Little Known Facts About Shelly Continued AND A Cry for Help
Little Known Facts About Shelly:
Shelly has WAVY hair.
Having wavy hair is kind of annoying because it's not curly and it's not straight--it's straighter than curly but curlier than straight--see what a predicament that places one in? What type of hair products can you buy? Everything is either for STRAIGHT or CURLY hair. Usually I bypass the whole debate by blowing my hair out straight--it makes life much less complicated and I can go on to contemplate the truly meaningful things like why do hot dogs come in packs of 6 while hot dog buns come in packs of 8? Etc.
However, when A's hair started to grow out I started getting a lot of questions about why her hair was curly. I remember one discussion in particular when an older woman asked me, "Where did those curls come from?" I answered that it couldn't be my husband--straightest hair ever! but was probably from me because my hair is wavy. She looked at me. Laughed and said, "Your hair is not curly. It is not wavy. It is straight--haven't you looked in a mirror?" Now, obviously this lady knows nothing about flat irons or blow dryers but it really flipped my switch that she figured I was lying about having "almost curly" hair. So that's why I feel it's important that you all know the truth about me and my straighter that curly and curlier than straight hair.
Oh, and on another note, I'm in a wedding soon! (Yippee!) and need *Updo* ideas. Any updo that doesn't look remotely like my normal updo (see pic on the right) would be a vast improvement! I am searching for a COOL updo and am having the HARDEST time. So, if you have any ideas--online or otherwise give a girl some help and point me in the right direction. I'm contemplating all sorts of crazy thing like hair pieces and hot rollers--I need help and I need it fast! Oh, and I don't mean google updos and give me the first 2 sites that pop up--I'm asking only for pictures or really good hair sites (few and far between b/c I've been looking and looking and looking for a longgggggggg time!). Thanks in advance =)
