Lately I have been trying out a new hair style!

I saw this in issue 8 of Vintage Life magazine last summer. As some of you know I have very long curly hair..... I'm not brave enough to take the plunge & have it cut in a 1940/1950's style..... OH would hate it anyway!

This is easy to do & creates a great look..... I normally wear the rest of my hair in a bun & add a scarf to hide the ends.

Sorry the photo's are blurred...... I left it too late so had to take them in the dark!

It's very easy..... buy a hair bun, only £1 from Primark..... cut in half & roll. Pin the hair bun in a horse shoe shape & use a scarf to disguise it.

Make sure the edges are neat & spray with hair spray..... simples!!!

My fringe is nearly 2 foot long but I can still do this so it really can't be hard!!

Next time I do it I'll try to get a photo :) Do let me know if you give it a go.

It's Make, Do and Mend this week & we're yarn bombing!!! We're been planning it for over a year but as it's our 2nd birthday..... why does the time go?..... I wanted to let Exeter know we're still here!

Hope to be back soon unless I get a arrested with my wool & needles!!!


  1. Brilliant tip! Thanks so much for sharing Joe. I'll be trying this when my fringe has grown a bit.

    I did have it cut really short but its annoying because you have to style it every day. This way I can grow my fringe but still have the bangs I love and clip it up when I can't be bothered xxx

  2. it looks great.! cant wait to see how it looks in real life.

  3. I love this!!!I have a bun ring so I'm gonna give this a try (with contact lenses (Sometimes I hate wearing glasses they make you look so stupid when you try an new look!) Your hair is great and it woud be a mistake to cut it, especially when you can get a great look without!

  4. What a good idea! And I'm glad you're not going to cut your 'real' hair ;).
