Today’s asymmetric cuts, ombré fades, and feather extensions complement current trends, but when it comes to special occasions like graduation, there’s something irresistible about retro hairstyles, like the ones in these vintage school photos. Take a gander for inspiration when planning out your diploma day do, and, if you’re brave enough to rock one, share it with us by uploading your photo to the ModCloth Style Exchange! We’d love to see how you’ve merged mod hair with a modern day event.

Bouffants, flips, and side-swept bangs are all notably fabulous hairdo features, but when you combine all three like these gals, you’ll officially have achieved hair style-smorgasbord status.

Which hairdo is your favorite?

    GREAT pics! I adore retro bouffants, bobs, & flips, and I still wear them for fun every now and then! As long as you have a good teasing comb and some heavy duty hair spray, you’ll be in business!

    I love retro hairstyles! Thanks for the inspirational pictures and reminder 🙂 Curiosity got the better of me, and I looked through Virgos (adorable pageboy cut!) flickr and found a picture featuring a fab hairdo! That’s probably my favorite style from that era 🙂
