I have the ratting part down, but I never know how to get the tangles out when I am done. Should I just brush thru it, regardless of pain, or is there a better way.

2 Cherie { 07.23.08 at 8:05 am }

What a great contest – I want Rita Hayworth hair just like the picture so I guess I am a 40’s girl at heart!

3 Julie { 07.23.08 at 8:57 am }

My favorite style is the short look that Elizabeth Taylor wore in Cat On A Hot Tin Roof, Marilyn rocked that look pretty well too.

4 Patti { 07.23.08 at 9:27 am }

Great- the new book looks really interesting. I love the 40’s hairstyles but was never really able to accomplish the look when I had long hair. Of course, I also love the Audrey Hepburn hair with her little bangs and short cut.

5 Julie { 07.23.08 at 9:41 am }

The 70’s! Gotta love that wild hair.

6 Living*Doll*Vintage { 07.23.08 at 10:00 am }

I just love the look of rows of finger waves~ 20’s perhaps?
Absolutely impossible with naturally curly, wavy, obstinate hair~

7 Jo { 07.23.08 at 10:06 am }

My favorite decade is the 1930s. I love the elegance of pincurls and fingerwaves. I’m in love with Tallulah Bankead’s photo in a 1931 Vanity Fair magazine I found. :)
My question is: I’ve been trying to reproduce a pincurl look with HotStix. Even with wrapping the ends and using a setting lotion–I can still never get the curls to lay into nice waves. It always seems to get into a bushy mess of tight curls that takes forever to start to relax. Do I need more setting lotion? Am I just not patient enough brushing it out? (I guess that is 2 questions!) Any advice would be very much appreciated! Thank you!

8 Mary { 07.23.08 at 10:39 am }

Hello, and thanks for this opportunity. My vote’s for the sixties. Why?
Well, because everything, from long-straight-and parted in the middle, to curled updos, to bouffant flips were available.
Me like variety!

9 Justine { 07.23.08 at 1:40 pm }

I’m a huge fan of 30’s pincurls, too. They always look so elegant and yet so hard to do. I’d love to win this book and learn how to do them!

10 hazel { 07.23.08 at 4:03 pm }

1940s for sure! So many soft looking pretty waves

11 Jenn { 07.23.08 at 7:54 pm }

I would love to get the standard rockabilly (non Betty) 40s style to my hair, with the big rolls at the top, pulled back with the back let down in fat curls.
I have tight corkscrew curl hair halfway down my back, mostly one length…why? Because I don’t know what else to do with it! Short hair makes me look too butch. Eeek!

12 Maggie { 07.23.08 at 8:19 pm }

This is so great, I’m delighted to see a new book out on vintage hairstyles. Even if I don’t get lucky and win, I will try to pick up this book as soon as possible.
My whine, er, question is this: What direction would you go if you were a woman that modeled vintage clothing of all eras. Is there a great basic vintage cut, or could there be such a thing? I figure the median year of what I sell is about 1962, and I sell items from Victorian to 80s. What is an adaptable cut in your estimation?

13 Apple { 07.23.08 at 9:24 pm }

This is so great! My favorite hairstyle is the likes of Brigitte Bardot. What decade is that in anyway. I wasn’t born by then hehe. :)

14 Carol { 07.23.08 at 10:17 pm }

I am a big fan of the 1940s look, especially film noir! The styles are so feminine and sexy!
My question is: What is the best way to keep your hair healthy when regularly wearing vintage dos? (My hair is especially prone to heat damage and breakage.)

15 bunny { 07.24.08 at 1:08 am }

I love the style in the 40s or was it 50s? Those waves are great! I love it because my current natural hair would perfectly fit into that decade! :P

16 bunny { 07.24.08 at 1:32 am }

I love the style in the 40s or was it 50s? Those waves are great! I love it because my current natural hair would perfectly fit into that decade! :P

17 Ngirl { 07.24.08 at 4:17 am }

I like 1950’s updos, though I can’t say I’ve ever really done one well. My problem is that my hair is very straight, so it’s hard for me to create the waves and volume I’d like to have. Is there anything I could do other than ratting it? I have enough length to try something interesting.

18 Lucy Pinto { 07.24.08 at 11:42 am }

I’d love to have the Vintage Book of Hairstyles! What fun it would be to try some different looks. My favorite decade would also be the 1940’s. All those beautiful waves. The Veronica Lake look was lovely. There were also upsweeps that were nice. I also love the rolls that were in some styles. I’d love to know how the rolled hairtstyles were done. Thanks!

19 PandanPuddin { 07.24.08 at 12:24 pm }

I love 50s pageboys and Veronica Lake waves, but it’s only cause I can’t get the volume for a Brigitte Bardot sex kitten look.

20 xochitl(yes, thats my name..) { 07.24.08 at 1:23 pm }

of friend of mine has this book already and im dying to get a copy of it! its been so hard for me to find products, and just the right styling tools for my hairstyles and this book has it all!! hehe..
i love anything from the 1920s and up. from sleek and smooth, sexy and casual, to big and bold! i love it all!
but my question is, what do u think of widows peaks..
i know plenty of people have them, but mine has always made me self conscious..

