Retro Hollywood styles were very elegant, well-thought out, and took a lot of crafting to pull off. These styles included finger waves, spit curls, and a lot of curly styles for medium length hair. Finger waves were a full wave effect on the whole head that went side to side rather than around like wavy styles do now. Spit curls were one round curl flat to the side of a woman's face. A popular length for these styles was medium shoulder length. Vintage icons are Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn.
