Kopeck employed the help of friend and roommate Mary Nolan, also a sophomore, to style her hair. Here, Kopeck explains to Nolan what she would like done to her hair: straight, but with a little more volume. The girls' makeshift 'salon' is the bathroom of their apartment, located on Lincoln Avenue.The sink in Kopeck's bathroom is littered with the supplies she and roommate Nolan are using to get her date-ready. Make-up, various brushes and Ben and Jerry's ice cream. Kopeck said the ice cream was essential to calming her nerves, the make-up and brushes only secondary.
Outfit chosen and hair styled, Kopeck adds a scarf from Anthropologie, her favorite place to shop, and leaves her apartment for her date Friday night. She was meeting her date at the AMC Theater on East Illinois Avenue downtown. The two saw "Grand Torino," Clint Eastwood's latest movie.
