Shades of Black :: Velvet Blazer & Distressed Leather

Hi folks! I figured by now, you are as tired of me talking about weather as I am of the snow in my driveway…so, switching up a bit — let’s talk about hair! 😀

Different hair styles may send out different messages, that is why fashion editors pay as much attention to the hair and makeup styles as they do to the looks on the runway. Long, layered hair is sleek; bouncy, curly hair is romantic; short hair is chic; bangs and ponytails are youthful; a top bun is modern while a chignon is elegant…and sometime you see those half-shaved-half-long hairstyles, they are just out of the ordinary. ^-^

Personally, I prefer long, bouncy, wavy hair, what does that say about me? that I am a true romantic at heart?! In reality, I can only maintain long, straight mane. The other day, I braided my hair when it was still wet (you can see it here), by the time we took photos of the second outfit, I let my hair loose and this is what I get:IMG_1000IMG_1030IMG_1047

Not too bad, huh? It lasted for about 15 hours without the aid of any styling products. I guess that is my solution for waved hair, cost-free and damage-free. If I want those gorgeous curls I see on Giselle and many others, I have to use curly iron, which is another story all together. I’ll save it for the next time., hehe.IMG_1064 IMG_1054

Thank you very much for reading! May the sun comes up everyday and the temperature keeps on climbing! See you until my next post!

      Hehe, thank you, Joyce! I love curly hair but I just can’t have them without major damage to my hair except this kind of make-shift ones.

      Haha, that is because my husband now knows he should hold the camera low to reflect the correct proportion. 😀

      Thank you, Shushu! Yes, the more I practice, the better I get at putting on makeup. I want to experiment more eye makeup techniques, and will share with folks here soon. 🙂
