Today when I awoke, my hair was a riot of curls...going to bed with a wet head tends to do that in my case...so I chose to take advantage of my curly hair. I broke out the curling iron and curled the top and back of my hair and smoothed out the side "wings" that flip foward. Then I dug out my fabulous (if sadly shattering) wide antique, silk floral ribbon and fashioned it into a 1920s hair bandeau! After making sure it looked good over my fore head, I tied it into a bow in the back and began to position the curls over the ribbon in the fashion of photographs from the 1920s...those ladies were so beautiful with their scarf and ribbon bandeaus! Then of course I had to take pictures and play with said pictures to get the affect of the photographs from back then! The vintage images below can be seen here:

|I love this hand tinted photograph! The bandeau reminds me of mine!|
|Fun twisted bandeau!|
I had a little bit too much fun playing with the photo editing program! I chose a "tinted", black and white, and sepia toned image to share! I can't wait for the opportunity to wear my hair bandeau style! It will be great fun!
Now it is time to get back to folding laundry and getting dinner ready! I hope you all have a fabulous week my lovely friend!
