Hi, I'm Michelle Simone, and I'm a Hairstylist. Today, I'm going to show you a fun, easy '50s, '60s hairstyle. So, what we're going to do is start by taking a section from the front of your hair, about this big, couple of inches across into a nice little square piece and just separate it from the rest. I'm going to do that just by pin, pinning it off, get it out of the way. And then with the rest of the hair, you're going to pull it back into a high ponytail. So, grab a comb, you're going to want this to be nice and smooth and just pull all of your hair back into a quick little pony and then just tie it off. Once your ponytail is ready, take out your front section and for this, we're going to curl this piece backwards towards the ponytail. Pull the hair forward and then open your curling iron and wrap the hair around. And then you're going to twist and pull, twist and pull. This is going to help guide the shape of the pompadour roll at the front. Hold it for a couple of seconds and then let it out. Pull your curling iron out to the side so that you maintain the shape. Once you've taken the curling iron out, you're going to take the hair that your curled and just roll it under, around two fingers just like that. Roll the hair around and pin it down right at the base of your, of the roll, hiding the pins underneath. Once you've done that, I like to go ahead and curl the ponytail just to add a little extra and flip the bottom out. So, I'm rolling up towards her head, that's going to give you that nice S-shape and then just pin it in place. Once you've done that, you're going to take any bandana that you have. I've folded mine into a triangle and then you're just going to roll it up to create a headband. Once you've done that, take the middle, place it right at the bottom of your head, pull all those hairs up into the pony and then, you're going to tie it right behind the roll that you created. Nice and tight. Do a little double knot or bow depending on how long your bandana is. And there you go. That was a quick and easy '50s, '60s hairstyle.
