V120: 1912 Titanic Ball, Hair Stylings

Apr 30, 2012 10 comments

I just got back from The Other Side of the Mountains (Californialand), and my trip down to Gaskells Victorian Ball.  It was an amazing evening, full of beautiful 1912 gowns that I will show you in tomorrow's post.

I did my hair before I drove down.  It survived the all-day journey decently well, all though the extra weight and at least a hundred bobby pins took their toll and caused some headache-y-ness.

Anywho, here's the finished style.  This was done by curling my real hair in front, then piling up a hair piece in back, in big rolls pinned into place.  I used a stretchy bead bandeau I found at Sally Beauty Supply, as well as one those beaded double-comb thingies (like this one ).


  1. That is so pretty! I can't wait to see your dress on you! Your projects are so beautiful.

  2. Gorgeous! What a wonderful job.

  3. All that extra lovely hair might have added a little weight to your head, but I suspect the stretchy bandeau was the real culprit as those things seem to get tighter and tighter as the night goes on.

    1. I think you're right - that and that stretchy beaded double comb thing. /sore
