My favorite hair set to date...

Yesterday's blog posting on Beauty is a Thing of the Past featured four different hairstyles for short hair.  I was so excited to see this that I tried the "for the woman in uniform" hairstyle.  But instead of doing the pincurl set, I used small to medium sized rollers and slept in those overnight.  I used rollers instead because: 1) my hair is already wavy and pincurls make them CRAZY curly and 2) pincurls take forever to do and I found I could do this with just 10 foam rollers and 3 pincurls to catch the stray hairs.

I positioned the rollers where I saw the curls in the photo.  Once I got up this morning, I did not brush the curls out (again crazy curly hair goes everywhere!) instead I sculpted the curls with my hands and bobby pinned them all in place.

I am very happy with how it turned out:

Here's the back....still hard to control some of the hairs ...

I love how it looks with the DuBarry blouse I made:



  1. Oh, so pretty! I have the stray-hair problem too after a cold set. I use old-skool pomade from my local Afro beauty superstore and cheat with a curling iron.

    That blouse is so flattering. The clean lines and the feminine floral print balance each other out beautifully.

    I love this one too - you looked so amazing when you got home from work!

  3. Wow! This is such a cute look on you! I love it!

  4. I love it! You look great.

  5. You look so cute! It really suits you and gives you quite a cheeky look!

  6. That is so cute! I saw that post too, I love the "White Collar Girl" set. Fantastic job.

  7. You look so cute and retro. I like the asymmetricality.

  8. Oh, and I just got the pattern swap in the mail yesterday... it's PERFECT. Thank you!

    Yours should be arriving soon. I somehow sent it second class, like a total cheapskate.

  9. You look absolutely lovely. :)

  10. I have been looking for a 40's hairstyle I like and this is perfect, off to the hairdresser! I hope you don't mind me ripping off your awesome style, but I do live on the other side of the world. Thanks for the inspiration.


I read each and every comment--thank you so much!
