Am I right in remembering you as being a lover of all things 1930's and 1940's?  Do you know about a site called the Fedora Lounge?  I just discovered it the other day and am having a blast looking over all of the vintage hairstyle photos other members have posted.

Grin  I can't believe I've only seen this thread now. Embarrassed  

Erh...20s-50s, mainly 50s, 50s hair on everyone else.  It's fantastic what you can do with pin curls and a middy really is the ideal haircut for so many styles if you desire a cut you with lots of styling options, just leave my hair out of it. Wink  Played with retro styles for a while when I still had layers.  I want to buy a 50s book I think is called: 'How To Handle Long Hair'.   I fear that unless I find my own way of modifying the styles in the book, they probably require a lot of hair torture too.

I've seen long, smooth updos on women in all the golden era decades and while they may not have been the trendiest hairstyles they were era correct and I wish I could make the other members more interested in these hairstyles but they tend to ignore my posts on them so. Undecided

It's hard to admire a shorter hairstyle on someone else and not give into the itch to go shorter at times, especially when my hair acts up.  I just remind myself that there's no such thing as a lazy day with shorter hair, especially not with my hair texture and my hair has to be long enough to collapse on itself unless I want a punky style because my scalp doesn't really appreciate styling products of any kind.   Never mind I can't afford the maintenance trims and all the extra styling stuff either.

So long hair is the way I go. Smiley

No worries, my dear.  I'd forgotten about posting this message!   Grin 

I--let's see, how can I say this nicely?  From most of the members at FD, I get a sense of snobbishness.  A lot of them seem to have the money to throw at their hobby of period dressing.  Nothing wrong with that, or their enjoyment of same.  But I felt excluded the few times I tried to post or make comments.  So while I still peruse FD for some reference facts, I stick to more friendly forums like good ol' LongLocks.   Wink

The exact words I would use!  I can't put it more politely either.  I have a very vintage lifestyle Wink as a homemaker in a one income household but not the financial means, single lifestyle, or time to look authentic vintage.  Right now I can't even afford a very needed trim. Sad

I forgot what board this was in and just deleted a long irrelevant post.
