So I scoured YouTube for a few tutorials and found something I liked that seemed easy enough. I've done up-dos before, and I know how to french-braid. How hard can this be?
So I set out my styling
|Well, except for the toothbrush. Unless I get desperate.|
First things first: putting a dollop of mousse the size of a duck in my wet hair and blow-drying it upside down.
|I look like a Whitesnake video.|
Not bad! So I kept going, only to discover that my hair had lost its will to obey me.
|I can't tell if it's bored or rebellious.|
Yikes. Maybe it'll look better if I shake them out a little bit.
The higher the hair, the closer to Jesus, I guess? Whatever. So I tried the side braid -- I would have taken pictures of my three attempts, but I don't have the 12 arms required. It didn't work, needless to say, and by the end of it most of the curl had come out of my hair. Time for Plan B.
|I'm weak. And high on hair spray fumes.|
...and tried to pin the curls back. Alas, I had no more curls to work with, and it looked like shit. In my desperation, I threw it into a sort-of side ponytail and just started haphazardly pinned it into the messiest bun I could think of. I didn't even look at it. And what do you know... it actually...
Even though my actual hair for the wedding may not look anything like this, at least I know I can salvage a disaster with a combination of alcohol and not caring.
Cheers, Sarah and Shawn. See you soon!
