New video tutorial! 1940s working girl hair

The second of my vintage video tutorials for Superdrug Look at Me went live yesterday. It's for  a simple 1940s style semi-updo with a back roll and a scarf to finish it off.

  1. I came across your video on the Superdrug website earlier, really good idea to use the rat at the back - struggle getting my hair to stay in a roll by itself, so will try this as an alternative.

    Thanks!

    P.S. How's the fitness coming along?

  3. I'm doing good at vintage makeup (with some lip colour variations), doing so-so on daily vintage outfits.. and desperately trying to do something (anything!) with my short hair.. it seams everyone in the 1940s had long hair with "V-rolls".. any idea where I can find a way to vintage-up short hair? (oh.. and it's red.. don't ask).
    By the way: been reading your blog for ages.. it's pretty much the strongest inspiration.

  4. thank you very much, this is really helpful!!!!!
    have the same problem with headscarfs slipping off - when i want to tie a turban then i make 2 knots of hair in the neck behind the ears. this works pretty good :-)

  5. This is great! I actually think I can give this a go. I'll let you know. And, for the record, you may not have thought it looked tidy, but I think it looked really nice. :)

    P.S. I showed your eyebrow tutorial to my aesthetician yesterday at my wax appointment and we finally got the righ arch to my brows for a 40s look. Thank you!

  6. Excellent, that should keep your hair out of the lathe and fits so much better under a welding helmet and looks great at the same time.
    War time fashion was very inventive, we can learn a lot from such looks, it was also a damn site cheaper than a set and colour and so much cheaper.

  7. Thanks for this, you made it really clear. Am going to have a go. Love how your cat's tail keeps appearing in shot. They are so into everything!

  8. Ah, you make rolling the hair up look so easy! Maybe mine is more slippery... I have worn this hairdo a few times on the am-dram stage, because it looks nicely, generically, 'old-fashioned' (obviously not when worn with your lovely '40s pincul and scarf!) but is more interesting than a bun. In fact, the first time I did it was when I was playing a queen and needed something solid for my heavy crown to sit on!
