Quick Rosie Hair Tutorial

Hey friends!  Today I've got a five minute tutorial video on how to do quick "Rosie" hair (as featured in this 1940s outfit post).  This hairstyle is GREAT for bad hair days or days when I'm in a rush.  (I'm in college, those days are..... often.)  It's also a fun way to showcase any fun scarves you have in an easy intro-to-vintage look.

If you try this hairstyle, post pics or links!  I'd love to see your take on it!

  1. Hi I have just seen your Blog and really love it. Could you tell me how I could do a look like yours but with short bobed hair please.

    1. It should be pretty much the same process, except you may not want to twist your hair before pinning it on the top. As long as your hair is long enough to pile on the top of your head, just curl the ends (like in the tutorial) and pin it in place. (Even if it isn't pretty or neat, that's okay; the scarf will cover it. Just get the curly ends of your hair up to the top, or if your hair is quite short, curl all your hair in front all the way to the roots and leave those out of the scarf instead as your curly loops). Then take the bit of hair from the front and roll it. If your hair is too short for a roll, do a twist and pouf instead!

      I hope this helps. If you need more explanation, just let me know, or email me and we'll talk!
