How To: Vintage Inspired Hair Curls/Waves!

Ever wondered how you can get those soft, lovely waves you’ve seen on 50s actresses such as Lauren Bacall, Marilyn Monroe, or Jane Russell?

Not only is this hairstyle actually quit simple, but there are many different ways on how you can recreate this look. In Thecherrydollface's video, she shows how simple this look can be with the pin curl method. 

Personally, this is my favorite way to do these waves because not much heat is needed. Hope this helps! Have a lovely day ~ xoxo

Ugh.

Sorry for the lack of posts guys, working with new layouts can be stressful. 😒

Hi! I’ll post a written tutorial on my blog about it later today! Stay tuned. 😃
