I don’t have anything special going on today. I’ll work in my office and probably have relatively little human interaction. Nonetheless, I can’t bring myself to leave the house with STUPID hair.
Consequently, I just spent 40 minutes trying to do something with my unruly locks that wouldn’t make me want to wear a bag over my head. Normally a messy bun is a good option on the day after a hair wash. No dice today. Every attempt left me looking like a pin head from the front and as if there were some kind of animal nest on the back – animals included.
How about wearing it down today? I had some nice waves going. Yeah, that was okay from the front. The back view resembled a scary old witch living in a shack in the woods.
After a good 20 attempts and a LOT of hair ripped out with the hair elastics (my apologies to the next person who has to clean the bathroom), a break was required, before I ruined my makeup with tears of frustration. I sat down at the laptop for a bit to check in with Facebook and WordPress. Forced myself to breathe normally. And then it was once more into the breach.
Bandanna headband to the rescue! Finally I had something that would allow me to leave the house without shame. I mean, I may be getting on into middle age, and I may be just an everyday working mom, but I do still have standards!
Please, please, please…tell me I’m not the only one who’s been nearly defeated by HAIR?!?
