my daughters hair is quite long, she puts hairnets on, untill she can find the 1940's hairdresser at the show, then pays the fiver to have victory rolls. if no hairdresser, she keeps the nets on.

Hi there,
I did a little blog, and I use a lot of the tutorials on you tube. (but beware of the none 1940s 'pin up' styles)

Be very careful about loaning original items...also, please keep an eye out for :
*Still missing* Because some folks are devoid of an ounce of honesty or integrity.
Women's Navy Great Coat
Green floor length 1930s evening dress with sleeves set on net.
Blue and white rayon dress with peplum
Black velvet halter necked dress with silver shot thread skirt (may still have Harrods label in it) I have photos of all of these items and I know where they are in Scunthorpe, but would appreciate a nod if they come up for sale. [/color]

Hi I started doing re-enactments a couple of years ago and i found this video on how to do victory rolls, which is so helpful and easy to follow it takes a couple of attempts to get it right but it's worth it in the end. http://www.diaryofavintagegirl.com/2011/02/victory-rolls-in-jiffy.html

I usually either fasten my hair back completely by rolling the whole lot into a horse shoe shape around the back of my head from ear to ear, or I make a big roll across the front and curl what is left hanging. Like this .... http://www.fanpix.net/0108628/016732212 ... cture.html My hair is 2 or 3 inches below my shoulders and has a few layers. Poker straight hair was not fashionable during the war so if you have any hair left hanging after styling victory rolls for example you should give it a bit of a curl or a wave!
