40’s hair


 I’m going to wear my hair like this!  I can almost get it into a victory roll but it is just a tad too short.  I’m definitely doing some variations of this gorgeous 40’s pin up look.  I love it!

I love this pic of Rita Hayworth.  This is the victory roll I want to do.  A flower on the side would be perfect.

Inspiration Boards


Have you tried this yet?  It is a great way to display your inspirational items, ideas, reminders, photos- anything you want to change often.  I’ve done it and I love the way it looks.  It is neater than  a bulletin board.  I just used wire and nails and some clips that are normally used for hanging curtains but anything would work.
