photos of my salon visit at Carmen's Salon

This past Saturday, I visited Carmen's Salon www.carmenshair.com for a 1960's roller set and style, as I had a Halloween party to go to.  It was going to be an amazing party, so I wanted to look my best.  (A few days prior, I had stopped into Carmen's for a root touch up).

Here are the photos from my roller set.

Of course, when I was under the dryer, I painted my fingernails and toenails a pink shiny color to match my costume.

Me after Carmen brushed out the curls.

After this, Carmen pinned my hair up.  Then I went home, changed into my costume, and did my makeup.  The result?


Oh, how I would have loved to wear that costume and have my hair like that everyday!  (I think that I was born in the wrong era).

I listed a couple of things with ioffer.com  The direct url is:


When you click on the Victorian shirt ad, you'll get to see a couple photos of me, in the shirt and with my 1950's updo.  :D


I'm back to work on TruKenna's machine perm.  I'm at 18 minutes.

Oh, and before I forget, Steve sent me this very cool link:


You'll find lots of vintage hair styles and beauty salon, retro how to guides,  and old advertisements.  Thanks, Steve!


I picked up a microphone stand today.  Maybe this week or the next, I can start recording my parody of "Wannabe" by the Spice Girls and "Don't Cha" by the Pussycat Dolls.  I promise it'll sound better than the "Get a Haircut" version that I have up as a ring tone on www.mxyer.com  :)

Weird Al Yankovic is my influence.  ;)  http://www.myspace.com/weirdal
