30 Days of Nerdy Hair

Day 6: Yvaine from Stardust

If you’ve never seen the movie Stardust, then you are missing out on a  cinematic treat. This movie based on the novel by Neil Gaiman, is funny, romantic and action packed. It’s as close to a modern day Princess Bride as any movie could possibly get. And since it was recently added on Netflix, I have been re-watching it lately.  So I encourage you not only to go pick up the book because… reading is cool, but to also watch the movie because…movies are cool too!

 Here is my attempt at recreating this look. You can’t help but feel like a shining star with this hair. My co-worker said it looked like the perfect wedding hair. Love it and I’ll remember that if I ever need such a thing.

Day 11: Alice from Once Upon a Time in Wonderland

In ABC’s spin-off to Once Upon a Time, Alice finds herself travelling to Wonderland once again, many years after her first adventure down the rabbit hole. This time she is on a journey to save her true love, Cyrus (aka the genie of the bottle.)
Incidentally, when going on an epic quest and fighting big bads like Jafar and the Red Queen, braids are the most utilitarian hairstyle to have.

You start with three braids at the crown of your head and when they meet in the back you braid them together.

Day 30: Mulan from Once Upon a Time

Today is the last day of the series and the last day of Nerd HQ. And I had a completely different hairstyle planned for today, but have decided to save it for a less sleep deprived day. If you know what thay style was then have no fear, I have it on standby for the next series.

So I chose Mulan from Once Upon a Time today. This is fierce hair and I love it!

To create this look, I started with a nice sized puff in front. And secured that with some bobby pins. Then I smoothed the hair by my face straight back and added a little spray to keep it sleek.
Next I created another puff in the back and secured that at the nape of my neck.
