Jaws dropped when pictures were released of Zooey Deschanel sans her signature bangs at the Met Gala. Not that it looks bad or anything…as if that ageless, blue-eyed dollface could look anything less than adorable. I don’t think it’s in her programming. But it still caused a universal double-take of, “Wait, THAT’S Zooey Deschanel?” It’s as if the Zooey Deschanel persona is so defined that altering it in any way is nothing short of blasphemy. ...

"It looks...different" said my ex-boyfriend, upon seeing that I'd cut off my shoulder-length dark hair into a shorn look inspired by Michelle Williams and the never-ending encouragement of my already pixie-cut friend Hannah. Different? "No shit?" I replied. Of course it looked different. It was different by six inches. He followed with another classic: "I just can't believe you cut it. It's gone." Change is hard. I get it. But hair grows back, and it's a style ... Read More
 Recently, I was hanging out with a friend who told me that she has been obsessed with making Katniss Everdeen braids lately. I immediately thought (after reading The Hunger Games series and watching the movie four times,) "WHY HAVEN’T I TRIED THAT YET?!" So I went home, researched what I needed to know, and started practicing. Here are some DIY tutorial videos, so you can get that Katniss-style braid too! You need to a flashplayer enabled browser to ... Read More
I could go on for hours about the annoyances of having long hair: having to specially schedule time to wash my hair every week, making sure to tie it up every night to prevent knots, dealing with the jungle of knots that develop in spite of my tying it back the night before…I’ll spare you all the rest of my grievances. But as of this past Saturday, I have been relieved my crowning glory – all 21 inches of it! Fed up with having to maintain all ... Read More
Nowhere in my life does the statement "The grass is always greener on the other side" ring truer than when it comes to my haircut. If my locks are long, I dream of lopping them off, and if my hair is short, all I want is to be able to braid it down my back like those girls on Tumblr. The most intense source of my hair anxiety, though, is whether or not to get bangs. Girls with fringe seem to always be walkin' on sunshine, seem to just know how to wear those weird ... Read More
So I have this insignificance of an Afro that I am trying to grow out, Angela Davis-style. Lately, though, I have been getting tired of looking at it. It's not that I hate it---I love my hair---but I have dyed it every color you can think of and I'm looking for something different and fun for the rest of the winter. Ever watch Poetic Justice? You know, the movie where Tupac and Janet Jackson make an intense love connection? Well, Ms. Jackson--cause I'm nasty--has ... Read More
