Most people love a new hair cut for how good it looks. Don’t get me wrong, I love that part too, but I can’t resist seeing what directions my new do can take.
I’d say this is a typical bed head look. Not far off how I usually wake up on a morning. I do feel quite sorry for whoever ends up having to wake up next to this in the future.
My ode to the world cup. A little David Beckham inspired curtain look. This is about as far as my football support goes, a couple of minutes with an unfortunate throwback hairdo.
Who doesn’t love an awkward comb over? My hair. So much gel was sacrificed in the making of this look, I don’t think my right side has fully forgiven me.
The curly comb forward. I think this has to be my favourite. If I could recreate this and figure out what’s going on in the back, I think I’d consider this for a real world appearance one day. Maybe.
I like to think this look could be the little sister of Sally (American Horror Story – Hotel). The world’s smallest crimpers can be thanked for this outcome. My hair might take a while to forgive me, but who doesn’t love a crimp? It took a lot of coaxing and coconut oil for my hair to consider being my friend after this.
This is why you never get your toast out of the toaster with a knife, with side plaits. The crimping really does help with a bit of upwards volume.
The controlled crimp. Absolutely no idea what’s going on in the back, but who cares? This could work out as a desperate ‘I have no time to tame the bedhead’ look. Possibly. If time gets really tough.
Version two of mild electrocution. A wilder side to bedhead. All the gel and all the crimping went into this amazing style. I don’t know how I do it.
I’d like to call this my ode to Cynthia doll from the Rugrats. Who hasn’t tried to recreate her style on a casual day off? People with something better to do maybe?
It always amazes me a little bit how much you can still do with short hair, even if non of it is any use apart from maybe at a fancy dress party. I should probably work of figuring out some more real life appropriate hairdos for non existent hair, but where’s the fun in everything being serious and pretty all the time?
