Hairstyling how-to's


Would you like to make this 1946 hairdo? Well, look no further than under the cut to get the instructions. I do love this kind of instructions that show both how to set the pin-curls and how to brush the hair. It really shows how much different sets had an impact on the final hairstyle. I’m not sure how easy this is to do on yourself, but it’s still very interesting.






How to make variation from the same set from 1943.





I love this “Coronation-style”. I’m very tempted to buy a fake braid and try it out.



I like this variation on Simone de Beauvoir too.



All pictures except the last one are taken from Beauty Is A Thing of the Past. It’s an absolutely wonderful blog filled with vintage how-to’s on hair, makeup and manicures. I especially find the hairstyling posts a wonderful source of inspiration.

Gorgeous hair do's! Cannot go wrong with the milk maid braid look.

The "Coronation style" does look very contemporary too x

Oh, that is one of my favourite blogs!

Isis said...

Debi: I like it too! I often think that just the brushing is the thing we miss out on when we try to make restro hair. It is so alien to our modern way of treating hair. :)

Rowenna: Glad you like!

Hannah: Exactly! ;)

Rachael: Yes, it's such a classic look, really.

Jen: Yes, it's an amazing blog!
