Hair Tutorial | The Rockabilly Double-roll

Happy Friday Eve guys! Is that a thing? a few of you sweet people wished that to me last week and I realized it made me excited, because it made the weekend feel like it was already happening! haha Alright I need to get back on track:) Today's hair tutorial was shot like a month ago almost and I posted it on Instagram, so I'm very excited to finally be sharing it with you, and I hope you love it as much as I do! As per usual with my photo tutorials I go into very descriptive detailing so you'll be sure and get it right the first time (vague tutorials are the worst don't you think?), so don't be intimidated by all the text and photos! This was a style that'd been in my head for a while, but this tutorial was my first time doing it and it only took me about 15 minutes! Also you can probably pull this off if your hair is at least to your shoulders, so if you love it I hope you give it a try! Tools & Supplies: teasing comb // pins or clips // hair-tie // bobby pins // 1" curling iron // hairspray Steps 1-4: Start by choosing a side part above your right eye and smoothing your hair with a teasing brush. Using your new part as a divider, draw a ling with the pointy end of your brush from the top of one ear to the top of the other making two sections, and clipping those up for later. Brush the rest of your hair into a high ponytail, twist it clockwise, spray with hairspray, and twist clockwise around the base to create a bun. Pin down the sides and fluff a bit if desired. Steps 5-8: Un-clip the right section (should be smaller than the left), and twist it all up into one big curl around your 3/4-1 inch curling iron. tuck it as close to your head as you can, and than start clamping and releasing as you gently tug the iron out of the curl with one hand, keeping it all together with your other hand. Once the iron is totally out, press the curl to your head and pin it in place, leaving the top of the 'tube' in tact and pinning the bottom flat. Steps 9-12: Separate the left section in half with a horizontal line. Tease the roots of the top half a bit and smooth it with your teasing brush. Spray for hold. Take the bottom half of your section and curl it upwards horizontally around your iron, spray, and do the same clip-and-release technique to get your iron out while maintaining your roll. Pin that in place and move to the top and last section! Steps 13-16: Smooth both sides of the section with your teasing brush. Curl the hair around your iron again in a nice wide curl, this time curling upwards as well, and repeat the clamping and release cycle to get your iron out for the last time:) Rest the curl directly on top of your first one, and pin it securely in place, from the inside to the outside. Tug some flyaways out a bit if you wish, spray it all down with your favorite hairspray, and you're good to go! (excuse the deer-in-headlights look:) I needed this angle of the style! haha) Again I hope that the photos and text make the process more clear and don't confuse you, but feel free to ask any questions at all if you have them! Also since so many people have been asking lately, I've decided to just go ahead and make a little graphic of the tutorial for Pinterest:) Thanks so much as always for visiting and reading, and I hope you come back again soon!

Monday Morning Inspiration

Like so many of you, I save a lot of pictures for inspiration. If you want to create beautiful things, it's important to look at everything you can get your hands on as you never know what will spark a little creativity. The first picture is one that I found last week and labeled it, "I Love This!!" I put it in Google images and tried to find its origination, but with no luck. I would love to see the finished garment, so if someone is a little better than I am about finding things, please let me know and I'll post the finished pictures. But for now, isn't this beautiful?!!! Be sure to take a minute or so and really look at the piece as the seam lines are so very interesting. A few weeks back, I did an inspiration post on buttonholes. I found this picture a little later, but I thought you would enjoy it nonetheless. Again, take a close look as the little bias pieces around the buttons as they are finished with thread arrows. What a gorgeous idea for a coat lining. Take a look at this sleeve. And this one. I don't know that I would ever do it, but it is interesting. This sleeve I will be doing. It is just so pretty and delicate. This coat is actually from the late 1800's. I would wear this today in a heartbeat, although I think I would prefer not to have the crocheted twists at the hem. I missed posting this dress when I did the 1960's post, but what a fun little dress! Not for everyone, but still fun. For those who enjoy repurposing, check out this top. It looks like 3 different sweaters were used to create this piece. I love the lines of this skirt. What a fun stripe project this would be. Vintage garments and patterns are always a great source of inspiration. Look closely at this piece. The top actually wraps around to the back closure. Beautifully done. Now, for one of the most disgusting things I've seen in a while...oh my goodness what was this designer thinking???? Sorry about that. I didn't mean to make you spit out your morning coffee ;) But then again, even bad design can spark an idea....maybe. Have a wonderful, inspiration filled week! Rhonda
