30 Days of Nerdy Hair

Day 10 – Black Swan

Today’s inspiration is Natalie Portman in Black Swan.

The key to this look is a classic ballerina bun and a killer feather headpiece. I created my own, but one could easily be bought for the craft challenged out there. I started with rhinestones and a string of pearl beads.

Then I took as assortment of feathers including long feather quills and shorter maribou feathers.

Then I took my handy Magna-Tac glue and got to work.

And here’s what I made….

Then I created a sleek and very tight ballerina bun and threw the clip in my hair.

Day 7 – Pretty Woman

Today’s inspiration is Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman. Again, not seemingly a nerdy choice. But I am a total nerd for romantic comedies and this is rom-com at its best!

The key to achieving the look of a hooker with a heart of gold is a curling iron and naturally curly hair. This actually is pretty much what my hair looks like with a little gel, some curling spray and a good air dry.

I did, however, tame it a bit with my curling iron. But here it is.

To those of you who know me well and have seen me rock this many times in the past, all I can say is I’ve never tried tomorrow’s style before… so get ready!!
