Thrilled

You see, I've had the same hairstyle since Junior High. That was 1982. Well, to be precise I've had the same three hair-do's since Junior High. Either it's shoulder length or longer with some layers (also known as growing out a short haircut) or it's a bob of some form...or something in between. The only variation has been length. I never had the "Rachel" or that cute flippy hair cut that is so "thirtysomethingmomish". No variety, no updates...nothing to be done.



Until now. I always despaired that my hair (which is not the MOST curly hair in the world, but is very very stubborn in its own right) was the sort of hair that I would style and then as soon as I go out into humidity or weather it reverts to it's evil curly incarnation. Until now.

Enter, the ceramic plated wonder by Revlon that has become my new best friend!

Before (which of course has to be taken with NO MAKEUP and a fairly ugly shirt:




And After. This literally took me only about five minutes to do! Well, and maybe another two or three for "mom makeup".


And me being a bit silly with the whole "pouty mouth" thing...


I just can't say enough how thrilled I am. And my hair stays like this all day. It is soft, no hair spray required. I'm probably the LAST woman in America to discover the brilliant wonder and manifestation of healed communion between God, humans and nature that is a ceramic hair straightener. Well, there you have it, folks.

That is awesome, Alana! You look great! I admit a tinge of jealousy at curly haired gals, because it's much harder to get temporary curls in my stick-straight hair than it is to get curly hair straight. But I've mostly come to terms with it, after 35 years.

GLAMOROUS!

I agree with Amy on *all* counts, straight-haired girls, they all want curls!

Laura said...

Very cute!

I've had the same hairstyle for ages also...but I'm not brave enough to cut it short. Especially since lately I cut it myself!!!

Ruth said...

Hurray! I LOVE hair straightening irons! I have curly hair too (although it's getting less and less curly w/ age...but it definitely still has a mind of its own), and I straighten most of the time. Well, maybe half the time lately. I love that I can do different stuff with my hair. Glad you found one - have fun!

before i was so rudely interrupted said...
