I Will Rock This, No Matter What

August 7, 2010

new ring. new pink toy. my Pinkie is love. LOVE. Thanks Happy Pill.
Left: my hair 3 years ago and the outcome that I expected
Right: hair now :( and showcasing new ring from SM Dept Store
fresh haul: Mossimo Velika Lace-Ups. Pre-order @ Power Retail

So what's a girl to do when she's had too much of a crying showdown prompting her to throw out her self esteem on its well-mannered ass? She gets a makeover. And she gets it fast, like, right then and there without even thinking twice.

I had wanted to get romantic beach curls, and by beach curls I mean Digital Perm. But since I was running out of time and the nearest available stylist was just a call away instead of driving all the way to the city for an hour or so to visit my favorite korean salon, I jumped at the opportunity thinking that the do I had perfectly pictured would likely be the outcome.

But judging from the pictures, I'm pretty sure you lovelies know how devastated I was after my makeover fiasco. So please don't flinch. You'll be seeing this hair for a long period of time til I outgrow them and chop them all off. *spazzes*

But since I'm already sporting it, I will rock this one no matter what.

turquoise dotted top - thrifted .5 dollars. random pink cardigan. DIY Levi's shorts.
Guess black belt. gifted turquoise pendant. random turquoise cuff. animal ring - SM Dept Store.
Mossimo Velika Lace-Ups and Forever21 Cat's Eye Sunnies - pre-order at Power Retail

  2. don't worry! promise, my perm started out just... wrong!! (got them a year ago.) it was too frizzy, & not the nice, soft curls that i had been expecting. but luckily, my curls eventually loosened up after a month or so, & now, i think i don't ever want to go back to straight hair! and just as long as i style it properly, it'll cooperate.

    i don't think yours is that bad! i think you're working it! you seem like a poised girl, so i'm sure you can pull anything off. :)

  11. I'm sure they will loosen up to sexy beach curls in a few weeks. That happened to me far too many times before. :)

  12. your curls are not too bad toni!
    i actually have curls still my roots but i just blow dry or iron my bangs straight...hehehe. just make sure not to comb or brush your hair when it's dry to avoid getting them frizzy...and just apply hair lotion and allow to air dry using your fingers. :D wehehe, tips from an eternal curly haired gal! :D

    the stuff at power retail are really really tempting...maybe for christmas i'll get myself stuff from there!

  13. I agree, Toni! I had a digital perm (from Tony and Jackey-is that your favorite korean parlor too?) and it was really shocking at first. Maybe a little serum and time will smooth it out. The curls will drop and all. I think it looks much better than my perm did!

    Great retro looking shades, girl!
