RAUL gives me grief about dressing like a man and not taking it to the “next level” with my “look” for 1992. he suggested fake hair. i had never done it before and seemed slightly excessive and weird for me to do. i just like being comfortable and not having to think about things. although, RAUL brought up a valid point and since i was satisfied yet bored with looking the same all the time…i came to a conclusion. i would do a fake ponytail. i would have to go against every natural instinct in my body to try something new. my natural look would go on pause for 1992.
just when i thought my “90′s hood chick” look was put to bed…i rolled over and shook the hell out of the bitch to get up. i am bringing it tonight especially for 1992.
FAMOUS PHONY PONIES that have inspired...
last night PHOENIX (makeup artist and hair stylist galore) helped me get my best AROUND THE WAY GIRL ponytail together. ELLE came through for support.
*BEAUTY SUPPLY WAREHOUSE. i haven’t been in one of these since i was in middle school, when i would go there and buy LUSTER’S PINK LOTION. eeek.
*some popping lip gloss. behind it are some acrylic nails…which i simply cannot do.
*wigs galore. peep how the heads are all black!
*when we got here and i saw all the options of hair, i almost backed out. i’m just too much of a stubborn bull, opposed to change. ELLE reminded me it was for one night and it was just a ponytail.
i was too scared the 26inch would make me look like a real drag queen so i conservatively opted for the 18inch…which i regret.
*ELLE suggested some LOUIS VA-TON wraps, but i had a vintage aNYthing bandana on ice waiting for this occasion.
*haha, YAKI! that’s funny.
*with a magic wand in tow, PHOENIX transformed this precious little man into a…
*…a pretty little hood chick! after straightening my own hair, PHOENIX took 1B European Hair and stuck it in my ponytail.
*my baby hair is pumping!!! for real, so fall back.
*”AU NATURAL” vs “I HAVE TO WRAP MY HAIR AND SLEEP ON MY STOMACH TO PRESERVE THIS DO”. luckily, i do sleep on my stomach.
after the easy breezey process, OSCAR, SHAYNE and RAUL came over. RAUL and SHAYNE kee-kee’d about my hair. i started flipping my pony around like a femme queen, and my inner diva came out quite NATURALLY
thanks to PHOENIX and the angry woman behind the hair counter that insisted on telling us the prices of the hair when we asked to see them. she’s special!!!
