Delicious Style Bites Entry 3 ~Signature Hair Style~

Hello my Loves.

During the 12+ months that I have been on my journey to become a Retro Fashion Icon, one major Retro fashion truth has manifested itself...

Ya' gotta have a bangin' Old Glam hairstyle!

No you don't necessarily have to have one signature one. By all means experiment away! And why not, there's so many to choose from ---

Pin Curls & Victory Rolls (Betty Grable 'slayed' these styles)

Bettie Page Bangs

Classic Old Hollywood Curls (long or short)

Classic Old Hollywood waves (long or short)

Flapper Bobs

Nylon Scarf/Bandana Trend

You Name It!!

I love curls, waves, and ~depending on how long my bangs are~ the peek-a-boo 'a la Veronica Lake'. As a signature however, I've opted for the side-swept pin-curl as featured in my banner photo (or smaller pin curls if I want a Flapper look).

Its my classic everyday hairstyle for work, home, church, miscellaneous name it.

I'm also a big fan of the pre-pin curl 'Old Hollywood' hump, which I usually sport on 'bad pin curl days'.

Both of these styles are simple for me to achieve and both accentuate my Retro look and give me a 'Retro flare' on days when I don't dress like it.

Whatever your clothing style, don't forget that a flattering hair-do      is just as vital in achieving a chic and polished persona. 

Ciao Daaah-lings!

Love Always,
