Had a small glitch with the white hair spray and the white hair chalk. Turns out the hair spray I got was just silver glitter, so while you can’t see it in the picture or the video, I am completely covered in sparkles. Which I don’t consider a particularly bad thing! 😉
You guys!!! Nerdy hair is back. I’m doing things a little differently this time around. Mainly because I’ve discovered that Florida does not like my hair when I attempt to do anything fun to it. Seconds after I step outside, every effort to look like I did something to my hair is instantly lost in the inevitable cloud of humidity.
That being said, I couldn’t let Florida kill Nerdy Hair! 😉 So I’m attempting to do tutorials and make these styles happen, but just a little ahead of time. That doesn’t mean I won’t try to do them in real time sometimes, just that it probably won’t look like I have.
Without further ado…here it is. 30 Days of Nerdy Hair!!
Day 1: Princess Leia from Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope
Another brand new thing I’m trying…daily videos for the whole 30 days!!! Check it out:
This one ended up being a favorite of the series. It’s just so much fun. My only beef with Glenn Close’s Nova Prime is that she was greatly underused in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. One hopes that Nova Corps and especially Nova Prime, will have more of a prominent role in future Guardians installments. Especially with someone as epically capable and talented as Glenn Close. Either way, seeing her in the film is a treat in and of itself and this hair is sufficiently glamtastic!!!
I couldn’t possibly begin to explain how I did this one. I just started twisting and rolling and pinning and eventually it resembled Nova Prime’s hair. So I gave myself a big pat on the back after that one!!! Give it a try sometime and share those pictures!!
Disney characters always have great hair!! And not only the older ones, but the kiddos as well. So today I picked young Elsa. Just starting to learn about her magic and when she freely used it with no thought of the dangers. Little Elsa lives life with very little fear.
This one is super easy to accomplish. You need a black headband and a nice braid in the back. And it’s an easy everyday style that doesn’t scream Disney princess. (Although personally, I love when my hair screams Disney princess. It’s so much fun!!)
I just started Vikings so I’m not too far into it yet, only episode 3, but I’m already crushing on Ragnar Lothbrok. The mighty viking who chose correctly when he married Lagertha!! They are one seriously awesome couple, at least by episode 3!!!
I opted not to shave my head and get tattoos, but still. I felt very bad ass with this style!!!
When the time comes, you must lead with your hair, not with your heart.
Day 22: Susan Pevensie from The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe
The Chronicles of Narnia was one of my favorite book series when I was growing, and has remained so. The story of Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy Pevensie: the everyday British children that would become the kings and queens of the mythical, far off land of Narnia. It was such a magical story. And I still check the closets to see if I can find that magical land. (I haven’t yet, but hope is still alive!)
The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe was the 2nd book in the series, but the first movie that was made. And it was such a beautiful adaptation. Sadly the series wouldn’t make it past The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. Which is a real shame because the stories, written by Clive Staples Lewis are richly and beautifully written.
Aslan bestows the title of Queen Susan, the brave upon plain ole Susan Pevensie when she is crowned a queen of Narnia. Don’t worry, if you don’t have a spare crown lying around, like I do, you can easily just substitute it for a sparkly headband of some kind.
“Once a king or queen of Narnia, always a king or queen of Narnia!”
Day 16: Padme Amidala from Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith
I was going to save this one for Thursday, the 18th, which will mark that we only have 6 months till Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens opens in theaters. But today I woke up with great Padme hair texture, so I had to bump it up a couple days. Padme Amidala starts off in Episode 1 as the queen of Naboo. Her hair is very strategic and massive. It’s part of her costume and her persona as queen. It’s meant to intimidate. By Episode III she has softened her hairstyles, rocking curls and waves. The hair becomes far less intimidating and much more feminine. Representing a change, not only in her political status (she is no longer queen of Naboo in Ep. III) but also in her personal life. She is married and pregnant, about to give birth to her and Anakin’s child. This is a much different Padme and her hair is a reflection of that. Hair can tell you a lot of things about a person!!
I used a clip in place of her headpiece and just let the curls cascade down. I also added a coral lip gloss like she’s wearing in the above picture. Now all I need is a flowy, Naboo nightgown and a very angry, confused Jedi husband and my journey to Padme cosplay will be complete.
Is anyone else so freaking ready for The Force Awakens??? Is it December yet???
A couple months ago, the news broke that Netflix and John Stamos were working on a Full House spin off, Fuller House. Not only will Candace Cameron Bure’s, DJ Tanner be coming back to the small screen, but her sister Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin) and of course, DJ’s best fried, the one and only Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barbara) will return as well. (Is anyone else as excited for this show as I am??)
The key to Kimmy Gibbler hair is stacked scrunchies and volume. If you have curly hair, let it run free. If you have straighter hair, tease that sucker till it stands on it’s own. Then stack those scrunchies on top of your head and bam… you are officially rocking the Kimmy Gibbler.
