Fashion often takes inspiration from older times, as do beauty trends. You only have to look at the 60s feline flick of eyelinder to realise that really, we all want a piece of that nostalgia.
I’ve thought to myself “I was born in the wrong decade” on multiple occasions. I will never see Ian Curtis dance and that makes me so sad.
This evening, on a whim of spare time and experimentation, I had a go at emulating a classic 1920s look, all waves and pins and fluttery lashes, courtesy of my good friend, GHD.
Products used: GHD Air (sponsored), Aussie Miracle Hair Insurance Spray, OSiS+ Hairbody, 1 bobble, 4 clips, and a free evening to experiment
Except. I’m not really a delicate sort of person when it comes to style. So it was only right to bring the androgyny back, and update the look for 2012. Here is my 1920s inspired look, for the modern laydee.
Ok, so it's not quite as neat as my inspirational images, but neat and trim was never really me anyway, was it?
Youtube is your saviour for this sort of fiddly style, and there are lots of tutorials from ordinary girls who want to stand out from the crowd with a signature, vintage style. One in particular which is especially good is this one!
