Flashback Friday: Every Woman's Worst Nightmare
I've been participating in Flashback Friday for a few weeks now, and I had something different planned for today, but since Pasha made a fool out of me yesterday...I am bringing back her most embarrassing moment. Bwahahhaha!
Every Woman's Worst Nightmare Originally published on January 13, 2009
I'm sure we've all been there:
You've had the same hairstyle for a while (let's be real, you've had the same hairstyle for years) and you're thinking, "You know, I could go for a change. I should do something new, something sassy, something unexpected with my hair." Maybe it's the change of seasons. Maybe it's the end of a relationship. Maybe you're just sick of your ponytail. Whatever.
And so you scour magazines looking for photos of women with the hair you want. In an effort to remain practical you actually look for women with the same type of hair that you have. For example, with my natural waves, I'm never gonna have Keri Russell's adorable curls or Lucy Lawless's positively reflective straight hair. So I realize that I've gotta work with what I've got. You take these photos to your stylist brimming with hope and exuberance.
But what if you haven't been taking care of your hair? What if you've gone the route of "less is more" when it comes to your personal grooming?
What if your stylist says to you, "Face the facts, girl. It's all gotta come off!"
Well, then you might look my cat, Pasha. And then you might just be a teensy, weensy bit sorry that you refused to have your hair brushed.
