Project Audrey, part three

This is going fast from a whim to an obsession! I am at the point where I need for it to come out right, because at this point, it's a matter of pride that I will figure out how to do this!



I am nothing if not persistent!


Anyway, today was try three-- I washed my hair and set it in curlers while it was wet, put some smoothing serum on it while I wrapped it, then sprayed the whole thing when done. I think it took about 25 curlers to do. gildedage wanted to know, but I can't really count. Yes, ninepointfivemm, it's more than one package. I think it's more than two packages.

In other news, LEASE IS SIGNED. Shit. Tomorrow I have to write the biggest check I have ever written in my life-- 2 months rent plus 15% broker's fee. I have the money, but man. But my dad came with me to sign and he really liked my broker, which is good. He gave the poor guy such a hard time, too. But Michael, the broker, was really good-natured about it and my dad told him that if they end up looking for a place in the city he'll come to him first.



In other other news, work is going amazingly well. We are getting so much shit done. But it's nervewracking. I so want this to succeed, but I'm afraid that someone else is going to come out with a product like ours who already has an audience, like one of the bigger services, and we'll have no chance. It's scary. But we're working our asses off. Wow. It's such a high.

RESULTS






Dude, check out the hair.

It is not quite Audrey Horne, but it is way closer than my usual hair is. Hers is still more wavy-- and there is the fact that her hair is probably a good six inches shorter than mine at its longest in the series.

More progression underneath. Plus! Tea hams it up for the camera!Collapse )
HOORAY I AM SO HAPPY IT WORKED.

I have to say, the fact that this method a) took a lot less time despite it being the old-fashioned way and b)cost a lot less money means I really should have tried it to start instead of futzing around with all those curling irons.

And now, for your listening pleasure:
