My cousin’s wedding is in just under two weeks. It is the first wedding in the family for quite some time… so I want to set the “right” impression. And of course by “right” I mean to look slightly unconventional and generally cause disapproving glares.
It’s not as if I’m about to go for a full-blown Mohawk. However, I certainly want to have my hair restyled into something that isn’t the current mop and could be classed as slightly “unconventional”. This desire for the unconventional led to me purchasing a copy of Hairstyles Only yesterday. And while a great deal of the styles featured did look amazing… there wasn’t much that looked like it would work with my often wavy and curly hair.
So this morning, I began to think a little bit more outside the box. I’m a geek. This is pretty obvious from the things I like to participate in, play, read and watch. So… geeky female characters from film, comics and/or TV who have interesting hairstyles.
Ramona Flowers’s main hairstyle from the film version of Scott Pilgrim vs. The World is what I have been drawn towards and this is partly because the style has a high chance of working with my hair type. Admittedly, I won’t quite be going for the colour or colours she has during them film, though I do plan to attack it with some of Lush’s Caca Noir henna hair dye after it has been cut, and aim to make my hair darker with a blue tint. (It’ll be the first time I’ll have ever used a henna hair dye, so it could get very interesting.)
It’s probably a good thing that I’m not aiming for the bubblegum pink hair – it would clash horribly with the red dress I’ll be wearing.
