Hey hey, Friday. Happiness. Hope you are all looking forward to the weekend. It feels a bit more Fall like, but looks warmish for the weekend. Let's all just note that when it comes to news, it's been a terrible week. Fires, Harvey, Trump signing shit- it's all awful. So allow me to start this post with a quote.
"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way — in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only. "
Still holds up. You all know where that's from right? Dickens' epic "Tale of Two Cities". Amazing how applicable that is to what we are all experiencing on the regs in this country. But it's more like the worst of times and less like the best. Great words. Great lines. True classic. But enough about that. Let's talk about my hair.
I know, I know. I change my hair like the wind. You long haired types may not understand but us shorter tressed ladies like to switch it up. Right now I have a fairly standard regulation bob and like my friend Katie said over mezze and wine the other night, "you just look so normal". I did not take this as a compliment. So back to the hack.
And as inspiration (which incidentally I just sent to Siobhan, my amazing hairstylist), we have two Edies- Segdwick and Campbell. You will no doubt see the similarities- textured and short and chopped up. Less than normal. That's what I need. I love them both so how to decide. Do I chop into the bob a la Edie Campbell or do I hack off most of it and leave a textured top like Edie Sedgwick? Tale of two cities, tale of two hairdos, tale of two fashion icons. The best and worst of times indeed. Love them both.
So when the going gets tough, the tough cut their hair. Or at least that's the tale I tell myself. We'll see where we end up.
Cause that's what's up this Dickensian Friday in the 212. Yours, in well read haircuts. XO
