Hair Competition (part 2) 1940’s Autumn hair


My last post was about the Christmas hair Competition, so I thought I’d just let you know about our latest competition,

the theme was “The Seasons”. I chose Autumn, I must admit Summer is my favorite month by a mile, but I do love the Autumn sun, and the colours of the leaves in Autumn

I also chose to put my spin on the hairstyle 😉 and went for a Vintage 1940s style with Victory Rolls at the front and designed a cute row of vertical rolls at the back and then added a hair slide I made with some decorative acorns, toadstools, feathers etc

Aaaaaaaand…………….. I won 1st Prize!!

I created this look by curling all the hair first with tongs, the two front sections that created the victory rolls were curled back away from the face, and the back all curled in the same direction with the tong held vertically, which helped create the rolls at the back

The rolls were created by twisting them around my index finger and rolling them in towards the scalp, then securing with grips and hairspray

Hope you like it! 🙂

oh and before I finish, here’s the mood board I had to do first, to present my inspirations and materials I was going to use.


Thanks for reading!!

Have a lovely weekend



Christmas Hair Project

Hey readers,

As some of you may know I started officially training as a hairdresser in September I’ve always done friends, families and my own hair, but never had any qualifications to do it professionally

Its going really well, and I’m a third of the way in

As of yesterday we have broke up for Christmas, but before we broke up we had a Christmas Hair up Project / Competition

we had to do a mood board and design and create a Christmas up do, I decided on a halo braid around the head, and to dress it like a Christmas wreath, with greenery, Poinsettias and battery operated fairy lights

the most difficult part was hiding the battery pack for the fairy lights :\

well, anyway here is my mood board….


…..and here is the finished piece….


I only wish I could do this to my own hair!!

Merry Christmas !!!
