Teen Mom chelsea houskaChelsea Houska debuted a new look on Instagram recently, and let me tell you: If you think Chels likes her eye makeup and big hair on a regular day, wait 'til you get a load of Ms. Houska before a wedding. Definitely not a look for every day, but for a special occasion, it's actually kind of bad ass.

It looks like Chelsea took her signature full-bodied red locks and added more volume and tighter curls*. Also, seems like she added more height to one side, giving sort of a cool girl shaved half-head look -- without shaving half her head. Crafty. As for her makeup, it's hard to see, but looks like she went with her typical smoky look for her eyes, but did more of a pinky-pale lip. Gorgeous. And let's not even talk about this dress. I love the juxtaposition of her edgy hair and makeup with her soft and feminine dress. Not an easy look to pull off.

Obviously, this look is a bit much for everyday life. Running out for a coffee with sky-high hair and the smokiest of smoky eyes is kind of crazy. And jarring. But for a wedding, it's rad. It's good to go out of our comfort zones and do a little something extra on special occasions. Why not, right? Variety is the spice of life.
