How are you feeling?

Snotty. Yep, I’ve come down with the leurgy (thanks HWSNBN). But it’s OK, I’ve got smurf juice* to keep me going.

I signed up to do a hairstyle every day for a month – so the show must go on! No matter how rough I feel or how out of shape my hairstyling skills are 🙂

What hair style are you failing at trying today?

French twist.

If this hairstyle had a personality it would be…

Sophisticated, classic and polised. French twist est tres chic, n’est pas? And as far away from the messy chaotic style that I call my own.

It is however, exactly the kind of vibe you want to channel when your feeling very grotty, unattractive and the only other person who will see you is the postman. Total lempsip hair.

What do I need?

Comb

Bobby pins

  1. Back comb hair
  2. Pin one side of the head
  3. Twist, twist, twist the hair over your hand
  4. Tucking the top bit in.
  5. Pin like crazy to secure

How long did it take?

45 minutes. But I was feeling very slow and sluggish and kept on frakking my hair up.

How easy it? Could Rowan do it?

Soooo tough. I could lie to you and pretend it was down to being ill. But even if I was well I would have struggled with this one. I just couldn’t get the twist positioned high enough on my head.

Show us the finished product?

Less chic and polished more woman in a wind tunnel. Two hair fails in a row! Time to pull something ridiculously easy out of my hat for tomorrow.

Also do you know how hard it is to take photos of your hair when you keep sneezing?Here’s one of the (many) outtakes:

HWSNBN’s verdict:

HWSNBN is away 😦 so not comments from him I’m afraid.

Remind the nice ladies and gentleman at home why you are doing this again? 

Fame, fortune and sweet charity:
