Hair!  Anyone that knows me, knows that I am law of least effort when it comes to my hair – but this will not do when it comes to the 1940s events!

I’ve usually got my hair in an asymmetrical bob style, which is not really conducive to other styles.  However, knowing these events are looming, I’ve not had my hair cut since December in order to allow it to get a little longer and be able to curl it a little!  I usually just curl the front and pin in up slightly, using a hair snood to gather in the back and cover up the modern style – doesn’t look too bad (especially with the make-up), but my report card states: “definitely could do better”!

In previous years, my daughter went as an evacuee child and with her very long hair it was easy just to put it into two plaits.


This year, she is more grown-up (a mature 11 yrs old!), is wearing a more adult outfit and has had her hair cut to shoulder length.  So, in an attempt to make us look a little more authentic, I have been trawling YouTube for inspiration and came across Vintagious – she’s my kinda woman – simple styles for the less able amongst us – a blessing!

I will post pics of what I manage to create this weekend.

Still needing a LOT of practice, I think she’s going to have to start practising her own!

Unfortunately, after spending time doing Liv’s, I was struggling to concentrate on mine, so back to the snood it was, although I do actually quite like the look and kept it in all day, even after we’d got home and I’d got changed!
