i was just browsing through my drafts and realized that i forgot to publish this - i wrote it back in march 2010! so, while i'm working on other things, i hope this entertains you.
i have very fine hair, so most of the time it's long, straight, parted either sideways or in the middle - nothing too exciting. even when i was younger, i longed for thick, wavy, or curly hair. back in the early 90's i attempted to style my hair with the little flip in the front - which always ended up looking like a flat pancake stuck on top of my forehead (the photo below is what it was supposed to look like). so, ever since, i've decided to get someone else to do my hair - a well-thought out solution indeed!
i'm no expert hair stylist, but i've always been a fan of rockabilly / pin-up / 50's hairstyles. the are so intricate and well, coiffed! here are some of those hairstyles: some modern, inspired, and original...
i love gwen stefani!
i can't forget about bettie page:
