Headband curls vintage hairstyle long haircollage

With all this extra time at home, you can become a masterchef, but you can also become your own personal hairstylist. A few weeks ago I joined a 14-days vintage hairstyle challenge on Instagram (a blog about that challenge and previous vintage hair challenges is coming up soon).
