Day 19: Shirley Temple
Day 26 – Belle
Today’s inspiration is Belle from Beauty and the Beast. Incidentally, she is the Disney princess I most identified with as a kid. Brown hair, nose in a book… my kinda princess.
I found the perfect Belle bow at American Apparel.
Then, I started rolling my hair back starting at my bangs and secured them. I made a low pony tail and then threw the bow in.
Day 14 – Robin Sparkles
I started off with a roll of white tulle.
Then I made a large bow headband out of it to really give that 80’s look.
Then I just curled a bunch of the pieces on top and teased it a little to really give it volume. (The 80’s were all about volume.) I attempted to crimp a few pieces with my straightener. But that did not work out. I recommend using an actual crimper for that.
Day 9 – Secretary Barbie
Today’s inspiration is Secretary Barbie. And come on… you can admit it. You played with Barbie’s way past the appropriate age. Wait… That was just me? Ok that makes sense!
Regardless, Barbie was one of my favorite toys growing up. Despite the argument against her (unrealistic body image portrayal, no good jobs, no underwear) I loved her. She was pretty and had cool clothes. I bought into it. Still do! But Barbie has come a long way from just being a secretary. She’s a teacher, a lawyer, a designer, a dolphin trainer, a mermaid, the list goes on. So here’s to you Barbie!
Next I made a little bump in my hair right behind my bangs and tied a classic black Barbie bow in there.
Next I fluffed up my ponytail and curled the pieces so it was very full.
Finally I put on a pink dress, pink lipstick and tiny bow earrings. Very Barbie!!
