hair, oh hair

So...with the move coming up (I'm sure you're gagging with the sheer number of times I mention "the move") I'm having to do all my final beauty "things" before we go. We pull out of North Carolina on Thursday December 4 at 8:00 in the morning, sharp! So Wednesday, I have a very busy day!

9:30-10:00, final appointment with Dr. C, my miracle worker. (<---We'll get to this in another post.) His offices are all the way in Kinston so it's about a forty five minute drive back home.

12:30-4:30, final beauty salon appointment, including: eye brow wax, manicure/fill, pedicure, and haircut.

Which, is why I've been furiously searching every Internet article, Fedora Lounge board, and old movie site I can get my hands on! I'm looking for a good vintage cut. Something that I can pin-up, curl, wave, or if I'm having to be very modern for the day/evening, straighten. I think these are what I'm going to give to Laura, my beauty guru:

Isn't Veronica Lake beautiful? What I wouldn't give to have that porcelain skin!

Anyways, yes. That's that haircut I'm going to ask for. My hair still has a bit of growing to do, but hopefully I can start getting it to look like this soon!

I'll leave you with my very cute little outfit from yesterday (remember, I'm still building my vintage wardrobe, so I'm not all there yet!)

(I call this my Swiss Miss hair-do. It's two braids pinned underneath themselves. I do a lot of pinning in the winter.)

(Okay, so my jeans are actually Navy pants, my shoes are vintage-inspired, seen here, my wonderful warm wool pea coat has a bit of retro feel to it, and my little hat tops it off nicely. Not fully retro, but I am still a vintage-baby.)

    You look very cute. Like someone famous but I cant figure out who.

    What color lipstick is that. It's a nice subtle shade.

  2. Thanks Trixie!

    That's my go-to shade, it's Sephora brand lip liner #045.
