Welcome to the 3rd installment of What the new book is. If you are just getting here, you can check out the 1st blog post in this series here.
If you have been thinking about purchasing the new 3rd Edition of Vintage Hairstyling: Retro Styles with Step-by-Step Techniques, but want to know more about it, you have come to the right place! This is the 3rd of 5 blog posts I have written to share some of the information you will find in the book and some of my favorite parts of the book.
If you are unfamiliar with what this book is or what the 2nd edition was, here is a quick synopsis. Vintage Hairstyling is a tutorial book on recreating hairstyles from the 1920s, 1930s, 1940s, 1950s and 1960s with start to finish instructions using hundreds of detailed photographs. The book includes a breakdown of the techniques used in the past, modern equivalent options to achieve the same look, and ideas on combining elements to suit your hair and tons of advice to perfect your skills.
In part 3 of what the new book is I am covering the Volume and Victory Rolls sections of the book.
Volume is good and starts at the root. And volume is something you should consider in every vintage hairstyle. This section covers techniques and hairstyles that make the most of volume. Don’t skip reading this section just because you don’t think you want big hair. There are plenty of tips in here that can help you in other ways.
The classic victory roll has become a staple in the vintage hair world and this section covers everything you need to know to use these rolls in lots of different ways.
The first few pages cover the basic techniques that contribute to what your victory roll looks like and what you can do to perfect your technique so you get great-looking, stable rolls every time.
There are several start-to-finish hairstyles using various roll techniques to create lots of different looks in the rolls section of the 3rd Edition. Using different hairstyling techniques, there are so many possibilities with the simple style concept of rolls.
The Evelyn hairstyle is a carry-over from the 2nd Edition. You will find it in the rolls section, because it uses the basic victory roll for a classic dramatic hairstyle.
