I still get a little giddy when I think about the finger waves I rocked at my own wedding. 🙂 Seeee? http://jennacole.com/blog/2009/12/11/wedding-mary-opie/ 1 agrees Reply I love your hair for your wedding….I would love to do that but my hair is really long….I am still thinking vintage though!! Reply There are certainly long versions of finger waves. I grew mine out from a buzz cut to rock mine! Ha. While the idea came when I got my dress, it was also a bit of an homage to the grandmother I was named for. She was born in 1910 and she has finger waves in all my favorite photos of her from her youth. 🙂 Reply Wow Mary, you look adorable! Love the hair, dress, everything! Thanks for sharing your wedding pictures. Reply !!! Thank you so much for showing your photos! I'm having a 50's themed wedding and coming a bit short *no pun intended* on hairstyles for shorter hair. You rock, and the photos are fantastic Reply Hot! I am so doing a vintage updo (not vintage 1960s beehive, style though!) for my wedding. These photos make me tempted to do the half-up, half-down thing, though. Especially since my hair and curling irons get along very well. Hmm…. Reply and the make up!! shes just so pretty Reply Any girls who love vintage hairstyles should pick up the book by Lauren Rennells simply called Vintage Hairstyling. I own this book and have gifted it as well. Excellent step by step, pictures and background. You really can't go wrong with it. 1 agrees Reply I also love this book, and I further recommend http://bobbypinblog.blogspot.com/ which is Lauren Rennells's blog, and includes even more hair inspiration and tutorials! Reply Beautiful vintage 'do, but I'd have said it was more 1940s than 1950s. Not that it matters at all, except if you're wanting a strictly authentic look. I've often seen this style of hair paired with 50's dresses and love the way it looks. Reply I love this look….I want to duplicate it for my Burlesque/pin up themed Bridal shower…!!! Oh yeah, you can also find how to's on youtube….. Reply There's a place in Chicago called Tiger Lilie that does vintage hair. They have great haircuts too. Reply Loooooooove this. 🙂 Reply Yes! Thank you! I've been searching the internet for vintage hair styles (I really want victory rolls), but have been having trouble finding good images. I will be bringing these to my meeting with my hairdresser this weekend! THANK YOU!!! Reply I'm really, really psyched because I'm gonna have serious Betty Draper hair for my wedding (in 2 weeks! Ack!). We're having a seriously budget wedding in Brooklyn, and it's my one splurge. I'm getting my hair done by Michelle at Pimps and Pinups on the Lower East Side; any girls that are in NYC should take note… she's awesome. Reply i really like those 50`s hair styles Reply This is definitely great inspo!! Reply Join the conversation Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
