Hamilton_Honey, you and your snood are adorable, makes me wish I could crochet
Hamilton Honey, your snood looks great; I really like the pattern you crocheted into it. The green of your snood and dress, the reddish tint of your hair and your peaches-and-cream complexion, set off by the creamy passion flower...you look so put-together and elegant!
Thank you for the sweet compliments! If you PM me with your email address I'll be happy To send you the pattern!
You're so sweet! Thank you for the nice compliments.
I wold just love to make one up for you in red! PM me with your email address and we can work out the details.
As for keeping snoods on, i don't put elastic in mine - I use the yarn to draw it up to where I want it and then use vintage bobby pins to secure it (they are stronger than newer ones) But i would also suggest trying some hair combs - get one or two smallish ones and sew to front of snood with teeth facing to back of your head and slide them into hair when you put it on. Add a few bobby pins to make more secure, and I think it may work well for you.
ShooShooBaby: My hair is about 2" past my shoulders. when wearing snoods, I find it helps for my hair to be curly or at least back-combed a little to help fill it out.
Thank you, Goldwyn Girl!
Ok - now I'm blushing! Thanks for the kind words!
I'll be posting in the Classifieds soon for those who would like to order a custom made snood...
Here is me in my snood, I dont have short enough bangs so I cant curl them up, I started growing them out and now im conflicted! but tell me...do you think I would look good with the bangs? in your oppinion.
this is the bangs I want to get, but Im soo scared they wont look good!
FYI.... I love that look too. Xept when I love it its on Betty Page and not that flippy-wannabee I see everywhere. Anyhoo... I did get the cut knowing that it might be a challenge cuz I've got very wavy hair. Its really hard to keep up. You are forever fixing them. And I had to get trimmed every other week. I think you have a very nice soft face. You're features aren't harsh like the bone structure on Betty and fakebetty. I think you would do well with a soft bang or even a long bang (long meaning it starts at the crown and straightens down.
FYI, no need to get personal. There are a lot of gals here who are great pin-up models. They do everything from Betty Page to Betty Grable, and they look great doing it. They aren't "flippy-wannabes", they are fans of the classic pin-up gals and their modeling is often an homage to them, their style, the era. I know you're not making generalizations about any certain person here or outside of the lounge who is into Betty, or any of the other pin-ups. You seem to like the look, if you're contemplating the hair style. But, making rude comments and getting personal about a person, whether they are an active member of the lounge or not, isn't fair at all. You never know when Bernie Dexter might drop by the lounge, or if any of the many pin-ups that are members here might be a good friend of hers. It's a general rule here that if we don't like a certain person we keep it to ourselves. Especially when said person doesn't even have the opportunity to defend themselves in regards to such harsh comments.
Please don't take any of this the wrong way, it's just if one person starts expressing such a dislike for another person on a public forum, it might add fuel to the fire. This thread is about snoods, not about who we might like or dislike. Please remember that your comments can be seen by a great deal of people, including the person you're making the comment about and/or their friends.....
As for snoods, I thought once my hair grew out I'd be able to wear one. They are perfect for the summer especially. Nothing worse than having all my hair on the back of my neck when it's 90 degrees and humid But, even though I seem to have a lot of hair, it still doesn't fill out a snood. I thought I could finally get rid of my "fonytail", but it looks like I"m gonna have to hold onto it. It's the only way my snoods look OK[huh]
Is the 'fake Bettie' and the 'flippy-wannabe' that you refer to, Bernie Dexter (as pictured above)? I actually find that quite offensive as Bernie is a friend of mine and one of the loveliest ladies I know. I think it a rather shallow attitude to judge someone merely on their appearance.
Bernie is not a Bettie-wannabe and did in fact, adopt her own look long before she had even heard of the lovely Bettie Page. Just as many dark haired women who have a fringe and wear 1950s fashions (including myself) have and will continue to do. Bearing a resemblance to a person does not necessarily indicate blatant imitation...I'm sure the majority of men here are not trying to be Cary Grant, despite wearing their hair and dressing in a similar fashion.
Fair enough ladies. Lets keep this thread on snoods and free of harsh critique.
I always liked the way the ladies wear snoods with those riding hats. Very elegant. Snood-it's a funny name isn't it!!
Sorry to bring up again, but I think Bernie looks fabulous. I'm even thinking of buying some stuff off her website. She always looks good.
Thanks for the advice, I cut my bangs a week ago, its really hard to keep them looking good and the lady who cut them cut them so they get shorter on the sides instead of same all the way across. BUt im trying to work with it! I have pics on my myspace, myspace.com/siegedasith
if you dont have myspace i can post them on here
Hamilton, so cute!
I just found a knitting pattern for a snood from an old old magazine, I was thinking about making one. If it works out, would anyone want one? It doesn't look too hard to make. ( I say that now )
Why go to all this trouble when you can get a box of plastic SPOONS, turn them upside down, and you have SNOOdS.
Thanks, Miss Lucy!
I'm sure a knitted style would be very cute too! Let us know how it comes out.
Let's see...if I turn about 24 of them upside down and glue them together.....
I wore my snood from Retro L'amour Saturday, and it got me a ride in this Model A roadster... (its owner liked the outfit)
Yay to the power of the snood!
I love snoods, but I have bobbed 1920's style haircut, is there any way to "fake" the 1940's look of a snood with a bobbed hair cut?
