Well guys, it’s September, it’s a little rainy today in ATX and I already have had a #pumpkinspicelatte (because I’m THAT girl)... So hopefully that means that my favorite season, Autumn, is around the corner! So to help get us in the mood, here’s one of my favorite Fall colors I did a while back. 🍁🍂🎃❤️

Who else has the feeling they just said “Dippity-Do” in the commercial so many times because it’s fun to say? 🙋🏻‍♀️ Posted @withregram • @oldfashionvibes Dippity-Do, 1960s commercial. ⁣

Happy #internationaldogsday to my little lady, Lexi! We celebrated by going to @p_terrys drive thru for a treat. 🐶❤️

Happy #marilynmonday! 💋💋💋 Here’s a side by side of the times @mk_blondie was serving up that iconic Hollywood glam with Marilyn inspired hair and makeup by me. Photo from the left is from 2017, and the right is from 2019. ❤️💄💋

Seeing as it’s now August and we are hitting those triple digits here in Texas, I thought I would share this pic from when I was breaking a sweat from my shoot with @pinuppennyphoto at @viva.las.vegas.vlv last year!🔥🔥🔥🔥

If you live somewhere else, what’s the weather like where you are? ☀️😎

Just thought I would interrupt your feed with a #flashbackfriday post of some pretty hair.. 😍🌈 Bright colored vintage hair always makes me think of cotton candy. 😋 All colors, cuts and styles done by me. 💖💜💙💚 .

Well, what an interesting twist of events! After my last post pertaining my Great Grandmother, @galvestonhistory Foundation was able to locate and send me photos of her from the 1926 @beachrevue. In fact, this is her from one of those photos! She is on a good amount of their promotional images this year. I even “liked” this post a few weeks ago without even knowing it was her until they had contacted me. 😂 Thank you so much to the Galveston Historical Foundation for reaching out and further connecting my family to this piece of history! ❤️ #familyhistory #galvestonbeachrevue #galvestonhistoricalfoundation #bathingbeauty #missuniverse #pageantry #texashistory #internationalpageantofpulchritude

Seeing as they will be celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Galveston Beach Review next weekend, I thought I would do a little write up about the history of the event, Galveston and my Great Grandmother. She was a contestant in 1926 when it became the first International Pageant of Pulchritude. This was the first pageant that held the “Miss Universe” title. You can see the full post on my blog at https://www.pincurledperfection.com/post/1920spageant

Yesterday I shared some of the inspiration behind work that I have done, so today I thought it would be fun to share some inspiration for some ideas that I would like to do.
I actually had been planning on doing some of these this year, but sadly Covid threw a wrench into that gear! I’ll just have to save them for next year, I guess.
So here they are so far:
-A homage to Shirley Maclaine’s pink look in “What a Way to Go” 💕
-A collaborative spooky retro (yet respectful) photoshoot in a local graveyard. 🖤
-Some pinup/vintage styling that utilizes natural Afro textured hair ❤️
It may be a while before I get to do any of these, but I think it’s always good to be scheming and having something to look forward to! 😉

What are you inspired by? ✨

I thought it would be fun to do a side by side of my creative looks from last year and what their inspirations are. I take inspiration from many things: People, styles, decades, hair, genres, objects.. Sometimes I just think “that would be cool if that was on someone’s hair”. Why not make it a reality?🌈

These might have been things that I wanted to create, but it’s also a neat thing about doing any form of job where you are working to bring someone else’s vision to life. I love when you guys whip out that Pinterest board! ❤️

I’m so sad to hear that one of my favorite classic Austin establishments @dartbowlatx will be closing it’s doors after 62 years of business. I loved the time capsule that was Dart Bowl cafe and their inconspicuously delicious Tex-mex.
This was one of our favorites for date nights, I had one of my best birthday parties there and we had one of the most fun @garboasalon team events there, in which this picture was taken. Before covid-19 hit we were planning on doing an Austin Vintage Vixens meetup there, and sadly it never got to happen.

It’s a shame what covid is doing to our small businesses. I wish I could go out more to support these places I love.. I at least have been trying to buy merch here and there some of my favorite Austin establishments hoping that it will help keep them afloat. Let’s do what we can to #keepaustinweird and #keepaustinvintage! ✨✨

I love this photo of Joan Crawford doing her poodle’s hair while she’s getting her hair done... Now, that’s what I call multitasking! 🐩

I’m at 19 weeks as of yesterday, and I swear it’s like I woke up one day last week and this belly appeared out of nowhere!
😮
Soon, I won’t be able to fit into a good deal of my clothes. So to my followers that are moms: Where were some of your favorite places for clothes when you were expecting? Bonus points if you also have a vintage esthetic like me!✨

-Side note- And you guys thought your roots were bad... 😂

Lol more like a year... 😅😬 #repost from @behindthechair_com. #hairstylistonhiatus

As some of you may have been aware, I was set to return to work by the end of this month. However, I regret to inform you that I have decided it would be best for my physical and mental health to stay home for the duration of my pregnancy. Currently, it looks as though my return to work will be after my maternity leave in spring of 2021, but that all is contingent on the status of the pandemic at that time.

