Hello my loves!
For as long as I can remember I have always admired women with curly, wavy or tousled hair. There’s a certain kind of freedom from tossled locks. I suppose that could be my wanna be bohemian coming out in me. There’s a restless spirit inside me that I choose to free by wearing my hair a little tousled.
I remember as far back as middle school (because this is when I took notice of my own appearance) that I always loved the girl with not so perfectly feathered bangs. My idea of beauty was not exactly like everyone else.
In the summer I wore my hair long & loose. And even better yet was real beach waves! I felt so glamorous with my mermaid hair flowing down my back after a day splashing in the water.
My inspiration for my look comes from a few key women. Most noticeably Meg Ryan. Who can begin to describe her gorgeous wild hair…
I remember thinking how cool it was that an adult had messy hair. In reality I don’t think Meg is that much older than me.
And then is the ravishing Michelle Pfeiffer. Selina Kyle, Catwoman, from the Batman Returns movie, was my girl crush. Those tousled locks were purr-fection. Me-ow!
Even tamed waves fabulously frame her beautiful face.
More recently my focus shifted to Sarah Jessica Parker as Carrie Bradshaw. Who didn’t want to be a writer and live fashionably? Always the trend setter, Carrie kept you enthralled with her sense of style, including her notorious waves.
Sorry for the chest exposure. Even still, how lovely…
I choose this look because I want to be uniquely me. Sometimes I feel as though I may be pushing the envelope, but I know who I am and how I see myself. I may work as a receptionist, but I am anything but boring!
Is there someone you admire for their sense of style? Post in the comments below.
