I apologize for the sporadic posts. I'm hoping for a tripod for the holidays, so hopefully, I'll have more "Daily Outfit" posts for you soon. ;)
For now, though, I could use YOUR help.
When it comes to "beauty", I consider myself to be okay with makeup. I have a collection that probably rivals that of most drag queens, and I use most of it. I have every color of the rainbow in eyeshadows, ranging from the brightest yellow to the blackest-black. After literally practicing for years at it on myself, I consider myself to be good enough at it that I get compliments on it from time to time.
Hair - that's a different story.
In the past year, I've started blow-drying my hair...at age 27. Before that, I didn't know how (nor did I CARE to know how) to blow dry at all. I've used straightening irons, which I thought was pointless on my poker-straight hair til I actually tried it. I'm pretty much a newbie when it comes to hair.
While I love the color and cut of my hair right now more than I ever have, I long to make it into a style I LOVE. A style that I've loved for literally decades now.
This is my hair now:
Layered with bangs, a bit past my shoulders and as straight as straight hair comes. My hair is also thin-ish.
Now, this is the style I want to achieve (and this is the part where I hopefully don't freak Miss Ashley out):
(His hair - not hers)
Essentially, I want BIG, TEASED hair. I've tried attacking my hair with a teasing comb and hairspray, only to have it be as flat as a pancake a few hours later. I've tried blow-drying my hair upside-down. I've tried volumizing shampoo, conditioner and mousse.
I'm out of ideas!
So help me, oh-so-fashionable ones out there. ;)
