Vintage is back!!!!!!!!

                                            WERE TAKING IT BACK TO THE 40'S YA'LL!

 The 1940s ushered in a more free flowing water-waving style. A hairstyle made famous by Veronica Lake, the soft cascading wave style stems from the classic long bob with a deep side part. The technique is called water waving, because the hair had to be wet, to set the waves. This is a great classic look for a formal event or dinner and will last a few days, with the touch up of a hot iron.
