Pinup Hair Challenge: Days 11-20
Here is Part 2 of the 30 Day Pinup Hair Challenge. See Part 1 by clicking here. Below you will see recreations of old images, several hair accessories, and I even got to doing another video or two. There are only a few more days left of the challenge on Instagram, are you following along?
Day 11: Use a Polka Dot Head Scarf
I could not decide which hair style I wanted to show while wearing a polka scarf, so why not show 5 different ways? These are all the easiest options, and require little to no skill.
Day 12: Dramatic Veil
This day I was feeling so sick! So I did not get to put as much effort here, but I still made it outside to stick with my commitment in the hair challenge. Using a long, red rose print scarf I used this as a veil on top of loose curls, with one pin curl in front. Click this link for a red rose scarf.
Day 13: Bumper Bangs
There are several different techniques when it comes to creating bumper bangs, a style which became popular in the 1940s. For me however, I think cutting a hair donut so that it is one long piece is the easiest. Then you wrap your hair down and pin into your desired shape. See a super easy 1 minute video below.
Day 14: Use a Turban
My old company use to sell turbans, so I am totally familiar and comfortable styling these. They come in really handy when roots need to be done, hair is a mess, rainy days, or to look cute really. Click here to find a turban for you!
Day 15: Updo with Red Flower, Red Top, & Use of Second Vibrant Color
Honestly, I don't wear many hair flowers, but I always wear my red poinsettia during the holidays. It's been a tradition of mine for over a decade now, and I think it looks so kitsch, but cute & classy! I wore a pop of bright green with my vintage clip ons, then my vintage red wrap sweater, and look at that cute star bag. Oh wait... it's not a bag, its a flask. Get yours at www.alwaysfits.com
Day 16: Beret & Striped Top
Pretty self explanatory... Last year I purchased this leopard beret and somehow never found a reason to wear it. It's so cute & comfy. Surprisingly, I did not have a striped shirt to wear for this challenge, so I ran into Target, found this long sleeve tee for $10, and I wore it 4 days in a row, and I'm not kidding!
Day 17: Snood
On day 17, challenge participants brought out their snoods. I look at this hair item like a hat or accessory, but it definitely comes in handy when curls need to stay put. Click here for a black hair net.
Day 18: Inspiration from a Vargas Pinup Girl
From the iconic artist, Alberto Vargas, I replicated a hair style from the girl in the red bathing suit. What do you think?
Day 19: Recreate a Look from Dorothy Dandridge
I felt super intimidated by this challenge, and I guess I do when I recreate a look exactly from a past photo or person. In no way am I trying to show how I can make myself look like them, I never think I do, but it is fun to style your hair, or in my case, find a dress that had similar lines to wear as well.
Day 20: Vintage Hat with Veil
Here's another piece I had purchased on Etsy well over a year ago, and never wore it! I knew I had this turquoise velvet, wiggle dress in my closet, but was waiting for the right time to put them on. I guess I needed a challenge to pull it out from my hat storage.
Thanks for checking in! Days 21-30 coming up in only a few days....
