1940s inspired Updo using a hair "rat" (again!)

Today I want to show you another hairstyle that you can use with your "rat" (or as they say in the UK "roly poly" ... also gibson roll or edwardian).  
Its an updo inspired by the 1940s that you can accessorize with beautiful art deco or jeweled clips. 
This look has been seen in various forms on the runway 
and on celebrities

And here is the tutorial:
If you prefer less "swoop" and volume then I can recommend doing a twist updo as seen in my femme fatale video here

Links to find a rat are located in the video information box.
happy beautiful retro hair girls!
