1920's hair

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

Lately I've been talking about finger/marcel waves for various reasons.

Sometimes it is hard to tell the difference between the two. Marcel waves were developed by hairdresser Francois Marcel in France. His process involves a small barreled curling irons or small curlers. To set these waves you take out the curls and brush them out when cooled.

Fingers waves are different in that they involve setting lotion and no form of heat. Instead the hands/comb kink the hair into place. This technique is usually used on African American women.

There are a lot of tutorials on youtube but 95% of them are crap. Here is the best one I could find.

My mother's wedding dress

My mom got married in the late 70's/early 80's. This is quite evident by the amount of lace on her dress. A couple of years ago my mom gave it to me because she obviously had no use for it and it wasn't exactly a dress filled with happy memories (my parents divorced when I was 3). I really wish I had pictures of her in it but there aren't too many. I don't even think that they have a wedding album. Having her dress with me in my trunk is kind of like having her with me now that I'm in college and don't live close by.

New Year

So it took me quite awhile but I finally finished my top that I started over the summer. I've been constantly busy so it took forever to finish. It looks really great on the mannequin, perhaps not so much on me.

Tonight was the premiere of Project Runway Allstars. It was quite exciting for me to see Austin, Mondo, and some others return to the show. All the outfits blew my mind away except for one, and that was Sweet P's. The towel dress was boring and gross looking. It's crazy that she wasn't eliminated. Can't wait for next week!
