So I gave it a go ladies...and it actually worked! I had to have a few practices before the real deal...and go back and watch the bit about the fringe/ bangs like 5 times...and my hair is a good double the length of the girls in the video...so it was a bit difficult to begin with...
but it worked!
a nice side view..
I took the back part down when I got home but kept the top bit in and wore it to church this morning...partly because I didn't have time to get up and wash my hair and partly cause it still looked OK! (the photo is pretty cruddy though!)We went to the shops and 2 ladies in the jewellery shop commented how much they liked it! :)
Verdict: definite winner...can't wait til my next rockabilly/rock and roll/ 50's night so I can fix my hair like this again!
