On March 26, I had the chance to attend a Hot Hair event organized by Michelle from Thou Shalt Not Covet as a photographer slash guest. It was a small gathering of bloggers in the Billiards Room at the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel, and it was lovely. Zoe and I arrived at the same time and were welcomed with glasses of — I believe — rum and coke (I could be mistaken), and canapes made the rounds several times. There was also wine and bowls of nuts and that’s probably more snack talk than you wanted to hear.
Bloggers chatted, tried on hairpieces and wigs, learned about how to care for them and were able to see how extensions and hairpieces could easily alter their look in awesome ways. I myself tried on a wig for fun, because I’d always wanted to know how I’d look as a blonde, and the answer was bad. Terrible.
However, I saw the changes in many of my fellow bloggers’ looks and was very impressed. Xtine and Barbie looked lovely in ponytails, and I particularly loved the curly piece Laura walked out of the event wearing. These makeovers and more are documented in the pictures below.
I don’t know who you are, but I bleeding love this picture and the black and white version too, so I hope you too like it and don’t make me take it down. (I will if you don’t want it shared, and that goes for everyone here. But I’m so happy with how this one turned out! That Jane Austenesque profile, y’all. What a great.)
And then I crashed a wedding showcase, and tried to take pictures of the night lights in King’s Cross. It was only semi-successful.
Everyone went home with a lovely goodie bag; the actual bag carrying mine kind of snapped in half after I put my camera in it… in the middle of King’s Cross, but I got some photos of the goodies in it afterwards.
