Girl Talk: The Transition From Hairstylist To Friend

Girl Talk: The Transition From Hairstylist To Friend

One of the things I lost when I stopped shampooing and cutting my hair was regular hangouts with my former hairstylist/now friend, Maggie. I met her after several bad experiences at Hair Cuttery and Great Clips, where I’d go for a $20 hair cut, say, “Fuck my hair up!” and the stylist would interpret that as “You want a layered bob.” I did not want a layered bob. I wanted fucked-up hair.

I think I was 22 when I started seeing Maggie on the reg. I decided I’d splurge on a $35 haircut at Regis, one of those slightly-more-upscale mall hair salons where you learn that paying $15 more for your haircut really goes a long way. It was a lot for me at the time when you counted the tip, too, but Maggie made it worth it. I said, “Fuck up my hair!” and she looked at my hair for a minute or so, decided how to artfully fuck it up, and proceeded to do so. Keep reading »

Beauty Test Drive: Sexy Hair’s Caring Is Sexy Powder Play

Beauty Test Drive: Sexy Hair's Caring Is Sexy Powder Play

STOP WHAT YOU’RE DOING. I’ve found the best hair product of the year for ladies with limp locks, like myself. I’ve always had pin straight, heavy hair, which means it goes flat within 30 minutes after a blow dry. Not anymore. Before I went out this weekend, a friend of mine told me I needed some “oomph” in my hair, before whipping out a canister of this texturizing & volumizing powder. Let me tell you, it is life changing, my friends. Oh, and the best part is that a portion of the proceeds will go to Look Good Feel Better, a nonprofit dedicated to improving the self-esteem of those undergoing cancer treatment. It’s a win-win.

Hair Dos: 10 Styles To Save Any Bad Hair Day

Fun fact about me: I find showering really tedious, boring and annoying. Some days I wake up and I just can’t. That 10 minutes standing in the tub could be spent getting a little extra sleep, or reading Twitter while I drink my coffee, or having a really quick morning masturbation session (truthfully, I’m a before bed masturbator, but you get the point). The only real problem with skipping a shower in the morning is that my hair often looks like a hot mess when I wake up. The roots are greasy, my bangs have a mind of their own and I always have this crazy cowlick/hair bump situation on the left side of my crown. On days like this, I usually pull it back into a haphazard bun, but even that is hit or miss — plus, I’m sick of having the same go-to bad hair day style. With that in mind, I considered the variety of bad hair day problems and found 10 hairstyles to try the next time greasy roots, pesky cowlicks or limp strands threaten to ruin your day.
