Halloween Inspiration: Retro Hair Tutorial Round-up 


Hey everyone! So if you've been following along with our life at all then you know that little baby girl is well past her due date and not showing any major signs of wanting to change that! I've had lots of signs that things are progressing normally, but overall it's all quiet on the home front:| That being said, costumes have pretty much taken a back seat for Martin and I this year, and so if I'm not sitting home with a newborn on Halloween, than I'll have to come up with something pretty last minute. That's where this round-up comes in! 

I know that for whatever reason, there are tons of ladies out there like me who haven't had the time to think of any type of costume for themselves yet this year, and also since I've been getting emails asking about retro ideas for Halloween, I decided to share them with all of you in the hopes of providing some inspiration for last minute costumes! All you need to complete a look with one of these styles is some bold lips, a great cat-eye, top it off with a retro style shirt and pencil skirt and you're good to go! For those of you who have been looking for an excuse to do your hair like this, Halloween is the perfect time:)

Thank you all again so much for your encouragement and support as we wait for baby girl. Your sweet comments, emails, and messages make me feel so happy and loved! I hope you have a great day, and thank you so much for reading! 

Modern Pin-up Week: #5 - Upright Pin Curls

Morning everyone! Its been a crazy week around here off line, and such a fun one for me on the blog! I know that these retro tutorials are more for special occasions and not every day like the styles I normally post, but perhaps that why being elaborate once in a while feels so refreshing? Here's today's:

 I almost feel like I should apologize in advance for how detailed this tutorial is going to be, because I've never posted one with so many steps before! I'm not sorry though, because this is probably my favorite retro tutorial of them all, and I'm so excited that I finally get to present it to you! 

There are a lot of different things I could have called this, because its the perfect style for a any retro/vintage party or Mad Men premier, or with Halloween coming up soon its certainly the the key element for that Marilyn Monroe or Elisabeth Taylor costume! My hair does touch my rump but its pretty thin so don't go thinking that if its shorter that you'll have a harder time, because obviously its a faux bob tutorial, and if you already have short hair, then you're that much closer to achieving it!

Supplies needed:
- boar bristled teasing comb
- straight comb
- 1" curling iron (perferably a clipless wand like this favorite of mine)
- lots of bobby pins or pin curl clips
- strong hold hairspray
Step #1: Start by separating your smooth brushed hair in half by drawing a line from ear to ear, and tying the back half up for later. choose a dramatic side part from the front section and tuck back the smaller side for later as well. Begin your pin curling by rolling the curls as flat as possible, and Away from your part. You're going to curl in 1 inch sections, going in little rows. Each 1" square (approximately) section you're going to wrap around your clipless curling iron (or around both the clip and the barrel of a regular curling iron) and hold for a few seconds before sliding your iron out leaving the rolled curl in your hands, and you're going to pinch the curl together and secure to your scalp with a single or double pronged clip, or with a bobby pin. and move on to the next!

Step #2: Once you've finished the front of your head with the curls pointing down either side start curling the back section by dividing it in half horizontally, then creating your pin curls from the top to the bottom, and pointing downwards. Once your whole head is covered in the pin curls, wait about 20 minutes more for the curls to cool and set completely before letting down the bottom level of curls. 

Step #3: Grouping them into sections of 3-4 curls, take your comb and combine them all together by combing from the roots to the ends a couple of times (pulling the hair taught), then slowly letting the curl settle back up into place (if you have shorter hair this is where you really have the advantage over ladies like me!). To begin shortening your locks, roll the bottom a bit to get rid of the ends and gather the whole curl in your palm, tuck it close to your head and pin in place at the height of your choosing. 

Step #4: once you have a whole level complete, spray well with some good hairspray, and move onto the next level of curls! Make sure you're combing the curls from the underside to pull the hair away from your face. When you get the the section of curls at your crown, tease a bit at the roots before combing out that section. 

Step #5: To finish off the whole look, pull the front corner curl (from the smaller side) taught and tuck it by your ear. Tease the last three top curls at the base and then comb them out together. To complete the bangs comb the very front straight up, pinch the crease, and then comb back down and curve the hair under itself. Pin well, spray, and you're all done!

After all that and I still wish that I could be more thorough in the instructions, so for sure ask if you have any questions! Remember that layers are only helpful for this style though not necessary, and I have side-swept bangs, so don't let that stop you either! Remember though that pin curls are pretty ambitious and a little more time consuming than most styles, so its not for the faint hearted:) but definitely for those mad men parties! Just don't start them on a day when you're short on time. In the end its really about having fun and just playing with your hair till its laying how you like it! 

Thank you all so much for the sweet comments and feedback by the way, and I look forward to posting more regular things again starting next week! Have a great day guys:)
