Like every other woman alive, I have a wakeup routine that hasn’t changed for years. Silence my alarm. Put on my glasses. Refresh the “Mail” tab on my iPad. Slide slippers on my feet. Shuffle over to one of my dressers. Peer into my panty drawer. Toss aside the pink leopard print thong that screams “sexy” but rides uncomfortably up my butt. Ignore the too tight ruffly pink panties that squeeze me like a sausage. Hide the thick cotton, floral granny panties at the way bottom of the pile. Sigh audibly. Think to myself: “I need to buy more panties, again.” Keep reading »
It’s no secret that I’m not a fan of body hair. It’s also no secret that times are hard. So lately, I’ve been on quest to find a more affordable bikini waxer because it costs about $72 for a Brazilian wax and 20 percent tip at the spa I’ve been patronizing for the last three years. I considered going back to the Aveda Institute, the place where I had my first wax, but the students there don’t do Brazilians, and a well-groomed Afro down there doesn’t appeal to me. Then, LivingSocial had a $20-Brazilian wax deal and I was delighted to purchase it. Too bad it didn’t occur to me that Brazilians are best performed at establishments, by whom you know because the waxer was a double-dipper!
If you’re a fan of “Tabatha’s Salon Takeover,” a fan of waxing, or have basic logic in regards to hygiene, then you know that waxers should use a new wooden tong each time they scoop out hot wax. The waxer I went to on Tuesday did not. Keep reading »
Dear Kate Middleton’s Hair,
I know it’s kind of awkward to write you a letter, because, well, you’re hair and I’m not even sure that you know how to read, but I really need to talk to you. I would have called, but I don’t know the number for your direct line.
Every time I see you, KMH, you look good. Not just good, but breathtakingly good. You are thick and lustrous and shiny and styled into artfully cascading curls. If there was a contest for Best Hair In The World, you would win it every day. Maybe the hair of Blake Lively or Beyonce or Zac Efron would challenge you every once in a while and the World Hair Judges would pretend to deliberate. But ultimately every other head of hair in the world is the Justin Guarini to your Kelly Clarkson–there’s just no contest. So here’s my question: how do you look that good all of the time?

Way back in January, Julie wrote about the awesomeness of feather hair extensions. I’ve always thought they were cute, but wasn’t totally sold on them until I saw them in action at my friend Becca’s wedding. Becca’s sister was wearing a simple black bridesmaid’s dress and a few strands of striped feathers in her blond hair. The feathers added such a cool bohemian vibe to her outfit, and I’ve been scouring Etsy shops for a similar look ever since. So I was wondering: how do you guys feel about this trend? Would you wear feather extensions? [$22, Etsy] Keep reading »
