I'm a big fan of 40's and 50's hairstyles and more modern spins on them. I'm pretty good at getting them to look right, but I have trouble getting them to set. Does anyone have any tips/products that make them stay put all day? If you wear a similar hairstyle on a pretty regular basis please post pics and/or give advice!

I would try a heavy-duty hairspray like aqua-net, that's what my friends with gravity-defying hair use. It makes it pretty stiff, but that's the way those hairstyles stayed put, I suppose. Best of luck; I love hair from back then, it's so glamorous!  Cheesy

They swore by dippity-do back then, I would imagine that I really strong gel while your hair is wet and Aqua net  to finish it off, like shortkitty mentioned, would do the trick.

They still sell dippity do!  Well, at least Meijer does, if you have one.  I would imagine Walgreens/ Rite-Aid would too.  I suggest anything Bedhead.  Their stuff works really well for me.

I just get a picture of a hairstyle I like and copy it. Page boys are the easiest to do and they stay in the longest for me. All you need is a curling iron or big curlers. I also like a ponytail with my bangs (I have long fringe and I kind of poof it up and clip it off my face...i dunno how to describe it, if you saw it y'd know what i'm talking about!). That's another one that stays in for me. Or I use headbands to keep it all together. You can find a lot on the internet if you search. I've tried "setting lotion" too, but it doesn't work for me at all, maybe it would work for y'all.  Yeah about the dippidy-do ...it smells weird so I'm a little scared of using it and heavy pomades make my hair look realy dirty instead of shiny 'cause I have sandy blond hair. But dippidy do looks really good with really dark or really blond hair.

i worship bed head.  they have quite a few heavy duty hairsprays, gels, and waxes.  they only downside is the prices.  but even though they're expensive, you can usually find great 2-for-1 deals and get stuff that lasts a loooooong time.

When I was about 13 I wanted to do a flip.  My dads girlfriend was a teenager in the 50s and told me all how to do it.  I had super curly hair and we managed a perfect flip. We just used empty soda cans, big clips and a SHIT load of hair spray and a curling iron.
