It's all done with mirrors & painted smiles
Happy birthday, Vidal Sasson. A man who’s passion for the craft was matched only by his talent. Thank you for changing our world & my life!
I am now officially a licensed cosmetologist in the state of Texas. Only took me 18 years, but what the hell! :-)
So, she sits here on my desk at work, because I really had nowhere else to put her. A bit out of place in my corporate office, but I suppose so are the photos of Vidal Sassoon & my Sassoon competition ”before & after”.
It’s officially official… I can now take credit cards.
Some days I’m just so indecisive.
Took my written state board exam about an hour ago. Completed the 110 question test in just under 30 minutes & scored 87%. Now, just a few more weeks & I’ll clock the last of my hours & be ready to take my practical. Anticipated graduation date is set for November 20th.
18 years in the making… hard to believe it’s really almost over.
Check out this blog from Birchbox.
So….. I just really don’t understand what the big deal is. Who says we have to lose all sense of style & “self” as we age?
I’m not quite 40 yet (38), but I can assure you that I have absolutely no intention of suddenly toning down my look once I hit some arbitrary magic number.
Think about who it is in their 40s, 50s & 60s right now. These women “grew up” in decades when punk & rock & roll were still edgy. I’m a mom, I have 2 teenage boys & I’m covered in tattoos, have my nose pierced, stretched ear lobes & like to keep my hair long with very drastic, edgy layers. Right now it’s black with platinum blonde balayage on the tips of my bangs. I also like it with blue bangs or blue ombre. If I ever did choose to cut it off, I’d probably opt for something asymmetrical & funky (like Miley Cyrus’ new cut - loving that!) & still play with the colours.
What do y’all think?

We’ve covered a number of crazy hairstyles on this blog, from Miley Cyrus’ asymmetrical platinum cut to Katy Perry’s orange locks on the cover of L’Officiel. But we definitely didn’t anticipate this new trend that’s hitting hair salons across the country. The New York Times is reporting that the bravest, edgiest hairstyles aren’t on the heads of teenagers and 20-somethings anymore—but women in their 40s, 50s, and 60s.
