Essential Vintage Hair Equipment

March 2, 2013

I have really long thick hair, mainly because I never have time these days to get it cut. I am however planning to get it cut much shorter this week. I’m thinking a little shorter than shoulder length, which means a lot of vintage styles that I’ve not been able to do for a while will now be possible. I’m planning to do a few hair posts in the future but firstly it’s always worth making sure you have all the equipment you need.

Here’s my list of vintage hair essentials and to make it easy they all come from Superdrug so you can pick them all up in one go, although most of these things can be bought in any chemist.

1. Kirby Grips 2. Pin Curl Clips 3. Sectioning Clips 4. Curling Tongs 5. Hair Dryer 6. Bristle Brush 7. Pintail Comb 8. Comb 9. Backcombing Brush (This is the only thing they didn’t sell in Superdrug, this one is from Amazon) 10. Rollers 11. Hairspray 12. Setting Lotion 13. Hairnet

      The last one I got was from Primark for about £1. It was pretty good. I’d like a Denman one though.

    This is a great list – I can see we are going to have a great pampering session!

    Good solid list my dear! Would you recommend Superdug’s setting lotion? I too have long and thick hair so have been looking for a good setting lotion for a cold overnight set.

      I have tried the lighter one, rather than the extra hold. It’s pretty good but nothing works that well when your hair is as long and thick as mine!

    Oh how I wish I could describe my (natural) hair in the same way (long and thick!). Great list of hair styling must-haves. You’ll find nearly all of these in my hairstyling arsenal, too.
