My hair has three ‘states of style’.
- A la Naturale (which means quite curly)
- Blow dried
- Pin curled/Vintage
So when I get my hair cut it has to look good all three ways. Thankfully I have a hair dresser who understands both my hair, and my styling needs. I try to stick to one of these, for the vintage styling purposes.

These are the basic shapes of hair cuts through the 1920’s to the 1950’s. I do tend to modify little bits, as I don’t (yet) set my hair every day, and it needs to be flexible (as per my list above). So I’ve gone for a “Baby” cut length around the base, but have left the top of my hair about 6″ long. It’s roughly the shape that Nicole Kidman had in “The Others”. This allows me to wear it ‘natural’ or when I style my hair I can do some barrel curls on top, but still keeps it off my neck and away from my face through the hot months.
I haven’t taken any pictures yet, as it’s been a madhouse between the Boy, the Mister and Spring Cleaning.
