Faking soft finger waves

I have been having fun playing with my new haircut this past week! I am loving it so much!!! I wish I had bobbed it earlier. Today I thought I would try faking finger waves for a 1920s feel. I was not looking for that plastered Marcel Wave look, but instead I wanted something a bit softer that would give the impression without looking costumey.  I had seen on Pinterest a while back someone use a curling iron to achieve the look. I am a moron though and I did not pin it, so I decided to just give it a go on my own. Here is what I did:
I used my curling iron and alternated clamping it on my hair starting at the roots upside down, then right side up. I continues alternating down the length of the hair curling the tip under and toward my face when I reached the bottom.
It gave me the desired results. I am quite pleased. If you want a more defined finger wave look I did find some tutorials after I did this where they use a similar method really bending the hair over the iron and then clipping the bend into place as the continue down the hair. The difference is with that method you get more of a ridge than I did. Here is a link to the video I found.

Vintage Hollywood

There are so many vintage wearing celebs out there. Here are a few of my favorites. These ladies nail vintage with style and grace. I would love to peak into any of their closets. I bet they are treasure troves of beautiful one of a kind vintage pieces, the likes of which I can only imagine. Some of these photos below are vintage inspired looks, but that's still OK by me.

Color Stories IV- Turquoise

Turquoise and aqua are newer obsessions of mine. I used to not be so fond of them, but tastes evolve, and now I can't get enough. I suppose it is the shabby chic influence. Such a perfect hue for spring! All of the photos are linked to their source just as in color stories part I, II, and III so click away and happy Etsy shopping.
