I have a question for all you ladies with beautiful hair...
I have a plain old bob, pretty much one length, made out of stick straight hair (that didn't used to be
without getting it cut, how might I attempt the typical Marylin Monroe 'do? I've tried using my curling iron a few times today, but that just goes flat in under five minutes. I have managed to kind of curl the front part into fake bangs that flattened out to be similar to marylin's, but I have no idea what to do with the rest of my head.
I also want to try pin/rag curls to see what kind of fro might result.
I can post a pic if anyone would like
Just a tip (my profession is doing vintage hair styling, so this is my honest opinion...) for getting your hair to look like Marilyns... you will need to have a layered hair cut, or else the style won't work-- Marilyn had a "uniform" or 90 degree cut... it's basically a mulllet-esque cut if the hair is left straight, but when set when wet with a strong hold gel, rollers and then finished off when dry with hair spray it will be those fabulous curls that make us all swooooooooon...
This is a great cut also for people with fine/flat hair, it will add a bit of body...
Hope that helps a little!!!!
