30 Days of Nerdy Hair

Day 1: O’ren Ishii from Kill Bill

Welcome back to my blog series: 30 Days of Nerdy Hair. In which I attempt to recreate 30 hairstyles from movies, television, popculture, comics, video games, etc.

Last year was such a success that I’m bringing it back a little eary this year.
I’m always looking for suggestions, so comment below if you have any thoughts!

To kick off the series I chose Lucy Liu’s O’ren Ishii from Kill Bill.


This look is pretty simple. Start by parting your hair a little off center. Create a bun in the back and add chopsticks. For realism, a little blood on the chopsticks goes a long way (though I don’t personally recommend it.)


The most important element to this style is sleekness. O’ren Ishii dishes out serious assassin bad-assery without a hair out of place.
