The penultimate day left in this week's Hair diaries. I will miss the fun trying all these looks has brought, but one thing for sure is that I will not miss the extra 20-30mins it takes to get ready for work, trying to get this all looking half decent. Today's look is in homage to my ultimate desire to have big huge hair...like Afro big! Alas, that I was not blessed with so my sporadic trips to the salon and convince my friends there to tong my hair had to fill the void. So today I present to you...The BIG Hair...with a parting.
The picture above was taken from the Nathan Jenden S/S 2011 show, and all the girls had huge hair tamed into two pigtail bunches. This looked was pretty big that season with the likes of Marc Jacobs and Topshop following suit, and embracing that 70s Roller Disco girl within us all.
So what do you do when you don't have tongs? Or don't have curly hair? Or only have 15mins (I slept in today) to do everything? Well, I will tell you...BACKCOMB! Yup backcombing and hairspray were my friends this morning for my attempt...I think I was too embarrassed to try and copy this look completely so here is my diluted version...Big hair pigtails!
