Most people are drawn to vintage hollywood stars because of their fame and fortune, success, beauty, style and fashion. But for me I'm most attracted to busy shopping malls to look more like Elizabeth Taylor in a "Vintage White Dress" but three hours gone. I'd leave empty handed. Don't worry there is still hope with vintage fashion in my guide.

My Easy Guide to Achieving the Vintage Hollywood Look

Vintage hairstyles can be created with heat or you can use your fingers, pins or hair spray. When your deciding on unique vintage updo's for work, going out at nighttime or for special occasions try finding some inspiration on utube.

At the moment, I'm really into elegant hairstyles I feel more suited to having my hair pulled up and neatly styled.(Loving the lauren loose updo) it must be that "old Hollywood glamour" that leaves me with luxurious.

Did you know that ? "The typical vintage woman means look to the past". My grandma used to have those old vintage dress patterns. I would often dream what it was like to live in the 1940s era for their fashion looked "Oh so posh" but now I'm actually intriged.

I often quote: "Once old now new again" fashion is always renewing I'm inspired by sweet, feminine vintage dresses and hair in retro, updo's with pin curls and many more uniquely styles. I love history to repeat it's self.

I love researching some of my creative vintage hairstyles online, its very easy. You'll find plenty of ideas, look for your own style. A lot of my inspiration comes from pictures and celebrities, usually I'll find what's hot and what's not or just whatever that has the protenial to make me look stunning.

Once you have the hair go out and buy yourself a dress, you can look the royal life with an ruffle dress, freshen up with pretty flowers or love up with red. Also be sure to take a look at my vintage hair, makeup and shoes tutorials. Enjoy! :)

      Audry Hepburn was a such a classical movie star like her-

      "I admire and look for the good in others, speak only words of kindness and walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.”
