Vanessa, My New Assistant and Model!

Let me introduce you to my new assistant and headband model! Say Hello to Vanessa!
She's having fun wearing some new gypsy, boho chic lace headbands!

I was in need of a better way to display my hair pieces for taking shop pictures. Headbands are not near as cute when displayed on a flat board and I don't have anyone that can model for me, at any given moment.
She started out as an U-G-L-Y styrofoam head from Hobby Lobby. 
Then she got a mod podged makeover, with old book pages from The Three Musketeers.

She then decided she was going with the bald and beautiful look, but quickly decided she needed hair, to help perform her job better! So I found a cheap wig on ebay for her. 

Because hair clips and birdcage veil hair combs need hair to attach to. 
Now, for a funny story about how Vanessa got her name! She was sitting on my sewing table one evening. I was in the living room and Jeff opened the door to the workroom. It was dark, he flipped on the light and I heard a gasp and "Vanessa, you scared me!" 
It wasn't the first time she scared him either! He really thinks I should paint her facial features on her, but I don't want to. I've seen some with painted faces and those are way more scary to me. 

Anywho, I like her the way she is now and don't find her scary.  I think the words all over her face are kind of like the typical woman's mind at any given point. We have jumbled thoughts and ideas going in every different direction at once. (Or at least I do!) 

I'm happy with Vanessa and how she's helped display my headbands and clips, so I'm sure you will see her around from time to time. I'm actually kind of jealous of her wavy hair. My hair is always so straight and even the beauticians have give up on trying to get it to curl.

All of the hair pieces are currently available in my shop and don't forget about the Summer Sale happening now on select ready to ship inventory. 

 Y'all please share some love with Vanessa and tell her you don't think she's scary and let her know if you think she's just fine without big eyes and lips!

  1. I love her! She's perfect the way she is because, yes, we women have jumbled thoughts, or at least you and I do. I am SO proud of you, Janice. Your imagination and creativity so extraordinary! Bless you, and your business. :)
