As you know I do have curly hair, but the curls are a bit scruffy and drop really quickly which is frustrating so I decided to do something I haven't done since I was 14 years old and get a perm. The trouble with getting a perm in 2011 is, where on earth does perms?! And where would do one well?
Enter the Vintage Hair Lounge in Southampton. They specialise in vintage hair styles for both men and women, so I though THIS is the place for me!
Gloria, my stylist, washed my hair to get rid of any product, permed it, washed the perming solution out then set my hair in rollers and this is the finished result. I think it's absolutely beautiful!
The flower was made by Classy Chassis, who are at the Hair Lounge on Thursday and Friday evenings from 5-8. They sell hand made clothes to your exact size from original 1950's patterns, and a range of different fabrics.
The real test will be if I can recreate this look myself. I'll keep you updated!
