How to look glamorous whilst setting vintage hair styles
To make vintage curls and waves, and keep them in shape, we often have to sleep in curlers/pin curls. Doesn't matter how good the initial setting is, some curls will go limp and lose bounciness during the day. Especially hair on the side of the face, and at the back. They therefore have to be reset at night.
Hair setting should be ideally done in private. Not only was it considered rude and very unattractive for a woman to be seen in public with her curlers or pin curls still in her hair. At home, they were also recommended to spare their husband and family members with this unsightly view! Yes I am looking at you Christina Aguilera.
So what do we do?
At night, you can still look lovely and cute by using a ruffled night cap or light turban to conceal those unsightly curlers and pins!
But what if curls aren't quite set and you need to go out in public during the day?
The solution is to conceal it with attractive covering. A light weight fabric is ideal as it allows for air to penetrate and dry hair. A chiffon scarf, or a turban will be lovely during the day. Also perfect for those bad hair days!
