I have been sporting a Joan Harris-esque up-do for my day to day and work wear; an early 1960s style up-do with lots of volume up top. It is very easy to achieve and holds brilliantly all day when you are running about; I'll do a tutorial post on how I achieve this look a little later in the week, it really is very easy.
On lazier days I lean more toward Brigitte Bardot for my inspiration, I have always loved her slightly disheveled looking hairstyles, they are so easy to create and the best part is it does not matter - in fact is actually helps - if bits fly away or start to fall out, it makes the whole style look more tactile in my eyes. I do normally prefer the more polished styles of the 40s, 50s and early 60s but there is something about this look which I have a soft spot for on my lazy days and especially when I have a curl set which is staring to fall out.
I'll finish up this cold Sunday night with some lovely pictures of beautiful vintage hairstyles which I am currently lusting over. Let me know what you think! I always love to hear from you!
