Hello my retro enthusiasts! Remember seeing those Hollywood bombshells in their pretty satin robes with their hair gracefully swept to one side with tons of gorgeous waves? I know I do! Well, I'm back to give you a more detailed tutorial on those oh so glamorous waves that women wore in the 30s. I was so excited after having that "ah ha!" moment with the flexi rods because it was the perfect solution to my desire for waves rather than coils. I can get coils anytime but waves, BIG waves, were another story. Not anymore! I'll be going to a birthday party for my sweetheart's grandmother tomorrow and I plan to wear this hairstyle with a very simple but very cute navy and white pleated dress.
See my tutorial below for the glamour shot look. (I would have worn something more siren-ish but it's reallllly cold here near the beach and I needed to dress accordingly! I think I get points for still getting in a skirt with brown tights and faux suede pumps lol) Maybe I'll play dress up over the weekend ;-D)
The Retro Natural is the first natural hair blog dedicated to styling naturally textured hair in retro styles. This blog was created as a means to establish a virtual playground, if you will, where women with natural or highly textured hair can obtain tips and tricks when attempting to style their hair in styles mainly from the 30s, 40s and 50s. There's also a little about style, food, vintage cars, and beauty tips. Many people know me from my YouTube channel, CurlyChronicles, which was created to show how I care for my natural hair. This is an extension of that :)
I also love the style of clothing worn by those who lived way before my time and enjoy "dressing to the nines" as they say!
