Today is the hair show that I mentioned briefly in yesterday’s post. Hair shows are over-the-top runway shows that are judged on a combination of hair, makeup, costume, and nail design. This is the first one I’ve ever participated in, and our theme is “Cirque du Freak”.
I’ve been researching all sorts of circus images, and I found quite a few items that could totally be worn everyday as a fun, whimsical addition to your wardrobe. Check ’em out:
This red blazer from Forever 21 is super cute and circus-y without being over the top.
How clever is this mustache necklace from Etsy?!
I would definitely wear these back-seam tights from J.Crew… I love their old school vibe.
I don’t know if I could pull off these shoes, but I think they’re super adorable! (Get ’em at Modcloth for $65.)
Obviously, you wouldn’t want to wear more than one circus-inspired piece at a time (unless you plan on doing so this Sunday), but when used correctly I think this could be a pretty cool look.
Check back on Monday for images from the show! And have a safe and fabulous Halloween!!
What do you think of these carnival inspired pieces? Would you rock this look or is it a little too costume-y for you? Have you ever been to a hair show? This is my first one, and I’m pretty excited!
