So, I've pretty much always pretended that I had straight or straightish hair. This involves a lot of electrical appliances, let me tell ya.
A couple of years ago, my hair Wizard, Kami talked me into a curly hair thing. She did it by pulling out this fabulous photo of local sportscaster Susie Wargin and her perfect, curly hair, and telling me that my hair would definitely, absolutely do this:
And when Kami cuts and styles it, IT DOES THAT!!
But for some reason, I can NOT make it happen that way. It ends up looking frizzy and just wavy, instead of hanging in those darling not-frizzy ringlets.
So I have been straightening it again. With a straightening iron this time. You know, just to get even on that darn hair.
This morning, I saw Susie on TV and while I was lamenting her perfect curls, The Brain said,
"You know, I LOVE it when you let your hair go curly."And there it was... the compliment Trifecta.
"really?" I asked. " I don't know - - It just seems frizzy and fat."
"Nope." he said. "It makes you look really young.
and sexy. ..
Guess how I'm wearing my hair today?
