Okay, so if you haven't guessed it, this blog is about beauty blunders. These are my worst! A little more than a year ago, I wanted to have a red tint in my hair, nothing drastic. So I went to Sally's and picked up products I 'thought' would work. I had a friend help me apply the color. I can not tell you how shocked I was when I saw myself in the mirror afterwards. You'd think I would've suspected something after the fuchsia shower I took. *so naive* I was horrified! Pink hair is cool, but I couldn't feel comfortable enough for the stares that came with such a hairstyle. And I definitely got looks! This late night rendezvous turned into a three day affair; I didn't want to ruin my hair. Having to go to work the next day and explain to your boss that it was a complete accident and that you were not trying to be insubordinate, such an awkward conversation. She was great about it, and started calling me strawberry shortcake, it stuck for a little while. It honestly looked like mermaid Barbie hair!
Last summer I decided to get my first ever airbrush tan. I thought that since someone was spraying me themselves that nothing could go wrong. I had heard horror stories about the spray booths and didn't want to risk it. Those of you who have had a spray tan before know that you must: 1) exfoliate and 2) not wear lotion the day of. They give you special lotion for your hands, elbows, knees and feet. I have such dry, dry hands they absorbed ALL the moisturizer. When the spray ran down to my hands, my knuckles absorbed the solution like a sponge and I was left with 'dirty' 'oompa loompa' hands for about two weeks! I haven't gotten a spray since! *sigh* I wish I were naturally darker. I have olive skin and tan easily but I'm so afraid of premature aging on my skin. Maybe I'll just stick to tinted moisturizer, never had a problem with them before...
If you're not too embarrassed...I would love to hear (or see) other beauty blunders (horror stories is probably more like it lol). It happens to the best of us...all we can do is laugh afterwards, right?
