My hair may look sleek in my official Ladies’ Lounge photo but it’s actually a crazy mix of waves, frizz and random straight pieces. Getting it into a presentable, okay-to-leave-my-house condition involves round brushes, leave-in conditioners, serums and way too much time and muscle power. So when our beauty director, Erica, suggested I play guinea pig and get a Global Keratin smoothing treatment—which promised to make my hair “more manageable, easy to style and frizz-free” for up to 5 months—at a local salon, there was no way I could say no.

I’ve had basically the same haircut my whole life. I’m not one for products or for spending quality time with the blow dryer, so my style is pretty much what my hair does naturally. But I do like to experiment with color.
My hair has been just about every shade the drugstore has to offer, as well as highlighted, low-lighted, and even something called “glossed.” Most of the time, I’ll default to some shade of blond, like the photo on the left.
But recently, I decided to do something daring: go back to my natural color. Granted, I’d been dying my hair so long I didn’t know what natural was anymore, but why should that stop me?
I went to the salon, threw around words like “chocolate” and “coffee” (two things on my mind all the time anyway) and came out with hair I hadn’t seen since grammar school.
And the funny thing was, for some reason I felt like I looked more exotic, more drastically different than I’d ever looked when I didn’t have my God-given hue. So I’m sticking with it (for the time-being, at least), and in honor of Fresh New You Week, I’m challenging all of you to try something bold — even if for you bold means doing something completely natural.

Are you a fan of the epic food magazine? Conde Nast reported losses in the company and announced that it’s closing Gourmet, Cookie, Modern Bride and Elegant Bride magazines. Foodies everywhere were shocked and dismayed, especially on Twitter – where Gourmet editor-in-chief Ruth Riechl herself even tweeted, “We’re all stunned, sad.”
The internet is in a flurry over deciding whether or not he deserves it – the supporters are filled with pride and the nay-sayers think he really hasn’t done enough in office (or even had the time to do enough) – to get the prize. What do you think?
Cute, funny…or just plain creepy? TV’s favorite cartoon mom will be gracing the nudie mag’s November issue cover, and will even have a “sexy” spread of pictures inside. We’re sure Simpsons fans will rejoice, but it sort of freaks us out.
We know how much our readers love hair stories — but this site won’t show you how to get gorgeous styles. But just for laughs, you need to head over to dontjudgemyhair.com to check out the craziest, most hilarious do’s you’ve ever seen — faux-hawks, mohawks, mullets — and even something called “The Hermit Crab.”
