I was recently at my salon, watching three sixty something ladies get their short hair teased and encapsulated in hair spray for the week. Here I am having just turned forty one and all I can think as I watch them and their hair bouffants is– why do older women CUT THEIR HAIR SHORT? Is it a rite of passage one must undertake as one sails into the twilight years of one’s life? As a woman ages- does she need to let go of trendsetting hair extensions lest she be branded a “desperately seeking the fountain of youth old lady?” Well, now that I am forty one and feel anything but desperate- I can say with all certainty you will never find me sporting a short hairdo- and if that day ever does comes I will be the first one to sport trendsetting hair extensions. And now that I’ve made sure to seal my fate on the internet for all posterity I am ready to bring some GLAM into my life with these seriously beautylicious goodies to keep your pout perfect, your hair luxe and your skin luminous!

And your hair–will thank you if you use this One ‘n Only Argan Heat Ceramic Straightening Iron This One ‘n Only Argan Heat Ceramic Straightening Iron is an evolutionary flat iron that shines, smooths, and nourishes hair naturally with the help of its ceramic plates that are infused with rare Moroccan Argan oil.
It is guaranteed to revitalize each strand of hair, protect color, and condition. It’s ceramic plates are made with Sol-gel technology which is smoother and stronger than other flat irons.
The result is frizz free hair with brilliant shine, while preserving the color and integrity. And of course some gorgeous hair jewels are always fun! I really like this Asos Mini Stars and Jewel Headband
