Hot Sticks Set

GEE!!! The weather has been horrible these past few days. I am surprised I haven't floated away! Trees are falling all over town. power is going out. TORNADO WARNINGS in Orange County... SCARY! So with that being said I have spent A LOT of time at home. I've been lurking on the Fedora Lounge reading all of the threads... Boy do I have a lot to learn.... Some of these ladies have so much vintage knowledge its incredible. I ran across the talk about these Hot sticks and had to have them!



I normally set my hair in sponge rollers (not so comfortable) or I do a curling iron pin curl set So I was excited to try something different. First set was HORRIBLE! I used EVERY curler so my hair was a poofy mess... NO brushing could save that rats nest! So this is pictures of my second set...

I also was watched a fabulous youtube video by Fleur about Faux 40's Bangs I'm going to go to Sallys and buy a rat to try it out. Im sure it will look bizarre on me though...

As far as my hot sticks set I think it was pretty swell for a second go! Next time I will add some setting lotion or mousse. What do you think?
