Rosie the Riveter Remixed Hair Bow

Friday, April 18, 2014

My hair is usually in some sort of protective style about 90% of the time.  I can't say I get bored with my choice of styles, but sometimes I'd like to kick things up a notch or two.  After looking around I found my fix and wanted to share this AWESOME hair bow with you guys that I've been loving since the day it arrived on my door step!

I'm at a place these days that either I'm too busy to do my hair  - or I'm so used to it being up, that I don't think of doing too much else to it.  Most days I say to myself "you are supposed to blog about hair, yet you don't take the take to do much outside the norm to your hair."  This is true and more than that, it's OK.  I'm not the one to pop out fancy hairstyles every week, because in my real life, that's just not real!  I'm simple and will wear the same hairstyle throughout the week to make my life a bit easier.  I will on those occasions I'm going out, do something a bit different.  That's why this Remix Riveter hair bow by Vine80 is PERFECT for me.  It gives me that edge I like without a lot of commitment from me.  Seriously, the same day I received this bow in the mail, I ordered another one in a different pattern.  I just wish I could sew, because I'd make myself 100 of these!

Speaking of Rosie the Riveter, it's amazing how this look of wearing a bandana was not totally in the name of fashion, but for function and safety first.  The "Rosie the Riveter" character was inspired by a song in 1942 that used the term "Rosie the Riveter".  We're all used to seeing the promotional and commercial images of "Rosie the Riveter", but I found it much more interesting to see some pictures of real life "Rosie the Riveters":

Nashville, TN "Rosie" circa 1943

"Rosie"from Iowa circa 1943
"Rosie's" at lunch circa April 1943.  I love this picture and wish I knew what they were chatting about.

I love these pictures and actually got a load of inspiration from them as well as appreciation.  

As the weather heats up and you're not wearing your hair out, how do you like to style it and still maintain your coolness (if you will lol)?
