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!!

Hello my lovely nerds! It’s that time again. A time for 4am wake up calls and an intense relationship with my hair straightener! That’s right! It’s 30 Days of Nerdy Hair. If you need a refresher of what has come before, Click Here. I have yet to repeat a hairstyle. And after this series, I’ll have done 120 nerdy hairstyles altogether. Wow!
I hope you have enjoyed what I’ve done in the past and are ready for some brand new things. I have discovered the wonderful app Flipagram! And will be using it to make little mini step by step tutorials on Instagram. So make sure to check over there for the vids. If you wanna take this challenge with me in any way (everyday or once in a while or maybe you have your own spin) then I encourage you to #nerdinthecity on all social media and make sure to send me the pics! 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!
