She has created an instragram hashtag #snoodtember and posted photos of beautiful snoods and tips on how to wear them.
I'm right alongside Tanith in her love of snoods. A snood is any sort of net or bag that is designed to hold a woman's hair. They where particularly popular during the 1940s when women working in factories needed to contain their hair for safety's reasons.
However, snoods where not only for casual wear. They could be dressed up too, like this gorgeous beaded version on Ginger Rogers.
For myself, the appeal of the snood is the simplicity. A snood gives you a vintage hair do with basically zero effort, no rollers or pin curls required. Plenty of vintage fans create elaborate styles to go with their snoods, but as I have zero hair styling talent I just pull my locks into the snood and perhaps curl my bangs. Easy, peasy, and takes less then two minutes. I found this post from Vavoom Vintage very helpful when I first started wearing snoods.

All of my snoods are from Arthelia's Attic, and she makes a beautiful snood. I am sure you can find them for cheaper but her quality can't be beat and her snoods are beautiful, sturdy, and stay put. I have four of them and love them to pieces. I have gotten plenty of compliments on them, including one lovely lady who told me I brought her right back to her youth in the 1940s.
I love to wear snoods to work since they are so quick to put on:
But they are great fun for weekends too.
What do you think of snoods? Do you have a favorite hair accessory?
