Gustav Klimt's portrait of Helen Klimt
I know the creativity has been a bit lacking but we're having a super busy weekend!! Lots of fun, lots of birthdays... you'll hear more about it tomorrow as we're leaving in an hour to see a great show in Hershey!
Let's talk briefly about hair! I just got my hair cut on Tuesday and I was thinking about something an old boyfriend's sister once said, "You should spend more money on a good haircut than a dress because you wear your hair every day!". It is true that a good hair day always feels better and to not have to worry about bad hair is great. Finding someone to cut/style your hair the right way is something else though! It took me several years of living where we do now to find someone I really like. I also read somewhere that if a hairstylist says your hair is the problem, change stylists because they should be able to cut your hair to suit it's texture and thickness so it will look good. I've had my hair done by cheap places all the way up to a very well known stylist in NYC who does hair for tv personalities there. And basically my favorite style that they all seem to do is a bob because my hair is straight and heavy.
I grew up with two blonde sisters and we all have different textured hair. Whenever I see three little blonde sisters, it reminds me of all of us. The numerous different styles we tried (let's just forget the perms girls... I looked horrible!) are unfortunately forever captured in old photos and yearbooks! I would braid the other two's hair if they asked. Anne says my hair isn't "big enough" and they are both more glamourous than I am. But to this day, we tend to resemble our younger selves: me in the bob, Jane with long hair and Anne with curls pulled up very pretty! The funny thing is that I've always loved brunette hair! My mom is a brunette... Dad is the blonde. Mom always seemed more sophisticated with her dark hair and dramatic. Now my own daughter is a brunette with big brown eyes!
So, do you love your own hair and what is your favorite color?
