May Update from Elizabeth

Happy May, Ladies!!!  (I know I’m a few days late, but better late than never, right? 🙂 )

I hope you all had a great Easter.  For those of you who haven’t seen it, you can read my thoughts from last year here.  This year, I spent some time just thinking about the fact that this was my God Who gave His life for me.  You can hear a great song about that idea here.

I’ve received quite a few comments and e-mails asking when there will be a new tutorial, what’s happened to me, etc.  Let me assure you: I’m not dead, just my computer is– or as my southern daddy would say “day-yed.”  🙂  The computer that I do all my pictures on has developed this nasty habit of randomly shutting down every so often.  The internet isn’t really functional, but we have the system on life support so that we can write papers for school.  If you have written me or asked a question, I’ll try to respond when I can.  It’s just that at this stage of my life right now, blogging isn’t my top priority.  Real life has thrown more at me in the last few months than you can imagine.  The rest of this month is going to be so busy, I probably won’t be able to post again for several weeks.  So what does that mean for Rapunzel’s Resource?

  1. I have about a half-dozen new tutorials I want to write this summer– specifically some new updos, rope braid ideas, and some stuff from the first two Narnia movies.  There are also some styles that I would like to do videos for, as well.
  2. Some of you have requested some styles and I haven’t approved your requests.  This is because I have decided not to do Sci-Fi styles on Rapunzel’s Resource.  The reason I developed this site was to provide creative styling techniques for long-haired ladies for both modern life and historical re-enactment events.  And Sci-Fi styles are usually impossible without fake hair anyway.
  3. For other movie style requests, I’m working on how to implement a discussion-based movie hair style section on WordPress.  I hope this will allow those who want to be able to work together to figure out how those looks can be replicated.

So after school ends, and graduation and wedding season is over, I hope to have some new things ready for ya’ll.  See you then!

P.S.  I finally saw “Tangled”!  If you’d like to post your thoughts on the movie as a long-haired gal, that would be great.  🙂

Salutations!  Welcome to Rapunzel’s Resource, my new hair tutorial blog.  I will be posting instructions for individual techniques as well as finished styles both modern and historical.  Another group of styles will be faux short ‘dos.  As a girl with long hair, I have found creative styling and fighting boredom to be a challenge.  Either I do the same styles over and over, or I get the urge to cut my hair.  Hopefully this blog will help others to experiment and find styles and techniques that work for them.
