Vintage hairstyles, non-vintage haircuts
I have a question for everyone. I am currently in the process of growing my hair. I really want to have it long, which I haven't for years, and it is currently in a very blunt shoulder-length growing-out-a-bob style with a fringe (or bangs).
Now, this cut really doesn't lend itself well to vintage styles, but I've been in the growing for so long, and I have thin hair, so I am unwilling to get the requisite layers cut in that I really need to make vintage styles work, especially as for me, a full authentic vintage look is a special occasion more than an everyday thing. However, when I do get vintagified I have real issues doing anything authentic with my hair.
What I was wondering is:
1) who else has, or has had at some point in the past, a non-vintage cut, and how did they get around this? If you have been in this position, what styles did (or do) you put your hair in to try and create authentic vintage looks without having the proper cut?
I'm curious about any hairstyles really, and photos (especially before and after) would be great!
I don't think there has been a thread on this before, but if there has, bartenders, please feel free to merge me!
