Day 22: The Fonz from Happy Days

I don’t know about you, but growing up with reruns of Happy Days meant the king of cool was none other than Henry Winkler’s Arthur Fonzerelli…aka The Fonz or Fonzie. He was always there to shed a well-timed “Eyyyy” on the situations Richie and the other Happy Days gang would find themselves in.

Here’s my version of The Fonz:

30 Days of Nerdy Hair – Day 14

Day 14: Gidget from Gidget

With summer fast approaching (summer officially begins on Sunday, June 21st), one can’t help but think of sunny beaches, surfer waves and summer swimwear. Gidget is the perfect avatar for the summer season. Her gee-golly gosh goodness will get you ready to do the Twist!

To perfect your summer Gidget hair, you’ll need bangs, pigtails and white or pink ribbon. Then you’ll be ready for some fun in the sun!!!

Day 7: Lorraine McFly from Back to the Future

Is there a nerd alive that doesn’t love Back to the Future. It’s got everything you could want in a movie: time travel, mad scientists, 50’s nostalgia and awesome hair. (Maybe one day I’ll recreate Doc Brown’s!) But today is young Lorraine McFly’s day. Played by Lea Thompson.

This is a fun and easy one. I started by attacking my hair with my Chi straightening iron. Curls are the order of the day. Then I added a little Big Sexy Hair spray for volume. Next I pinned up ONE side and in lieu of baby’s breath,  I used little pearl hair sticks to mimic her hair accessory.
Then I donned my fancy dress and headed off the the dance… no wait I just got dressed in regular clothes and went to work. But in my head, I’m going to a dance. Fantasy is so much better than reality!!

Day 7: Mary Tyler Moore

Queen of the sitcom in the 50’s and 60’s, Mary Tyler Moore was a fashion and more importantly, hair icon.

You need really flipped out ends for this one.

Day 24 – Betty Draper

Today’s inspiration is January Jones’ Betty Draper from Mad Men.

A surprise trip to Rome thanks to Don’s new Hilton business allows Betty to let out her inner Anita Ekberg—she drops in on a local hair salon in the Italian city to give her this Alexandre Paris–style towering bouffant, complete with rhinestone bow at its center. She pairs the elaborate coiffure with a seductive rope-y necklace, black strappy evening gown, and—a Betty Draper first!—a totally nude lip.

Start off with side swept bangs and a very high pony tail.

Then secure the end of the pony tail with a hair tie.

image

Flip the bottom of the pony tail up and under and secure it. Then create a tiny bow with a small strand of braided hair.

And then you are ready for a jaunt to the 1950/60’s.
