Day 23: Vivian Ward from Pretty Woman
Today’s hair comes from one of my favorite romantic comedies of all time, Pretty Woman, starring Julia Roberts and Richard Gere. This hair appears in the scene where schmillionaire, Gere takes schmrostitute, Roberts to the opera. She wears a classy french twist in an attempt to fit into his fancy pretentious world.
Personally I’ve never been a fan of the french twist. It does tend to be a more pretentious hairdo. What I love about this one is that Vivian still manages to keep it fun with the curly bangs. It’s what makes this hairstyle classy and fun instead of stuffy and boring!! Always put a twist on your french twist!
7 days left, friends. Here we go!
Saturday night was a lazy night of bumming it at home with some ice cream and a bunch of romantic comedies. This is a very fun activity when in a group of like minded single ladies. But I caution watching these movies alone. It’s akin to an alcoholic at home alone with a bottle of Jack. No good can come of it.
Don’t get me wrong, emotional cutter that I am, I love every single one. Even the terribly cheesy Lifetime Originals. Anything with Meg Ryan or John Cusack is my bread and butter. But ladies, we have got to stop. Because I gotta tell ya… the chances of you exchanging letters or emails with a stranger and that stranger ending up as the guy you secretly had a crush on all along…it’s not a thing!
I know you secretly hope that you’ll flit off on a grand adventure to Ireland and meet a cute, sweet Irishman who happens to be single and looking for an American girlfriend. One who, oh yeah… lives in America. Recipe for success!
I know why we buy it. It keeps hope alive for the singletons of the world. We think, “Yeah, but Julia Roberts made it happen so there’s a chance right?” I’m not saying you won’t find love. I’m just saying you’ll probably have to settle for meeting a normal dude at some normal location under completely normal circumstances. And Tom Hanks won’t be within a 20 mile radius. Neither will Rob Reiner!
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!!
