I met my friend Sara for lunch today, and she came bearing gifts- a card of vintage Sta Rite hair pins and some Lady Elaine hair nets she had found when her family had a garage sale this past weekend. I am perpetually thinking about making changes to my hair, from changing its color, length, style, everything. I would have a new hairstyle every month if I could afford it!
So, I decided today would be a hair day, with some tutorials from some of my favorite vintage ladies on the web!
Most days of the week, I wear my hair in some variation of Casey‘s style in this tutorial:
Although, today, my hair looks like this:

She had a tutorial of this style on her blog, but it is no longer there, and as I can’t read Dutch, I don’t know why…

I discovered this girl today, and I just love everything about her- her clothes, her glasses, not to mention her flawless hair. Let’s see if I can figure out how she did this!
And finally, if you have never been over to the Bobby Pin Blog, go check it out. She posts tons of photos of beautiful styles, and you can get her book, Vintage Hairstyling: Retro Styles with Modern Techniques. My favorite post recently is when she discussed Lauren Bacall’s hair in the movie The Big Sleep.
