Now the good news for my fellow fine haired girls is that back in the early 60's the volume was often helped along with the addition of extra hair, rats and falls. Browsing the web the other day I ran into a neat 60's hair piece and was inspired to make my own for that Holloway hair!
|60's Hair Piece|
A few years ago I made a couple of falls out of human hair to get some nice big puffy pigtails, and this week I re-dyed one and styled it up to hopefully match the 60's originals.
From the photos it looks pretty close. To wear the plan is to put a little bit of my hair up in a bun and pin the piece over the top, then curl the rest of my hair and bobby pin the curls up around my little pre-prepared pouf!

I used to love using things like this because it not only helps with hair envy and finally being able to get the looks i want, but also because they are typically a snap to use! The hair style always looks like it took hours, but in fact it usually only takes 5 minutes or so to complete since the heavy lifting is done ahead of time.
I'm looking forward to practicing a few styles with this fella, and hope to be able to write up a tutorial on how to make and use them for any one else out there interested in early 60's hair, or just pumping up their fine hair.
In the meantime I'm going to get back to work, but more on this topic soon!
