A Hair Story

Hello readers! It’s me, Pepper, and I’m finally back on the blog! Apologies that is has been so long since I last blogged (I’ve been pretty tied up with my day job as described here).

So I’ve given a lot of thought as to what this post should be about given that I haven’t blogged in such a long time. Should I update you on my love life? My graduation from Stevens Henager (and free laptop)? My silver medal that I won in a rollerblading competition? My trip to NYC? Well after watching a truly inspiring episode of A Baby Story on TLC (my favorite network after BET), I’ve finally decided to blog about my hair. For some reason I find myself blogging about my hair a lot, but I think that is because I like to try new things (a few of you might remember the post I did a few years ago about the time I got bangs). It could also be because I have a passion for hair, so much that I even considered dropping out of SH and going to Paul Mitchell in Provo.

Anyway, my story starts on a beautiful summer day. I was lying out on my trampoline in my cute suit from Lime Ricki when I thought, “Hmm, maybe I should try something new with my hair?” Lucky for me I had a stack of magazines with me on the tramp so I started flipping through them to find ideas. I found a variety of colors and styles, but so many of them were “too Vogue,” “too Amanda Bynes,” or “too Anne Hathaway.” Discouraged and fed up, I turned to my Samsung flip phone and sent a blast to my gurlz asking for ideas. Just as the golden hour (see Kerry Soper if you don’t know what the golden hour is) was approaching my phone made the “driod” sound which meant I had a text. It was at that moment that I flipped open my phone and saw the hair that I HAD to have (see below for reference).

I have to give full credit to my gurl PA as she was the one that sent me the above pic. I scheduled a haircut for the next available appointment and ladies, let’s just say that I look G-O-O-D! I know that you are probably dying to see a picture of me with the new hairdo, but you will have to wait until my next post (hint: video tutorial).

In closing, I just want to leave you with the wise words spoken my one of by heros and political role models…

“If I want to knock a story off the front page, I just change my hairstyle.”
-Hillary Rodham Clinton
