Hey Solanah, could you do a tutorial on (or just tell me if that's more convenient for you) how to get those bigger, flickier, more natural waves you've been sporting lately in your photos? I just got a hair cut around that length in order to get more authentic vintage hair, and my hair is super thick and frizzy naturally, so brushing out any sort of a wet set is disastrous and gives me triangular bushy masses of frizz. Please help! (Ps you're gorgeous and I love the new pink hair)

So these might help you out: How to: Pin Curls and How to: 1940s hair

I’ve been going back and fourth between medium sized velcro rollers and pin curls. I have frizzy and wavy hair, both tight waves and looser. The velcro rollers really help smooth and even things out most of the time. I shower at night, let the front of my hair dry until barely damp, then roll it. Then do the same with the back once it dries out a bit. Then I take them out before bed. It’s more effort than I’d like, but it’s a few hours at night, I just have to cancel party plans sometimes. 

That was a joke because I don’t go out after I have my pajamas on and I’m hilarious. 

Example:

The right side is a better example for vintage waves. You could do better. Just note how the top two rollers would bring hair upright, usually causing more volume but I dunno what happened this day it was probably fucking hot I look miserable. Those with smoother hair could also do this (again, a better version) with hot rollers. 

So once I bleached and dyed it, it’s a lot more “sculptable”, highly recommend fucking up your hair if you have naturally oily hair and want to do vintage wet sets. It’s awesome. 

And now Tumblr won’t let me upload another photo, but in these photos I basically set my hair in upright pin curls at the top and rolled them away from my face on the rest of my hair. HOWEVER I hadn’t washed my hair in 6 days and did a dry set and spritzed it with water. Earlier in the week I did a proper wet set and it looked much more vintage. There’s a pic on instagram (solanah) if you wanna dig for it. 

I know this is a bit long, but there’s a lot to vintage hair! You will just need to experiment. Try velcro rollers to smooth out and sleep in a pin curl set for soft waves. Try looser/tighter rolls, different ways of brushing out, there’s actually a lot that goes into brushing out that’s a big one no one touches on, but it’s really just trial and error. Try different brushes, combs, brushing under instead of on top. Blah blah blah. Lemme know how it goes!

I was looking back at your Supernatural dress post (because it's GORGEOUS!) and I was wondering what pattern you used for the dress. Thanks!

Thanks! It’s a vintage pattern, but if you search for “1950s sundress pattern” you might find something similar.
