FabMoms, can you believe Valentine’s Day is just a few hours away! Why am I so excited you may ask, it is after all just another day and besides, celebrating V-day just means spending more money we just don’t have, right. Not if I can help it! I’ve been sitting here, wondering just how I am going to make myself look absolutely fabulous tomorrow and spend the least amount of time and money doing so. I know that as mothers, we don’t have that much time at our disposal and even less time to spend on ourselves. So I went and found a look, absolutely gorgeous, costs very little to no money at all and will take you less than 30 minutes to do.
I don’t know about you, but I love the classic look. It’s both timeless and elegant and with my help, wont need a make-up artist or hairstylist. You can do it all by yourself and fool everyone by thinking you’ve just spent the day shopping and being pampered 😉
Remember,we’re moms, but we’re women first. And a happy woman is a happy wife is a happy mom!
Happy Valentine’s Day FabMoms!!! xx
Get the Audrey Hepburn look in less than 30 minutes:
Smokey Eyes (5 minutes)
See, it does not have to be difficult and time consuming at all! Next…
The perfect Red lips (5 minutes)
The Audrey hairdo! (10 minutes)
· Medium to long hair
· Blow-dried straight hair that has some volume
· Sectioning clip (see photo)
· Lots of bobby pins
· Shine spray
Clip the top section out of the way.
In a messy, rough way, create a mini-French twist using the bottom section (see inset photo No.2) and pin with bobby pins. Don’t worry about what this looks like; it will be covered eventually.
Once the bottom is secured, release the top section and create a side part.
Tease the crown area of your head to add volume. Spray hairspray underneath that teased area for hold.
Gather the top section as if you’re going to make a ponytail, but don’t. Instead, tuck and roll the section inward into a French twist.
Using several large bobby pins, slide them along the inside seams of the twist to secure. Using smaller bobby pins, secure the outside of the French twist seam by tucking them into the hair.
Step 8Smooth out the front if it looks messy then do a spritz of shine spray followed by hairspray.
The Vintage Vamp Hairdo! ( 10 minutes)
Using a large-barrel iron, curl the bang section of your hair forward.
Clip the section into place (see inset photo No.1). We’ll revisit it later.
Pull the rest of the hair into a tight, low, side ponytail. Make sure that it’s bump-free.
Using the curling iron, curl the whole side ponytail in an upward angle.
Once the ponytail is curled up, spray it well with hairspray, then roll it up toward your scalp and secure it with
Once the roll is secured, take the clip out of the front bang area, allowing the big curl to fall.
Using a fine-tooth comb, smooth the front section over to the side the roll is on (see inset photo No.2). After combing it a couple of times, it will turn into a nice retro wave. Once that happens, spray with hairspray, then bobby-pin the ends to the roll.
Finally, spray all over with hairspray and
