Retro Styles with Modern Techniques
There was something very special and beautiful about women in the early- to mid-20th century. The way they dressed was elegant and the way they wore their hair was feminine. Lauren Rennells has taken hairstyles from the 1930s, 40s and 50s and broken them down into simple, easy-to-follow instructions. “Vintage Hairstyling: Retro Styles with Modern Techniques” is the first book of its kind.
Not only a manual, it is also fun to read. The “Finished Styles” chapter of the book contains coffee table book quality images of models with their finished hairstyles. Interesting facts about the history of hairstyling, origins of styles and information about starlets and performers who made the styles popular are sprinkled throughout the book. This 164-page full-color book has six main chapters. The book begins with the basics of styling and works its way back to advanced techniques. It also provides information on makeup, nails and accessories for a finished look.
Hair and makeup artist Lauren Rennells works in the photography and film industry. She freelances providing unique designs for advertisements, film and television.
