So it is 24 hours after i coiffed my curls, and after sleeping, running, and primping my curls are doing great. I had them in a ponytail for 1/2 of the day, but they are still doing fantastic. Check out my bookmarks to see the products I used.
So, I found this great video that demonstrated how to get red-carpet curls with a straightening iron. Here's the link: http://stylebell.wordpress.com/2008/03/26/beachy-waves-with-a-flat-iron/
And here's how I did it, with wonderful results:
So I started with hair that I washed the day before, and started below my ears. I put the rest of my hair up into a bun, and in 1" sections, straightened the hair half-way down the shaft. Then, I twisted the iron 180 degrees and SLOWLY pulled it down my hair. Going faster will give you wave at the ends, but I wanted a curl. By pulling 1-2" sections out of the bun I worked my way through my entire head. In the top half of my head, I started the curl just after the iron reached my ears, so i have straight on top, curly to my shoulders. I decided to curl my bangs, but that's personal preference. When my curls had cooled, I flipped my head over, shook, then flipped back up and misted all over with hairspray. Voila!
If your curls get droopy, revive them by working your fingers into your roots like you're making a ponytail, and then lifting. Beautiful curls all day long!
Ok, so a post from a few days ago titled "Amnesia" was a mistake. Because I was so tired I got my illnesses mixed up. I MEANT insomnia. My bad.
Easter Day may have come and gone, but pastel nail colours still reign supreme. I found some great colours here:
The colours are: Revlon Sweet Nothings in Lilac Lingerie, Opi Nail Lacquer in Funny Bunny, and China Glaze Nail Polish in For Audrey
My favorite thing about spring is wearing white dresses. They're easy to pair with a belt, necklaces, heels, whatever you want.
Check out what I found when surfing the web. A site about spring makeup trends. Check out this snippet.
A dash of peach, coral or subtle red blush on your cheekbones is the way to enhance spring's fresh face trend. Makeup artists put the coral and red blush where bronzers used to sit last season. To get your blush right, start with a peach blush from the lower apple of your cheeks going up to the temple. Then blend in an intense coral or red colour half way from the cheekbones till the hairline to create a subtly graded look. Pick a blush with a pearly accent to it rather than one that gives a matte effect."
Sounds complicated but its a neat idea. Here's the site: http://www.afroarticles.com/article-dashboard/Article/Spring-Rules-for-B...
Right now, it is 1:05 am and I can't sleep!! I have to be up by 9 am.
What should I do?? I'm scared to try sleeping pills because I'm terrified of addiction (even though it does not run in my family).
It's that time of the season folks. I just dyed my hair on Monday from light auburn, to a dark, warm chocolate brown. It was a little extreme for me, so after 2 washes with regular shampoo it has lightened up a bit and I'm ready to really take care of it. Not like last time...
Yup that's right, 13 years and 50 weeks ago, I was a newly born baby!
I'm throwing a spa-inspired b-day party with a few select friends, so if you have any ideas for what I should do, feel free to leave a comment!
