New Haircut!

Hi All!

Hope you’ve had a lovely week so far.  I got a brand new haircut last week and tried my first curl set on it today.  It was all just done with sponge rollers, no particular pattern or set.  Thought I’d share a picture :)

I made my top from a late 20s pattern using vintage burnout fabric.  Someday I’ll actually finish it and make a matching skirt, I swear….

Hope today was full of good things for you!

    Oh Lauren, it looks FABULOUS on you! There must be something in the air, I got a cut recently too but not as short. It really suits you fantastically well, you look like a silent film star. :)

    Your hair looks wonderful! I am envious as my hair is so very strait ! But at least I can sport a Louise Brooks style.*giggle* Adore the top as well! I agree with what Tasha said above, you do look like a silent film star! The blouse is adorable as well! So wish I could sew, I would have a closet full! Just wonderful !

      Thanks so much! My hair’s actually pretty straight, too, but I got a perm a while back and there’s still just enough to help the ends keep a curl :)

    You look lovely Lauren- it really suits! Some days I wish I had short hair again but I’m too afraid to have the chop…. maybe one day. For reference, how short is your new do?

      Thanks! When it’s not curled it’s just a little bit under my chin for length, and cropped shorter in back.

    You look perfect! You always do but that length shows your face in a lovely way.

    (oh, and I have a question for you, will you republish some 20’s patterns on you shop?)

      Thanks so much :)
      Eventually I’d like to do 20s patterns. I have some cute ones on the wish list for adding, but I’m afraid I haven’t been able to work on patterns as much as I’d like to lately. I’ll get to them eventually :)

    Cute haircut. Though I don’t know what you looked like before the cut since I’ve only just found your blog and have yet to really explore it. Speaking of waves. I was doing a 40s/50s outfit for a friend’s wedding a while back and really got into it. I even cut my hair as short as it’s ever been in my life (just to my shoulders). By the time the wedding came around it had grown out some, but I still curled it up with period setting lotion (I don’t go for chemicals when I can find something natural). Setting lotion is really easy and cheap to make and definitely works. I’d be happy to give you the instructions if you like.
