I love setting lotion. Adore it! It's perfect for setting up a base for vintage hair. I can curl my hair perfectly in an hour and my extremely-curl-hold-resistant hair will hold curl for 4 days and sometimes through a mild washing. Also good for hiding clip-in bangs.

Rag or paperbag curls are easy, too. I just need to have them in for two hours with setting lotion and I'm curled for a few days.

I just came across this thread! Everyones hair is so pretty and good advice too.
I must say, once I did rag curls and it came out looking like a very extreme Harpo Marx hair Shocked (wish I had a picture of it now)
I am going to post a photo later of what I usually do to mine!

this is how I fixed my hair some days ago:

Kinda victory rolls, but real small, cause I can't seem to get the hang of them. It's by all means not perfect, but it held up in the rain and stormy weather (pic is actually taken after I got home) so it wasn't that bad. I'm wearing Benefit's Frenched lipstick which is actually more 'red' than it appears to be in this pics. I love it's colour and silkyness, though it bleeds quite easily, even when using lipliner.

Victory Rolls are the hardest to get right. I have been doing them for a year now and I think I have improved somewhat. But it's so hard to make them not look like MOUSE EARS  Cheesy

I have had Bettie Page bangs and grew them out. I got my hair cut exactly like it showed in this 1940s hair style book. It has really expanded the number of styles that I can do. I like combining waves with pin curl sets. The secret for rag curls and pincurls is a really good brush techniques after the set is done. That's how you get rid of that frizz. Also using end papers when You roll them helps. Try doing a set on dry hair. Just rolling dry hair up does not stretch it as much, and it gets rid of some of the frizz!   Cool

Ah man, this is so cool! Cheesy
I've tried some of the styles posted here and I lurve them~ Especially the little Rosie curlie things in the front, they feel like a poodle. :0

Hi there - I read through this whole thread and I swear I didn't see what I was looking for, if it's there I apologize for repeating this... does anyone know of a tutorial (or just advice) on how to get Veronica Lake waves? I have medium length hair, a little past my shoulders, and I have a big chunk of hair that used to be bangs in the front that is now growing out. For my wedding this summer I'd really like to do something like this

or this (basically the same I guess)

Would rag curls work for this? What about sponge rollers? Any tips on getting the front/top to look right? Any advice is appreciated!!

whoever i was
I'm not that person now
but what i wish i was
I'm still so far away from

Is your hair super straight? Would it totally irritate you if I said that if I wear my hair in a messy bun and don't wash it for a couple days it does that on its own? Grin

Have you tried just using a giant curling iron? I get the same result doing that and then shaking it out afterwards.

wow! i just checked out all the pics and love all your hair dos! gonna hafta take the time to read the convo and check out the links... here are a few of my vintage dos...
p.s. for reference - my hair goes down almost to my waist, has some long layers all over and chin length down to ends layers framing my face. in the winter i cut bettie bangs and let them grow out in the summer so in some pix they exist and others they are longer and shaggier. it is naturally wavy and kinda thin.

this was my first successfull attempt at victory rolls :

not really sure what happened here (at a victory roll attempt) but was happy with how it turned out lol

and from the side/back

and here is the same as above with half hair down and curled and flower on other side

this is my fave style to do ... next time i will photo the back so you can see how awesome it is all around

victory rolls minus the bangs

my first and only (so far) successful time getting glamourous waves from pin curls (and of course i wasnt even going anywhere)

and heres a victory roll tut pic i had downloaded

i am still very novice but find everytime it gets easier and prettier
