Hard Learned Hair Lessons

In honor of the cutie-pie-creation of this dust jacket for my new novel (coming soon!),
I am sharing a few hard learned lessons under the all important heading of Good Hair:

1.) Wearing Dorothy Hamill’s haircut will not fool people into thinking you are Dorothy, just like wearing napkin rings around your wrists will not fool people into thinking you are Wonder Woman. Apparently.
(Please, no autographs today. Because I don’t know how to spell very well. And because I don’t know whether to write Wunder Woman or Dorthy Hamil.)

2.) Ever heard somebody say, “JUST a body perm”? Well, this is JUST a body perm.
(The higher your hair is, the closer you are to heaven. Which is why I can see into heaven right now. There are no perms there.)

3.) Of course, I’m the type of girl who perseveres, which is why one bad perm hardly stopped me from having another. And another. And another. Until my hairdresser finally said, “I can’t give you another perm. Your hair will turn to straw.” Naturally, I found another, much more reasonable hairdresser, who was more than willing to turn my hair to straw for me.

(Perseverance, people.)

Now, repeat after me: I will not cut my own bangs. I will not cut my own bangs. I will not cut my own bangs.

Happy hair, my friends!
