Have you ever had one of those mornings when your perfectly planned agenda goes hideously wrong?
For years I have been marvelling at how hairdressers can create the wavy look with hair straighteners, and I tried and tried on many occasions to recreate that, but with no avail. Then recently, on a Saturday afternoon, I just decided to randomly pick up my ghd and try it and magically it worked! How proud I was. I felt confident. I finally got it, I was on a roll, nothing could stop me now.
So on a recent morning my alarm went off 40 minutes early, and I started to curl my hair at 9:35. I was due in at 11, so I thought I gave myself plenty of time to do my hair and do my eye liner before leaving the house at 10:20 and finishing my make up on the tube, in order to get to work with no rush. By 10:19, only the bottom half of my head was done, and it looked like sh*t on a stick. So in the next couple of last, panicked minutes at home I had to straighten out all the lame curls I had taken ages to do, and rush out of the house without doing my eye liner.
I don’t think I’ll try again, the good instance a couple of weeks ago must have been a one-off, never to be repeated again. A bout of luck.
