I straighten my hair everyday for work.
It's the quickest way to look like I didnt just slide out of bed, which I probably did.
This weekend my straightener broke. I mean, it REALLY broke. We are talking a complete forfeit from my trusty ole friend in this long battle against my mane. So anyways, I am not quite sure yet if I want to invest in a new nice one that maybe has more than one trick up its sleeve, or if I want to just go grab a cheapy to hold me over for a little while.
So in this time of limbo, here I am, in the work week. Yesterday was Monday. Now, I usually shower the night before (reason 1 being...I just spent a day in a hospital and don't like the thought of what I may have all over me, and reason 2...I have a hard time getting out of bed early enough in the morning to get a shower in).
After my shower, my hair gets tied up on the top of my head in any sort of a tangled mess to keep the wetness out of my face and off my neck. Then, when I go to sleep, I let my bumped/crimped/mess down for me to sleep on and create even more of a disaster. The next morning, I straighten...but wait, that's right, it broke.
So like I was saying, yesterday was Monday. Day 1 Without Straightener. I put my hair up in a pony tail. I've only done this for work about 2 other times in the 2 years I've worked here. And so I showed off a flat yet poofed and awkwardly crinkled ponytail. And what do you know, I got several, not just one or two, SEVERAL compliments on my hair. What?! These included "I like your hair like that!" and "You are just glowing today! I think its the ponytail" and many more. So today, not feeling like I can go two days in a row with the pony tail business, despite the apparent obsession. Well, today I decide to CURL my hair! Something I have never done for work. It's a little more time consuming, but I'll survive. And the feedback?
Not a single word.
So my life lesson this week...I guess I'll just have to wear my hair in a ponytail for my wedding, it seems to be the biggest hit?
