alright, alright I just couldnt wait to share it with you gals... so here is the step by step for a modernized Betty Grable 'do...

picture heavy..

   Step 1

Start by taking a parting starting in the middle right eyebrow and continue to the left side of the back of the head. 

  Step 2

Take one half of the hair and gather it in your hand.  Roll the hair towards the front of the face so that you have a neat coil affect. 

Step 3

Bobby pin the hair so that it stays neat against the head. 

 Step 4

Repeat the rolling technique on the other side, rolling it neatly towards the face.  Pin in place. 

  Step 5

Take each ponytail of hair and twist each hair into a rope.  Make sure to twist in opposite directions 

  Step 6

Bring the two ponytails together and twist together to form a rope.

  Step 7

Secure the ponytail rope together by attaching a clear rubber band at the end of the hair.

  Step 8

Gently pull loose sections of hair to create an arc.  Be careful to not take too much hair. 

  Step 9

Continue to loosely pull out some of the hair to create a tousled effect within the ponytail rope.

 Step 10

Lightly coil the rope around itself to create a bun

  Step 11

Pin the bun in place so that it is secure on top of the head. 

  Step 12

Lightly hairspray the bun and surrounding hair. 

Step 13

Finish the look with your fingers and mold the look with hairspray to get your desired finish. 

now on you go long haired gals! show me what you got =)

this is what I was TRYING to do at Halloween but my hair was too short!And, I only did one twist in the back. This would have been better for my short hair.

THANK YOU SO MUCH! i thought this was one of those hairstyles that was always gonna be unattainable to me, so i wouldnt have even bothered to try. im gonna practice, and when i get it pretty good i'll post pics for everyone!!!!
