Another year has flown by and I have not posted as much as I would like. In 2015 I will have more time, so be prepared for vintage goodness again en masse. But for now, here are some of my favourite festive images from the 1930s.
Hello 1930s fans! I came across another pin curl an finger waving article today. I hope this will help you recreate the look of 1930s curls and waves if you have been struggling.
Wonderful video and very authentic 30s waves. This shows exactly why most women in the day had their hair set in salons weekly, maintained it themselves at home but then went back for re-setting. There are a lot of tutorials about waves and ‘easy’ techniques, but they never get the ‘real’ look of the 30s correct. To really get an authentic wave it takes time and multiple steps, which is captured beautifully here.
I blogged about this here as well…the curling first and then setting the waves after using brushing out and then wet setting techniques.
Just a reminder for all my readers that are fans of Art Deco design and the fashion 1920s and 30s, I have several boards full of my favourite visual collections over at Pinterest that I add to on a daily basis. You are welcome to follow me there also. Enjoy 🙂
