Oh, no! Not at all! I just thought that would be a funny title.

Well, after going out yesterday and buying all of my gear to try and recreate my “new do,” it was time to get up this morning and…well, give it a go! Funny story.  Years ago when I used to try and style my hair, I got so fed up with such poor results, I actually threw my blow dryer in the garbage and never bought another one!

Also, I got up yesterday and had a shower and just let it dry on its own to see how it would look.  Well! I certainly regained more of my curls with this style but oh, nooooo.  With this style it needs to be kept as it was cut (and styled.)  With letting it go on its own and the curls? Either I can’t leave the house or I need some kind of bloody hat!

Now, I suck at all things “girly.”  As above, styling my hair has never been my forte.  Okay, except when I was a freaky, goth teenager.  I did a not so bad job then.  I’ll tell you, those crimping irons and I had a lot of fun way back then! Not to mention tonnes and tonnes and tonnes of hairspray! I used to go through wow…who knows how much a month?

Anyway, I think I managed a reasonable facsimile the first time around? But the cost of all of the “femme’ing up” business I am doing! Vanity, they name is money! And I haven’t even gotten to my clothing shopping yet! I mean, my blow dryer cost me $60CDN! Then there was the appropriate styling brush, $15CDN.  I needed some more shampoo but I balked at buying both a bottle of that and conditioner so I went for a combo deal there.  I guess that wasn’t too expensive? Under $10CDN for sure.  And product.  Well…yes.  I decided that since he used some in the shop and since it needs to be dried straight to avoid me going all “frizzy,” some gel?

Guess what I bought? Dippity-do™!!! Oh, come on! I just couldn’t help it.  The name has always made laugh ever since I was a child.  And it’s been around forever.  A product that has outlasted everything on the market can’t be that bad, right? Also, it was really cheap for a huge bottle–and I don’t need that much of it.  My hair is very thin!

Good lord, maybe I didn’t see it but speaking of ancient product, I may have even bought Brylcreem™!!! No.  I don’t want to look like John Travolta just walking off the set of “Grease.”  However, I realised today that I am going to need some hairspray as well.  Man, oh man! Or maybe, “Woman, oh woman!”

So, yes.  Maybe not so bad for a first attempt? But not as good as my stylist did.  Well, of course not.  Also, since I am right handed, the left side looks much better. *laughing*  I hopefully should get better with some more tries? I even put on some of my better clothes–well, a bit more fashionable? Black jeans, a cute little hoodie (blue with these little yellow and white stripes down the sleeves that says “London” across the front–haha–I love you my Brits–well, my Scots…my folks in the U.S., Canada…oh, hell, I love you all!) A favourite pair of my Dr. Martens boots, too.

Crazy.  All dressed up and nowhere to go?
