30 Days of Nerdy Hair-Nerdvember

Day 8: Joan Harris from Mad Men

Today I chose Christina Hendrick’s character on Mad Men. The 50’s and 60’s were all about back combing and height in a hair do.

To acheive the kind of height needed I turned to Big Sexy Hair’s back comb in a bottle.

Now I just need a condescending attitude and a well placed cigarette.

Day 24 – Betty Draper

Today’s inspiration is January Jones’ Betty Draper from Mad Men.

A surprise trip to Rome thanks to Don’s new Hilton business allows Betty to let out her inner Anita Ekberg—she drops in on a local hair salon in the Italian city to give her this Alexandre Paris–style towering bouffant, complete with rhinestone bow at its center. She pairs the elaborate coiffure with a seductive rope-y necklace, black strappy evening gown, and—a Betty Draper first!—a totally nude lip.

Start off with side swept bangs and a very high pony tail.

Then secure the end of the pony tail with a hair tie.

Flip the bottom of the pony tail up and under and secure it. Then create a tiny bow with a small strand of braided hair.

And then you are ready for a jaunt to the 1950/60’s.
