Welcome to Girls Night In.
We’ll be celebrating our female spirit tonight and reveling in the freedom to express who we are with beauty and behavior befitting our respectable selves. We’re going to share the enjoyment of ourselves with each other.
We’re going to crack a bottle of wine or make a pot of tea (if you’re off the booze) and yak about makeup and fashions, hairstyles and diets and we’ll mention the unmentionables, once we get comfortable. Heck, if we like what the radio’s playing, we might even dance.
Flip Your Wig
Have you ever been to a wig party? They are so much fun! Hairstyles say so much about a person. Yes, first the wig has to look like it could be your real hair. That’s a given. But then it’s all about mood, and vibe and attitude. At a wig party, everyone has a nice big hand mirror . An enormous supply of wigs is presented and everyone just free-for-alls into these wigs and starts trying them on. Try long hair, then short hair, try curly then straight, wild colors and bangs. Wigs transform a person. Prepare to take lots of selfies. And do you know the best thing about Wig parties is they’re just as much fun with a party of one.
For fun with wigs go here. This is a beautiful collection called Absolutely Passable. I’m sure you’re going to love every one. The most important thing is to find the fun. Do you remember that wonderful song by Cyndi Lauper, Girls Just Want to Have Fun? Well that’s the mood you want for trying on wigs.
Here’s to super fun girls night in.
In kindness and fun,
“Beauty is about perception, not perfection. You can’t put on make-up, or dress yourself, or do your hair with any sort of fun or joy if you’re doing it from a position of correction.”
from his book, Making Faces
