I wore my hair in a ponytail yesterday.
I have not done that since the 5th grade when my boyfriend broke up with me because he said my hair did not look good in a pony & I dressed like I was in the 50’s. I do not blame him for this. It was the most honest thing anyone has ever said to me.
I also don’t wear ponies because have y’all SEEN this nose of mine?! It needs to be under a dark veil of mop-like hair at all times.
I was in a photo shoot yesterday (I am a model, autograph signings TBA) and they ponied my hair. I found it freeing, really. By nature, I am a nervous hair player. By nervous, I mean that I touch & twirl my hair around my fingers literally all the livelong day. Like, if there is a split end, I will find & destroy him. You could say it is my nervous tick. That, and the word vomiting I still haven’t gotten under control. I’m a work in progress.
The point of the above in its entirety was to reveal that I had pictures of myself taken yesterday without sounding too conceited yet I think failure has found me.
