I’ve been working on growing out my hair for the last two years- I keep going back to the pixie cut! The middy cut is really ideal for vintage hairstyles- it’s nice and layered and shows off pin curl sets nicely! My middy is getting a bit long but I’m ok with it!
After spending so much time looking at Pinterest and other vintage gal’s Instagrams for hair inspo, I’ve been getting a bit more bolder with trying new styles. So a little look back at the last few months of the hair evolution…
I do a mix of a wet set and hot rollers, depending on how much time I have available. I have notoriously thick Italian hair that is *mostly* straight (and highly damaged).
My hair was still really short, so I was pinning it up in buns and french twists and adding a lot of flowers in along with scarves. I’ve also been growing out my Bettie bangs so I’ve been trying to get them to have a bit more oomph in the front.. I feel like it’s the only thing that works with them!
Here I was trying to get my hair in more of a Pageboy style, as it was sorta getting more in that middy style I was hoping for. Again- flowers and scarves!
These were from last month! My hair was finally a good length and I could pull off a Pageboy/Lana Turner-esque look. Definitely one of my favorites! When I do my sets, I usually only use a setting lotion and hairspray, but last month I picked up Suavacita pomade (after stalking all the best vintage hair gals on Instagram!) and I have to say- it’s so very fantastic! The smell is great and it has a nice hold. I am a convert for sure!
Both of these are from the last few weeks, and were hastily done (neither wet set fully set sadly)
So this is from last week and you can see just how long my hair has gotten.
And now I’m back to my beloved pink!
All my scarves are vintage and my flowers are from Shazam Vintage Hair Flowers.
