So I read Heather's blog today and found out that a wedding I did hair/make up for was featured on two different websites: Wedding Chicks and Vintage Glam! My name was mentioned in one of them and the other said they loved the hair and makeup! ahhh...so awesome!

The other day Jason asked me what was up with Fast and Furious making more money in it's opening weekend than all three previous fast and furious movies put together. I had some explanation of why: bla bla it's all the hype, bla bla there aren't any other good movies to see right now, bla bla movie tickets prices are way highter, bla bla bla. But today I realized that all of that was WRONG. I was WAY OFF. This song came on as I was driving: 'We Are Rockstars' by British electro-rock band 'Does It Offend You, Yeah?'. It's the song they play in the Fast and Furious trailor. Suddenly all I could see was Vin Diesel showing off his hot muscles in his hot muscle car and I wanted to drive over to the movie theater. It's the song! It's like the pied piper calling us to join him! And it's working! If only movies weren't $11 I could be watching it AGAIN!

Have you heard? The women in Spanish Fork, Utah and Amy Winehouse(**see below) are doing back flips and crying for joy over this: BUMP ITS. Someone has come up with a way to get around back combing, teasing, ratting, what have you, to create that little nest of volume some women love on the crown of their heads.
I just about died when I saw the infomercial on it tonight. Seriously, I thought my heart stopped. I am a hair dresser trying daily to help women update their look. I can't tell you how many women love to do the beehive back comb thing they've been doing since the 60's.
I don't know what the excuse is for younger girls doing it. They must have just learned it from their mothers. It's the worst in Utah. Going to beauty school there, I couldn't get away from it. I did however convince some to let it go. "There are other ways!" I'd plead. "Use a volumizing shampoo and conditioner. Try a root lifter and thickening styling product. Round brushes can do amazing things!" That's when it started. I was on a mission to rid the world of snarling their hair in to balls on their heads to create volume. This mission was put on hold when I moved to Vegas. Two words: Show Hair. I was back combing and ratting like there was no tomorrow. But this was for a SHOW on a STAGE, not to go to the MALL or heaven forbid CHURCH. I knew it had turned into an epidemic when this girl showed up with what appeared to be HORNS. She had back combed her hair on each side of her head but not the middle. It looked so crazy I wanted to dig my fingers in to her head and start shaking and scratching until she looked like my current facebook picture.
"You want volume?? I'll show you volume!" But I left her alone and just sat behind her each week and stared in wonder: "What's in there? Is that just her hair? It couldn't possibly be snarled ratty hair. It's too big! How? Why?"
I don't know what to do. With this woman's invention, there is no more fighting the big nasty snarl poof. She's made it a staple in our society and she is reeping the monetary benefits. You can watch a video of it here. (I must warn you though, you might want to kill Roy Orbison before it's over.) Do you think the girl with the horns will buy two and put one on each side of her head? Oh how I hope and wish...
