If youre looking for an elaborate Halloween costume that is easy and cheap, then I suggest you watch this tutorial. I love Halloween and totally wouldnt mind doing Halloween hair tutorials only from here on out.

Supplies youll need:

Comb
Hairpins (work better than bobbies)
Hairspray
Styrofoam Cone
Hair
Extensions (Optional)

Instructions:

Tease your hair until its high and mighty.  Spray with hairspray like crazy. Place Styrofoam cone on your head in desired position. Pull up large sections of your hair to cover the foam cone, and pin into styrofoam. You can stick the pins directly into the foam! Continue until foam is completely covered by your hair and it feels secure. Optional: add a strip of extensions onto either side of your head at the temple area. I curled mine with a marcel iron. Spray with hairspray like crazy.

Now youre ready to get married. Lots of people are possessed on their wedding day you know.

My favorite parts are all the parts with huge hair, and when the candle gets lit. My least favorite part was combing out the teasing which mightnt have been so bad if I had done it that night instead of stuffing it into a bun for two more days

And just because I have to say it somewhereI would like you to know that I was this close to calling this a spooktorial.

Special thanks to the very talented Joe Varca for making this awesome film and Amanda Blair for being the worlds best light flickerer.

My Favorite Movie Hair: Margot Tenenbaum

I was sick on Monday with a stupid cold. I took turns watching movies, napping and checking facebook. One of the movies I watched was an old favorite The Royal Tenenbaums. If you havent seen it, you really should. Like all Wes Anderson movies, its got a cool/muted color scheme, dark humor and a dysfunctional family. Also, it was filmed in my neighborhood here in NYC and I recognize so many outdoor scene locations. I love when that happens.

Anyway, Gwyneth Paltrows character, Margot, is the best role shes ever done. Margot wears a fur coat, a stripey collared dress and a blonde bob with a red barrette for pretty much the whole movie. Also, she has a wooden finger.But really, her straighty straight bob is spectacular.

Whenever I watch this movie, I remember that I want to be Margot for Halloween some year. Jake would make a great Richie if he grew his hair out!
