Gangster Squad inspired Old Hollywood Hair

I went to the movies this weekend (rare event) and saw Ben Affleck's "Argo". The beard is hot, ladies. If you love beards, be sure to check out Whoorl's "beard porn" board on pinterest!
BEFORE Argo started there was a preview of Gangster Squad and I nearly choked on my popcorn.
Glamourous hair + Ryan Gosling in one movie?
yes, please!
it's gettin hot in here...
Completely inspired, I decided to try out these vintage curls as worn by Emma Stone in the film. 

Old Hollywood, I'm ready for you!
I used a 1 inch barrel curling iron by Revlon and Redken 15 Spray Starch. As I point out in the video, the spray starch is key. 
It is a heat protectant and really "locks" in the curls which is necessary for this look.
After the tidy, formed locks I experimented by fluffing them up& and got fun, wild curls.
Watch to re-create a bodacious holiday look!

ps: music in my video is by Portland band Executive Swede. I love their soulful film noir instrumentals. Check them out here
