Vintage hair 2
OOH LA LA!

Let’s start at the very beginning. I’ve heard it’s a very good place to start. This is just a hint of vintage, and not full on Rita Hayworth (although we will get there). This is one of my favorite looks that you can wear anywhere without feeling over-done or too literal. It flirts with old school 1940′s glamour but doesn’t feel costume-y. Lauren sometimes pairs this with something simple because it instantly redefines your entire look.
-1″ barrell curling iron
-large setting clips
-medium hold hairspray
1) Find your side part. Either side will do.
2, 3, 4 & 5) You’re going to curl ALL of your hair inward toward your face (as Lauren does above) and clip the curls in place with large setting clips. Mist all over with a light-medium holding hairspray. Let them cool while you put on your makeup. Multi-Tasking!! Give it atleast 15 minutes to cool and set.
6) Gently pull the clips out and let your hair fall.
7) Using a flat or paddle brush, brush hair back and away from your face and then let it spring back. The wave pattern will automatically start to appear. Keep brushing gently until it shows up. We like to help it along by molding the waves where you want them by hand and then adding one more veil of hairspray.

Last night, our lovely Lady Conrad was out on the town sporting a faux-bob, double liner and a fuchsia lip! Follow these steps to get the look!
- Follow steps 1-8 of the “Vintage Vixen” tutorial. The key to a good faux bob is the braiding and pinning in the back!
- After brushing everything out, only back comb and tuck the longest pieces. Allow some pieces to fall loosely toward your face on the heavier side.
- Twist and pin pieces on the other side and secure them into the back. Make sure you blend them in the same way we did in “Twisted Sister”.
- Finish off with a veil of medium hold hairspray.
This is the perfect example of two quick ways to transform your signature makeup to a party girl look.
- Add a white line just above your black winged liquid liner to draw more attention to it and make it a little more stylized. I used a matte white kohl liner but you can certainly use a liquid or cream version as well. **Tip: draw the thick white line first then go back and draw the thinner black line over it.
- Add a bright pop of color to the lip. We chose a magenta/fuchsia cream lipstick but you can pick any shade as long as it is bright and good for your undertones.
