HAIR HACKS [& FANCY MAKEUP TIPS & SUCH]
I do not know about the rest of you but I have been cutting & coloring my own hair in 2020.
[Okay it's not really THAT yipes, I have been doing my own hair off and off between stylists a long time which is what you do after interstate moves until you can find a new good stylist.]
This is a spot to share hair hacks & tips and such.
Yes, the bald may play too.
Also it does not all have to be just about hair. Here is one of my favorite clips on saving shattered powdered makeup compacts:
My hair is getting more and more tragically unruly and it is time to cut it (and color it, yegads). I think I'm going to do this cut. It's super cute. It'll be blonde, not pink, but this was a really cute photo of the cut in pink.
I have so fallen down the rabbit hole. I was cruising Youtube and saw this clip on someone trying on wigs and I watched, and then I watched another, and another —
I am always thinking it would be so cool to have a wig that was all styled and such so then when I did video clips no hair worries yay! Of course, really good wigs are pretty expensive. But still, down the rabbit hole I went watching these wig haul clips which were mostly about people trying on very cheap wigs which natch ultimately ended up in me watching wig clips about really nice wigs and I fell in love with an astronomically priced wig I am not getting (I will not get that wig I will not get that wig I will not get that wig....) BUT —
I found these two women at this wig shop who do a "wig talk" clip every week who are hilarious to me. I LOVE them. They sit at a little desk and try on wigs and banter back and forth and they are like if SNL meets Designing Women I want to turn them into a movie they crack me up. Here they are:
This is the first person I have seen really pull off the trend in retro haircuts:
Thinking about cutting bangs. What could possibly go wrong?
Did my color. I get sad when my hair gets ragged now it is pretty again and I feel human again. Yay!
(Also now I have no excuse to drag my feet on more filming. Um. Oops.)
Cut & styled the hair. This is my take on the Queenie cut & style from Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. I love that cut & style. I think it turned out.
The new wolf cut trend is fun. Not sure I'm going to do it. I like it though. Am thinking about bangs again. Hmm. (Also rose gold hair is awful pretty.)
I like those, but they are getting dangerously close to mullets. More sophisticated mullets, but still...
Did my own gel nails for the first time! Note the name of the color 😱
