I've been experimenting with curls now the length has improved as I don't really like the Bettie fringe with straight hair on me (sorry Fleur!) and have been lifting one side either in a twist or a full on victory roll!
I have a huge variety of flower clips and always wear one, I mean always!
Here are a few shots. See what I mean!

I've found a host of Vlogs and Blogs which have helped me trim my own bangs and attempt the victory rolls. Thanks must go to Lynsey of LeKeux events though for inspiring me that it was possible back in November when we visited her in preparation for my 40th birthday forties themed vintage tea party! Thanks also must go to my eldest daughter who is a pretty dab hand at most hair styles, encourages me to keep on trying (even though she has now perfected Victory rolls!) and who has *lent* me her tongs!!!
With 3 children and my own business, I've had to develop a cheats method to quick curls. It starts with my fringe which requires some styling help! I use a small pair of barrel tongs for this job.
|Bowl or Bangs?!|
|Essentials: Pin tail comb, barrel brush and regular brush. Batiste Dry shampoo, lacquer and heat spray.|
Next, I clip up both sides so I can tong the underneath first.
|Red lippy: Glam by no7|
I then pin up one side and add a flower to match my outfit!
|Not forgetting to lacquer of course!|

Not too shabby for a cheats guide to vintage curls! If I can do it, anyone can!!!
Happy Monday Folks!
