Fashion Tip Friday: Icky to Easy Hair

Today there has been lots of running around.
Kids here. Kids there. Kids, kids everywhere.
What can I say? It's summer.
Today has been an I'm-Not-Doing-My-Hair-or-Wearing-Makeup Day, because of the running around.
And I just darn well didn't feel like it.
Plus, I'm about to hop in the shower to get ready for a thing this evening, and why would I do my makeup this morning before taking a shower and washing it all off just to do it again?
Exactly.

My hair is not clean... and not the it-still-looks-okay not clean.
Like, the kind of ick where it doesn't even look okay to just pull it up.
Well, maybe it would... but I was looking for an excuse to wear my Sak Saum Gator, so this was it.
(I'm not sure why they named it that, but it basically can be anything you want it to be. I've worn it around my neck while hiking before.)

This works with any large headband if you do it right. One of my tricks is to pull my hair up high so I don't look bald and sweep a bit of my fringe to the side, pinning it under the gator so it peeks out and gives a bit of dimension.
I also add earrings so it's a bit more feminine.
The sunglasses add a touch of glamour... which if I was really going there I could sweep on some bright lipstick.
But I didn't.
They also *ahem* hide the fact that I'm not wearing any eye-makeup. That's a true celebrity trick, using sunglasses to hide your eyes so you still look pulled together, sans makeup.
Which, I'm not a celebrity... but I can still use their tricks. *Muah-ha-ha-ha....*
(That's the evil laugh, in case you couldn't tell. It's much akin to the sneaky laugh.)

I feel a bit late 50's in this outfit. Maybe funky 50's? Early 60's? Looking at this picture makes me want to pair it with a sweeping, floor-length yet casual dress and say "dah-ling" a lot.



I'm also showcasing my new Sally Hansen nail polish. We'll see how it does. I always get bubbles no matter what I do, and this is supposed to be all polishing steps in one bottle... therefore *hopefully* making it easier for me to get no-bubble polished nails.
(Many have tried to advise me as to what's causing the bubbles, but nothing ever works to prevent them. I think it's just me. I seem to be the variable.)

Anywhoo, summer is here, so let your hair have a break and use my Icky to Easy trick.
Heck, contact Sak Saum, have a party, and buy a few gators!
You'll not only look good, you'll be supporting something good.
