Some 20’s inspiration

Some 20's inspiration | Screen Shot 2014 03 25 at 22.21.29 e1395782526939

I was asked to find inspiration for an editorial story I’m about to work on .  I believe the photo on left by Man Ray was created by  marcel waving and the photo right by Lillian Gish is naturally wavy hair that has been set in rags. Whats extra special about the Man Ray is the pose. If the model was posed standing or sitting the hair would be a triangle shape , and possibly less interesting.

 Rags are a technique that was used back in the 20’s to 40’s . Here is a simple technique to guide you . Do before bed , sleep on it and release next morning .The result is a relaxed natural looking wave .
