I’m sick this week, so it’s the perfect opportunity for me to talk about my blah hair. I have boring Asian hair. Every few years I might change it up for a short while, but then I always slip back into my default style: mid-length, straight, and parted slightly to one side. If your hair looks nice, you don’t even need to wear makeup, and yet you can still look pretty fabulous. A nice cut can also take an outfit from good to great, pulling your overall look together.
The problem is, I’m lazy and, let’s face it, pretty clueless. I allow my hair to air dry at night, and I don’t even brush my hair in the morning before I walk out the door. When my hair looks even messier than usual, I usually tie it back into a ponytail, only to take it out again because I feel self conscious without any strands framing my rather round face.
My guy prefers my hair long (how original – what guy doesn’t?), and though I loved my chin-length bob from years ago, I realize I’ve got my entire life to wear my hair short. Long gray/white hair just looks weird. Before I leave for my three week vacation to Hawaii in July, I need a haircut, and I’m thinking I should get bangs. I want to keep it the same length, but I need some style, and it has to be low maintenance. I also have a pretty decent selection of hair accessories, but I don’t really know how to use them to boost my look. Any suggestions?
