How Can You Achieve A Retro Hairstyle Like Marilyn Monroe

Christina Aguilera

Retro Hair styles are back! If you have not noticed,  a return is happening to the Retro hairstyle look of the past. Lets take Marilyn Monroe as an example. Marilyn Monroe, actually wore what is called a graduated bob hair style, that was anywhere between jaw level and shoulder length.  The 2008 version has longer layers with fringe in the front and shorter layers in the back.  Although Marilyn Monroe’s hair was roller set, it can be worn smooth, even straightened, or wavy and tousled.  One of the reasons we are seeing a repeat of this hair style I believe, is that medium length hair styles can be quicker and easier to care for than long hair styles and more versatile than most short hair styles.

Marilyn Monroe and her hair stylist tried 9 different shades of blonde before settling on her famous platinum blonde.  It is not recommended trying 9 different shades of any hair color.  If you are curious about trying anything drastic, there are some online hair style programs (like Barb’s customized virtual hair style makeover) that allow you to try different hair colors and hair styles on your image.  It’s much safer for your hair and a lot of fun too! Take a look at this page for more info.

Retro Vintage Messenger Bags

By Jim Tonkins

These days it seems like everyone is carrying messenger bags; they are amazingly usable, so it makes sense, but why look like every one else when the simple answer is to find and carry not a new messenger bag but a vintage bag? Besides, the newer bags don’t give off that air of uniqueness and exclusivity that the antique messenger bags carry.

Lately, the trend has shifted from the generic backpack to the just as generic messenger bag as the carry all of choice. This can be due to the fact that these bags are both convenient and, equally important these days, totally gender neutral. However, if you are a guy who likes to make a statement rather than blend in with every other male in the world, you need to find a messenger bag that makes a statement as well.

Finding messenger bags that will be unique to yourself alone can be done in a lot of different ways. You can, of course, check Etsy, Vintagemessengerbag.com, eBay, Banana Republic, LL Bean, Buy.com, Amazon, and B&H Photo — the easiest way to find anything that anyone in the world may have decided they can make money on, including old messenger bags. On the other hand, because so many people are going to be hunting for vintage bags, you may end up paying a lot more than you want!

If you take the time to check out the thrift stores and used clothing stores around your town, you will be just as likely to find a vintage messenger bag you like for a much better price. You may also find a bag you like at a military surplus store — the style can be quite nice and unique. You may even be pleasantly surprised if you ask your parents and discover that they have a messenger bag from when they were younger — not only will it be vintage, but it will be completely unique AND be a family heirloom that can actually be useful!

Carrying a messenger bag is just like a habit nowadays. The bag was carried not only by students at school or colleagues but also adult people. We all know that the messenger bag is highly usable bag that can keep our belongings while we were mobile, going from places to places for different occasions,  whether it’s for school activity, work, or even just strolling around town. There are many types of models of messenger bag that you can choose. But instead using the new ones why not try to use the vintage messenger bag that is guaranteed to make you stands out among the crowd.

The vintage messenger bag comes with the unique design that gives you the antiquity feeling of diversity when you carry it around with you. It’s definitely will makes you stand out among the crowds that using common messenger bag. The vintage messenger bag will gives the antiquity feeling of 1940’s to 1960’s era. It will bring back the memory of Michael Jackson pop era around you. Anyway, isn’t that is the feeling that mostly everyone else seek? The opportunity to be different and stands out among other peoples. With the vintage messenger bag you can be different.

When you decide to use the vintage messenger bag, all you have to think about is about style. We already know that what an original messenger bag can do. With vintage messenger bag, the desire of unique style is the ultimate passion that you might want to fill when you think about buying one vintage messenger bag.

The vintage messenger bag can come in the Italian leather design with the common black or brown color. The design itself is just like the same messenger bag only with more detail on the uniqueness of the bag. That’s why when you choose a vintage messenger bag, choose one that can describes yourself. It is hardly enough to find two kinds of the same vintage messenger bag because of its unique design. Because of its unique design also you need to try harder to find a vintage messenger bag that will suits your passion for style that describes yourself. You may have to try finding one in the internet that sells antique and unique vintage messenger bag with different price and models.  Of course when everyone tries to find the same thing you may need to pay much more money for one models that is very rare and very unique. But you may want to try to walk to the second hand stores or any other clothing store around your town to find one of the bags.  You may get a better range of price offer if you are lucky enough. It is simply because the vintage messenger bag, just like what I mentioned earlier is a product that comes from the 40’s era that makes it difficult enough to find.
