Once upon a time there was a girl named Summer. She had a mane of gold, a determined spirit and a lack of Saturday evening plans. It was only natural that the girl decide she wanted her hair to look like this:
But, you see, Summer was a very impatient girl. She craved instant gratification. Annoyances like waiting on an appointment with a qualified hairstylist or paying money for professional services were details that Summer thought to be easily circumvented with a magic touch of her own.
She trotted over to a wondrous kingdom known as “YouTube.” At YouTube, Summer was able to float her way through numerous videos* of other girls with the same ambitions. Layers? Bangs? Doing it themselves? Glorious!
Summer watched and watched these amazing documentaries until she finally could bear it no more – she had to try these techniques out for herself! This is her journey:
Does her hair look like the inspirational photo? Certainly not. But, as with any good fairy tale, Summer learned some very valuable lessons along the way:
- Brushing her hair does actually make it look better. Summer was often of the “brushing my hair throughout the day makes it look dumb” mentality, but she kind of understands why people do it. Fancy that.
- Summer needs to invest in a quality under-eye cream. Girlfriend is toting some major shopping bags under those peepers. Yikes.
Okay, so maybe she only learned two lessons, but she may have just saved herself a few bucks and earned the satisfaction of a job kind of well done, and surely that all counts for something.
What should YOU have learned from Summer’s riveting tale? That you, too, can create easy, DIY layers in your own hair; and if nothing else, you can always upload unflattering videos of yourself to the internet when you’re really bored.
