Day 18: Laura Cameron from Pan Am
Today is really random. Not only because this show was cancelled after just 1 season three years ago, but also because I never actually watched this show. But I saw the commercials when they came on and I always like the time period and the hair!! It’s all about the hair. And the 1960’s had great stuff going on in the hair department!
This actually qualifies as a fill fledged bee hive, but my hair can never seem to get that high, no matter how much I tease it. But you get the idea. Tall hair, lots of volume, pouty attitude and if you have a pearl necklace then throw it on for extra 1960’s flair!!
Check back tomorrow for yet another nerdy hair style. We only have 12 to go. Where has the time gone?
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!!
Make sure to check back tomorrow for another brand new nerdy hairstyle! And head over to You Tube for my flipagram!
Day 3: Ali from Burlesque
Happy Monday, nerds!
Today I’ve gone with Christina Aguilera’s character in Burlesque. This is by no means a must see movie, but if you like musicals and and Christina, then I think you could find enjoyment in it. Plus… Cam Gigandet never hurts a movie with his presence!!
This style presented a few challenges this morning. Mainly, my hair is not long anymore. So this is the short hair version of this style. But it works and is really fun to wear out and about!
Make sure to stay tuned for tomorrow’s style! And head over to You Tube for all the videos and mini tutorials.

I’d love to have you along for the ride!
Without further ado. Here it is:
Day 1: Josie from Josie and the Pussycats!
A quintessentially, terrible high school movie that I absolutely loved when it came out in 2001. I was a high school senior and all I wanted to do was go join a chick rock band! This movie starring Rachel Leigh Cook as Josie along with band mates, Tara Reid and Rosario Dawson, went a long way to helping me believe I could be a funky rock star if I wanted. (Clearly that message got me far in life!) Fun Fact: These ears are official Josie and the Pussycats merchandise from back when this movie debuted. Definitely bought them and kept them all this time. I guess I always knew one day I’d grow up to be Josie! Ah… dreams.
Regardless of whether or not it deserves a vote at the Worst Movie of the Year awards or not, it was fun. And personally that’s all a girl like me really wants, is to have a little fun!

Day 8: Joan Harris from Mad Men
Today I chose Christina Hendrick’s character on Mad Men. The 50’s and 60’s were all about back combing and height in a hair do.
To acheive the kind of height needed I turned to Big Sexy Hair’s back comb in a bottle.
Now I just need a condescending attitude and a well placed cigarette.
Day 6: Lucy Pevensie from The Chronicles of Narnia
Sorry I missed yesterday. I was sickly. But I’m back today with the youngest of the Pevensies, Lucy.
All you really need is a good side part and a tiny little bow.
Day 4: Lady Edith from Downton Abbey
Poor Lady Edith. She may be the jilted, wallflower of the Crawley family, but the girl has good hair. As we in America eagerly await season 4, I chose to spotlight Lady Edith today.
My hair has grown out quite a bit since I first cut it. So in order to get closer to the length of Lady Edith’s hair I had to pin up my ends, creating more of a chin length curly bob.
Day 2: Frida Kahlo
You can be a nerd for just about anything. And history is just one of the many things I can nerd out about. So today I chose a historical figure in the art community, Frida Kahlo.
She of the braids, ribbon, flowers and unibrow. I decided to dump the unibrow and just do the hair.
Day 1: Wilma Flintstone from The Flintstones
Welcome to a brand new series of 30 Days of Nerdy Hair here in the month of Nerdvember. The big news is… my hair is short now. So I’ve chosen 30 short friendly hairstyles to try. This will be interesting!
First up is Wilma Flintstone. She of the giant pearl necklace and the perfectly coiffed top knot.
Here’s the finished product.
