Vintage & Pinup Styles R Wearable Now More than Ever!

Vintage-Hairstyling-book Just out is Lauren Rennells’ Vintage Hairstyling: Retro Styles with Step-by-Step Techniques 2nd Edition ($32.95 @ Choose from more popular styles from the 30s, 40s, 50s and 60s and step-by-step instructions on how to achieve each style. And this one also goes over hair products that are good to use, tools, hair accessories, and even how to do your makeup and how to do your nails from each decade, which I don’t think were in the last book.

Only after I featured the first book on this site and really got into trying more of the styles did I come to the conclusion that one tweak would make this book perfect. Instead of binding the pages, they should be wire bound, like a notebook. That way I can open it comfortably to a specific style and follow the directions and not have to fight to keep it open each time. I actually took apart the 1st edition and secured the pages with a big binder clip. Must easier to use!


And Lauren, I still want you to one day do my hair one day as my arms are killin’ me!



I love this book! I was finally able to do decent rolls with Lauren's help and info. My first edition is dog-eared and I love the 2nd edition even more - more styles, more setting options. She's really given us wonderful info to re-create vintage styles, including quite a few 60's do's!


Hi Inky! Great picture. I too was able to finally get my hair to do what I wanted to with her help. I have a picture on my twitter account -

I have to get this book. I love retro looks: pinup and rockabilly! I even posted some retro inspired looks to my facebook page today. :)
