I keep seeing these pop up all over the place at seemingly random times. In the day and age of learning SEO etc in order to make your articles, blogs, or images pop up online more often, people seem to be having increasingly bad hair days. The thing I notice the most, however, is that every single one of these articles includes a number.
“How to have a good/great/awesome/amazing hair day in 5 easy steps” “7 steps” “3 quick steps”…etc.
Well here it is ladies and gentlemen, I am jumping on that band wagon. “How to have a good hair day in 1 super fantastic simple step”
Don’t believe me? Check it out:
All you need to have a good hair day, is the belief that you are having a good hair day. I know, sounds way too simple right? Well there it is, that’s all you need. A little self confidence and a dose of belief.
Now some of you may be saying, “Beth you don’t understand, when I don’t spend an hour straightening my hair and putting product in it to stop moisture, frizz, color leak, and the apocalypse my hair springs up as big as Texas!”
Great! Put on a pair of jeans, learn a few chords, and get a back up band. Thats what us Texans call Country Music Award hair or News Anchor Hair…they’re kind of interchangeable in the South!
Maybe you’re thinking that “When MY hair goes bad, it tries to turn into an old school ‘fro and I can’t get the tangles out or make it sit down! How can I be confident in a good hair day with that?” Buy a jumpsuit. Seriously, a jumpsuit, a playsuit, one of those tank top dress mumu things. They’re all kind of coming back into fashion and when your hair goes retro, throw a little retro flair in your wardrobe as well! Everyone will think you meant to do and tell you awesome you look, or how courageous and amazing you are to be up with fashion. (Believe me! My 5th graders LOVE my new cat eye glasses and weird long poofy hair days)
Hair wants to stick out? Let it! Hair wants to be flat on one side and puffed up on the other? Throw a couple of cute clips on the flat side and rock it out! JUST BE CONFIDENT IN IT! If you act as though you think it looks good, you may have someone tell you otherwise, but people will respect your sass and believe in your vision.
However, please please PLEASE do not confide in your coworkers, boss, boyfriend, or that sassy waitress you kind of think about as a friend but would never invite to a sleepover. If you confide to them that you bought the jumpsuit to make the hair work, or that you don’t really like the country look, or whatever it is…then your confidence just looks like desperate attention seeking or, possibly worse, low self esteem.
So the ONE STEP to a good hair day? Just have the courage and self esteem to KNOW that you look good no matter what. And rock that retro country music award rap hair until you can get it to rock your preferred style.
