A Good Hair Day

There's just something about getting your hair just right that puts an extra bounce in your step. Know what I mean? I'm having one of those days today and after spending some quality time with the beau, I am in a fabulous mood.

"New" steam curlers from Clancy's mom this weekend. They're old school but seriously they work better than any curlers I've ever used before.



Rollers in...



Makes for a great hair day!



Off to work in style. And in a new print dress ;)



Oh and another thing that can make your day? Packages. Got Trish's book in the mail, can't wait to crack it open. Oh the perks of knowing the author! Thanks for the copy and congrats on it hitting shelves early!

My mom had curlers just like that! But she never had curly hair...What the heck was she wearing them for...?

Anyhow, your curls look cute. :)

Golightly said...

Super cute hair! I love the old school rollers - did they take forever to heat up? I remember using them when I was younger - waiting for the black dot to turn red was forever a wait

A Margarita said...

I love those days that start off on the right foot.

Alexa said...

you, with the hair, love it.

remember caruso curlers?!?! with the steam?

or was that just a me thing??

dreamgrrl said...

hahaha i love your old lady look with the curlers in! The hair turned out great! I wish i could get my hair to do anything other than be pin-straight. ho-hum. Happy thursday!

Stephanie said...

I love putting hot rollers in my hair, but HOLY HELL, what time did you get up this morning!? Also, you put your curlers in very neatly - mine always look extremely messy.

pessimisticredhead said...

Purty! Your hair is so bouncy. I hope the day lives up to your coif!

Arielle said...

You know whose hair doesn't do that? Mine! (and probably others). Lucky!!

brookem said...

how cute are you?! love the dress too!

lspoon said...

Look at you hot stuff! :)

theselittlemoments said...

You know I always support curlers. Pretty!

Passionista said...

Your hair looks cute! Wish my hair would curl like that.

Trish Ryan said...

I was totally admiring your cute hair (and envying your ability to use steam curlers without scalding yourself)...so funny to see my giant bullfrog after all those pics of pretty :)

If you didn't already have a copy, I'd trade you for hairstyling lessons!!!

Marriage-101 said...

Beautiful! And that books sounds interesting! I'm gonna check out Trish's site and put the book on my "to-read" list.

Ashley D said...

I used to love when my mom curled my hair with her rollers! Your curls look way cute, btw. :)

Le Petit Chic said...

Oh my gosh, my mom had those curlers! Still does actually! I wish my hair would hold a curl.

Hazel said...

My hair would never hold curls like that! But, after I got my hair cut a few weeks ago, I've realized that my stylist did such a great job that I only need to blowdry and not straighten anymore! YES!

Jess said...

Your hair looks great! Being naturally curly, I have never used rollers, but it looks a lot more interesting than hair straightening techniques.

k said...

i just myself a new set of curlers and i've been dying to have an opportunity to use them. your curls look great!

Laurie said...

Pretty! Do they last all day?

sparkel said...

Aw pretty!

cdp said...

You look hot, mamacita!! I definitely agree how having a great hair day can just make everything that much better. Hope the rest of your day is as great!

Maxie said...

I'm jealous about the book! I wanna know an author

Rachel said...

Your hair looks TOO cute! I'm so jealous! And a cute dress. Definitely makes for a fantastic day!

Katelin said...

luckily i don't need curlers, but those do work wonders.

1218Blog said...

Nothing like good hair to make all in your day a.okay!

Looks good!

Hiya, I'm Kristie. said...

I used to have hot rollers just like that and when I had long hair they were great.

You look great and so springy!

Ripe for Reading said...

Fab hair!!

Deutlich said...

The hair looks fantastical.

Julie said...

OOOOh pretty.
I think I need some of those.

Jamie Lovely said...

Love it! I wish I didn't have uncurlable hair. Yes, I just made up a new word - uncurlable.

j*amy said...

haha awesome! curlers don't usually do normal things in my hair, but i'll use just a regular curling iron to get ringlets [i think i use a 1"]. i did this for christmas eve, new years eve...super super cute, i thought...:)

L Sass said...

Love the old school rollers! They work better than any of the fancy kinds.

janet said...

Oh, definitely, the older the curlers the better. New ones just don't get very hot! Apparently in the 80s it was totally normal to burn your fingers off while rolling up your hair.

You look hot, lady!

Tia said...

yeah, old school rollers are THE BEST. the ones with the stupid velvet or whatever on them suck big time.

yay for pretty hair!!

brandy said...

I JUST BOUGHT CURLERS YESTERDAY! Wow. I'm far too excited about this. I just got really excited about loving every strand of my hair tomorrow.

And I will. If it turns out half as awesome as yours did. Have a great weekend Michelle!

Kim said...

Aw aren't you cute! I'm not so sure how my hair would react being in tamed curls. That looks like an intersting book too.

ashley said...

My hair never looks that good. :(

MrsTwink said...

I've ALWAYS wanted to try curlers but can never get it to sit properly... plus may hair just hates me and refuses to hold any sort of curl.

Its super cute though!

Your hair looks great. Way to rock the outfit!

And that book? Funny enough, I was just reading another blog where Trish will be guest blogging next week. AND, I'm in the midst of reading her book, too. Hoping to make headway this weekend!

Vanessa said...

Fabulous hair! I ordered the book late I think, mine hasn't arrived yet! Soon I hope!

Larissa said...

Aren't you just the cutest 50's housewife ever!

You are just too cute, Michelle!

That's all I have to say. =)

nancypearlwannabe said...

Cute hair! My hair would look like that for about 12 seconds before reverting to it's naturally flat state.

Megan said...

Hey pretty lady! Amazing how great hair can turn the day around, no?

Yoda said...

I have hair that is 0.5 in long. Every day is a good hair day for me ;-)
