9 ♡ Hair & Tape extensions

After ages of deciding what to do with my hair, I finally managed to make up my mind. I've been horrible when it comes to hairdressers' appointments, and I always had odd cuts and now this one is starting to grow out weird, and the ends are insanely dry. I've been trying to use hairmasks, but at some point it can't be helped anymore right?

So tomorrow I'll be getting my hair cut rather short I must say, but it's all for the best! (I keep telling myself it'll grow back haha) I know gyaru is all about the long, curly hair but I do love the shorter styles as well. In my opinion you can pull gyaru off in many ways as long as you got the basics right!

This is what I'm basically aiming for :)

The red part sort of indicates what length it'd be. I will be doing the coloring myself, since I don't want to end up with a horrible color like last time. If something is bound to go wrong, I can atleast blame myself for it haha!

I hope I can find matching extensions to get it styled like that. I know the two-tone is getting a little old, but that doesn't keep me from getting it done :D

Which brings me to the next topic;


I don't know if you have ever heard of it, but I've seen it in Japanese hair tutorials before, yet I had no idea what they actually were. It might be something old I'm bringing up now, but it sort of fascinated me when I came across it.

Basically, they look like this:

A piece of tape with your extensions stuck to it. You need 2 pieces to cover up. Part your hair, place one of extions with the sticky side up, underneath the hair you parted. Take your second extension, and place it above the parted section with your own hair in between, to cover the lower sticky part.

Like I said, I have never tried them but it got me curious. I think it's a pain to take them out (Remember when you'd accidently get tape stuck in your hair as a kid?) but the results seem really nice, almost unnoticable.

Do you have any experience with these kind of extensions? I'm tempted to try them out, but I'd rather not ruin my hair even more.

Also. I'd like to thank everyone for following me! Once I've hit 50 (Yes, only just 50 but I'm still grateful) there'll be a give-away. I hope I got you guys curious :D

8 ♡ New layout & Moonboots .. In summer?

YES! It's finally up; My new layout featuring Mipotan! The second outfit is one of my favourite coords. I have also added a shoutbox to the sidebar, please check it out!

And now the weather is gradually getting better, it's time to clean out my closet! A sales post will be coming up featuring d.i.a. dresses so keep an eye out!

I tried out my new blusher by Sephora, even though it's not really clear in this picture. I love it to death, it really gives your cheeks a rosy color, and it stays on perfect! I also bought this jumpsuit, which is perfect for warm weather.

I hope everyone is enjoying the nice weather! 
Right now I am looking for suggestions to blog about, I seem a little inspirationless these days. So if you have any, please let me know!

Also, what's up with this thing about wearing moonboots in summer? I was looking trough the new EGG and I spot Kanako wearing an outfit, combined with moonboots. Interesting..

I'm curious to your oppinion about this. I've always found moonboots kind of cute since they make your feet look all small (In case you have very big feet haha!) But I've never considered wearing them in summer..


7 ♡ How to straight a synthetic wig.

Finally a (hopefully) useful blog entry!

I grew a little bored today, even though the weather outside is lovely, the wind is blowing way too hard to enjoy the sun. Another reason was the fact I wanted to have a straight wig. Most of the wigs I own are curly, or wavy.

Ofcourse, I could have ordered another one from Ebay. But why not work with the things you have? It's a cheap way of .. recycling old items? Either way, this is a fun and fast way to turn your old wig into a new one. (Note; This is a synthetic wig, NEVER use a straightner on a synthetic wig because it'll melt!)

What you'll need;

» Curly wig
» Big comb or brush
» Spray to untangle hair (I used one from Gliss Kur)
» Water cooker (Or if you're really old fashioned, boil your water..)
» Conditioner
» Something to put your wig on (It needs to be straight in order to get the curls out; I used the showerhead)
» Hairdryer

First, comb out your wig. It's easier to use a big comb. Make sure you get the biggest tangles out of the hair. You can use the spray so it's easier to comb trough it. No need to worry if there's still bits of tangled hair, you get to comb these out later.

Once you're done with that, boil the water in the cooker or the old fashioned style (I'd say, get a watercooker haha!) Make sure the wig is hanging down straight when you pour the hot water over. Don't worry, your wig won't melt! Wet all of the hair, before you put the conditioner in. Carefully comb trough it. Don't pull the hair, you don't want your wig to end up looking horrible.

After the first time of pouring the hot water over it.

I repeated this step about four times. Rinse, comb trough, put conditioner in it, comb trough and rinse again. Once you think your wig looks straight enough, make sure you wash out all of the conditioner, and carefully squeeze the biggest amount of water out of the wig. Comb trough once more before you start blowdrying.

Straight enough? Time to blowdry it.

Be careful when using your blowdryer! Make sure the temperature isn't too high, this way you could end up ruining the wig after all when small bits melt together. It might take a little longer this way, but in the end it'll be surely worth it.

Carefully dry your wig, make sure that you comb trough the hair every once in awhile to make sure the hair won't get tangled again. You could use the spray you used in the very beginning to make sure the hair looks soft and untangled.

Et voila. Your wig is done!
When the wig is still wet, you can also try to cut the ends a little straighter, so they won't end up looking like rat tails.

I hope this was useful. Any questions or want to let me know your experience, please drop a comment
