beer! [06 Oct 2007|10:50am]

on a whim i went into lush yesterday (they have all sorts of good-smelling natural products) and found this shampoo called "cynthia sylvia stout." it's suppossed to give some weight and definition to curly hair, and the main ingredient is organic stout!! haha, smells like it too! but i used some and it does seem to control the poof a little bit. i'll have to take some pics and post them.

oh, and if any of you are still watching/members of ypsiarbor style, i'm thinking of turning that into a personal style photo-journal and taking a picture of what i'm wearing everyday. (if i can remember to!). more of a personal thing, so i can see what combos of clothes i like, and to track how my style evolves, but comments would always be welcome!

getting a haircut this coming weekend. want to go back to the shaggy-bob-razored thing i had coming back from winter/spring break. so, slightly longer than the bottom of my ears, angled a little toward the front and some long layers all over. but i want something new too - what's the general opinion on lighter blonde highlights? or should i go a different direction and get auburn-y lowlights? personally i think blonde and pale pink highlights would be really cute! any ideas on how to get pale pink - just not leave the dye in as long as recommended? hmm, may have to ask a hair community.

haha, went out to a couple parties last night and 3 different people told me i had hair from the 30s!! ^_^


i've been reading gokinjo monogatari (neighborhood story, prequel to paradise kiss) and now i want to wear big shoes and have bright pink hair!! lol

hopefully will cut my hair sometime this week. same shape, just shorter - bottom of ear length in front and a little shorter in back. again, think amelie without bangs.

and hopefully after that i can get cherie and anyone who wants to help to dye it!! i kind of want to get crazy and do two colors ... not at home right now to look, but i think i've got a bottle of atomic pink left, and the l'orel color pulse in bright red. so the question is - which color goes on top? i'm thinking red, b/c it will fade faster and i don't think pink with brown underside would look cool .... but then again, i could go in a diff direction and do pink on top and blue or green underneath ... too many choices!!

the pink streaks in my hair are still very noticable!! even after 3 months, they are still very bright. i kinda like it though ... i think i would miss them if they weren't there! but seeing all the posts in the fruIts community has made me want to do something neat to it. hm. a haircut is also in order soon.

i think i want my hair like this. minus the bangs. or fringe if you prefer. it won't be quite as straight, but i think it could work. if you haven't seen amelie, her hair in longer in the front and kinda goes into a wedge at the back. ..that doesn't make a lot of sense, so just rent it! rent it even if you don't care about my hair, b/c it's a really good movie!!

ick. this weather is murder for the cute hair. it better not affect the dye i need to use for otakon. but after otakon it needs a cut and i'm trying to think of a new style. i saw jessica alba's in the commercial for her episode of 'style star' and liked it (the blonde 'do) what do you all think?

in other news, one of the art fair artists declared me the 'spitting image' of a 1920's/30s film star. i thought it was pretty sweet. sadly the perfect vintage shoes i found were 135.00...a bit out of my budget. but oh so awesome!!

claire feels badly about not remembering to tell everyone about the awesome hair she had at the fashion show, but at least this way you're closer to pictures!! she had the pros do a 'do for her and it was really really cool!! kinda pinned on the sides and the middle was done up in a faux-hawk - it was very neat with the kimono and corset she wore at different times throughout the evening. of course her mom took lots of pictures, but so did random people she didn't know!! hehe.

and right now claire's experimenting with her hair. she took a shower and then twisted and pinned it all up into little coils. we'll see if it does anything cool or not.

tata!

well, one of the surprises worked. i got a haircut, kind choppy layers thing (it's based off a wig in one of my kera magazines ^_^;;)and at first she floofed it out and it was okay, but not what i had in my head. and of course after that it had all the gel and stuff, so it looked pretty icky till i washed it. but now that i've gotten used to it i really like it. more people noticed than i thought, which is nice. it lays a lot closer to my head (though it still does weird flip things.... -_-) and doesn't blow in the wind*quite* as much.

the other surprise would have been if i'd convinced my mom to color my hair right away with the dye i got. it's some of that color pulse stuff, a bright coppery color. maybe over "spring" break....

if i'm not permanently attatched to the sewing machine by then.... 0.0 less than a month away.....

again...forgetting to update more often [26 Jan 2005|05:41pm]

yay, my hair looked cool at the con! it kinda got all over my white shirts i wore when i washed it, but all the dye came out when i washed the shirts. if i ever get my pics back (refer to personal LJ for annoying details) i'll get them scanned and posted. the red has mostly gone since then...fading to orange, which isn't bad. i'll let this wash out and be natural for a while, then i'll do bright pink again, i think.

i generally like the haircut i have now, but i got a sugesstion for a different one recently - the one where it's kinda long in front and gets progressively shorter till it's only a couple inches long on the back. i think it's an awesome haircut, but i'm not sure if my hair would cooperate. i've had it short before and it just turns into a curly, fro-ey mess, with no real shape. plus, if i cut it, i would loose the alice-ness that makes it so awesome to begin with. hmm, dilliemas and choices.

i guess i've been forgetting to update...sorry! claire got a haircut...sometime over christmas break, so it's back to chin length. and yesterday chelsea dyed it for me, so it's red now!! yay! it's a really pretty red too..no matter that it got all over the towel..and the shower...and my neck...and both our hands... ^-^'

i'm doing alice cosplay this weekend, and i know somehow has a digital camera, so perhaps i will get my butt in gear and post those when i get them.

my hair looked really cute tonight ^^ it's a shame more people didn't get to see it. (refer to my lj for details.)

it's long enough for pigtails, so i started out with those, then flipped them up and secured with bobby pins to make messy little meatball buns. cute-ness!

hm, too bad no one took a pic this time. i need to post some better pics of my hair. maybe i'll scan one of the awful haircut i had in junior high. 0_o

not directly hair-related, buuut

as i was hanging out by the front desk, random girl exclaims "you're so cute!!" i say thanks and smile, and she proceeds to say, again "you're just adorable! i love your outifit - it's cute just like you!"

now if i could earn a degree in cute and get paid for it, that would be something. but this further reinforces the idea that i need to get the shirt from the megatokyo website that says "I.A.C. i am cute"

=^.^=
