Thirtysomething Mom Double Dutch French Braid

This hair style is great for a cute on-the-go look. The reverse or double dutch version seems more grown-up than the typical French braid. This looks great with ombre colored hair. I like it because once out, my hair gets a nice heatless perm.

Facebrag, I mean Facebook.

Just bought a beamer,  got a $5000 raise, my Tiffany engagement ring is too tight….  oh please!  Do these people tell this sort of stuff to others in “real life”?  C’mon now!   Unless you are so full of yourself, I’m sure… “I bought the new (fill in the blank)” PLEASE!

The Youth (Gen Y) today make me want to poke my eyes out!

Our morning trip to the mall made me realize that customer service no longer exists.  Store after store we had to deal with rude and unprofessional sales people.  Today’s youth need to realize that communication is so important and that the world does not revolve around them.  I worked in retail and I maintained a certain level of  pressionslism (or at least faked it). Would you believe I was asked to pay additional charges for a mistake to my bubble tea order? I told her she made a mistake,  her response was…  You were not clear on your order… In other words,  you misheard me and made a mistake…… HELLO!!!!?!?!

HAIR: Ombre vs. Bayalage

With Jared Leto’s gorgeous locks at the Oscars,  I wouldn’t be surprised that both men and women are aiming for that gorgeous gradual colour change look.

Definitions:
Ombre hair refers to hair color fading from dark to light, or vice versa. Instead of the color starting from the roots, it gradually becomes lighter, or darker, towards the ends. The word “ombre” in French means shadow or shade.  Urban dictionary.

Bayalage
Balayage is a French colouring technique that was developed in the 1970s. It’s a freehand technique where the colour is applied by hand rather than using the traditional foiling or cap highlighting techniques. Balayage can be used in even the shortest pixie crop however the best results is in hair below the shoulders. Vogue AUS.
