Day 9: Hercules from Disney’s Hercules
It isn’t just the Disney Princesses that can cause hair envy. Sometimes the Disney men folk have great hair too, actually a lot of them have great hair! Case in point, my man, Hercules. Check out those curls!! He could accessorize like nobody’s business! Yep, Herc sure knew what to do with that gorgeous mane of ginger hair!
I’m sad to report that my hair did not quite go the distance. The second I walked outside into the rainy, humidity my Herc curl fell like the Titans against Zeus. I don’t really use hairspray when creating these hairstyles, but perhaps in this instance it might have helped.
Zero to Hairo (ok maybe that one was a bit cheesy!)
Day 8: Catwoman from The Dark Knight Rises
Today’s hair-spiration comes from the newest Batman franchise. Specifically Anne Hathaway’s Selina Kyle/ Catwoman.
Sadly I couldn’t wear the cat ears with this today because I have to sell wedding dresses to brides. And frankly, I don’t think they’d appreciate my effort at authenticity. So I wore a plain black headband in place of the ears.
Day 5: Lucille Ball from I Love Lucy
Today’s inspiration is dedicated to my sister-in-law, Caroline, who love, love, loves I Love Lucy!!
Who doesn’t love her though… am I right?
In order to accomplish this I wore my hair in little knots to bed last night to create a curlier texture to my hair. Especially my bangs. It was all about that puff of bangs!
Then I arranged the bangs in a sort of circlish configuration, threw on a meddlesome housewife headband and put the rest up in a twist.
Voila. Transported back in time!
Day 5 – Jackie Burkhart from That 70’s Show
Today’s inspiration comes from Mila Kunis‘ Jackie Burkhart from That 70’s Show.
Not a particularly nerdy choice, I know. But I wanted to be diverse in the hairstyles I chose. And hippies are certainly diverse. Plus this look can also be used if you are going for an Almost Famous look or someone from Hair.
This one is extremely easy to accomplish. Just straighten your hair. Once again I turned to my trusty Chi. Once pin straight, I crafted a headband using a peacock feather I got from Michael’s, an earring and a leather necklace. But you can make this easily from any materials you have laying around. (In true hippie fashion) And any old headband worn across the forehead will accomplish this look.
