Okay so last week I did something I have been meaning to do for a while. I know that if I am to call myself a vintage gal I not only need to know how to do my own vintage hairstyles on my own hair but also be able to look the part as well.
I haven't done something this daring on my hair since I was nineteen and I basically had my hair completely chopped off! I posted a picture of it here. I brought the diagram to my hairstylist a week before and she said she would study it. To be honest with you I don't really know if I got the Middy Plus or the Femme Fatale. I think it was more the Femme Fatale.
Afterwards, I came home and lets just say I am still in a state of shock! I am very happy I took the risk but being one who has never been good with hair and then running around after three munchkins all day--the haircut made me feel like doomsday had arrived! LOL
Okay this is how I roll everyday. I do not put on makeup during the day at all minus some chap stick so here I am bare hahah with my Middy Plus? Femme Fatale? God's know what? Like the mop in the background? heheh
Now this is me after putting some hot rollers in for just 15 minutes. The babies were running up and down the stairs (because they figured out how to open the gate!) and my hubby was waiting for me to finish so he could run some errands so I just did this very, very quickly. I didn't feel very 1940's but rather 1950's and so therefore I basically freaked out!
My only comfort was knowing my hubby didn't think I looked bad-he actually was calling me a dark Marilyn Monroe hehehe And also listening to my friend Brittany tell me over and over that it will be okay and work out. I normally don't give a hoot about my hair but this really shook me up! After a while I decided to leave the panicking behind me and everyday since that first day I have been attempting a different hairstyle.
Let me know your thoughts--I need all the encouragement I need especially since I finally joined Model Mayhem!! I actually made arrangements to work with this darling women who is actually from Australia who is now living in New York. I really like her and feel good about collaborating with her. Check out her facebook page when you can at Jodie King Photography.
So now more than ever I need to get a firm grasp and conquer this whatever kind of haircut that I got and make it look as 1940's as possible for my shoot. I will be posting my hair trials tomorrow!
