Last week I wrote a post saying that I would do an Outfit of the Week post once a week if interesting events in my life permitted - well, week 2 and I've managed to stick to my word! I didn't have a big event to go to, but I had recently gotten back into Karmin - an *amazing* YouTube band. Amy Heidemann (the lead singer of Karmin) also does the odd hair tutorial, and so I decided to create a look based on her tutorial for the suicide roll.

Warning for anyone who wants to try this style out: it is *hard*. It took a lot of commitment and a lot more back-combing. As someone who never back-combs, the amount required made me fear for my poor hair - but I think I somewhat managed to get the look down.

Hair tip: have *lots* of hairspray ready, and make sure you do this on a day where you can spend lots of time conditioning your hair after you take it out.
What do you think of the 1940's look? What's your favourite fashion era?
