The Notebook Fashion and Style Week: Tutorial- Allie's daily hairstyle

Tuesday, September 4, 2012

For today's The Notebook Fashion and Style Week, I have a very simple tutorial for Allie's everyday casual hair style.


 This is a style that I also use pretty frequently. It's quick and easy and isn't as costume-like as victory rolls or huge 40's bangs but you still get a very classic retro hairstyle. Here's how:


Begin with hair parted to one side. I use the center of my brow as a guide. Curl all of your hair under. I'm using Conair Hotsticks but you can use pin curls, a large curling iron or any other curling method that you like





Remove the curlers and using a large, round brush, brush the curl out so it's smooth, shiney and all of your hair curls under



Sweep the front section (the side with the most hair) to the side and pin in place using a hair comb, pins or in Allie's case, a barrette

And finish with a good coat of hair spray....

  2. You look so very pretty! I'll definitely be giving this a try... I'd love to try with hot rollers but not having any, I will attempt it with my trusty ol' curling iron.

  4. That looks so lovely. I'm watching the movie this night. Altough my hair is shorter than yours, I'll try to curl it under with perm rods and wear it to my second day of school :).

  5. How did you get the curls to be big? I have the same curlers and my curls always end up so tight. Maybe I should try again.

    Thanks doll,

  6. It's been a while since I've had a hair cut as well... what kind of cut do you use? In the past I've found that certain cuts lend themselves to easy styling... my current grown out cut (which I wasn't thoroughly happy with to begin with) is a bit of a challenge.

    1. I have a 40's femme fatale right now (with much longer fringe). It seems like any version of the middy curls really well and the curls lay quite nicely!

  7. hmmm, try rolling a larger section of hair. Do you brush your curls out? That helps me a lot because mine end up pretty tight to start with. My kids love to run off with my hot sticks so I only had about half of them for this set so I used pretty big chunks of hair. Let me know if that helps when you try it again! :)

  9. Your hair looks so pretty like this! Mine is so fine and thin that I usually loose all volume and curl if I brush it out (when I do a curl set I just lightly run through it with my fingers and then go to town with the hair spray), but I could try this by just rolling the bottom of my strands (worth a shot at least), taking the curlers out and hoping for the best :)

    1. I know exactly what you mean! My hair won't even take to a perm. :( Sometimes, I apply Lotta Body setting lotion, blow dry, then set with hot rollers and it seems to keep the curl much longer

  10. I am going to try this as i feel that victory rolls can be sometimes too much effort for a daily basis. This hairstyle is classic and still has that retro look without too much effort! Thank you so much for your post

    1. I think that Walmart and Target both carry them. They are by Conair, if that helps. I use them all the time, when I don't have the time for pin curls.

  13. very pretty! it looks so simple to make and the result is beautiful! I'm gonna try it! do you roll all the hotsticks in the same direction?
