Good hair day? New hair day!

25 Nov

Still pretty much nothing happening in the sewing room here.  It became a dumping ground when I cleaned up for Thanksgiving (the “real” one in October 🙂  ) and there has been no time at all to clean it up.  But good news on the hair front!

I bought two new hairpieces from The Head Shop some time ago and spent a loooong time working on them to get the look I was hoping for.  The first one looks like this and the second one is this one.  I didn’t take photos while doing the work, but will get some the next time I do the process.

They are really cool pieces because they come with several ways of putting them on.  There is a mesh wig “cap”  that is maybe 5 or 6″ across when fully opened, elastic drawstrings around the edge so you can make it bigger or cinch it up and tie the elastics around your own ponytail or bun.  Then there are flexible metal hair combs that you can use to secure it plus a big claw clip, which is removable.

The simplest way to use them is to do your own bun, pop the piece on top putting the claw clip over your bun and tie up the elastics.  It would likely be secure enough for a typical evening out.  Of course, our evening of dancing is not quite  a classy dine and dance to a softly playing jazz band!  And aside from one of the top amateur ballroom ladies, who has inexplicably started wearing her hair in a low ponytail, ballroom hair must be secured, smooth and seriously styled.

After a couple of failed attempts and some creative thinking, here is the result:

These were taken after our club’s closed competition and you can see that it is held at our local recreation centre, which also has a lovely pool complex!  We took first place in Waltz, Tango and Quickstep, second in Foxtrot, which is fun in spite of it being a very small field of competitors.  Many thanks to the top couples who stayed home!  LOL!
