Recently all of us have been on a kind of "1940's fling" due to an upcoming 1940's themed event which we may be attending...and I have been fascinated with learning how to do that awesome 1940's styled hair. You know, that voluminous soft looking hair...well, with some research I have discovered how it is done...even though I know I cannot wear it (my hair is far too long) but I would still like to learn how to do it...I might have the occasion to do it for someone else some day! So, as the base of this hair style must begin with curled hair, today I decided to try and curl Renee's hair.
First I tried the hot rollers:
If so, you will be just as disappointed as I was 3 hours later...
This was the result:
Since that did not work I decided it is probably because her hair is half synthetic. Due to past experience with my dollies with long hair, I have determined that you cannot easily curl synthetic hair with heat. Not curling irons or heat rollers apparently.
So I decided to try the old school method, that time consuming method that was used by many women during the 1940's and other generations.
So I am hoping that this will work. I suspect that it will, because I have tried pin curls on my doll Fidelia and they produced lovely curls...even thought they were short lived...they would have had to have been sprayed with some sort of fixative to have retained their curl I think. Renee's hair may do the same thing...but we shall have to wait and see.
Anyhow, I shall close.
See ya'll tomorrow.
