The hair, the makeup (yes, yes the photos are black and white but you get the idea!) the style, the moxy. Ahhhh, I love flapper girls of the 1920s! Some were bad girls who partied too much and stayed out smoking and drinking way too late but we've all had some fun nights like those and besides, carpe diem, no? I get a kick (pun absolutely intended) out of the shenanigans of women in the 20s because it was a tough time for us and I really take delight in seeing women do what they want and for me, working your damn job, rebelliously cutting your hair and rolling down your stockings makes for a very rad lady! I kinda wanna dress up as one for Halloween but I'm torn on that and Josephine Baker. Hard decisions, I tell you!
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!
These photos do indeed belong to me unless stated otherwise. If you use any photos, link them back to this site or I'll kindly ask you to take them down. Thank you!
