I've had it with my hair. My experiment with letting it get as long as I can stand is officially over. Instead of being long and pretty, my hair is now looking long and messy. And brassy. It's so not good. I have my hair appointment scheduled for Thursday and if the weather allows (and it better), I'm going for the works: a new color and a new cut. And let me say, it's about time.
So, what do you do when you want to make a hair change? Where do you look for inspiration? I was standing in my local Barnes and Noble checking out the magazines, and there are a lot of very scary looking hairstyle magazines out there. Have you ever seen these? They're usually imported from Europe and the styles featured inside look either dated or too crazy for real life. *Sigh*
So what's a girl to do?
I've checked online and have had very frustrating results. There are way too many ads, too many photos of celebrities (no, I do NOT want a Britney Spears haircut, thank you very much!), and not enough good sites devoted to finding a decent, every day hairstyle. That's where iVillage comes in. The Virtual Hairstylist and other hair related articles on their site are a god-send. Yes, you have to pay to get full access to the site (and I'm far too cheap to do this!) but even if you go for the freebies, you still get a lot of good information about changing your style.
We'll see what happens on Thursday. But in the meantime, if you have a great hairstyle resource, share it in the comments section.
