30 Days of Nerdy Hair

Day 24: Ginger from Gilligan’s Island

Today I chose Ginger from Gilligan’s Island. Did anyone else ever wonder where all her clothes and hair products came from. Not to mention the electricity for the hair curlers that were obviously needed to create this hair do. Come on!! I know the professor was always hot for her, but there’s no way curling iron was his top priority when inventing things out of coconuts and palm fronds.

I used my Chi straightener to create this one. But my hair is too short for the voluminous curls she has here. In fact I think she must have packed a few hair pieces along with her glittering gowns. Perhaps that’s how she accomplished this one on an uncharted desert isle. And I know what you’re thinking… “Where’s your tropical print bikini, Liz??” Well it’s too cold to be wearing my bikini out. So plain old clothes will just have to do. Plus I’m not planning on getting stuck on any desert islands any time soon so I don’t keep it handy. (Though maybe I should!!)

We’re in the final stretch. Less than a week left of nerdy hair. I already have the last styles chosen. But I’m always looking for suggestions for the next series. So keep them coming!!

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!!
