a fancy tutorial



I am utterly hopeless when it comes to doing my own hair so I'm always eager to learn from gals who have a knack for it. Shana Astrachan of Fox & Doll is basically a hair wizard with a penchant for vintage styles, and she makes me look extra super fancy in the video tutorial above. The style is a 1960's mini bouffant with a low ponytail and it's basically my dream hair. I was even able to stretch the look out over a few days with the help of some dry shampoo and my hot rollers. I think it would be fun to do a makeup tutorial next, something with an exaggerated cat eye perhaps. I have another video up my sleeve that I will share with you next week but it has nothing to do with hair or makeup or anything vintage, it's just pure silliness.
