Today I bring you another FREE printable in the Matchmaking installment. I hope you like the quote and the illustration. If you end up making the washi tape hairclips, this card would match that gift perfectly.
Meantime, while we are on the topic of hair, I thought I would share with you my hair story.
I have always envied ladies who really know how to have fun with their hair. You know the kind. They have impeccable hair. It looks perpetually styled. But not just that, they also seem to have such versatile and co-operative hair that it looks like they have tried every style possible. From the japanese perm to the sassy bob, they work each new style with ease.
Me? I am on the other end.
My hair is thick. Seriously thick. And frizzy.
Also in this climate, my frizzy hair and humidity are like playmates that love to wreak havoc.
It can be hard for hairdressers to understand how much hair I have. I always warn them at the start that I have incredibly thick hair and hence, they have to be careful when layering or cutting my fringe. But somehow or other, they manage to do the very thing I tell them not to do which has left me in tears at too many hair salons.
So after years of battling with my hair, I finally decided to make peace with it.
I wasn't going to berate it for the fact that there was so much of it.
I wasn't going to lament the curls that made my hair poofy.
I wasn't going to complain about the jet black hair that could not be dyed.
I decided to accept my hair.
There would be styles that I could never wear.
But that was fine.
I have learnt to love my hair for what it is and what it is not.
I sometimes wonder whether when age catches up with me, whether I will have less hair and certainly, strands of white hair that might allow for the chance to try a new hair style.
But for now, I am happy to stick with what is tried and tested.
What about you? What's your hair story?
Are you adventurous when it comes to your hair? I would love to know.
