Retro Hair: Finger Waves

3:15 PM Posted by Mish Dish

(dress: Badgley Mischka, wrap: Adrienne Landau, jewelry: vintage)

Inspired by the finger wave of the 1930s and most recently worn by Reese Witherspoon in the movie Water for Elephants. I found myself pinching hair between my fingers transforming my blunt bob into a soft glamorous up do.

Next I'll try wearing this do with a casual outfit consisting of wide leg jeans, a white blouse and wedges to really mix up my spring style.

Wishing you all a fabulous weekend!
