Make it retro (left version) Decide where you want your part. For a retro look, the part should be deep to one side. Section out the deep side of your bang area for later, and put everything else in a high ponytail. Curl the ends of the ponytail slightly and backcomb it a little at the base for more body. Brush softly through the curls for a more retro look. Shape your bangs into a swoop bang and either tuck them behind your ear or pin the hair beneath your ponytail.
