Scarfs and Rosie the Riveter styled bandanas are my newest weapon against bad hair days. If you don´t have a scarf or cannot find the right color in any secondhand store, you can make one by cutting a similar sized square piece from your t-shirt. Jersey works as well as satin/silk but is less slippery on your head. Just make the curl in front (if you don´t have bangs), pin it and tie a scarf around it. My hair is pretty short in the back so I just do the front curl, but below you can find two videos on how to work scarfs on longer hair. I love to combine this 40´s scarf look with some fake gauge earrings to make the look more rockabilly. Here´s How to tie a 40s headscarf tutorial by Vixen Vintage and a few how-to videos from YouTube.
