Am I famous yet?

I have always envied those lucky gals who can go to a salon, magazine pic of celeb hairstyle in hand, and say, “I want my hair to look like this!”  And they leave, hair shining and swinging, looking just like said pic.  Oh, believe me I’ve tried, but it has always ended in an epic hair fail.   Why, you ask?  Well, my hair is uber thick, coarse in texture, and naturally very curly.  For the most part, I love it.  But, every once in awhile, I crave a change and I feel like I don’t have a lot of options- curl with gel vs. flatiron straight.  I know, I know, “first world problems” and all that;)

Yesterday, I went to a fab local salon to get my hair thinned out.  Now, to give you an idea of what this entails, I told my stylist, “Just keep thinning until it looks like there’s a small dog on the floor.”  And so, she did:)  A couple of kids and their Dad, sitting in the nearby waiting area, looked on and giggled as the pile grew.


Then, on a whim, I decide to go for a thicker bang, inspired by a few pics I found of Katy Perry and Zoey Dechanel.  Nothing major, but I am so pleased that for once, the end result bears some resemblance to the pic.  Booyah!


What do you think?  

Who is your celeb hair inspiration?
