30 Days of Nerdy Hair – Day 27

Day 27: Catwoman from Batman

Many women have donned the famous catsuit, but none were ever so sexy as Julie Newmar in the 1960’s Batman TV show. Michelle Pfeiffer’s is a really close second. Maybe it was really good acting, or maybe that was just Julie Newmar being Julie Newmar. She is in one of my favorite movies of all time, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. And in that movie, you can totally see the Catwoman coming out at times, and that was well before she would play Catwoman on TV. Some girls just have it!

I’ve always thought of myself as way too silly to be sexy, but I’m definitely channeling my inner cat for this one!!!

Day 23: Ragnar Lothbrok from Vikings

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 17 – Jeannie from I Dream of Jeannie

Out of all the classic 50’s and 60’s TV shows, I think I Dream of Jeannie is probably my favorite one. Sure, it wasn’t exactly a tale of women’s liberation. But Barbara Eden as Jeannie was delightful and her never ending efforts to end up with Major Nelson made for very funny television. Plus she was pushing the fashion envelope at the time with her harem pants and crop top! Gotta love a genie with good fashion sense!

I won’t be saying “Yes, Master” all day, but I will try to grant as many wishes as are within my power! Making people happy sounds like fun! (within reason… don’t get fresh!)

Your wish is my command!

Day 14: Gidget from Gidget

With summer fast approaching (summer officially begins on Sunday, June 21st), one can’t help but think of sunny beaches, surfer waves and summer swimwear. Gidget is the perfect avatar for the summer season. Her gee-golly gosh goodness will get you ready to do the Twist!

image

 

To perfect your summer Gidget hair, you’ll need bangs, pigtails and white or pink ribbon. Then you’ll be ready for some fun in the sun!!!

Day 12: Agent Peggy Carter from Captain America: The First Avenger

Now that Marvel’s Agent Carter has gotten a season 2, we will be able to learn even more about Steve Roger’s lady love. Their love story may not have gotten a happy ending, but Peggy never let that sadness define her journey. She went on to be a founding member of S.H.I.E.L.D. And another all around bad ass female in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. She’s strong and powerful, beautiful and vulnerable. Just like any really great character she has layers!

image

 

And her hair is as fantastic as she is!!

Sometimes the best hair for the job, is a woman’s!

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.

image

 

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: Lagertha from Vikings

I have yet to delve into the wonderful world of the History Channel’s, Vikings. But it is a show that has been recommended to me over and over again (I promise I’ll watch it!!!) It’s no secret that I’m an easy sell when it comes to a new show. It usually takes about 25 mins for me to fall in love with a new series. (Except for Orange is the New Black. I gave that thing an 8 episode try and still hated it.) In the case of Vikings, all it took was Lagertha’s warrior hairstyles for me to know this was a show I wanted to watch!! Sometimes hair makes all the difference!

image

The great thing about Lagertha is that her warrior braids are always a little different so you can really have some fun with this! I watched a tutorial from the hair stylist on the show, Dee Corcoran. And she created this cool way of braiding backwards to create the looks for the show.
