'Cant Repeat The Past? Why Of Course You Can' : The Roaring 20's, A Tutorial On An Updated Great Gatsby Pincurl Look

Today I've got a tutorial to bring you, we're take the 1920's iconic pincurl and I'm going to show you how to make it wearable for a day to day summer look.

I love bringing a tutorial so close to my heart this is where I always think Inanity and the Girl lives, knee deep in an era showing you how to do it at home. I adore the 1920's it is my favourite era for style, pincurls, waves, bold eyes, bold lips, debauched parties, progress and prohibition. With The Great Gatsby coming to the cinema this summer I am so excited to see what Lurhmann has done with the story I love. The trailers tell me that the style is going to be amazing, and I am nearly delirious at the soundtrack, Beyonce, Lana del Ray worked in a classic Baz Lurhmann style.

The hair is short, the curls are big, the waves are deep it is going to be DIVINE.

Think the AMAZING Clara Bow and get your wave on!

Today I wanted to show you how to grab the 1920s look that is so massive on the High Street and create your own vintage inspired summer hair. It doesn't matter what your hair length is you can work it.

Here's how to do it with a pair of straighteners

Pull down
Pull down
Pull Down


Repeat throughout your whole hair.


Remember don't start too close to the crown for your top sections 
The tighter your turn the deeper your wave
Using a wide section of hair will create an authentic 1920's look, shake it up for a more relaxed look
Pull your front section down into a longer sweep curl for that really authentic Clara Bow look

I kept the make up really basic:
Benefit Hello Flawless Powder
The Balm Cheater Mascara
NYC Applelicious balm

That's it girls, dead easy, you'll be on trend and rocking the 1920s with your own summer vibe. Perfect for anyone heading to the festivals too as curls stay in nicely.

Now check out the new amazing Gatsby trailer.

Much Love and Pincurls
