Are you passionate about vintage hairstyles from the 1920s - 1960s? If yes, then the book, Vintage Hairstyling by Lauren Rennells is a must have.
Lauren Rennells is a hair and makeup artist and as indicated on her blog (http://bobbypinblog.com/), she has a ''borderline obsession with retro beauty techniques''. Her passion sure is evident by looking at her work! It's no wonder her vintage beauty how-to books are popular among modern vintage girls.
Vintage Hairstyling is jam-packed with retro hair styles and techniques (more than 35 styles!!). The book walks you through each hairstyle/technique step by step, all fully illustrated and with detailed instructions.
I really like how the book is user friendly and how it thoroughly covers such a wide variety of hairstyles. I'm more inclined towards the 1940s and 1950s and thankfully there are plenty of hairdos from this era in the book. I think Vintage Hairstyling is suitable not only for women who already know what they're doing, but also for clueless vintage lovin' ladies too! Some styles are simpler while others are more sophisticated and artistic (hairstyling is an art after all!).
I can't wait to try these hairstyles out, especially The Happy Pompadour, The Pin Up, The Page Boy and The Receptionist (this one's sooo Mad Men).
I love how much shorter my hair looks after using these rollers.......
no need for a haircut!

|Rockin Rollers and Vintage Hairstyling by Lauren Rennels: c/o HRST books|
Consiglio vivamente il libro Vintage Hairstyling di Lauren Rennels, una truccatrice e acconciatrice, esperta di bellezza vintage/retrò. Il libro è pieno zeppo di tutorial e consigli su come creare acconciature degli anni '20, '30, '40 e '50. E' un libro perfetto per chi vuole sembrare una donna di altri tempi!
Consiglio anche i Rockin' Rollers che sono dei bigodini morbidi, comodissimi anche mentre dormi. Come potete vedere dalle foto in alto, usandoli ho ottenuto dei ricci morbidi, quasi ondulati. Anche questo è un prodotto utilissimo per creare delle acconciature retro-rockabilly.

I highly reccomend the book, Vintage Hairstyling, as well as the Rockin' Rollers if you want to recreate retro hairstyles and look like a lady from the Golden Age of Hollywood!
