Fantasy Hair Makeovers
Erica's Sexy New 'Do
"Your hair is getting so long!"
Say that to me, and my first instinct is to schedule a haircut. I've always preferred classic bobs to long, bombshell waves. Long hair struck me as vain and childish, while shorter hair felt more modest and professional. Still, I've always wondered what it would be like to be the girl with the long, sexy hair.
I got my wish with human hair extensions, which were styled into big, bouncy waves that made me gasp at my reflection. To hell with modesty -- I looked hot!
Now I know: Bombshell hair takes a village. Armed with detailed instructions on how to curl and style my new mane, along with a bagful of products, I headed to the salon door.
"Wait! You need more eye makeup," said the stylist as he pushed me in front of a makeup artist, who applied a sultry cat eye with dark eyeliner. I was finally ready. Well, almost.
"They gave you Victoria's Secret model hair!" my mom gushed when I met her for dinner. As I removed my coat, her excitement faded. "Is that what you're going to wear?"
"This?" I asked, glancing at my button-down shirt and cardigan, seeing how it defanged the sex kitten vibe. Note to self: Reveal more skin!
