More retro hair, darling.

I went ape with the 1930s theme at my sister’s wedding. I did soft waves on myself, my sister Kelly, my sister in law Melanie, and fingerwaves on my sister Erin. It was the retro hair loving girl’s dream come true. I hermited in the upstairs of the bridal suite (at the Georgian Terrace Hotel in Atlanta, amazing) and did hair and did hair and did hair some more. I was focused. I turned on some music…a little Britney, a little Bowie, a little Gaga…and my curling iron and I had a party.

Here are the fruits (curls) of my labor.

 

I was so excited to do fingerwaves. It’s been a long time and I enjoy them so thoroughly. Even in beauty school when everyone was moaning on about how awful they were, I was passing mine off left and right. I was a little rusty, but got the swing after a few tries. If I could marry retro hair, I surely might.

Below you’ll find a lovely photo of the Shake It Girls. We did a fantastic choreographed dance at the reception to “Hey Ya” that took months of practice. I’m in the center, the two on the right are friends of my sisters’, and the two on my left are my sisters. Yay. Erin’s fingerwaves turned out nice, right?

I plan to post some more photos of the wedding and the beautiful brides and even a tutorial for the vintage looking hair pieces Melanie and I wore. Stay tuned, darling!

    Hi Reagan! I’m really a fan of yours! I love your tutorials and your style. I love vintage things, mainly in hair and in fashion. I’m from Brazil and I’m a Nutritionist who always dreamed to be a hairdresser. In January I’m going to do the course to became one and I know that I need to learn and work a lot to have the same sucess… I just know that good things are gonna happen…
    If possible, I would like to see a hairstyle in natural curly hair (without any heat tools).
    I wish the best for your sister!
    I’M SORRY IF I WROTE SOMETHING WRONG.
