One of the things I'm really determined to learn this year is to be more "girly."
Now, obviously I'm a big lover of dresses and skirts and don't shy away from that side of the girly atmosphere, but I've always felt like a big dumbo when it come to hair and make-up. I know nothing.
This past fall I did get brave and cut it shorter than I ever have (yes, shoulder length is the shortest it's ever been - I've had mega-long hair 80% of my life). I'm really happy with the length that it is now, but it's still a fairly big sorce of frustration for me every morning. It's baby-soft and super fine. Now, you wonder, who complains about having soft hair? Well, when it's so soft and fine that it's nearly impossible to get to stay with bobby pins, and teasing of any kind is absolutely worthless, things can get hairy - hardeeharhar! (that's my old man laugh, in case you were wondering).
So I'm reaching out to all you other girlies who have or have had what is essetially long baby hair (kind of creepy image there, sorry). How do you deal with it and get it to do, well, anything? I've never dyed my hair and part of me wonders that if "damaging" it a little by dying would help at all - but like I said, I know nothing so this is most likely a crazy girl's idea.
Any other "late bloomers" out there who didn't get the girly make-up and hair gene?
