there is no dana, there is only zuul.
While the end results of doing your hair may wind up looking pretty darn cute, there are definitely parts of the styling process in which you can make yourself look questionable to say the least and totally absurd to say the most. Remember the Coolio/Bumble Ball stretching situation? Well yesterday when I put my hair in large, chunky twists to try to refresh my twist out, I looked in the mirror and two images came to mind:
That’s right. Those terrifying-and-impressive-at-the-time-but-now-look-as-real-as-gumby-compared-to-what-james-cameron-is-pulling-off-these-days dogs from Ghostbusters and the androgynous, flat-topped Gozer. Check it out:
Sure I’m lacking in those laser red eyes and low body clearance that these dogs had as they tore apart NYC looking for Sigourney Weaver = Zuul, but I think that this pre-style style is quite the homage to my favorite late 80’s flick.
In the end, the twist refresh didn’t work because I was impatient and did not let my hair fully dry in the twists so I did not get any twist-out definition. I did however, wind up with stretched curls and a larger-than-normal super soft fro.
But this whole Keymaster/Gatekeeper situation does have me wondering: how can I choose my next style that will make me resemble my actual favorite (and more cuddly) Ghostbuster character?
