Great hair needs to be shared!12:12 AM
Don't you think?
Pardon the rhyme, I do apologise.
I also apologise too, for how quiet it's been around here. I'm so sorry! I feel like i've virtually dropped off the map in the last week or two! Tafe has started with a bang, so unfortunately my mind has been on other things than this blog, namely typography, learning to use adobe illustrator and trying in vain to manage a vaguely realistic self portrait; I've always been a cartoony type illustrator so my drawn eyes are looking kind of huge and buggy. Nevermind. I'm having a ball.
I was browsing through some old photos recently, and I stumbled upon this one. My hair here is kind of fantastic, if I do say so myself :). To be honest I think it's because I didn't technically do it! This was from 2009, after a huge night at the Helpmann Academy Gala dinner as a 1959 model/usher/hostess/auction-helper/whatever. This was part of a costume assignment for Tafe; we designed and made dresses to fit in with the theme, got all dolled up by the hair and make-up students and just generally wandered around looking fabulous all night. It's was a hard job, but someone had to do it :) I must say though, this sultry little wave only came into being after the evening's festivities, after i pulled all 50-something bobby pins out of this sculptural creation.
I mention it, because i haven't managed to get a wave so perfect since. I'm having a tremendous amount of difficulty keeping in a curl now that my hair is so long. As I've mentioned before, though, I just can't bring myself to cut it shorter. I think I still have childhood dreams of mermaid hair down to my butt :)
Any of you lovelies have tips for keeping curls in long hair, or methods of setting to get that perfect veronica lake wave?
Love, and thanks for bearing with me :)
PS- For those of you who are interested; this was my dress. It's the first one I ever designed, patternmade and constructed all by myself. YAY :D
