My First Attempt At Vintage Style Hair

For ages, eons, a lifetime, since the age of dinosaurs, I’ve been desperate to try out a retro look with my hair. Well, maybe not that long, but it’s been about two years. There were just two thing holding me back:

  • My fringe was too short. I have seen lots of women with the vintage look and a short fringe, but I really wanted to get that lovely roll that some vintage style hair has.
  • Up until about six months ago I had a frozen shoulder. Which was an absolute nightmare! I couldn’t get my left arm any higher than shoulder height, so as for reaching the top of my head – forget it!

But I am now loose of shoulder and long of fringe, so I gave it a go.

I’m not sure I completely ‘nailed it’ but I think it’s definitely a hair avenue I’ll explore further. One of my friends did keep calling me Bessie during lunch though (as of Aunt Bessie fame). The cheek!

I did learn two things from my little flirt with vintage style hair:

1) Taking photographs of yourself that don’t look like obvious ‘selfies’ is bloody hard! Andrew is away on business, hence the selfie style photoshoot today.

2) I make damn good Yorkshire Puddings 😉

What do you lot think? Could do better, or get whisking the batter?

    I’m still learning these hairstyles myself, they’re surprisingly very technical! It looks very elegant on you xx
