Home of the Homemade: Etsy!!

Most Beautiful hair

People Magazine recently released their list of the world’s most beautiful people.  Beyonce won the coveted “Most Beautiful,” and I certainly can’t argue with that.  She’s amazing in all facets.  I perused through the list and came across the vivacious and stunning Christina Hendricks.  I’ve always thought of her as a modern day Marilyn Monroe, […]

How To Style Your Hair like Zooey

I’m a big fan of Zooey Deschanel as an comedienne and a great beauty (aren’t they one in the same, though?).  I also like bangs; they’ve always been flattering to my facial features – if you have a longer forehead like me, bangs are a good way to balance out the shape of your face – plus, bangs make you look younger!  

I want to wear my hair down for the wedding and I do want it to look too styled, but rather loose and pretty.  I saw this beautiful photo of Zooey Deschanel and it will definitely be taken into consideration when I style my hair.  Image

Yes, I am going to “do-it-myself.”  Luckily, the Internet has a plethora of how-to-(insert whatever you want) tutorials and I found one that shows you how to style your hair specifically like Ms. Deschanel (click link to learn more).  I have all the tools except for the hot rollers.  I priced some hot rollers at Target and they range from $14.99 to $49.99. Then, I researched the prices of a hair styling at a popular local Aveda salon, Gervais, to discover that an event do is $50+ and a bridal updo is $200+!!!  I’m sure they do a fantastic job and make you feel amazing for your wedding day, but if you enjoy styling your own hair and/or do not want to spend $200 or more for one hair do, opt for some free online tutorials and purchase some hair products and accessories.  Sure, a really good set of hot rollers is about $50, but you get to keep them and use them over and over again for future adventures in hair styling.  I will post again once I obtain curlers and give this tutorial a try.
