Vain AND Lazy
It's a bad combination. I am so vain it's ridiculous - I might have thought vanity would have peaked in my teens but, frankly, I'm probably more vain now - I mean, there's so much more to be vain about:
effects of gravity;
adult acne (totally unfair);
skin which appears to be thinning;
reduction in hair volume;
...you get the picture
And despite the photos you find in this blog - I love a high maintenance look. I absolutely adore the whole nine yards: Makeup, nails, high heels, and most of all I love high maintenance hair. I just adore it when a women in l'age has beautifully coloured hair - lots of colour and/or lots of highlights - love it. Plus I love lots of styling, spray, mousse, whatever, the more the better.
So why is my hair such a savage mess? Cause I am so lazy. Root maintenance alone drives me crazy. My hair grows fast (that's my excuse) so I'm constantly using that root touch up stuff. As for styling, can't even be bothered to blow it dry. Generally, I wash it at night and sleep on it.
Now, I have tried. If you scroll back far enough you'll see my "Decisive Move" post. That was my Daphne Guinness phase. I have since come to my senses. Daphne is nothing if not a worshipper at the shrine of the high maintenance goddess, and I in turn, worship at her feet. Unfortunately, my own dance with a big bold blond streak was a result of a breakdown in communication between stylist and client.
Bear with me while I tell the tale of how it all went awry. Friday.
