So, if you’ve been following me, you’d know I’m a Disney Bounder. If you don’t know, the means I dress up like a Disney character every day for work.
I’ve been wanting to dabble into Dapper Bounding. Dapper Bounding is still dressing like a character but in a vintage sort of way.
The whole pin up style has always been a thing I love but have never had the courage (or money) to try.
This coming up Friday, I am going to Dapper Bound as Mulan. I have the dress and shoes ready, but my hair. That was the problem. My hair is a struggle for me. It’s frizzy and kinky and weird. So, would it be possible for me to get that vintage Look?
Yes! A few YouTube videos and some Bobby pins later and I had my first set of victory rolls. You could say they were a victory for me.
So, this is what I did. I took a section of hair from the front of my head. Not too much because my hair is long and thick. (That’s what she said, hahaha) I made a loop at the end and rolled the hair towards the back of my head, with my fingers still in the loop. The challenge was keeping it straight and tight. When it got closer to my head I turned it so the roll was flat on my head. And then I pinned it on the inside with two pins.
I repeated the same thing on the other side. It was a little easier because there was less hair.
Then I just took a ponytail holder and tied a high tail up.
I will definitely try to add a scarf and curl my hair next time. For now, I’m super excited by how this came out.
Have you ever tried a vintage style? How did it turn out?
