LOOK MA, NO BLACK
















I finally got a haircut after almost four months. It's definitely the fastest way to feel like a brand new person. I highly recommend it after a fight, break up, or if you just want to feel fresh again.

Anyway, so something both unusual and remarkable happened today. The Creative Director of Vidal Sassoon asked if I wanted to be a hair model. I looked like a mess when he came up to me (strands of wet hair were shooting out from every direction), so I was like, seriously? The first thing he asked me was, "How tall are you?" so he must've been distracted by my hugeness. haha. Needless to say, I was completely floored and extremely flattered when I realized it wasn't a joke.

I have his card and am supposed to email him. My 9-5 would kill me if I walked in with shaved purple hair, but I'm tempted to go for it anyway. Has anyone ever done this before? Any advice would be much appreciated!

All Zara today, except for my dad's bracelet.

What a great haircut! A hair model sounds great. A friend of mine works for Vidal Sassoon and I heard you need to be very open with their ideas. It also depends what kinds of hair models? On stage or for show? They will be more fashion forward styles.

I love this dress... the pattern is such a rare floral print! The skinny belt gives a clear definition of your gorgeous waist xxxxxxx

You look so lovely with this super clean cut! And I love the dress -- it's so flowy and feminine!

And I'd bet you can convince the hair show people not to give you a mohawk. I'd bet it'll look awesome!

Wow! A hair model? That is amazing. Definitely go for it. I've gone to hair model auditions and they talk to you about what they want to do with your hair first, so you can be sure that you want to do it. Go for it!
Ps. how tall are you?
