I was thinking something with the flavor of the retro look.
So, the color went on, the curlers went in, and under the dryer I sat.
The stylist was excited about the "look" and her partner just went to a class on wedding make-up.
And I don't know how it happened but when I left there
I looked like a hooker... I kid you not! And an old one at that.
It was more of a look for a Halloween fest than a sweet mother of the groom look.
I got into my car... and not a minute to soon... before I left the parking lot and before I started to cry, I took photos. They were to awful to share. I am not exaggerating here either! The hair was a mess. The lipstick was smudged and the eye color was aqua. I could have thrown up!
Is it not possible to leave a Beauty Shop... looking better, at least a little bit better... than when you entered?
I am severely traumatized. I know I'm not going back.
I am going to have to rethink the whole wedding look idea.
It wasn't until I got an email from my friend Patty that my spirits were lifted a bit.
She had me go check out this blog she found.
It's not new but it is so very sweet.
It is the DottieAngel blog. I also saw this wonderful tutorial on her site that I thought I would share with you.
I swear I am going to learn how to crochet! Between this tutorial and the one by You Go Girl, On the Edge pillowcase tutorial, they have me hooked, so to speak!
But I won't attempt this prior to the wedding... just so you won't hear about some crazed woman chasing down a hair stylist with a crochet hook in her hand!
