Helga does hair!



Thought you may be interested in how easy it is to do my hair!
The padding thingy I use is a pair of opshopped tights bundled up and glued onto a hair clip!
I used to be obsessed with bumpits, but this is way better, and I can wear my bike helmet painlessly over it!
No teasing/backcombing either-truly painless!

How flipping clever! and yes I agree with the girlie's above too, you make it look sooo simple :)

Rose&Bird said...

Brilliant - like you say, so much better than bumpits. Now, what did I do with those old tights?!

pastcaring said...

And THAT'S how you do it, folks! Ta da! Are you sure that's old tights and not some random sausage? It looked a bit like a potato too, but that might be a bit hard on the noggin!
You look gorgeous, my dear. Make up tutorial next please, before you move onto the waxing of the lady garden, hahaha! xxxxx

Miss Simmonds Says said...

Genius! That is extremely well behaved hair, did you threaten it beforehand? Maybe i could make a mini sausage. ooh eerr

Helga the super star xx

Perdita said...

Cool- I find bumpits painful, so this 'cheat' is very useful! Old tights and clip, here I come!

Franca said...

Love this! Problem is I can never grow my hair this long! I've tried the scrunched up tights thing but they eneded up being a wee bit visisble. Thankfully it was black fishnets so that's ok.

What's all the freaky noise going on? I was hoping to hear your voice!

Misfits Vintage said...

FabulARSE as always! People always ask how long it takes me to do my hair and when I tell them it takes thirty seconds they never believe me!

I'm over my bumpits too - what can we make with them???

Love you more than big hair! Sarah xxx

Kelly said...

Krista said...

That is absolutely brilliant I wanna try!!!! Your so pretty Helga and you do make it look easy.

FeltByRae said...

You star! My hair isn't as long as yours but I think I could adapt your cunning technique as I really want an Ab Fab Patsy up-do for a hen do I have coming up... I do, I do!

Vintage Coconut said...

You did that faster than I can run a brush through my hair. ;)
Obviously you are immensly talented and skilled in the Helga hair department.

GREAT VIDEO!!

Lisa Shayla said...

Holy shite - I never realized how long your hair was!! So here's a question I've pondered over the years... If you wear it up all the time anyway, why not just cut it short??? That and why do men have nipples??? Just the inner workings of my mind...frightening!

Tomye said...

I love your re-designing of garments. I am learning from you to never pass up beautiful fabric and patterns even if I don't like the style. I'm looking at what it could be instead of what it is! xxooo -T

Lakota [Faith Hope and Charity Shopping] said...

OMG - this is genius! You make it look so easy with the old hair grips though, I've never mastered those little bastards. I need to see how they go in.

Sausage tights on a clip is fab though.

vintage_kitten said...

liz said...

Oooh, ooooh I'd love to try this. (but what stockings would I dare sacrifice...?) love the weird burbly noises in the background and the shameless mugging at the end...perfect!
