So I dyed my hair over the Christmas break since I was so sick of dyeing my hair fire engine red every 2 weeks for fear of the skanky look. Seriously, half the month my head was under a hat because the color was fading and the roots were sprouting. I put it end to that by dyeing my hair my natural color ( kinda funny to dye your hair your natural color). Anywho, the talented Tressa the Hairdressa sent me a whole new batch of hair creations in my new color from her Etsy shop Puppycatmeow. Above are some cute Valentine’s themed hair accessories and I will post soon about the  hair creations. I had to break it into 2 posts since there was so much stuff!My favorite is the Valentine Rose hat! It matches my Valentine’s rose corset from Victoria’s Secret from 1997! Yes, I still have it. And check out the red human hair extensions- pretty cool if I want to go punky for the day or night. Check out Puppycatmeow ‘s shop for awesome hair creations!

recreating a Bjork look!

Princess Leia... yes, that's a bathrobe.

Padme wiglet

mini Bjork Buns

Single ballet-style bun

Dragonfly!

A little box of greatness was sitting at my doorstep again the other day. Yes, a box of hairstuff by the illustrious Tressa the Hairdressa!!! This time it was Princess Leia buns, Bjork buns, a Padme bun and a Dragonfly hairclip that were sent! I love these buns because it has a net underneath that allows you to just put your hair up and then place the buns over your own hair. It’s really fuss-free and you don’t have to have hair down to your butt to do it. Win-Win, dahhhling. Anyway, the Bjork buns are my favorite because I used to wear Bjork buns in high school. Except I had to use like a trillion bobby pins to keep it up. The upside was that I always had a bobby pin for any occasion, like picking a lock or something. Check out the Dragonfly hairclip made of hair! That’s pretty killer! And for all the Star Wars fanatics, the Princess Leia buns and Padme bun is puuuurrrrrfect for your next Comic-Con adventure or just any occasion involving geeks. Check out Puppycatmeow’s etsy shop for her new creations!

So I had a nice package of goodies waiting for me again courtesy of hair extraordinaire, Tressa the Hairdressa! She has a store on Etsy called Puppycatmeow, in case you haven’t seen my older posts. This time she made HUMAN HAIR bangs for me and HUMAN HAIR color extensions. Human hair is pretty damn special, if you ask me. Some Indian woman sacrificed her hair during one of her breaks at her telemarketing job. Wouldn’t it be ironic if the hair on my head belonged to the same damn bill collector that calls me during dinner time? That sh*t should be a movie. Wait, it is! Anywho, the talented Tressa also fulfilled my wishes by making pom-poms or “hairballs” (as Tressa calls them and Mr. Marmar approves) for my head. There are 2 small ones and one big ball! I love love love them. My most favorite is, of course ,the bangs- I did victory curls to look like a manic Stepford Wife or Sally Jupiter in the first photo and then a Bettie Page do for a Rockabilly look (3rd photo). In the 6th photo is a ponytail/fall, that prompted my 5 year old son say, “you look like a princess”. He asked for candy straight after that. The clip-in human hair strands in a variety of wild colors are also available at Puppycatmeow. Above, I wear blue as an ode to Smurfette and white as an ode to…. an old lady, I guess? Check out Puppycatmeow for more amazing stuff!

I know – it’s an overload of ME! Sorry… But I just was so excited by these hair pieces that ‘Tressa the Hair Dressa’ made for me! I mean, they totally match my real hair and gives me an excuse to just throw on a hair piece than actually do my hair. I may never do my hair again. So, starting from the top:

– The Faux Hawk- I got all British Punk for that photo. I hope you can’t see my mom jeans.

-The single braid with bed head- seriously, I was groggy when Felix*  took my photo.

-The Knotty Braid headband- love that name!

-The ‘I Dream of Jeannie’ braids- I tried to blink my way away, but it didn’t work.

-The Wowwy Zowwy braid- It’s so long- I was afraid to go to the bathroom with it.

-My personal favorite- The ‘bird’s nest’ like Marie Antoinette! The nest is made out of hair! Everyone needs a bird’s nest in their hair sometimes.

– The Totally Twisted headband- I was channeling an elegant Axl Rose.

-The large Rosettes- for that ‘old-timey’ look or the ‘I just baked muffins for strangers while on speed’ look.

-And last but not least, A single braid headband- perfect for everyday use.

Click here for Puppycatmeow‘s shop. Seriously, ‘Tressa the Hairdressa’ is the master! And she’ll make it in your hair color!

My friend , ‘Tressa the Hairdressa’, designed these awesome hair/head pieces. I asked her to do a teacup to go with my Alice in Wonderland outfit and she came up with the above photo. Seeing that I love gnomes (like LOVE, I have a gaggle gnomes in my home), Tressa made a mushroom hat for days when I feel like prancing through the forest with my little gnome looking for ladybugs. (What? Doesn’t everyone do that?) And , last but not least, the ‘rosettes’ made of matching hair for a ‘Rose” effect! Those are great because you slide them on and it looks like you had you’re hair done at the hairdressa! You can order these and many others at Puppycatmeow.

PS- I made the photos look like a storybook with the ‘vignette’  and ‘antique’ option on my iPhoto…Good stuff!

PPS- She also did the Lady Gaga Bow for me as seen on an earlier post!

Wig and Hair extraordinaire, Charlie Le Mindu created a lip-shaped wig for his Spring 2010 collection. It could look obscene if flipped sideways. I’m not even gonna go there! I like how there are 3 pairs of sunglasses. It reminds me of that statue in Soho, NYC with 8 pairs of  boobies. The other wig is more than a wig, it’s a fuping mask – Prince’s My Name is Prince style!  That was my jam back in the day! My name is Prince ’cause I am funky! I’ll spare you the lyrics even though they’re embedded in my brain until I die! Plus, I know you know them already. So, check out Charlie’s website– it’s really cool, especially, with the New Jersey  mafia housewife as a reoccurring character as the pages load.

Also, Check out PuppyCatMeow‘s awesome custom headband/ hair bow made by the delightful Tressa the Hairdressa! She does custom work and has a great section of non-custom cool stuff for hair. You may contact her for any wig/hair creations at puppycatmeow (at) hotmail.com ( make sure you put ‘hair bow ‘ in the subject line)  . I LOVE my HAIR BOW! Although, I’m not kookoo for Lady Gaga, that hair bow is the bomb! Thanks, Tressa, for making this for me!

UPDATE: Here is the link to PUPPYCATMEOW’s online boutique!
