Today I went and got my haircut and styled at the fabulous Scott Robb Hairdressing in Falkland, Scotland. Alex, my stylist did such an amazing job!!
Ok, here's a photo of my long locks before the cut:
I decided to get the "Middy" haircut. The 1940's Hairstyles book gives directions for the cut and says it is... "a very versatile length, the hair is cut 4 inches long. This length became popular during the war with women who refused to cut their hair too short but still wanted to show support for the war effort. Considered a medium cut, this was the most popular length of the decade. It offered the most flexibility in styling techniques and could easily be worn up or down without much effort."
Here's more details on the cut (again from the 1940's hairstyles book):
Alex did an amazing job styling my hair with two reverse rolls (joining as one) in the front and two rolls on the side and a couple in the back:
I can't wait to play around with pincurls and different 40's styles!!!
