Just wanted to write a little post about something fun and different to usual.
I don’t know about you but I make a real pig’s ear of pretty much anything to do with my hair. No matter how many YouTube hair tutorials I (try to) follow and no matter how many times I pause, rewind or replay… my hair still ends up looking WORSE than it did before. Which if anything is quite an achievement really.
If I blow dry it… it goes frizzy
If I leave it to dry naturally… I look like Splash
If I curl it… I look like Goldilocks (not in a good way)
If I put it up… I look like I’m still at school
If I straighten it… I look like a towel drying on the washing line
Nowadays I’m at peace with the fact I can’t take control of my hair. In hindsight, maybe I don’t want to learn how to create an ombre French plait with a pink fringe and 14ft extensions. And so, being the Disney fanatic that I am, instead, I prefer to get my inspiration from somewhere a little more magical….
So here’s a little appreciation piece for our Disney ladies *sigh*
Introducing Ariel (The Little Mermaid)…
How A-bow-t this then to kick off? Seriously, who can pull off a bow that size if at all? Also, let’s just take a second to appreciate the hair colour, a real redhead!
I tried it once. It’s just not the same and I had to visit my throwback photos of University to find it! Yes, before you ask…I was team Edward (Twilight)
Leaving the length aside this is just amazing but seriously, has anyone else tried to make this happen without looking like a floral bush? Or is just me that looks like a garden centre? No? Just me? Super…
Next up, Jasmine! (Aladdin)…
Now, I’m not referring to the luscious classic Jasmine look as who has hair that long and luscious, really? That just won’t work for me. So here is her ‘damsel in distress’ high ponytail accessorised with a simple gold crown and oversized Dorito shaped earrings.
Stinkerbell (Peter Pan)…
A simple bun, how hard can it be? Well, to me it’s darn impossible. No matter what she does it stays in place and still looks perfect. Ergh!
And here we have Elsa (Frozen)…
This darn girl just cannot get it wrong. Why would I not be surprised if she just woke up like that? Apart from the perfect hair, I really feel we have a lot in common. I’m blonde, she’s blonde, she’s an ice queen, i’m cold all the time, she’s Elsa, I’m Emma…. just uncanny! We’re basically the same person.
Snow White (Snow White & The Seven Dwarfs)…
Who else can pull off a bow with a cute little bob? Certainly not me, I did try the black dark hair thing… it didn’t go well for me.
Who doesn’t want to be a mermaid? (Peter Pan)…
The mermaid from Peter Pan has the ultimate dream hair. My only hope is to move somewhere that would think starfish in your hair is acceptable. I feel some weird looks would be headed in my direction if I gave this one a try….
Oh Alice (Alice In Wonderland)…
This is a more of a day-to-day look. However, this has to be my favourite. In fact, I’d definitely wear the dress too…
Janey Jane (Tarzan)…
Such a diverse lady. Up or down, half up half down…. what a classy filly.
