In preparation for our trip to Paris, I thought I'd better pay more attention to my appearance - my last haircut was in March, and I'd let too much time pass. So yesterday I went to Julianna and got a cut and highlights.
What do you think?
I like a hairstyle that's easy to take care of, because I'm no good at styling my own hair. Or anyone's hair, probably - not having any girl-children means I never had the opportunity to try.
Julianna's a good stylist, and she tries to teach me basic techniques so I can blowdry my hair at home. So I watch, carefully, as she twirls the round brush under the blast of the hot dryer, shaping the smoothly turned-under sides and lifting volume at the crown.
I always ask what product she uses, and sometimes even buy it from her, though I never actually use it.
And the blow-dry lessons? Well this morning I gave it a try.
My hair is less than two inches long. How can it be possible to tangle the round brush so badly I can't get it out?
