30 Days of Nerdy Hair-Nerdvember

Day 19: Shirley Temple

“Animals crackers in my soup, monkeys and rabbits loop the loop.”
image

The key to achieving this little darling’s look is curly hair and a bow on your head. Dimples couldn’t hurt!

Day 3: Minnie Mouse

As you’ve probably gathered from previous series’, I am a big nerd for all things Disney. So today I chose the first lady of the Disney empire, Minnie Mouse.

Now my ears are just hair buns and my bow is tipped to the side, but it still has that happy Minnie feel to it.

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.

image

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

Today’s inspiration is Robin Scherbatsky’s 80’s, pop star, alter-ego Robin Sparkles on How I Met Your Mother,┬áin honor of the season premiere yesterday.

image

I started off with a roll of white tulle.

image

Then I made a large bow headband out of it to really give that 80’s look.

image

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!


To start this off, I curled my bangs up as much as they would go. This was a bit difficult with mine because my bangs have gotten pretty long.

image


Next I made a little bump in my hair right behind my bangs and tied a classic black Barbie bow in there.

image


Next I fluffed up my ponytail and curled the pieces so it was very full.

image

Finally I put on a pink dress, pink lipstick and tiny bow earrings. Very Barbie!!
