I’m sure I’ve mentioned how terrible I am at being a girl, but let me refresh your memory: it was only – oh, four years ago? – that I learned how to actually put on blush like a real adult. And when asked “What kind of brush do you use?” my usual answer is a dumbfounded expression that reads: “There’s more than one kind?”. As much as I like looking nice and getting dolled up, I’m terrible at actually doing it myself. So I jumped on Alex’s invitation to get a professional blowout at Swank Hair Studio in Lawrenceville.
(Also, sidenote: when I was a girl, for whatever inexplicable reason thought that I could “curl” my hair with what I today found out is called a round brush. 7 year-old me wasn’t nearly as skilled as Sam, my stylist, is, so I ended up with a hairbrush tangled in my hair and sticking out the side. This might be one reason why I don’t really mess with my hair…)
Same got to blow drying, brushing, rolling, and spritzing and in no time, my hair had transformed!
I couldn’t be happier with how my hair turned out! Who knew that just a good shampoo and a blow dry (with a round brush that Sam did not get stuck in my hair) could turn my stick-straight locks into a flippy, volume-filled mythical being. I felt like a jazzed up version of me, but still me – which is important!
And then I ate a glittery cake pop to celebrate my new ‘do.
