Porn Star Hair (or Not)

I got nothing for Monday that is remotely creative. No project. No mod podge. No stitchwitchery.

So why not post something that I have been thinking about.

Porn Star Hair (not that I have seen a porno . . . Ahem, cough cough). You know the kind of hair I am talking about. Long, thick, shiny, bouncy . . . I have always wanted Porn Star Hair. I think I had it in the past but didn't appreciate it.

Now that I am older, my hair has changed. It is drier. Not as thick. I always think I am losing it.

So on Friday, I had to give up my dream of Porn Star Hair and cut it off. My hair was reaching the girls, which are slowly heading towards Venezuela. But, I was kind of done with the fantasy of Porn Star Hair.

I told Nicky my hair stylist, that I wanted it just skimming my shoulders. After she cut it, I said something I have never said to her in all the years we have known each other, which is a very long time. "Cut it shorter." Nicky replied, "Shorter?" I said, "Yes."

She cut off about 5-6 inches and it is bouncy and just skims my shoulders.

I love it.
I hope to recreate it.
I hope to one day utilize this shortened version of Porn Star Hair.

Doesn't it feel so liberating to cut off long hair??? I did it recently too and I love the change.
I do agree that we need some pictures!

I can relate to everything in this post! I went to a new salon the other day and the hairstylist was about 28 years old. She told me I really needed to go shorter because long hair was not attractive "on someone my age". First of all my hair barely touches my shoulders and 2nd I AM NOT THAT OLD!

Shoulder length hair is hardly long. Your hair stylist is smoking crack :)

lol...you make me laugh! Loved the quote by the way, because I think it is so true. Growing up, I had to wear my hair, really however mom wanted me to. But once I reached high school I started experimenting and then one day I saw supermodel Linda Evangelista's short crop and told my hairstylist: "cut it all like this" (showed him a pic). I have now been wearing different versions of my short hair and as much as I have tried to let it grow, I always come back for more. This is my porn star hairstyle illusion. :)

I used to work at a movie store and lord knows I got my fill of porn star hair when the new shipments would come in. I just yearn for pretty, not greasy, but shiny hair. How do they get it so shiny?!?

That's funny...You know what porn start hair is better than Real Housewives of O.C. hair.

Do share your new hair cut! I get BKTs (Brazilian Keratin Treatments) to tame the curl of my hair. I wish I had the balls to go back to the pixie cut I used to rock.
