In this second episode of “In a Hairry”, I do my hair for a very special night in. Watch the video to not only see who this mystery date is, but also to see if I can complete my “60s Hair Headband” in time!

I’m not going to say that this has to be for Valentine’s day, but it does make good date hair, am I right? And when I say date, you know I mean a night out/in with any of the following: your boyfriend/girlfriend, spouse, the Lifetime Movie Network, Netflix, your favorite Brazilian, some Chinese take-out, a good book, a glass/bottle of wine, your kids, your cats, etc.

Instructions for my 60s Hair Headband:

Part your hair as desired.

Grab a section of hair above your ear, but far enough down that it will be covered by the hair on top of your head.

Cross the section of hair to the other side of your head, smoothing as you go and pin in place.

Repeat on the other side.

Optional: Tease the crown of your head for more volume.

I hope you’ve enjoyed the Hairdresser On Fire Holiday Special! Here is episode 3!

Bardot Pony Tail instructions:

Get started by teasing a really good full base at your crown..this is optional. Pull up your hair in stages, creating a roll in the back by wrapping hair around your thumb or finger, and pinning in place. Continue to do this, working your way down until everything is pulled up, except what you want left out for your pony tail!

I bet you look gorgeous. I bet all my money that it’s true. Where this for Christmas or New Years or your birthday, or really anywhere!

Weekend ‘do.

I did it. This inspiration right here? It happened. Take a look!

Again, I don’t have platinum hair or bangs like the original, also I don’t have the length to make this bun as massive as I’d have liked it to be. But I have to say that I really like my take on it. It’s fuzzier than the inspiration photo, because I didn’t straighten my hair first, and also because I am never offended by a little fuzz. If I did this for a formal event, I imagine I’d put in some extensions, especially in the braid. My braid wasn’t long enough to wrap all the way around the bun, so extensions would solve that! Also, I imagine a huge bow in the back would be a dream. I’m doing that next time too. There will be a next time, mark my words.

This would also be beautiful at the nape of your neck. It would also be beautiful on my friend Amanda Blair. I’m going to try it on her next.

Would you wear this look? It would be great for the girl on a date with the tallest man alive. You know, to balance out the height difference. Wearing this bun gave me an extra 4 inches at least. Teasing is practically the high heels of hair.

Weekend hair.

This is what I want to do to my hair this weekend. My version will be a little different what with me not being a platinum blonde, not having bangs and not having a hilariously bug-eyed pup.

Now that I’m thinking about it, my version will be quite different. The inspiration is heavenly though.

Happy weekend!

I’ve been feeling a little uninspired lately. Blogginwise. I miss this blog and it’s always on my mind. I have a million ideas for upcoming projects, some that will even be happening in May! I’m really looking forward to showing them to you all.

I’ve been working on a million projects around my home these days and it’s pretty much day and night. On the weekends I find myself checking the free section of craigslist and going to flea markets to bargain as low as I can for little items to “spruce” up my home. (Not the same as my hair sprucing!) I recently found these girls at the Green Flea and couldn’t leave without them. Their hair puts me in a dream.

When you were little and you’d watch movies with your friends or family, would you yell out “I’m her” for the prettiest girl in the movie? I hope you did because my friends, cousins and sisters and I did that too. I would watch Princess Bride and Splash and I would refuse to watch the movie if I couldn’t be Buttercup or Madison. This applied to all major Disney movies too. Even the Jungle Book. Which only has a girl in it for 15 seconds.

Anyway, in this case, I get to be the pink one. But if one of you called it first, then I’ll be the orange girl. I’d settle for any of these girls. I love them, and their hair and their cheeks and their flowers. They’ve got my mind spinning with inspiration….

..And also caffeine.

Do guys watch Madmen? Probably, because it’s amazing.

I went to a premier party on Sunday night in Brooklyn with a few friends and had some fun dressing up for it. I teased up my hair into a beehive that skimmed the heavens above, threw on some lipstick and pearls and headed off to BK.

At first I was wearing a prom-y number, but since I don’t like strapless I changed to a more conservative shift. The style of the show has changed a lot in the last season, and isn’t so much pearls and gloves anymore. It’s more cat eye-lined lids and short paisley dresses. I love how the show evolves.

Guess how you do a beehive. Tease, then tease more, then tease more, then a little more, then smooth the top part over your huge nest and pin it up or pony it to your liking. It’s so easy, I promise. The hard part is brushing out the nest. Teasers be warned.
