Vintage Hair Poodle Tutorial


After months thinking about filming hair tutorials, I’ve finally created a Youtube channel for all you retro enthusiasts! And I’m glad to show you my first vintage hair tutorial: How to create a Poodle updo! I first filmed the video in Spanish, but I’ll try to upload them in English too. Here it is!

The poodle hairstyle has become a lifesaver, especially in summer. It’s really easy to create (at first I never thought I would be able to succeed but here I am!), and is perfect to style with hair accessories such as hair flowers. 

This year I’ve decided to experiment more with my hair, and that’s what I’ve been doing. Master the Poodle! Okay, I’m not an expert but I think the result is pretty good, and after getting several requests from fellow pin ups and vintage enthusiasts, I decided it was time to give them what they wanted. 


Pin up hairstyles can be tricky, but the key to success is practice. The Poodle was a popular hairstyle in the 1940s and early 1950s, and became Lucille Ball’s signature hairstyle. 

We all start somewhere, so don’t panic if you don’t succeed in creating a hairstyle at first. When I compare my hair to 2 years ago, things have changed. Never give up! And practice, practice, practice. 

I just cut my hair to a shorter do, so no more Poodles until November. For reference, the longer the hair, the better for updos.

Hope you liked today’s post! Don’t forget to subscribe to my Youtube channel to be the first to know about my new Youtube tutorials. I don’t have anything planned yet, but I’m sure it will be fun. Expect lots of hairspray and vintage hair tips! 

Lots of love, xx
