling curls, but her smoky eye and nude lip were an unexpected pairing with the retro style.

Ashley Greene

The longer the curls, the looser they get — Greene went for major length and soft rose lips.
