A note to a BFF

The main purpose of Facebook, for me, is to share cute images with my BFFs.I was missing my BFF today so i decided to make a little greeting for him! Facebook is just so much better when you have something friendly waiting for you on your timeline.

Pin Curl Test #1

I did my first set in pincurls in over a year. I forgot what a good work out it is for your arms! I just brushed out the curls with my fingers and tried to create bit of a floppy bang. Once again this the look minus any sort of product. This is a picture of me in the morning. My pjs have a very jail bandit feel to them -but they are crazy comfortable and i loves them! The pjs are Vera Wang for Kohl’s.

New Hair

This is the cut that i got. No product, washed, and dried this is how it falls. Next up is experimenting with pin curls! 
One of the looks that inspired the cut was Marilyn Monroe’s hair in the film ‘Let’s Make Love’. I wanted something mid-length that could be styled into a floppy look. 

Get Off My Pinterest Board and Into My Life!

Step One: Get a Haircut
Pinterest is full of beautiful pictures of hair. Many people have a board devoted to the multitude of photographs that feature enviable hair. You can get lost in all the hair they have there!
My first step to getting inspiration of the pinterest board and into my life was going for the haircut.
Before I got my hair cut, a couple days ago, my hair was down my back to the midway point from your head to your butt. It was too long for my face. I never did anything with it. The ends were unhealthy. The sketch above is how i wore my hair nearly everyday. I had bangs, pulled my long hair into a bun and had a couple free pieces hanging down. It was repetitive, boring, and not all that flattering. So, i took the inspiration off the pinterest board and went for the chop. 
This is the cut i went for. I kept my bangs longer because i am still on the fence as whether to cut them or grow them. The hairdresser asked me three times if i was sure i wanted to cut my hair. She had experienced girls who claimed they wanted a haircut to only up crying was said hair was cut. I assured her i was ready for the drastic change. Drastic hair changes are one of my favourites. And now the experimenting with the shorter hair begins!

To cut or not to cut??

Oh, it is time for me to visit the salon. My hair is an awful mess. I have not had a trim in over 6 months. The ends feel dry and i look scraggly. I am just suffering over the decision of how short to cut my hair. Since I am attempting to take inspiration off the pinterest board and into my life, i have been revisiting the hair that i crave. This is not proving to be helpful. I seem to love both long and short hair equally. Who doesn’t want to look all sexy sophisticated like this 1950s Italian lady??

I have always thought the idea of short hair being less sexy than long hair ridiculous. It does not get much more sexy than that lady pictured above.
I have always wanted to try the Marilyn Monroe look for hair. But even that idea poses problems cause i am not sure if i want to go with the mid-length cut or the shorter do she sported 
I do not have an appointment till after christmas….but haircuts are such importatnt decisions i think i will be pondering this dilemma for the next couple of days. Hmmm…short or long? Short or long??

Vintage Pepsi Christmas

Coca Cola’s vintage 50s ads seem to stick in many peoples minds when thinking of vintage Christmas ads. One reason for this is that Coke has been wise enough to reemploy the use of their vintage Jolly Santa. Santa wears red and white. Coca Cola’s can is red and white. Clearly Coca Cola should be considered at Christmas time. 

In the 50s Pepsi attempted a different approach with their Holiday ads. While the Christmas Season can be full of indulgence, Pepsi focused on being the slim choice or the season. Fashionable women with tiny waists celebrate Christmas and maintain their slim figures.

     

Oh, the hair and the clothes! I am finding so much inspiration for holiday party looks.  I must create a fabulous christmas tree hat like the one in the ad above. Boy oh boy! And that red outfit is all kinds of  sophisticated sexy. Want to look cute while decorating the Christmas tree? Try slim cigarette pants with a snug fitting top. The tree with have to compete with the cuteness that you possess. 
My favourite of the bunch is the ad that features a woman in an all black outfit, with short black hair, unwrapping a bird cage. I am feeling very inspired by her haircut. I suppose it would be odd to bring the picture of an illustration to your hairdresser…..but i am loving that hairstyle. 

Vintage Hairspiration

Catherine Deneuve is adorable in the above photo (the puppy ain’t so bad either). I attempted to do a similar look with my hair today but due to the facts that, 1. i have bangs and 2. hair is not feeling bouncy, the whole look fell flat. Still, a good luck to come back to. Would be perfect for when i am growing my bangs out.
