Hey Humu -

I have been DYING to find the info on this, too... I've seen a lot of sites that tell you how to do the various styles, but I'm so inept hair-wise (not to mention that my hair has 2 modes FLAT and STRAIGHT) that I'd probably need someone to actually show me how to curl and tease properly. May I suggest a fashion session for next Tiki Oasis? Vintage Girl? Cherry Capri? Can anybody help us have bitchin' tiki hair?

And Traderpup - HA HA HA. I already know how to do that one...

I've seen several books on the subject-here's one
http://www.1940.co.uk/history/books/40hair/40hair.htm
try a search at Amazon. I don't have any books but do have flat super strait hair. I have a really short bob with some long layers cut ( a simple cut for any hairstylist). I curl it often to get the "vintage look" I use steam rollers, it takes me 15 min max. and lasts a long time. It's a very easy fix to strait flat hair.

Damn right it is!

Once you go crew cut, there's no going back. It's like freedom. And I used to be a long hair.

Sabu...tiki-bot...all you other balding centralites- back me up on this!

And just ask Otto. Imagine- nobody would give him the time of day if he had hair: "Why, who does this hirsute fool think he he is, with all his hair and tikis?" Oh, no- It's the magic shine of that gleaming dome that makes you stand up and take notice!

Maybe, if Hanford opens up the photo archive again, I'll post my magic high school mullet. Never was there a finer chick-repellant than that aqua-net filled disaster.



In fact, a thread of TC high school portraits would be fantastic. I guarantee you there would be howls-a-plenty.

Yeah... especially for us younger TC'ers. ('97 H.S. grad). Oh man, remember the late nineties? What was I thinking with my... 21st century generic unable to escape square parental influence hairstyle. yeah.

It's just me, with more hair (or so I say), and a tux on.

That's great, girls! I'll have to keep watching this link to see if any great tips or websites come up. I also have the "fine hair" that just seems to have a mind of it's own in humidity or with any type of moisture in the air.
Thanks again and I hope to meet some of you at the next Tiki gathering..... especially Humuhumu when she moves out here to Sunny California. Living here means you have to attend the next Tiki Farm tiki bash.

Hey! Who you callin "balding"? I CHOOSE to wear my hair shor....eh, who'm I kiddin'. I pretty much started losing it as soon as I had to get a real job and support myself somehow. Funny how that'll do it to ya, especially as an artist.

HumuHumu,

I think this is the type of hairsetter Laney uses:
http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=38088&catid=20&brand=9729&aid=334009&aparam=caruso_hairsetter

I haven't tried it myself yet, but I do like Laney's results with it. You can also buy extra rollers for it too.

I also have stick straight hair cut in a bob. I use good old-fashioned foam rollers. I roll my hair damp with a little styling gel in it and let it dry overnight. Or you can pick up a dryer (the kind you sit under) at a beauty store and speed up the drying. This kind of curl will basically last for days or until you wet it again. That's why women in the 50's would go to the hair salon once a week, then maintain the style the rest of the time. (Women didn't usually wash their hair everyday then like we often do now.)

Another method is pincurls where you curl damp hair around your finger and pin it. Again, it would have to dry before taking out the pins. (My mom used this method in the 50's to do her Gina Lollobrigida 'do.)

Basically, there is a little trial and error involved no matter what method you choose. Just remember, the bigger the roller, the looser the curl. A set of foam rollers is dirt cheap at the beauty supply, but the steam rollers are still very affordable too.

Also, don't underestimate the glamour of the bob. While I fully understand the desire to curl one's straight hair, a well cut bob can be equally alluring. Here's my favorite example of a 50's bob:


Cyd Charisse knocking the hat off Gene Kelly


Showing the styling of the side and back.

Keely Smith also wore a bob in the 50's, but with spiky bangs.

Let us know what you try and how you like it so we can all share in the knowledge of glamour.

That dark brown bob was exactly what I was sporting a couple of years ago... very Louise Brooks. Remind me to whip out the old ID at the next event & I'll show you... pretty mind blowing compared to the barbie bs I have going right now.

So what I'm aiming to achieve right now is very structured 40sish Andrews Sisters-type curves, like the blond chick from the infamous Mondo bikini contest. I set my hair in hot rollers pretty regularly, but I do it to get a softer look. I haven't played with bobby pins to anchor the curls... is that all it would take to achieve this sort of look?

Re: the bald look... I totally agree, but I dont quite have the cranium to pull the look off. Those of you who do, continue to rock on.

I have occasionally come across vintage 50's and 60's hairstyling magazines, but I sold them on Ebay because my hair is verrrry short and also, and more importantly, they go for big bucks. But you could check and see if there are any going cheaper these days - seems the bottom is falling out of the Ebay market....
