This saturday it was time to put my pin curls, red lipstick and hair nets aside, and make room for bigger hair and bigger lashes! I was going with some friends to an event were the dresscode was 1960. I was a little reluctant at first, but then I realised that this would be an excellent opportunity to try out one of the 60's inspired hairstyles in Lauren Rennells Vintage hairstyling book. The one I chose was titled The Receptionist. I didn't do exactly like the book said, I kind of just made it work for me. But I did use the victory roll-method to achieve a good base for building the volume as I went on. The back of the hair is not nearly as neat as it should be, but I say good enough! This is my first time doing a hairstyle from this specific era and I've never teased my hair as much as I did for this style. All I can say is, people in the 60's must have had really damaged (yet awesome) hair!
(By the way: Looking down to emphasize the 60's "bump")
