I spent this weekend with my boyfriend at my Mom’s house, and I had a great time. I did a little stocking up at Wal Mart, since most stuff is cheaper there than anything in NYC. I also decided to really go old school and try some cold cream, and I got another curling iron, but with a bigger barrel. I also bought a few more things on Amazon (SO addicting!), like pillow rollers, a cosmetics organizer, vanity mirror, hair flowers, stippling brush, et cetera. I’m excited about getting all of it, albeit a little guilty about spending money. I really dove in the deep end with going vintage! LOL.
I was able to do victory rolls with a bumper bang (Thank you, hair rat!) when I went to see my orthopaedic surgeon this past week to schedule my shoulder surgery (That’s a whole other story). The hair, along with my Bettie Page dress, was a total HIT! I was getting double takes the whole day, and all of the girls at the doctor’s office were oogling over my hair and dress. It was an amazing feeling, and something I could definitely get used to more of! 🙂
I was really anxious about doing the victory rolls, as I have heard how hard they can be to do. I decided that curling prior to rolling was a good option, to “pre-form” the hair into a roll. Boy was I right! It was ever so much easier. But I think I may have something on the way that is even better for doing victory rolls, thanks to a Ms. Lauren Rennells suggestion – the Curl Easy Pro Brush from Sally’s Beauty Supply. I’m still waiting for it to ship (apparently Sally’s on Amazon takes forever), but when I do, I will let you know how it goes and review it on here.
Other than that, not much else. Until next time!
