As a member of BlogHer’s Life Well Lived Panel (which is intended to share great tips about getting organized, getting happy, and looking your best), I have been asked to share information about one or more of the following questions.
- Do you have a favorite blogger or YouTube channel for hair tutorials?
- Do you create your own?
- What’s your best tip for finding the best tips?
The short answers are:
- And well, that’s an easy one.
While Google used to be my first resource when looking for just about anything, I have recently found some of the best ideas ever on Pinterest.
Hair tutorials are no different.
In the interest of full disclosure however, I should tell you that I have never spent a great deal of time searching sites for great hairstyles. That is, until this evening. In fact, I never even knew that YouTube had channels until researching the whole hair tutorial thing.
A visit to Pinterest, opened up all kinds of hair tutorials. I learned how to ‘blow dry for volume’, ‘french braid for beginners’, and ‘find a short do that’s great for you!’ In fact, I spent quite a bit of time watching different tutorials. Sadly, my hair will still probably be a hot mess, because I would choose twenty minutes of sleep over twenty minutes of messing with this hair any day of the week.
My friend Judy has great hair. I don’t think she has EVER had a bad hair day. A recent overnight trip with her revealed that she spends over an hour on her hair every morning.
That makes me want to weep because that is seven WHOLE hours of sleep she is missing out on each week.
SEVEN. That’s almost a whole day’s worth.
This you can be sure of: I will NEVER EVER so long as I live spend over an hour on my hair each day.
Shoot. I would bet the farm I don’t spend an hour per week on this mess. And that includes washing it.
I’m not normal. I know.
Anyway, I’d love it if you would share your comments (and read mine!) on the main Life Well Lived page.
And just for fun, the Life Well Lived folks are giving away a Kindle Fire and a $50. Amazon gift card. All you need to do is share a favorite example of how love creates a Life Well Lived Moment. You can go here to do that.
Maybe if I’d show my hair some more love throughout the week, I live a life more well lived!
Have a great weekend, y’all.
