Video Tutorial: Vintage Wave & Gibson Tuck (Ally’s version)

I am so very excited to share with you all another vintage hair tutorial, it has been quite some time since my previous one so I am bringing it back with a bang!

Last week I posted an image of my daily hairstyle on Instagram (@allyvintage) and I had so many requests for a tutorial I simply couldn’t say no, the style is a Vintage Wave and (my version) of a Gibson Tuck, the reason I say “my version” is that it is an adapted technique to what you may see posted anywhere else, this involves side rolling and no assistance of an elastic or topsy turvy manoeuvre, so if your game to try a new version this is a good place to start!

I was so fortunate to have my incredibly talented man film and edit this video and I am sure I will rope him into filming many more in the future too!

If you have any questions or need some advice about this style please write them in the comment section and I will answer them as best as I can! Xx

Christmas Hair…

I have been getting into the Christmas spirit and trying out a few different hair ideas, since its so darn hot here i have been wanting to just get my hair off my shoulders and a cute way to do it was a simple Betty Grable inspired up-do with holly that i chopped off the stem and pinned individually. Its so cute and easy..and although im sorry the photo isnt the best it will survive a full night dacing (tried and tested).

I will be taking a few days break from blogging while im stuffing my face with mince pies and lazing in the pool with a Christmas cracker hat on.

I hope you all have a Merry Christmas Xx
