Amateur Hour!

Somebody (and by somebody I mean Emma of Emma's Music ) asked if I would do a tutorial of the Betty Grable hair. It was sweet of her, and let's face it, I've got some free time....for about a week, and then I'm off to finish my formal education. I'm bad at editing and it took forever but it was fun. I'm not a perfectionist by any means so the look isn't perfect but it came out alright, I think. Hope you enjoy!

The steps are simple.
Damp hair, rolled up and tied with rags...let dry (I did this overnight...but still went to the grocery store with a turban on....looking quite flamboyant).
Comb it out nicely or not, depending on your preference.
Do a French twist type number in the back, pile the curls on top of your head, as far forward as you like, arrange them, sticking pins wherever necessary, add garnish wherever you see fit.
