I’ve gotta tell ya.  If I could grow up during any time period, it’d be this one.  The glamour, the beads and accessories.  The fringe.  THE DANCING!!!  Oh gees.  I can’t even get started!  I hope you guys will spend some time and watch the video, it took me a billion hours to film and put together!  Like over 15… haha!!  Seriously these things can be so deceivingly time consuming!  ALSO… there may or may not be an AMAZING giveaway going on to those who are subscribed to my channel… soo… just sayin!

    i’d love to use the thick barrel to curl my long hair!!

  • Now if someone would just throw a Gatsby party/wedding for me to attend!! I would love that. A friend of mine actually just went to a Gatsby themed wedding and it was gorgeous. Love these hairstyles…you look beautiful!

  • Ohhhh, I love it!!

  • Abby, any person with a lick of sense would recognize that these tutorials you so graciously offer to us take FOR-FREAKIN’-EVER. You’re amaze-balls. You don’t have to tell us every time that you spent forever on them to get people to like, share, comment, pin, whatever. They totally speak for themselves and you should be confident in the fact that everyone LOVES you and all your fab tutorials by now. Just wanted to give you a little pep-talk because I know this blogging thing can totally take a toll after a while, especially if it seems like no one’s paying attention. Obviously people are! Keep it up, girl, you’re totally rad.

  • Both of these styles are AMAZING! If I had to dress up for Halloween I would totally do a 20s flapper and rock one of these styles!


  • This is just fabulous! I love the Gatsby inspiration. It gives you a very chic look. You really know the deal. I can’t help but give you my compliments on the quality of the video. I bet it took you a lot of time to put it together. Great headbands! Giving me 1920’s daydreams!

  • I LOOOOVE this! Just in time for halloween. So stunning!
