Hair Tutorial – Day Seven – Hair Rat

February 7, 2011 by Jo

Thank goodness for Fleur! She has a fabulous website where she shares her vintage knowledge and provides lots of authentic vintage & retro fashion inspiration, plus styling tips, recipes, events and other fab things.

Here’s what she has to say about her video:

“My second ever vintage hair tutorial, this time it’s 40s style faux / bumper bangs! Not quite as big as Dita von Teese’s (or her icon Carmen Miranda) but better for those not quite as brave! It could also work for a 50s, Bettie Page style look and it’s a perfect pinup girl style. Look out for the comedy fumble at the beginning!”

I love that she calls bobby pins “curvy grips.” Oh those English, they are so charming!

I think I’ll be spending some time on this one. I’d really like to be a master of the rat tail (hehehe). I dig the look! More on this later!!
