Bad Hair Day

Anyone who knows me, knows that I am pretty low maintenance. Slap on a little foundation and concealer. Maybe some powder. Since I always look like I slept in my clothes, I don't try to iron them anymore. And my fine, straight hair. Usually worn in an easy bob.

Today was not such a good day. First, I don't go in to work until late so my timing is off. I've been distracted. I got dress out of the shower wearing jeans and an embroidered white knit sweater. The first problem, then, was keeping Prissy away so that the white sweater remained white.

Then, there was the hair. I spent 45 minutes trying to do something with it this morning. I blew it dry with the round brush but it was crazy, fly-away and would not curl properly. So I pulled out the curling iron. Nope. And it kept tickling my face. So I pulled out old reliable, a butterfly clip. Nope. I had a rooster comb thing working on top and the sides were so tight my eyes looked like I had a bad face lift. I tried again. And again. And again.

So I wound up with a pony tail. (After having thrown brush,comb, and butterfly clip across the room.) A too tight, uneven, crooked pony tail sprayed into submission with extra hold hair spray. My head hurts. My shoulder hurts. I can't remember brushing my teeth. If I didn't wear a headset at work, I might have opted for a headband, but the point is moot. If I didn't have to go to work today, I would have just planned on staying indoors.

What do you do on a bad hair day?

Haha. I used a round brush for the first time today! It worked out great!
Given the amounts of attempts you'd given your hair to submit... I would have gotten back in the shower by then and "rebooted" my day. I couldn't deal.
Grab a scarf when you get home and do the Audrey Hepburn. It'll be fabulous!

I have VERY curly hair and the summer is the worst time for curly hair. I feel your pain. I wear a lot of hats when I'm not working!
