Blue Butterfly Hat! Outfit Post!

Hello Vintage Darlings!!
Today I want to show you my vintage Blue Butterfly outfit post!! I love this hat it heavy enough for winter and fall but also still airy for early spring!!Everything I am wearing is from the 50's!! :) The dress I am wearing is SO warm and cozzy . It was really cold and windy, so that was a plus to have a warm dress!!
I am also wearing this new lipstick that is from the line 'no7' its more of a blue red lipstick. I like it alot , its stays forever no smudge or any thing!!! :)
Here are some photos!!!
Check them out!!

My hair was set like Jane Powell in a 1953 movie with bangs. I like this style set!! Its adorable!!!
Hope You Enjoy!!

Hello Vintage Lovers!
Today I am going to show you 2 vintage simple up dos.Yes 2!!! The first one is that classic girl next door pony tail with fringe ( or no fringe , your choose). Last but not least a timeless french twist.
Here is what you need:
Hair spray, Bobby pins, Medium size rollers, Pony Tail holder.
1) The Classic Pony Tail

First set your hair in medium sized rollers. All rollers are facing down.

Rollers being taken out

Then brush your hair in a medium low ponytail. Not to high nor not to low.

Take a section of hair from your tail, and wrap it around 1 and a half.

Pin the wrapped section in to the tie.

If you have banged tease them just a bit

Brush fringe to the side.
Finish with hair spray!!

2) The classic French Twist

Since you have body in you hair from the roller set. Tease your hair on top.

Tease Tease Tease!!

Smooth down tease and begin brush your hair in one side.

Take your bobby pins a start to pin your hair. cross each bobby pin for supreme hold.

Take other side of hair and think victory roll!! Brush it into a roll and bobby pin it on each end.

Finish with hairspray!!!

I really hope you enjoy my hair style how to! Its very simple but yet glamorous.... vintage girl next door!!
If you have any question feel free to ask!!

Hello Vintage Lover!
In a couple of days I will be posting a Hair How To for the Girl Next Door Series.

I chosen Sandra Dee for my inspiration!

When I was a lot younger I grew up watching her play Gidget, Tammy, and The Summer Place. When I see her I always thought to my self when I grow up to be a teenager I want to be like Sandra Dee ( Gidget). Sandra Dee was SO cute and innocent... and talk about her hair and style!! It was amazing!!

I gathered up some photos for you all to vote to see your favorite hair style recreated!
