Jake likes my hair the most when it’s long, blonde and bang-less. He seems to prefer it straight or with loose waves, rather than my natural wavy/curly business. Kind of Victoria’s Secret modelesque, which is a pretty common look for a guy to prefer I’m guessing.
I’m posting about this today, because it’s our 5 year wedding anniversary! We got married at a little chapel in Las Vegas where I wore my hair like a Victoria’s Secret bride might. It’s these special occasions that I want to look extra pretty for him, so I’m trying to decide how to wear my hair for our date tonight! Down and wavy or down and straighty?
Does your love have a favorite hairstyle?
One of my favorite ways to wear my hair, is pulled up (full up fat twist below, but it can also be a bun or any other up hair) with my guys down. My guys are all the little wisps around my face. It gives it such a romantic, natural look. And who doesn’t love a little romance?
These guys are supposed to look accidental, but they are very intentional. They were undercut to be at just the right parts of my jaw and neck. I prefer some at the hollow of my jaw, the corner of my mouth and just past my chin. My stylist friends and I have a million names for them. I have always called them “guys”, but others call them “fall downs”, “friends”, “wisps” and my favorite- “man catchers”. The “man catcher” is for the guys that fall right around your mouth, all sultry like.
These are pretty easy to do on yourself, and I think I’ll do a little tutorial pretty soon! I don’t usually recommend cutting your own hair, but these are easily covered/blended if they don’t turn out exactly how you like.
Do you like to have some guys around your face when your hair is up? Or are you more of a sleek lady?
I have recently realized that a lot of people share my same opinion about NYE…it’s not that cool. In fact, I’m not really going to do anything if it requires me leaving my apartment building or neighborhood. It’s cold, it’s packed with tourists and it’s hard to get a cab. So when Jen told me a few weeks ago that she wanted to throw a party, I was very excited because she is my neighbor just two floors down. Talk about “Friends” right?
After listing the reasons I hate NYE above, now I’ll list the reasons I love it:
Fancy hair, Fancy make up (I always wear fake eyelashes), Fancy clothes.
So after work, I came home to get fancy. Jen and AmandaBlair came up and I asked them if I could do their hair. I was feeling a half up theme for the night. I did a cute little “hair bow” flare on myself, which felt quite festive, then I did ABs and halfway through her hair I heard a Gwen Stefani song, so at the last second I did a little Gwen Stefani swirl in the back. It was mostly 1960s with just the slightest twinge of a 40s flare. For Jen I did a quickie half up fat twist but with a braid flare instead of a swirl flare. I love a little hair flare, hooray!
Since we are just a few steps away from each other, Jake and I set up a photobooth in our apartment for Joe and Jen’s party guests to come up and partake in. It was pretty fun. We put up tinsel and had props to play with. We had a great time getting our sills out! I even had fun cleaning up all the tinsel the next day.
One perk to being at home is that I was able to do an outfit/hairfit change halfway through the party. Do you every have the urge to do an outfit or hairfit change? I went from my fancy golden girl grandma vintage top, to my flapper princess dress.
How was your NYE?
This is a very ugly picture of me. But I’m very happy in it, and I’m with my childhood BFF 4 E, Deanna, so I don’t care so much about the ugliness.
Also, It’s an awesome hairstyle. One of those looks that I end up doing all day at work when I’m wearing it. My clients are like “can you do that to me?”. I call it the Hippie Halo and I will do a tutorial soonish. I only say ish because tutorials always take more time than I remember them taking.
I wore my hair in a bun for 4 days straight. On Monday, I didn’t have time to shampoo, but I could not wear a bun on top of my head another day because it was hurting. A few of you have emailed me about your hurty buns, so I know I’m not the only one out there with this problem! So, since my hair was such a fright that I couldn’t wear it down, I decided to go with the off centered top knot. It was cute and gave the top center part of my head/hair a rest. The next morning I shampooed my hair for a very long time and told it sorry for doing too many back to back buns.
