Let's start with the hairdo which is pulled back into a single braid that sits at the top of the crown. It sits high on the head and dangles down the back like a ponytail. All strands are pulled straight back for a slicked back appearance. The braid itself is narrow rather than bushy. You can tell this model has relatively fine hair and the end of the braid is quite thin.

Back in the day it was cool to have a side part and pigtails just made it that much better. This model is wearing thick black framed glasses that give her the studious nerd persona. She does not have a ton of hair so this is just right for those with fine locks. The top portion is smooth and straight and the ponies are loosely curled. The phone is chartreuse and has the dial that gave the fingers a good workout.

This hair piece is poodle-like with tiny ringlet curls which reminds us of the 80's when spiral perms were all the rage. Back then women flocked to the salon to have perm rods placed and then a smelly solution was added and sat on the hair for a period of time. This was a necessary evil to achieve the trendy look that many long haired women sought back in the day. Big and bold was considered beautiful and fun and trendy. In keeping with the look from that decade Jillisa is wearing blue eye shadow along with dark liner and lashes. Her eyebrows look painted on and are distinct. Her lipstick is pale pink. She is wearing a fluffy fur coat in animal print.
