If you've decided to go vintage for New Years Eve and happen to be in a flap regarding your hair then I have the perfect little tutorial for you!
Or if you're not overly adventurous with your hair, want to try something new but haven't the skill for anything elaborate then fear not. This is such a simple method for a 1940's style set I actually winged it the first time I tried it.
What you will need:
Depending on how thick / long your hair is a few packs of Velcro Rollers such as these
You can pick rollers like this up for just 69p in Savers or you can buy them on Ebay (picture sourced from this seller)
A round styling brush. Ideally you'd want a more bristled round brush, softer than the one I used here. And a hairdryer.
Don't forget your hairspray and if you've got it? Setting lotion, though I didn't use any here.
You can get fiddly with this style. You can be meticulous with your roller placement etc but honestly? It doesn't really need it. You can also choose to blowdry in more volume if you'd prefer. That's for next time ;)
Pop your rollers in
Tie your barnet up in a scarf for around 15 minutes, give or take, always depends on how much time you've got.
Remove scarf and blowdry your hair (still in rollers), ensure that your hair is dry, then remove velcro rollers.
Brush through your rollered hair, brushing it into shape around your face
Wait wait! There's more!!
Using just 4 products, that do not cost the earth, you've your makeup covered too!

Red lipstick, the name and brand has worn off this one though I'm pretty certain it's by Avon

You literally could throw this look together in less than 20 minutes AND fit in a cuppa or a glass of bubbly as you go along! Can't be bad to that!
Have a very Happy New Year folks!
