A daily dose of creative suspense.

Marlyn getting her blonde hair on

Things are getting hairy for Marlyn Monroe!



Marlyn Monroe Getting her blonde on! I found this Tibetan mohair fiber at a famers market in Tibet of course! Just kidding. It was in Lewes Delaware but it was a Tibetan Monk who sold it to me. OK,ok it was just a guy. Just a plain ole guy. A guy who went to Tibet and bought it from a monk.

Here how I did it: (sorry I didn’t take pictures, it was hard enough just doing it.)
“Goop” glue
tooth picks
a strip of Tibetan Mohair

Step #1:
I cut a little bit of hair about 1/2 inch wide. Spread it out flat on the foil where I had dapped some glue. Using the tooth pick I spread glue on both sides of the hair clump.

Step #2:
Starting at the bottom of her head I pressed it onto her head, using the round tooth pick I kind of rolled it onto her head.
I just kept doing this in rows all the way up her head layering one row over the other.

Step #3:
I had made grooves for her part on the top of her head and a hole for the crown swirl and one more in the front because she flips her bangs back and over. When I reached the top I put glue in these grooves and pushed the hair ends down in the grooves and then made a tiny ponytail to push into the crown hole.

Step #4:
Now I am letting all the glue dry 24 hours before I style and cut it.

  1. I love it. It’s twisted and provocative. Definitely gets your attention. Fun and awesome work.
