Transformation Tuesday: Hair Edition

For those who know me, they know that I love doing my hair. I love trying different styles, lengths, colors, etc. I look back at certain hairstyles that I've had and I sometimes cringe at the those that went wrong. However, how will you ever know what looks good on you without trying it first? I typically do sew-in weaves, but I recently learned how to make wigs. I love changing my hair because it creates different looks. When my hair is the same for a certain period of time, I get bored. I like to spice things up, from big curls to long braids to blonde tips. 
Versatility is my motto when thinking of a hairstyle. I rarely repeat hairstyles, unless I really loved them.

I've recently cut and dyed my natural hair and I love it, but I think that I've had my hair like this long enough. I'm ready for a change, again. I love Rihanna's current hairstyle, and I would like to try it on myself. If I did go for this look, it would probably be the edgiest hairstyle I've tried. If I don't like it I could just do something else to it, it's only hair. I would also like to try Ombre hair. I think that I make a statement by changing my hair frequently. I feel like it says "I am not afraid to take risks." It is impossible to be different from everyone in the world, but you can definitely try. Don't be afraid to transform your look, you're bound to find something you like.

OOTD: Outift of the Day

This is a picture of my best friend, Marissa, at work. She is a very fashionable person, in my eyes. She wears what she likes and does not care about what others may think. If this outfit looks vintage, it's because it is. She received the blouse and pants from her mother, who has had these items for many years. Also, the way she styled her hair blended well with the outfit. Overall, I give this OOTD two thumbs up.

One reason why Marissa is my best friend is because she believes in many ideas that I do. One idea is being yourself and doing what you want to do. Some people may not like this outfit that she wore, but she liked it. It's creative and different, and shows that she is not afraid to stand out.

When you wake up in the morning, think should about what will make you happy. Do not try to satisfy other people because it is impossible to please everyone.

I want Marissa to be an inspiration to those out there who are afraid to not only think, but step outside of the box. Be free. Everyone should be able to express themselves in the way they want to.

If you like this look and have no one older to collect "vintage-style" clothes from, Mod Cloth and Shabby Apple are two websites that have cute vintage clothing. Otherwise, there are plenty of clothing websites that appeal to your particular taste. I'm sure you will find something; it's not called the World Wide Web for nothing.

About This Blog

This blog is about different aspects of a typical, young woman's life. Fashion, hair, and makeup, but also college, work, and relationships are important. Some people focus on more than others, however, this blog focuses on all of them. I developed an interest in this topic because all of these ideas are important to me. The clothes I wear and how I do my makeup and hair defines who I am. My education and my occupation displays who I aspire to be. I have a unique perspective on these five aspects of life, because they have a symbolic meaning in my eyes.

It is an old concept that one cares about either their physical appearance or education. However, the age-old “nerd” theme has been abolished. Sure some “nerds” may not have a very "good" sense of style, but not everyone. I consider myself a nerd, however others may not. This is because do not look like the typical brainiac. However, I love school and studying. I desire to go to graduate school for social work and law school after I finish my undergraduate career. I am a nerd but I have my own fashion sense.

I also want people to know that it is all about being themselves. It does not take a great amount of money to look (and feel) good. Then, what may look good to one person may not look good to someone else. Wear the clothes that you want to; style your hair how you want to; pursue the career that you love. All of these aspects of life are individually modified according to each person.

The purpose of this blog is not only to give people an insight of what is important to me, but also help them understand what is important to them.
