music: 'My Baby Just Cares For Me' - Nina Simone

Obvs my passion for the 1920s-1940s is well known, and recently I've been trying to get the 'look' right, and even phoned round all the hairdressers within a 40 mile radius trying to find some that did fingerwaving. Most had no clue what I meant, some suggested bringing pictures in, and one or two (phew!) were pretty confident that they could do it.
I ended up trying one called Gatsby's (!), the hairdressers were great and really enthusiastic but we went for a looser, more modern interpretation and my hair didn't really take to it :( So I've been pondering other options.

Fast forward to today when I went shopping with Sarah. Much fun ensued, we bought shoes (three pairs for her, only one for me! (though they are sequined...and flats!!)), clothes and glow sticks (<3), and ended up with a bizarrely spicy lunch at TGIF's (we both have v low spice tolerances apparently, lol)

I also bought...

A very cheap fancy dress wig, but a wig none the less. Larks were had trying it on in loos and Sarah's car....


I somehow managed to start off with it on backwards, needless to say those photos will never see the light of day!

This evening I decided to go the whole hog and do it properly, so.a metric tonne of kohl and 'Ruby Woo' later......



Then I decided to have a go with the scary triple barreled curler I got for Christmas....




Although, considering I stabbed myself in the face with a pair of scissors trimming the fringe on the wig, the curlers turned out to be considerably less painful :D

Tadaaaaaaaa

 

It worked! Sort of. Almost. - ish.....

Ty, I'm sure there will be more as I (hopefully) get better at vintage styling

Look at you! You have a face! I'd forgot you had a face. *grins*

Your hair looks lovely, it really does. I like the shirt too.
