Always wanted to know how to do look like a glamorous forties Hollywood diva or how to create a sixties ‘Amy’ beehive? This book shows you how to do all the hairstyles of the thirties, forties, fifties and sixties.
With clear, step-by-step instructions, the book explains how to use tongs and different kinds of rollers and how to master the pin curl. The book focusses on fantastic 40’s and 50’s hairdos – victory rolls, waves and pompadours, the fake fringe (bangs) – and shows more than twenty hairstyles called like “The Vixen”, “The Casino Wife” and “For The Boys.” If that wasn’t enough, there’s also tips on accessorising with scarves, flowers and hats.
Some fabulous images from the book:

Last week I received my dress from store Very Cherry (I blogged about the store earlier!), and it turned out to be a dress from Heartbreaker Fashion. Heartbreaker Fashion is made in California by Teresa Becker and her baby girl, Amanda Marie. In January of 2005, the mother-daughter duo combined their talents and aspirations to create a retro-influenced clothing line featuring classic designs which encompass an everlasting fashion statement: CUTE!
Teresa has been designing for manufacturers and stores since 1978. Additionally, she is a fashion design instructor at the college level. When Amanda decided to come up with the Heartbreaker concept, it was a natural to work as a team to provide the experience and ingenuity that are the essential ingredients of this company.
So I absolulty love this website and the clothes they make! Im sure gonna order another dress from them!
this is the dress I got, very cherry indeed!
