I've been trying out vintage hairstyles for about two years, and now that my hair is long enough, I recently tried an elaborate 1940s style with victory rolls. I worked an event last week as a "cigarette/candy girl" and this time, we did NOT have the professional hair stylist. So it was my job to figure this out.
My friend has an awesome book (which I'm getting for my birthday) called Vintage Hairstyling: retro styles with step-by-step techniques. My goal was to mimic the style on the cover of the book at the bottom left side (the blonde chick). I recommend this book for anyone who's interested. My friend Carrie set her curls, and I basically did the same styling technique on both of us.
The event was at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta. Check out the auto exhibit while it's here; the cars are amazing!
