Aren't these pretty? I've been extremely busy crafting Christmas gifts for everyone, but if I get a chance I may have to make one of these for myself to wear during the holidays. 

That's All.

  1. Oh, that's true, the holidays are coming up again. If you have some spare time, will post a holiday hair tutorial again? I really enjoyed those last year :)
    And yes, those pictures do look pretty

    1. Thanks :) I will certainly try to find the time to post at least one video. It takes a while to make a video, but I'm hoping my work schedule will get lighter the closer we get to the holidays.

  2. My word, these splendidly beautiful - and ravishingly elegant. Any one of them could easily, and very stylishly, be sported still to this day, whether one was a vintage or contemporary fashionista (and I can't help but think how marvelous they'd be for a New Year's Eve party!).

  3. So much fun to read these! I like the 4th design, although I don't know how you're supposed to make your hair that massive. What did they use instead of hairspray I wonder??

    1. My guess is false hair. Most of the hairdressing books from that time period I've read use false hair as extra padding. Maybe also some backcombing underneath, but I would think these styles would likely need hair pieces to get that kind of volume.
