Woodstock Refugee Hair
My sympathies are with you, Amy!
Curly hair is a bear.
First of all, gravitas is as gravitas does.
However, having "Woodstock refugee hair" could mean that you're one step away from prairie skirts, dumpy European sandals and t-shirts with faded Gaia logos on the front. We must do all in our power to keep you from that fate!!
Bumble & Bumble reportedly makes good products for de-frizzing curly hair, and curly hair is all about products, my dear.
I believe that those of you with long curly locks would do well to seek out a stylist who specializes in curly hair. It will be worth your time and investment. One of my students has gorgeous, long curly hair and she passed on that hot tip to me, who does not have long, gorgeous hair, although it is slightly wavy and full of annoying cowlicks.
Long, curly hair is generally not the right choice for short women who do not have the body of Salma Hayek, for round-faced women or for short-necked women. When we consider whether our hair is right for our general look, we must go beyond the question of "is my hair great, or what?" and think CONTEXT, i.e., "is my hair great on MY face and body?" (Not to mention, "is my hair great for the image I would like to project?")
Best of luck, Amy. And by the way, whatever spectacles frames you're wearing are a very important part of the equation.
