Ah, the healing power of hair styling… I just finished flat ironing my mop (going through a straight hair phase) and, sure, my cold’s no less uncomfortable — nose is still stuffed and throat feels like someone took a cheese grater to it — but because I like how my hair looks right now, I couldn’t care less, ha!
The open thread has a similar restorative effect, like a healing tonic. If you’re new to the blog, the open thread is basically where we chat in the comments about whatever strikes our fancies. It can be about makeup and beauty, books, movies, work, or about anything else you feel like sharing.
A few ideas to get the conversation started…
- How’ve you been wearing your hair lately? Since it started getting hot around here, updos and ponytails are again the styles du jour, but I’ve been wearing my hair straightened lately. That way I can either put it up or leave it down without having to worry about it getting frizzy. When I leave my hair curly and put it in and out of a ponytail, my curls go crazy and it’s total frizz-ville!
- Would you be interested in occasionally reading reviews of men’s grooming products? I don’t think very many men read MBB (there are like 1-2, God bless ‘em!), but the other day it hit me: a lot of women buy stuff for the men in their life, right? If you’re interested in reviews of men’s products, please let me know.
- How do you make new friends? One of my summer goals is to make as many new friends as possible. Do you ever make friends online, or do most of your friendships start at school or work?
Are you ready? I’ll bring over the iced tea and meet you in the comments!
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
