And the new look? I want Chic, I want Fun, Funky, Retro, a Little Feminine, a lot Nerdy, and Rockin!
So, Chic Rockabilly. Yeah, I totally made that up. It's not just Retro, it's a little tongue in cheek since I am a total nerd. And forget the saddle shoes, let's not get all crazy like--I won't touch those unless I draw them on a pair of ballet flats or something. Now, that's an idea, more later.
|What a pin curl could look like...|
By playful, I mean lots of color instead of the typical limited Black/White/Red of a Rockabilly Gal. I am sure with a bit of tweeking and some very fun shopping that my wardrobe will evolve if I wear the pieces I have purchased and hanging in my closet. I am totally in love with certain looks, but I'll get more on style later. For now, the biggest (and cheapest) impact I can make on my look is my hair. I already have plenty of it.
|What MY pin curl DID look like.|
Youtube seriously let me down on this. Usually, I can watch a video on youtube and be just like those "I slept at a Holiday Inn last night," commercials and pretty much do anything I set my mind to. But oh no, not pin curls. It was bad. Really bad. Nobody told me it would be THAT bad the first time I tried it. They all made it look soooo simple. Evil, evil youtubers.
New things I have learned as I venture on my new hairstyle: 1. Braiding the bottom half of your head does NOT approximate a pin curl, and 2. Setting Lotion is downright crunchy, and not in a 'good' way.
If it's not too scary, I'll post the results tomorrow. Wish me luck!
