Qipao Love: Part 23 ~ Vintage inspired 1950s hairstyle How-To for Qipao or Cheongsam...during Chinese New Year!

As pledged when doing the fundraiser for the half-marathon SHINE walk I did last year for Cancer Research; reaching my target and completing the 21 km walk...it is a little overdue but perhaps most useful as Chinese New Year happens to be literally just round the corner....so here is my "Quiff & Ponytail" 1950s inspired Vintage hairstyle that is easy to do, adds height to your person and just right for rocking that Qipao (Cheongsam) in Vintage style! Think sweetly youthful Olivia Newton-John in 'Grease' and you will probably get the idea of this playful but sculpted style. No petticoats necessary, unless you want a full girly look in a modern flared bottom Cheongsam...plus you can probably rev it up with a saucy mandarin collar top and cropped cigaret pants. Please do bear with me as it is my very first hair video tutorial, though not completely perfect, but aptly in time to help you darlings towards a wonderful Chinese New Year I hope.....

Do try out this hairstyle and pop along to the 'Walking in May' Youtube Channel too. The video is a slightly toned down verson of the top of head quiff, so its easier to wear during the New Year....plus it includes a special appearance by my handsome cat BouBou. The original Elvis Quiff & Ponytail style I did for the fundraiser looks like this (photo below):

Last but not least, I have a little announcement to make....for those in Malaysia; you darlings will be able to see me discuss the Cheongsam (Qipao) in an interview on 'Capital Today' (a programme by Malaysian television channel Capital TV). Details:

Date: 19th February 2015 (Chinese New Year day)
Time: 9pm (Malaysian time)
Channel: 420 on Unifi's HyppTV

Looking forward to Chinese New Year and seeing all of you darlings in your Qipao for the 'Cheongsam Confidence' day (20th February 2015). I shall be helping run the Franklin Tree store in the Brick Lane (London) Vintage Market....so feel free to pop down to say 'Hello' and see which Qipao or Cheongsam I will be wearing. Happy mid-week darlings!

Until the next time,
May xx
