Flapper Girl

To channel your inner Flapper Girl at any time, start with a deep side part, and blow dry hair. Take small horizontal sections from the part, curl under and pin to your head. Continue on the rest of the hair in the same way until everything is curled. Use a wide bristled brush to smooth out the curls into waves. By pinning the ends under with bobby pins, you can make any hair length look like a short bob. 1940’s fun anytime!

Start by parting your hair all the way down the middle from front to back. Brush into high ponytails and secure. Backcomb at the base of each pony until all the hair is back combed and messy. Wrap hair into big, messy buns and secure with bobby pins. For extra, festive fun you could even add some glitter.

Who doesn’t know how to do a top knot by now? For an extra ballerina look, slick it all down with some gel and really wrap the ends tightly around the high ponytail base with bobby pins. Simple, pink lips but a dark lined eye will bring it all together.

  Pin Up

This look will take a little more styling, but is well worth it! For victory rolls, start with a side part, and blow dried hair. Start on the larger side of the part, take thin slices of hair from fringe to apex and back comb aggressively. Do this for around 5-6 sections, then gather all of them into your palm. Using a brush, smooth the top surface but leave the underneath backcombed. Roll hair, starting from the ends to the base. Fan out the roll to get a large roll and pin inside to the base. Spray like a madwoman to set it! Do another roll on the small side either rolled in the same way, or slightly asymmetrical. Smooth all the hair left out and roll under and pin or curl it and leave it down. Get your pinup on with black winged liner and a bright lip! 

Whatever you end up doing, make sure your hair looks great and you can pull anything off!
