When I had really long hair, my standard solution for bad hair days was a ponytail. In fact, a ponytail was my solution for all hair days. Back then I didn't even have bangs, so a ponytail was almost an instant face lift, as if 20-somethings needed one, ever. Anyway, I had trouble sleeping last night because I was so bothered by the whole thing regarding Lindsay Lohan as artistic advisor for Emanuel Ungaro and presenting her first collaboration collection with designer Estrella Archs the other day. As you might guess, if one has 3 weeks to prepare a collection with Lindsay Lohan for Ungaro, the result can't exactly be a huge fashion-hurrah. Nevertheless I wasn't prepared for the kind of public humiliation that Ms Lohan is currently facing - I have never felt the need to have an opinion of her, but now I just feel bad. I am sure she has her own personal problems to deal with.
My short hair means no ponytails, no instant face lifts after a sleepless night, but I figured I could try something different anyway. I have always liked slicked back hair, but it often ends up looking like one has just showered, which I guess is not all bad. I look different though. I have had bangs for so long now that I almost forget what I look like without them.
