Our Great Gatsby Party

My cousin had a Great Gatsby dress up party for her 26th Birthday at The Soda Factory. It was a great night. I put some extensions in my hair and then rolled it up to create a bob. It actually suited me short. I did my makeup differently as well. I went for a softer, prettier look and only applied eyeliner to the tops of my eyes and flicked the corners of my eyes with the eyeliner. I also went for a soft pink for lips and cheeks.

I did my hair like Daisy from The Great Gatsby and I tried to wear similar jewellery. I am wearing my great aunt’s chocker from the same era.

Daisy Great Gatsby HairI borrowed my cousins black flapper dress and I wore my pale green rose shaped earrings to soften the look.

Daisy Great Gatsby HairTo get my hair like this I added 2 long hair extensions to my hair (the one’s that you clip in). Then I rolled the hair under until it created a bob and I just pinned it up. My mum taught me this trick. She use to have long hair and would wear it like this a lot.
