Despite the
fact that I’m the worst at getting up in the morning, there’s nothing I love
more than trying out old Hollywood hairstyles that are anything but quick
and easy (though I’m sure with practice I will find a way--it’s in my

get the chance.

I get asked quite a lot about my hair
when I wear it this way, and most people are shocked to hear I do it myself. Well,
