Project Audrey, part four


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.





So here are the curls when I first pulled them out of the curlers. I totally look like Shirley Temple. Anyway, the curlers seem to have been way more effective at, well, doing something to my hair than the iron/blow dry combo was. Is it the right thing? Not sure!

SCORE. So, I pulled the curls apart a bit and tried to see what would happen. While It's not quite Audrey Horne, it's definitely 1950s ish (never mind that Twin Peaks takes place in the 90s, the girls all dress in 50s-style clothes), and I think the majority of the problem is that I, well, have way longer hair than she does.

Still playing. I did the classic Audrey makeup (red red lipstick, dark eyeliner, silvery eyeshadow) and put on my pearls. And got dressed for work. I also put another coat of hairspray over the whole thing. I did discover that I don't have any mascara! Mascara will have to be purchased tonight!

Okay, now I just feel like a total camwhore, but like I said the other day, pics of me never come out looking very good, and this morning I got a HUGE number of fabulously amazing photos. So I am posting them all.

Look how cute!

This almost looks like it could work more as Donna Hayward hair more than Audrey Horne hair. Either way, I'm definitely in the right ballpark.

Just more pics.

And here are my badass sunglasses that I bought at H&M for $6.50. Also for the party.

I do like making silly faces.



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:
