playing with hair… again

Posted in Hair by yoshi on January 24, 2010

the vans x hellz party is coming up and all the ladies will be in town for it so of COURSE i gotta bring my A game!

now, i really can’t compete with the fly ladies when it comes to style because lawn, et al, ALWAYS kill it, so i’m just gonna make sure that whatever i wear, i’m comfortable, wearing flats, and am able to drop it like its HOT. so yea, basically i’ll end up dressing like a boy – BET. however, the one thing i can always do to spice up my look, is my hair! woohoo! now you may not think that i can do a lot with my hair since its so short, people often get the misconception that you can only wear short hair one way…


with short hair you can do so many AMAZING styles, that’s why i LOVE short hair because i know i can’t afford to replenish my wardrobe all the time but i CAN manage to change up my do =P

so i was experimenting with my curling iron to see what kind of look i should go for for the party… i can never go wrong with a nice curly pin-up inspired look (actually, more reminiscent of marilyn monroe i guess) – VA VA VA VOOOOOM!

STEP 1: use a “bump,” or was it pump, curling iron, the fat one to create a few curls on top

i used two sizes one fat one regular… don’t mind my old ass white iron – that shit is maaad ghetto but still does the job lmao

make sure your curls are all going in one direction to create that classy look, and keep it all looped like a circle until the very end.

STEP 2: once you got all the curls in that you need (using the smaller iron for the shorter hair) then you can take your finger and kinda break up the curls to make it look more natural

STEP 3: you COULD leave it like this and hairspray the shit out of it….

OR you could mess it up a bit more and then hairspray the SHIT out of it like this:

let’s hope i can get my hair to do this for the party lmao – oh yea, all i need now is to put some hot red lipstick on and i’m good to go!

*and yes, i realize how weird it is to take a ton of pictures of yourself, especially of your own face/hair – and no, i’m not really THAT vain… maybe a lil BAHAHHAHAHA jk
