1940s Feather Bangs

Here is a follow along with me video for an authentic 1940s style! This particular one is a photo I found on the internet called Feather Bangs and was by Betty Reeder of Betty Redder Salon of Beauty in Pasadena, Cal.

It wasn't until the final video was being uploaded that I realized I made a bit of a mistake. Would that have made the outcome different? Possibly. I guess we'll never know... Ahahahaha!

Sleepy Time Gal

Last year I helped a friend of mine, Wayne Minert, by modeling for a project he had in mind and because of that I was able to get a few photos from the shoot. I am still waiting for his project to be finished up - so that will have to wait for a future post.

I am wearing a vintage tieback nightgown I found thrifting in Las Vegas. It was from a store I don't recall the name of as I had only been to it the one time I found this nightgown. I have my hair in a smattering of rolls pinned up and covered in a vintage hair scarf that was gifted to me by a friend. The hair scarf is a gradient blue into white with little pearls sewn on.

It was fun getting back to some good 'ol fashioned pinup photos. I hope I can do more soon!

Until then... Enjoy your Sleepy Time Gal!

Faux Baby Bangs a'la Lemon Sorbet

Originally I wanted to take advantage of the quarantine and grow out my hair an allow it to heal since it has been in the worst condition it has ever been in, but I couldn't handle it any longer and finally bleached my roots and for the first time during the lockdown, 30 days in, I styled my hair.

I was hoping to achieve a forward roll pompadour such as the examples below, but instead I got some off centered faux baby bangs that I wasn't completely hating on!
