Pinup Hair : guest post by Kathleen :

Hello all! I’m Kathleen, and I blog over at Don’t Stand On That, You’ll Break It.
I am many things, among them a wife, mother, Harry Potter nerd, and professional hairstylist. 

Today I’m going to teach you how to do vintage pinup hair, also known as Victory Rolls!
You excited?
Me too! Let’s get started! 


For this hairstyle you will need a comb, brush, bobby pins, and hairspray. 


My lovely sister, Carrie, agreed to be my model. First, curl your hair a bit. I prefer a curling iron, but you can use whatever you want. 


Next, separate a section of hair from the ear forward, and comb that section up towards the top of your head. Because Carrie has baby-fine hair, I back-combed it a bit to add some thickness, but you can skip that step.



Next, wrap that same section around two of your fingers, and when it is almost all wrapped, carefully slide it off of your fingers, so that it keeps its shape.  



Finish rolling the section, keeping it in a circle, and pin it in place.
Repeat the same process on the other side, and spray! 


And there you have it!
Don't get discouraged; this is a style that takes some practice. Just keep trying, and you'll get it!
 And have fun!

If I had much hair, I would totally try it! Such a cute look!  Thanks so much for stopping by Kathleen!

As much as I love blogging, with everything going on in or lives right now (see THIS post), I just do not have the time to invest in Lena B as much as I want to.  I enjoy this space so much, and I have so much respect for my readers & friends that it wouldn't feel right to completely ignore the blog right now... I will be posting as much as I can, but when I can't I have some awesome bloggers lined up to bring you some fabulous posts!  Please be nice to this rockin' ladies.  I appreciate them so much!
