Bunny's 1950's Hair Trial


You will not believe this but I won tickets to see Frankenstein and The Bride of Frankenstein from an amazing blog called Classic Forever! TCM has been having a series of films out once a month to be seen in a theater. That is how I saw The Birds last month and I really wanted to see this one but didn't think it would happen for me and then I won! Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!

So today that is where I will be heading! I decided to also take this opportunity to dress up especially since I really haven't had a chance to since June. I know that's a long time, right? My friend Sean from The Fictionista kindly lent me one of her amazing dresses for a photo shoot I was going to have this month. Well, things got incredibly busy and there seemed to be no time to have my shoot so I thought I wouldn't have a chance to wear it especially since she went through all the trouble to send it to me. I figured, why not wear it today!!?? I'd like to say a HUGE thank you to Sean for being so kind to me and being such a sweet friend!

To add to my special classic cinema event and dressing up, I realized I need to practice a hairstyle because I have been a very bad Bunny and have not practiced since June...again...I know! I found this sweet tutorial by a blogger called Thin Invisible Steel. I tried it out on Monday and below are my results. What do you think?

1950's Hair Tutorial

I have noticed many vintage hair tutorials the persons hair is either straight or very thin-mine is neither. My hair is VERY thick! So I wanted you to see how it looked after I took it out after having my sponge rollers in all night.

This is how it looked afterwards. I think I need more of my anti-frizz cream and also some more hair spray. Oh yeah and a hair flower in my hair...LOL But it's not that bad right?? I defiantly need to find myself like five standard hairstyles that I can do really well.

I look forward to sharing with you all my adventure with Frankenstein and his bride but also my how my hair turned out and well of course my outfit hehe

If any of you have any hairstyles that you can recommend-let me know. I would love to hear what works for you and what tutorials are your favorites!

  4. You look fantastic. I think you have the perfect hair and face to pull off the 1940s and 1950s hairstyles. It looks so natural on you. I think it's because you always look so elegant and ladylike in all your photos. :)

  6. Here is tip for us thick haired girls, I can never get any kind of a good roll with clean hair. It has to be dirty and then it will style perfectly!

  7. Vintage hair is a lot of hard work! I totally fail sometimes, but it seems like you have the hang of it. When I have more time away from my tot I'll totally do something like this. :D- Cassie http://www.dailydirtydiaper.blogspot.com

  9. A hair flower covers all mistakes/errors! They are very useful :)

  10. I think your hair looks beautiful! You are so, so incredibly lucky to be blessed with a full, thick head of hair. Mine continues to thin more and more with each passing week, and I decided last week that's it's crossed the line (hiding the nearly bare patches on top is getting too tricky unless I use scarves and headbands - or hats - all the time) that it's time for me to go (synthetic - can't afford human hair at the moment) online wig shopping in the very near future. Hopefully my "new hair" will be somewhat thicker and allow me to finally try out more of the vintage styles (think rolls!) I've always longed to wear.

  11. Welcome back, Bunny! Your hair looks great that way! Wish I were able to get mine to to turn out that well when attempting vintage styles.
