That is absolutely awesome! I'm currently rocking my feathered farrah bangs and cat eyes. Love you beehive, though! I wish I could pull one off, but I just end up looking like some bad extra from Hairspray.

I've done my hair in a pomp lots of times. I have straight, fairly thick hair, and I've found what works best is to comb the section of hair you want in the pomp straight up, put a hair elastic on there about 4 inches from the roots. You can put a bit of hairspray on now. Now take about four hairpins and stick them in, close to the hair elastic but on the side closer to your forehead. Stick them in so the opening is pointing straight toward your face. More hairspray. Ta-da!

I've been calling hair salons asking if it's possible to get a finger-wave permanent but they seem to think not..what do you all think?


You will probably have to go to a salon for older women. I had to do that, as I got fingerwaves for my senior pictures. Cheesy
Also you can do it yourself at home. All you need is hair setting stuff, or good gel, papers, and long clips. You can get both of those things at any beauty store.
It's pretty easy to do. Wet your hair and put in the setter/gel, then wave it, paper it, and clip it. Blow dry low and ta-da!

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 Sad )

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.

any ideas?
I also want to try pin/rag curls to see what kind of fro might result. Wink

I can post a pic if anyone would like

TIA!!

I'd try rollers- either hot rollers or regular big ones. Use a pretty large size and lots of product, then lightly gently loosen the curls with your fingers when dry, and spray the bejeezus out of it! You may need some light back combing depending on your hair.

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!!!!
