Day 19: Kat Stratford from 10 Things I Hate About You
This morning’s choice is one of the quintessential teen movies from my youth starring Julia Stiles and the late Heath Ledger. 10 Things I Hate About You. A modern retelling of Shakespeare’s Taming of the Shrew.
If you are a kid of the 80’s and a teen of the 90’s then I’m sure you did not miss this movie! And if you’re like me, then you definitely dreamed of a long-haired, dreamy-eyed Heath serenading you on the bleachers at your high school. Or dang! How about at the high school in the movie. That thing was a castle. And who didn’t dream of having a live band at their high school prom, instead of a really terrible DJ. Personally… my prom was a big let down. Perhaps if I’d had this hair back then, it might have been a little better. My actual prom hair was pretty disappointing! I did it myself and back then… well let’s just say I didn’t really know how to do my hair very well. I didn’t know what it or I was capable of.
Luckily, I grew up and that disappointing prom became a distant memory. And hey, I learned how to do my hair. Now I just need a fancy dance and a serenading boy. A girl can dream, can’t she??!!
11 days to go, nerds!! Make sure to check back. I’ve still got some good styles left to try. And if you have any suggestions for the next series… make sure to leave a comment below. I’d love to hear your thoughts on styles I should attempt to recreate.
