Why can't I have my own personal stylist?

Thursday, December 04, 2008
A parcel arrived for me today...my new do! Yessir, your captain's got herself some new hair. This time around its Revlon's Nirvana in Cherry Cola. I decided to stick with the same colour and just change the style. Unlike the bobbed cut which required no effort whatsoever that I'm currently sporting, the new hairdo requires a bit more time to be presentable. I'll need to get myself some new utensils. After spending a good hour brushing, backcoming, ruffling with my fingers, flipping and other techniques I don't know the technical term for, I finally settled on something that seems presentable. While I think it's quite nice and I'll be able to show myself in public (other than sport the fancy mullet it originally looked like!), it doesn't look as nice as the photo they use to sell it.



Granted, she's a model, thin, has gorgeous flawless skin, perfect lighting and a professional stylist waiting in the wings but still... Oh well, at least I managed to mimic her model pose pretty closely.

Hey, I think it looks great! Utensils are always fun! I just got myself a flat iron that I've used once...Maybe I should spend a bit of time practicing and posting the results. I'd also like to learn how to use my new liquid eyeliner effectively. Not sure I'd post results of that...

Your hair looks great. I prefer it over the stylized model version (and I'm not just saying that).

Oh, I like it! The color is actually prettier than the model's. I'm always in search of the perfect tools and products for hair! In fact, have been cruising the net looking for a new do - I would like to go longer, but don't know how I would look - think I'll go to the wig store and check out some styles and color.....try them on....but this looks really good on you - - - and in the pic, your skin looks great.

It looks very nice!
And what's the point of looking at those models...they are all airbrushed and photoshopped to death.
Utensils??? I use those in the kitchen... what do you mean? You mean something like a hair drier or rollers?

Thanks for the lovely comments. It's going to take some getting used to but I'm sure I'll love it in a few days.

Scout - I wear a wig. :)
