Talking "Wacky Tacky Day" ... hairstyles?

Undoubltedly the best part of school spirit week is Wacky Tacky day. Last year I made myself a shirt (well... "reconstructed" an old t-shirt...) and brushed my hair

This year, I want to do something different. Brushed Katie-hair was a shock last year, but there's got to be sooo many different "wacky tacky" or maybe just "wacky" curly hair styles. the thing I liked about the brushed hair was that it felt "free" in that I really didn't have to care how my hair looked, because I knew it looked bad

...sooo any suggestions? I'm open to just about anything except dying/coloring my hair or straightening all of it.

Ha, ha, straightening your hair for Wacky Tacky Day would be totally funny but probably only to you (and us). You might piss off a whole bunch of straighties. Love the thought though!

Day 1: Cowash and condition with AO GPB, ACV Rinse,
Co-Kra gel (this stuff is fantastic)

Day 2: KCKT, KCCC, plop, KCCC, plop again, air dry
Day 3: Curly Kinks Satin Roots, Coil Jam
Day 4: IAGirl's PT, KBB DT, FSG

Co-Kra gel is my own concoction of okra boiled in coconut milk. It is a cross between FSG and KCCC and leaves my hair very soft and shiny

Someone with my sense of humor! I did that when I was in high school. I dressed up in a preppy outfit and straightened my hair. It was nice.

Hmmm...a beehive. Or you could use one of those banana clips to bring it all together in the middle, like a ponytail that runs the whole length of your head. Then tease and hairspray or gel the top to come forward.

Like this only better:

Or straighten one side of your hair, leaving the other totally curly like this:

OH! I LOVED doing that for high shcool!

What I did was get a wire clothes hanger. And bend it around my head. THen I braided my hair into the wire. This caused braids that stuck into the air.


I hope you understand what I'm talking about.

If you like the idea, I have pics somewhere...

EDIT:

This isn't me.. but here you go.

Braid your hair in pigtails. If you have long hair, even better, clip a wire clothes hanger and insert the wire through the center of the braid. Bend the wire to make your braids turn up. (Sort of like Pippy Longstocking, see the picture)

woah jlritchey, I LOVE the first link. I wonder how they did that....

thanks for the ideas... I like the preppy straight hair idea, but I go to private school with literally 7 people in my grade, so its not so mcuh "clique-y" enough for that.

Maybe put little ponytails all over your head (Scary Spice style but without the buns) and then brush out the ends of them so they get puffy?
