I'm puzzled. 'hmmmmm... n-nothing.(?)' Regular customer in front of me. His pressed lips and shaking head expose disapproval of the landscape before him. 'Yesterday you looked so beautiful!!! what did you do!?!' And he's leaving truly concerned still shaking his head. What did I do? or what didn't I do. I did not make my hair. Just put it flat together with some slight wave which was suppose to give some vintage 'something'. As I really like louis vuitton hairstyle in this particular show, this gentleman decided... it's a shit.
Seamed stockings, high waist, dress length, hats, gloves, petticoats, eyeliner, red lips... well, no.
I haven't been born with those extra features so I do pin curls.
It takes practise but in the end it takes me 10-15min with eyes shut, going to sleep and brushing in the morning, kilo of hairspray and done.
In my second- day- hair (I wash it every second day) I put some conditioner before brushing out the hairspray that tends to break my hair and still make pin curls but much bigger and rather carelessly since I discovered it tends to style much easier and effect is more smooth.
Hairspray is essential. Things I like are :
CHI Royal Treatment Hairspray, unavailable easily in Europe...
Fudge membrane gas Amazing !!! available everywhere online in UK and in hair salons.
Both with a nice scent and great hold.
But I do load tones of conditioner before brushing hair after the long day to prevent breaking it.
Haircut is a great help! This what I took to my hairdresser who has no knowledge of pin curls:
