Other than getting spray tanned, my biggest expense every Mardi Gras season is HAIR! Somehow, my normal everyday style isn't enough in a formal gown and I feel the need to go the extra mile to get all glamed up! Then, I got the bright idea to search for some easy DIY styles on YouTube and I struck pay dirt!

Okay, I know this first girl is a teen and it's for NYE, but she does a great job with hair and makeup!

I love this style!

I never would have thought about painting my bobby pins!

The hair bow reminds me of that chick on The Voice!

I've never been able to master this! Maybe I'll be able to rock it now!

Here eye make up is pretty sweet!