Please know that this was not an easy decision for me to make. My job is a lot more than work to me and I have put a lot into it over the years to get to where I am today. My clients are a lot more than business to me, but relationships who have supported me for years. You are people who have sent me your friends and family, gave me great reviews, given me gifts and Christmas cards.. I have done hair for your daughters’ proms and weddings. Some of you have even supported me since I first started at Garbo as a New Talent 8 years ago when my prices were 1/3 of what they are now and have seen me get married, buy my first home and now have my first child. Please know that I appreciate you and miss you.

I will try my best to give you a recommendation of who to see during my absense, if requested. Please be extra kind and patient to my teammates at Garbo during this time, especially our front line staff. They have been working extra hard not only having to adjust my schedule (multiple times), but also the schedules of about 30 other people over the past several months.

Thank you for understanding and I hope to see you all in 2021. ❤️

I just want to say that while posting pictures on social media for support, awareness and solidarity is great, try to do what you can to take action as well.
If you have the means to do so, do your research and make a donation to an organization that is going to make a difference. If you can’t help financially, make calls, write letters or sign petitions. Or spread awareness of how other people can help.
For those who are interested, I am sharing a link to for donations to Resurrection Houston below. Resurrection Houston is the church that George Floyd directly worked with in their outreach youth programs in the Third Ward.

https://resurrectionhouston.org/donate/

Seeing as it’s #worldgothday and #flashbackfriday, I thought I’d share this little oldie of me donning some @vampiraofficial makeup from many moons ago. 🦇 Vampira was definitely one of the first modern goth icons, being a horror hostess in the mid century. I’ve always loved how she was spooky yet glamorous. I can’t remember how I was first introduced to her, but I loved Lisa Marie’s portrayal of her in the movie Ed Wood (which is my favorite movie BTW). 🕷
This was around the time I dropped out of college to go to beauty school. 😂💄 I was really just trying to figure it all out, I was just getting into vintage styling and was really interested in makeup. I was always practicing different looks on myself. I actually originally just wanted to be a makeup artist, but I eventually fell in love with hair as well.
If I did this look again, I’d probably contour a bit more for more of a dramatic cheekbone. But I’m impressed with how much of a decent job I did blocking my brows.. All in all, I’d say considering I was using drugstore makeup and had no experience, it’s not too shabby! 🤷🏻‍♀️🖤

Reminiscing this fabulous wedding hair I got to style on miss Leigh Ann back in November. That was so much fun working with her and her bridal party! She was truly stunning.❤️

I’m missing all the bridal and event hair! Sadly, the weddings I was scheduled to do hair for this Spring season were all postponed due to covid-19. ☹️ This time of year is usually very busy in the salon with weddings, prom, graduations, etc. I’m sorry for those who are having to miss out on their occasions!

I wanted to note that in between covid-19 making everything in the near future unpredictable and my baby being due in the fall, I will not be accepting new wedding requests at this time. I currently can’t guarantee my availability and would hate to have to cancel for any reason. I know a lot of other great bridal stylists, vintage and modern alike and would be more than happy to offer a recommendation if requested. 😊

Thank you @tallesttrees for sharing your photo! ❤️

Little Richard is my favorite musician from the golden age of rock and roll, which made seeing him in 2013 such a memorable experience for me. I was in the front and center and danced my butt off! He was cracking all sorts of jokes during his set. I still have this little photocopy autograph picture of him and this book about finding God that he had them hand out to the audience as a keepsake. I’ll never forget that night. I’m sad to hear that he’s gone, but I’m glad I have this memory and that he lived a long and successful life. ❤️ #littlerichard #riplittlerichard #oohmysoul

Looks like I’m going to have another head of hair to groom.. 💕 We’re expecting a new addition to our family due November 7th 2020! 🍼
That being said, as much as I miss you guys and being behind the chair, I have decided to wait to return back to work until it seems ok for me to do so. It will not be immediately when the state starts to reopen salons for me. On top of being pregnant I have another health complication and just want to do all this as safe as possible.
If you need to get your hair done once the salon reopens before I return, we have a great team at @garboasalon that can accommodate you. I want you to do what’s best for you. Please let me know if you would like a recommendation and we will do our best to help you. ❤️
-On a side note, wouldn’t it be cute if @suavecitopomade and @suavecitapomade had some baby goodies? ✨
