    Default Burlesque party tomorrow, how should I wear my hair?

    I'm going to party tomorrow night, it's a burlesque party and I'm going to wear a black cocktail dress, fishnet leggings and wear bright red lipstick and have smooky eyes. But, I don't have time to wash my hair and have it dry so I need to put it up, but how? I'm working tomorrow so the style has to be quite easy and not too time consuming as I have to eat, do my makeup and put on my clothes and hopefully be in time to meet up with the other gals. Ideas?

    I would try googling hairstyles that Dita Von Teese has worn- she's the Queen of Burlesque! She does a lot of cool 1940's looks- victory rolls, etc. She wears her hair down a lot, but there are some wild updos- like this one:

    or maybe something like this?: http://celebrityfashion.yuddy.com/wp..._von_teese.jpg

    Sounds like a fun party!!!

    Here's one--you could do the front section as shown, and put the back in a low bun with a big flower. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UdKxk...eature=related

    Could always pony the back, or bun it or something.

    Though she kind of irritates me...and amuses me at the same time. @_@ I have no use for this video, yet I watched it anyway.

    How about 2 buns on the top of your head, giving you a cute Minnie Mouse burlesque look? Just do a central parting and make a bee butt bun on each side, right on the top of the head. It's burlesque, but still modern and young-looking.

    I think this looks best with a blunt fringe/bangs, but I wore it successfully for a party although I'm fringeless!

    That one looks like it could be imitated by doing the "giant variation sockbun" on the top and front of the head. I'd give that a shot as a test-run, and if it works, that would be a great quick one to do!

    I'm more interested in the "burlesque party!"

    How does one host or get invited to one? Egads, I must be out of the burlesque loop. And I've never set my hair on fire.

    Well, my boring life ends this instant!