Definitely the 40’s.

30 Anne { 07.24.08 at 7:19 pm }

For me, personally, I’m rather “hair” attached to the 80s.
Aquanet hairspray, tons of gel, short spiky hair; I loved it all!
One of my daughters that grew up in the 80s hates the pictures of her, just because of how I did her hair lol. I always teased her bangs and sprayed them into place haha…….I thought it looked cute and it was the 80s after all.
Great giveaway!

31 Sharon Fairclough { 07.24.08 at 8:15 pm }

I really love the classic bob from the 20’s.

44 Trish { 07.25.08 at 4:05 am }

I like the 20s Flapper look, the short, sometime permed pincurls. They sure knew how to party and their hair reflected that.

62 Courtney { 07.25.08 at 10:16 am }

I heard in the early 70’s there was a hair cut thatwas called a Gypsy. It was layers on a longer hair… but that’s all I know. Would you please tell me about the cut was so that I can try it out?? Thanks!!!

63 Patty { 07.25.08 at 10:35 am }

1940s would be my favorite

64 Kelly R. { 07.25.08 at 10:40 am }

I would love to try some of the 30’s hairstyles. People always tell me that my grandmother’s teenage photos look eerily similar to my teenage photos, and I’ve always wanted to get the hairstyle to match!

65 valerie mabrey { 07.25.08 at 10:49 am }

I like the big hair 80’s!!!

66 Susan Ledet { 07.25.08 at 11:11 am }

My favorite era would be the 40’s for certain. Such soft beautiful hair during that time.

67 Elizabeth M. { 07.25.08 at 11:49 am }

I absolutely love the hairstyles of the ’40s. I think women had such an innocent and pure beauty about them at that time and the soft shining hair of that decade accentuated that beauty.

68 susan varney { 07.25.08 at 12:03 pm }

The 40’s had some really cool hairdos

89 Lora Colby { 07.26.08 at 8:34 am }

I love Rita Hayworth as an actress and her hair is awesome. So the 1940s were a great decade for Hollywood Hair. Hair was smoother and romantic in the 40s and it was awesome. I always want to do that with my hair!

90 Anita Yancey { 07.26.08 at 9:37 am }

My favorite hair decade was the 80’s. I liked all that big hair.

91 Linda Pinto { 07.26.08 at 9:39 am }

1980’s hair, definately!

95 Robert Abramson { 07.26.08 at 12:59 pm }

If you have a beautiful face your hair style will look great. It won’t matter what style you choose. If you are a bow-wow face a nice hair style won’t help much. If you have a beautiful face and a beautiful body no one is looking at your hair anyway unless it’s shockingly different.

96 Ed Nemmers { 07.26.08 at 1:13 pm }

The Sixties!

97 loki { 07.26.08 at 1:22 pm }

The 60’s. I just like the looks from looking at old photos of my mom and her family from that period.

98 Carolyn Ireland { 07.26.08 at 1:36 pm }

104 Miss M { 07.26.08 at 6:55 pm }

105 A. Ashley { 07.26.08 at 6:55 pm }

I like 1960’s hair.
Not only did they have the straight hippie hair option, but there were also cool Mod hairdos like Twiggy’s short haircut.

106 Patricia Adams { 07.26.08 at 7:12 pm }

era of the ponytail and the beehive great years

107 Storm { 07.26.08 at 7:33 pm }

oh I love the beautiful hair of the 40’s! I wish I could make mine look that beautiful!

108 Sarah Le Blanc { 07.26.08 at 7:35 pm }

Tough call! I love the look of the 40’s, but the Gibson Girl look was equally beautiful on women during Victorian times.

109 Pamela White { 07.26.08 at 8:17 pm }

I like the Katherine Hepburn look. and I’ve seen her with paper curlers. How do I get that look with modern equipment.

110 Chrysa { 07.26.08 at 8:37 pm }

I would have to say the 40s – so many beautiful, classic and feminine looks.

111 Carol Harrity { 07.26.08 at 8:58 pm }

The 40’s definitely made women look sexy and that has to be a plus at any time.

125 Traci C { 07.27.08 at 6:20 am }

Easy question… I just adore the look of the rolls and softness from the 1940s.

126 Gwen Hiles { 07.27.08 at 6:24 am }

I bleach my hair from dark brown to blonde. But in the summer my hair grows fast. I always have roots really showing. How can I go without bleaching so much? And I never wear the right color of lipstick. It looks like my entire face is painted!

127 Teri Meairs { 07.27.08 at 6:42 am }

I love all things vintage. I have been accused of being stuck in the 70’s, I don’t care. I like it here! What a perfect coffee table book! It is certainly worthy of shareing.

128 Ruthann Rhodes { 07.27.08 at 6:47 am }

I have two favorite hairstyle decades. The first is the 40s for the elegant, wavy glamour. The second is the 70s for the shaggy, sexy look. Both are classics in my book!

I like the 40’s.
