I spent more than 30 minutes working on my hair today. It looks amazing...it looks stunning. I wish you could all be here to see it. My creativity is astounding!!! What did I do? I'd be happy to explain with the step-by-step process so that you can replicate this fabulous do yourselves.
Step 1: Pull hair through your hands several times. If you have a little product use it to tame those nasty fly-away frizzies.
Step 2: Carefully brush (or comb) your hair to get it as smooth as possible. If your hair tends to friz...just keep using your hands...combs and brushes will only aggravate your hair.
Repeat steps 1 & 2 for about 15 minutes
Step 3: Retrieve a hair elastic and grasp it firmly.
Step 4: Spend the next 10 minutes trying to figure out a beautiful way to use said elastic to pull your hair away from your face and look pretty too. Try a reverse knot, try a half bun thingy with your hair sticking up in the back, try everything you can think of (and if you are me...that is about three things). You can also try using clippies, barettes, and the giant claw of death to achieve the right look. After all attempts at this fail to make your hair look acceptable move on to step 5.
Step 5: Fish your favorite baseball cap out of the bin (or other resting place in your house).
Step 6: Pull your hair into a pony tail. Put the pony tail on top of your head.
Step 7: Put hat on your head. Allow the pony tail to loosely peek out through the space in the back.
Step 8: Stand back and say..."You look mah-velous Dah-ling. Simply Mah-velous!" (If you know where this line comes from...you will win 1,000,000 brownie points)
If you don't have to go anywhere...don't worry about doing this, it's just too time consuming and overwhelming to attempt on most days.
But when you have somewhere important to go...like the post office where you will be seeing important people like the senior citizens who don't trust dropping their letters in a box on the street. I'm sure you will feel very rewarded for all the effort you put in to getting your hair to look so amazing!
And may I just say...if you are the first woman who was ever brave enough to wear a baseball cap out in public...bless you.
