Vintage hair style how-to from Super Kawaii Mama

Super Kawaii Mama — aka Candice Deville — is a maven of mid-mod fashion in Australia, and she recently prepared this video showing us how to create a simple vintage style hair roll up do. The video is mesmerizing. Not only is Candice’s skin perfect and her Australian accent so alluring, but the video step-by-step actually makes creating this vintage hair style look pretty easy. My hair is long enough. And I think that Missouri Michael’s will be soon, too. You can keep your finger on the pulse of mid-mod Australian fashion at Super Kawaii Mama’s blog here.

    I’ve never known how to do the front part, but I have a tool that helps to flip the ponytail through. I’ve had it for years but haven’t used it in forever. A very 40s style!

    Oh thanks so much Pam! I’m very flattered to be linked here. 🙂
    Let me know how this style works out for you as I’m always interested to see whether what I reccommend is translating for people.
    Keep and eye out for a new basic retro makeup tutorial in the coming week too. 🙂

    So funny that you posted these because I added a whole bunch of tutorials to my favorites on YouTube just a couple of weeks ago!

    I appreciate SKM and all the others out there willing to demonstrate hair and makeup techniques. Very cool of you.

    A few years ago there was a product called the Topsy Tail? And it was a big plastic needle that helped you thread your ponytail (like she’s doing). So, if anyone needs help-you might look for that item to help.
    I used to have the long hair to do this. Now it’s shorter, but I can still do a french twist (another classic–very madmen!).
    Is there anything about snoods???

    LOL Pam! You won’t believe this, but I got it trimmed up this weekend and got rid of the curls. I had to have my driver’s license renewed, and didn’t want to have 6 years where my picture had long curly hair!
