blooper video

Did you know I refuse to watch the first 10-20 videos that are published on the blog? It’s literally painful to see how uncomfortable I am in front of the camera.

I never inteneded on being the girl styling the hair. When the idea of hair tutorials came to me, I searched and searched on youtube so I wouldn’t have to make them myself.

I couldn’t find what I was looking for, so I filmed a few.

People kind of like them.

So I kept filming.

And here I am, a year and a half later, still filming.

but still needing a LOT of editing. . .

this video features many blank stares, a Grits cameo, and the voice of my sister. And lots of awkwardness.

  8. Posted December 18, 2012

    Thanks for sharing this! I loved it and it shows the “realness” of putting yourself out there. I have been putting off vlogging for a long time. I just can’t get up enough courage to put myself out there. πŸ˜‰

      you do know it’s Tuesday, right? πŸ™‚

  23. Posted December 18, 2012

  24. Amber says
    Posted December 18, 2012

    My favorite was “lay down boy. Come on. It’s a safe place!” Lol! Hilarious!

  25. Miranda says
    Posted December 18, 2012

    I cracked up when you tried to push your cat’s back to get him to lay down. I do this to my little dogs ALL the time and they never cooperate…

    Oh my gosh, I watched the Grits part at least 5 times just now! And I love how he randomly flicks his tail up to hit you in the face one last time! I almost died at the end at the pasty comment! Please post these more often!

    LOL!! Loved it! ;o)

  33. Posted December 18, 2012

    Super cute. I still can’t believe that it’s only been a year. I am thinking I must have discovered you when you were just a rookie. Ironic because I thought you had been vlogging for years! Keep posting! I love it. I just did the latest big hair (Reese) with head band and received literally 10 or more comments. I always reply with “Thanks, check out Kate @thesmallthingsblog and you can do it too” πŸ™‚
    Rock on!!

    My career has me behind the camera quite a bit – it’s not easy to get in front of it… Awkward or not, your videos have helped me style my hair, and for that I think you!

  78. Ren says
    Posted December 19, 2012

    You looked ridiculously pretty in the cat tail invasion section. And that clip was hilarious. You should include funny blooper intros in your videos. Always lots of fun. πŸ™‚

    I am at my desk at work with headphones in. It took everything I had not to audibly crack up. I was shaking because I was trying so hard not to laugh out loud. When Grits hit you in the face with his tail–oh, man. I need to get myself together here.

    I love, love, LOVE your videos! Thanks for being brave and showing the awesome blooper reel. I would love to have a “how to video yourself” tutorial, if you’re ever in the mood…I just started to try doing some videos, and I’m finding it so hard to get the lighting right. Yours are so nicely done. Thanks again.

    Can I simply just say what a relief to discover an individual who really understands what they’re talking about on the web. You actually understand how to bring an issue to light and make it important. A lot more people ought to look at this and understand this side of the story. I can’t believe you’re not more popular because you most certainly possess the gift.
