Thinking about hair

Today I was supposed to have a date with a potential client it was cancelled just in the morning. Of course I started to prepare myself yesterday to get some nice hair.  So, to not scare anyone away who hasn´t seen me before and plans on working with me I thought about a less dramatic hair do. After all the green dye is irritating enough, even in the creative field. I had seen this youtube tutorial on some blogs and thought that I could do something similar with pincurls:

Well, I was wrong. It looked nothing like her hair. I did 3 barrel curls on top and one row of flat pin curls all facing in the same direction. What I got was something like a page boy, a look I really like on other but that looks strange on me, I think. But I got a really nice bumper bang. I ended up with wearing a bouncy, voluminous ponytail with it that I really like.

Something I´ve been thinking about for some time now is Bettie bangs. I like the look but till now I shy away from it because I feel that it could become horribly clichée combined with the green and the plugs and the shirts I wear when I´m lazy (see pictures above). Also: What if I want to wear an authentic hat? Will it look silly? What about asymmetric hairdos? What about the natural wave I have? Oh my... I tried to immitate something like a Bettie bang to see what it would look like:

I´m not sure, no no. I kinda like this but it doesn´t look like betties so I think it doesn´t really give a good idea. But I like the excentric look of this lady I showed you earlier on this blog, the combination of straight bangs and curly everything else:

I need some reasonable opinions...

Oh, and something else. I´m still experimenting around with my eyebrows. I´m a natural dark blonde and my eyebrows show, so I´m searching for ways to get them dark, matching the dye. I´ve been using pencils so far but that´s not the perfect solution. Today I just used mascara and was surprised what a difference it makes. Is there anything similar like mascara for eyebrows you ladies could recommend?

  1. The bouncy ponytail looks great! Most of the time my experiments do not look like the shown looks on youtube ;-)
    Never tried mascara for eyebrows, but usually I use a pencil and a bit of hair mousse to fix it. Mousse also adds a shiny effect on the brows :-)
