Happy 6th birthday Nuffnang! I missed out on last year’s birthday bash as I became part of the Nuffnang family just right after the bash so I was extremely excited to be able to make it this time!
It came with a theme! Any party/gathering/outing that is tagged with a theme ups the game for me. I LOVE THEMED PARTIES! That’s why Halloween is my favorite festival! It’s one of the few times of the year where outrageous is legitimate and welcomed.
The theme was Retro 60’s. How fun! I’ve somehow never been part of a retro-themed party before – Shanghai checked, Uniform checked, Pyjamas checked, Color-coded checked… woah so many I can’t remember! Apart from the time where I totally went against the blue-white themed party at NuffnangX’s launch because I forgot there was a theme LOL, I’ve always put in effort to look the part for themed parties. 😀
I decided to have one focal point; the hair was the defining factor. 60’s hair was bold, poofy, wild, and girls loved to accessorize with ribbons and hairbands.
Where else to go get the best effect other than Salon Vim Bugis? This was how I looked prior to the hair teasing, pinning, spraying, styling. Why my cheeks so chubby?? ( O.O )
My usual hairstylist, Weng, was busy so he got Tar to do my hair. I showed Tar some pictures of the look I wanted and Tar did a fantastic job! She said “I like doing this kind of hairstyle because in Thailand the girls like to go out and party and they always go salon to do their hair”. Haha! Tar is from Thailand and it’s my fortune but everyone’s bummer that it was her last day! She left to go make babies.
No bumpits were used to create the bump. Just pure teasing and crimping and spraying and styling. Must’ve used up half a can of hairspray. =O
