Easy Vintage Hair Up-Do For High Humidity Days How-to Video

high humidity retro hair lisa freemont street video

Today, we have a video tutorial for high humidity hair style with a vintage twist. What a lifesaver in all this heat that I know is just going to get hotter and stickier as the summer rolls on. This retro Southern California girl is already tired of the heat and humidity. You all east of me, I don’t know how you do it year after year.

Lisa Freemont Street who does the video was in a bit of a rush when she was filming but if you just take a little time to smooth things out, this high humidity hair style will work just about anywhere. The pin curls and flower are optional for those that are not into the vintage or retro look. But I do think that the roll in the back would be perfect for work or a weekend date. Anything that gets my hair off of my neck and off of my face while still looking presentable is tops in this Southern California pinup’s book.

Mad Men Mid-Season Finale Tonight On AMC

mad men mid-season finale 2014

After 7 seasons, tonight is the mid-season finale for Mad Men on AMC. Oh my. With a lack luster final season, Mad Men, Matt Weiner and AMC still decided to split it into two years a la Breaking Bad? What a shame.

While the clothing and the set designs are still going well, the momentum of the show is long gone (Season 3, 4, maybe after the 1st season?) It was leaked that they were told season 5 that it might be their last one, so it makes much more sense now how there has been a lack of flow for the past few years. Oh well, at least there’s only one half of a season left.

The best thing to come out of this year has been the interviews with the female cast. January Jones did the most jaw dropping naked photo spread for online magazine Violet Grey. She proves that this single mother is still hot.

And Christina Hendricks (aka Joan) wrote a letter to men in the pages of Esquire on what men should know about being with women. From what we like to see you wear, what we remember, and what to drink (scotch, just fyi). Oh and did I mention all the photos of Christina Hendricks in her lingerie?

So who is watching the mid-season finale with me tonight?  I know, I talk smack, I just want to see how it ends!
