Following on from my last post, with regards to my absolute hair-setting failure, I decided to attempt the ol’ victory rolls. ‘This’, I thought, ‘must be achievable at least. It doesn’t look that hard – Fleur of ‘Diary of a Vintage Girl’ fame looks like she could do it with one hand tied behind her back’. Unfortunately, I am not she, and couldn’t manage to cobble it together with two hands and a pile of hairgrips, let alone one. I stumbled across a Youtube channel the other day, (I didn’t bookmark or subscribe to it, and am absolutely kicking myself now) which showed that if you twist your hair a certain way, it looks remarkably like a victory roll. I tried it, and voila! A pretty convincing vintage-style hairdo. It’s just a shame it’s ruined by the mane of rats tails that I call my hair – I honestly don’t think I’ve ever been more excited about a haircut in my life!
Today, rather than wrestling with my unmanageable bonce, I decided to venture into the world of headscarves. The weather here has been positively sticky, which called for my new vintage spotty tapered trousers (yet again, bought for the vintage fair, now kept in my wardrobe…) which are deliciously light and airy, and a loose cheesecloth style vintage blouse. I was comfortable all day long, but still dressed appropriately when the rain appeared and the thunder pealed….
PS – I’m in love with Picnik and its Cross Process feature!
