WBBE: A New Hairstyle
When I saw that today's creative challenge on Elah Tree was a new hairstyle, I knew I just had to do something about that.
It's been all too long since the last installation of "Worst Beauty Blogger Ever," my occasional series which pokes fun at the fact that I'm a rather odd fit for the title of beauty professional. My hair is excessively long and heavy at the moment (some of it reaches past my shoulders. Gasp!) and people I love are attempting to blackmail me into keeping it long.
Something had to be done. I've been rather attracted to this Rosie the Riveter style of tying up my hair in a scarf for a while but didn't know how feasible it would be or how attractive it would look in real life. I found out that it's very easy, or, at least, it became very easy once I figured out that in order to tame my naturally volume-loving locks enough to get them to fit in the scarf, I had to stick a couple pins in and put the rest in a low ponytail before I put the scarf on. I curled my bangs to give the look a bit of glamor, and that was it!
Also, you'll notice that I actually wore eyeliner and lipstick. My eyeliner is my famous coordinates-with-my-hair liquid eyeliner but the bright lipstick was provided by Influenster in partnership with Rimmel for review. The color is "As You Want Victoria" and I love how vivid it is.
So, what do you think of this look? Am I erring TOO far on the side of creative and wacky, or can I pull this off? Would you try, or have you already tried the retro headscarf look? Bonus: it's just as good as a hat for disguising stubborn hair days!
