I persist in suspecting other people have secretly Got Their Shit Together, and if I could only, well, get my shit together a little more, I would Be Like Them and that would be admirable. I am, in fact, reasonbly certain that I /have/ my shit together in many remarkable ways, but man, somehow it just doesn’t seem like it. She said as she tried to get the kitchen clean while keeping the baby from eating the buggy wheels and the pieces of paper he seems to attract like moths to a flame.

Vaguely on that note, I am really not very good with hair. I understand that I am not good with hair because I do not practice being good with hair, and that I do not practice being good with hair because I’m not good with it, but man, I’m really not very good with hair. She said, having spent more time the past week trying to achieve a viable pin-up-girl hairstyle than she has ever tried to spend on any hairstyle in her life. Which is, granted, not saying a lot, but still. I don’t know what I’m going to do about Saturday if I can’t manage something. :p

Indeed so - I think we'll have to remind Catie that any external observer would have to concur that she pretty damned well does have her shit together.

Outsource the hair? I hear that you can pay hairstylists a fee to do your hair for you. At least, that's the rumor.

Not by 9am on a Saturday in Ireland, you can't.

Perhaps you could convince one to teach you a hairstyle you can do by yourself before Saturday? I bet the pros have many neat tricks.

Do you have a Con-going friend who is good with hair? Also an early riser would be good. :)

Have it done on Friday night and sleep in a hairnet... is what the girls did back then anyways! Perhaps then the stylist could show you how to spruce it up in the morning.

How long is your hair now?
kitmizkit on March 1st, 2011 07:38 pm (UTC)
Shoulder length. Slightly longer than in the icon.

I bet that you could pull something like this off:


Which would require a giant flower on a clip, really :) Finding something like that on a headband would also work, I think. And if you can make you've got some curl to your hair, you should be a-OK :)

If you can't pin it up in proper pin-up girl fashion, go for the tousled floosy look, like you just fell of some guy's ...wall.

How To videos?

And your hairspray? ^_-

It is not a lack of how-to videos. It is a lack of ability on my part to do anything beyond spasm wildly when my hands come in the vicinity of my hair.
madmiss on March 1st, 2011 08:12 pm (UTC)
I actually didn't know there were 'so many' how to video's...
I am all agog.

(Awhile back Penny's had these most adorable mini top hats with which would be good, Claire's accessories have them too. They also have large flowers as Pullthestars suggested.)

Ooh, before I forget, G and I are staying in the hotel, so if you need to use our room for Indy during the day, let us know. So looking forward to seeing you guys and meeting Indy!

Have you tried the hair things that you stick on your head, wrap the hair around or through, and then stuff it full of bobby pins? That's how my mom used to put my hair in a bun when I was young and wild-haired. (Versus now, that I am not-young and wild-haired. o.O)
