This was me on thursday waiting for the bus:
But there are some days where I go all out and actually set my hair. I'm trying to be more consistent with it so I thought I would show it here. Maybe this will motivate me more.
WARNING!!! YOU WILL SEE PICTURES OF ME WITHOUT MAKEUP!!!
Please don't judge :(
My morning actually starts the night before. I take a shower and set my hair in foam rollers. I use a setting lotion in my hair and also spritz lightly with Lotta Body as I roll. Its very diluted with water as my hair curls pretty easily.
I use half inch rollers going back in my bangs and inch rollers going down and forward on the sides. Then inch rollers going down and under for the back.
Then I wrap my head in a scarf and Chuca and I head to bed:
In the morning I take out all the rollers and loosen them up with a pic.
At this point it is a frizzy mess. I use a curling iron to smooth out my bangs and get rid of any dents. Next I spritz with hairspray and tease it. Then I form a roll going back and then twist it forward. This way it forms into more of a barrel roll instead of a loop. I pin it and hairspray it and make sure its smooth. Then I begin the process of brushing out my hair. I have a round bristled hairbrush that I use and just brush down and forward. I also brush it out against my hand. This process takes a while and I usually do it in stages. While my hair is calming down I take a break to do my makeup.
I won't show the whole process here but I will show all the products I use:
I am a total makeup addict!! I do a full face almost every day. Primer, foundation, concealer, powder, eyes, cheeks and lips. I'm am not an au naturel girl!
After that I finish my hair. I brush it out more and add some pomade to smooth it out and I use a comb to define the front curls. I want the crown smooth with 'fluff' on the bottom and more defined curls closest to my face. When I'm happy with it I spray lightly with hairspray.
Now I was going to wear a vintage skirt today until I heard the weather report. Hot!! So I decided on something a bit lighter.
This is more appropriate for work anyways.
Shoes-Ecco (I think I shall get these in black!)
Here's a closeup of the accessories:
Fruit cluster earrings!!! Yay!!
And thats it guys! It took me an hour and half to get all that done including feed the cat, walk the dog, make coffee, and do all the other morning things I do. Not bad IMO. I'm trying to do this more often instead of being lazy. This look takes time and commitment, especially the hair, but its worth it. I always want to make myself a priority. I think thats an important part of being a woman and we should never give up the good fight!! Haha!!
