Day 10: California Mountain Snake from Kill Bill
I’ve done it. I’ve finally gone and joined the Deadly Viper Assassination Squad. Don’t try to change my mind. The minute I put the eye patch on, I knew that my destiny was set. Can you blame me and my nerdy hair? We can’t help it!
Day 20 – Claire from Jurassic World
By now we all know the awesome power of the mighty dinosaur. No one expected Jurassic World to sweep the box office the way it has. It even managed to kick the Avenger’s collective asses too. That’s quite the feat. It makes sense that something tied to so many of our childhood’s would get this kind of reception (I cannot wait to see Star Wars brush that record to the side.) But aside from the nostalgia, it is a really good movie!! I knew I’d like it. I didn’t know I would LOVE it!!
Bryce Dallas Howard’s, Claire is snooty, uptight, career oriented and single minded. She is far more concerned with the way things work, than whether or not she is enjoying life. It isn’t until imminent death threatens her, her nephews and an island full of people that she starts to show her humanity.
My bob is a little messier. This could be Claire after disaster strikes. A more disheveled, unkempt Claire.
I don’t have a catch phrase for this one except for “The park is open” so just go see Jurassic World if you haven’t already. If you loved the old ones, I really don’t think you’ll be disappointed!
Day 6: Lois Lane from Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman
This was one of my very favorite shows growing up. Superman meets Danielle Steele, who could resist such a thing. Plus it was family friendly which meant I got to watch it in the first place. There have been some amazing Lois Lane’s over the years (and some not so great ones) but Terry Hatcher will always be cemented in my mind as that intrepid reporter from the Daily Planet. Especially in season 1 of the show where she sported this fierce, sleek bob.
As I’ve said before, I have very curly hair. So sleek and straight doesn’t come naturally to this nerdy girl’s hair follicles. Luckily I have my Chi hair straightener for just such an occasion.
It’s a bird. It’s a plane. It’s… nerdy hair!!
Day 5: Gabrielle from Xena Warrior Princess
This might be surprising to you, but I never watched Xena. I’ve seen an episode here and there. But it wasn’t something my parents watched and back in 1995 when I was 13, we watched whatever my parents watched. And Xena wasn’t in the mix. I’ve since come to deeply appreciate Lucy Lawless from other wonderful work (ahem BSG!) And to appreciate this show as well. But I’ve never watched it all the way through. That being said, I really like Gabrielle. Spunky side kick to Xena herself.
This one took some work mainly because my hair is much curlier than Renee O’Connor’s. But I felt like running out and fighting bad guys or something. This hairstyle makes you feel pretty bad ass!!!

Day 10: Bonnie Parker from Bonnie and Clyde
One of the baddest asses of her time. Bonnie Parker is one of my favorite gansters. (Not to make light of the horrible things she and Clyde did.) Played by Faye Dunaway in the film.
You need a hat. And straight hair to pull this on off.
Day 7: Nefertiri from The Mummy Returns
Today’s inspiration is Nefertiti from The Mummy Returns.
But I am sad to say it did not come out the way I wanted. I chose the wrong accessory. The gold color worked but the overall effect of this headband is more Greek goddess than Egyptian princess. Sad news.
