Where is a good place to get my hair done for the ball? The lady I went to when we were here 3 years ago isn't here anymore

X 100! 

Mrs Zim --- 5 years ago -

Cool. Maybe I'll try them too 

Champ --- 5 years ago -

i need to learn to do my hair/make-up myself. :( I'll be paying more for those items than a dress. 

Dontchawish --- 5 years ago -

I spend tons of time doing my makeup! Its fun and it makes me feel good. Hair not so much. I suck at hair. There are some excellent instructional videos on youtube for makeup application. Pinterest also has a plethora of makeup help. 

Champ --- 5 years ago -

i'm paying for my make up to be airbrushed on this year.I'm genuinely interested to see the outcome/ how it holds up. 

Dontchawish --- 5 years ago -

I've never done airbrushed makeup before. I can usually get my makeup to hold up through a work out! But, I probably wear more makeup than the average lady.

Me too! 

Champ --- 5 years ago -

my biggest issue is eyeliners, they melt off of me. so, I'm hoping for a magical outcome hah 

Dontchawish --- 5 years ago -

I don't really do eyeliner very often. I always seem to get it in my eye. 

WooTang (Mod) --- 5 years ago -

Champ when is your ball? I'm trying to find someone around here to airbrush for the ball this year and would love to hear how yours turns out if it's before mine. I have always done my own hair and for the balls. I'm doing hair but not makeup. My skin has completely changed the past few months and need to hit sephora up for an evaluation and get new stuff. 

WooTang (Mod) --- 5 years ago -

Champ have you tried an eye primer before putting liner on? Waterproof liner might stay better as well 

Champ --- 5 years ago -

my ball is Nov 10th :)

and yes, I tried primer it didn't seem to affect it much. I'm going to try a cake liner (never used before) and see how that works. I have oily-ish skin, and my eyes always water, so I'm sure that has something to do with it. I don't line my lower eyelids because it's so bad, but lining my tops, I still get it underneath drives me absolutely crazy.

Don't you guys get bored going to the Balls? 

Champ --- 5 years ago -

Don't you guys get bored going to the Balls?

No, it's only once a year if that with deployments etc (stating the obvious), better than most weddings. Though if we didn't go, the evening would be perhaps even better since it's our anniversary. 

Dontchawish --- 5 years ago -

Don't you guys get bored going to the Balls?
No way!! When I was on active duty it was a great excuse to get my party on and look great in my uniform. And of course celebrate the Marine Corps!! Now as "just a wife" it's a great reason to get my party on and look great doing it!! And celebrate the Marine Corps. I never actually got to watch a ceremony until I got out of the Corps. I was color guard from the time I checked in until I got out. It's pretty awesome stuff! 

WooTang (Mod) --- 5 years ago -

my ball is Nov 10th :)

Oh boo. Mine is the 2nd. Hopefully I can find someone soon and do a test run.

Don't you guys get bored going to the Balls? 

Not at all. Being that I havent been to one in 3 years due to 2 deployments and a pregnancy, I am quite excited. Its nice to get dressed up and have a night out. 

BOOM BOOM BOOM --- 5 years ago -

I do. Depending on how looooooong and booooring the speaches go. I've only experienced one great guest speaker. He was awesome! I'm still waiting on a female guest speaker. Sometimes they drag it out too long. Or witnessed two color guards pass out. One knocked his front tooth out! Lol. We messed with him every year about it.

Also depends on who you sit next to. Knowing the coordinator helps especially when they assign seating.

My daughter went with the hubbs when she was 8. I had to be somewhere else. She hated looking at the cake for over an hour before being able to consume it! Lol

Sometimes it's all in how you make it. Most people bolt to after parties or hotels right after dinner is over. 

Fiction --- 5 years ago -

Been to over 13 balls, and don't get me wrong I love the tradition and whatnot of the USMC, but if you've been to one you've been to them all.

I'm at the point now where it's like meh, not really feeling it. I'll celebrate the birthday with my buddies without the formalities....
