I remember my best friend Amy getting her hair done for prom and proceeding to head home and rip everything the hairdresser did out and heading to prom with a big tuff of frizzy hair and tears in her eyes.
Because she hated the 60’s up do that the hairdresser had did. Apparently the hairdresser thought that big giant up swept hair hadn’t gone out of style and looking like Frenchie from Grease was all the rage! “How do I look?” “Like a beautiful blond pineapple!”
I’ve never had a problem with my hairdresser thankfully. I’ve always been very, very specific about how I wanted my hair cut and styled however, I’ve had makeup artists go to town on my face with nightmare results!
I remember when MAC released some new liquid eyeliner and I headed to the counter to check it out. Honestly, I had no thoughts of purchasing it because liquid eyeliner and myself well, we aren’t good friends. I prefer pencil eyeliner but I decided, “Eh, I’ll check it out!”. Of course, I was instantly swarmed around by a makeup artist as soon as I got there and it was one of those, “Did ya want it? Do you want it?” situations. And I kindly declined but she insisted I at LEAST try it on. And I explained I wasn’t terribly good with liquid eyeliner nor was I great at creating winged eye looks so it would prove a pointless purchase for me.
She pressed on and said she’d do a cat eye on me and that she was positive I’d love the liner after seeing it on my eyes.
Well, what a mess.
Performing a winged cat eye on myself is difficult so I imagine it is twice as hard doing it on someone else so I’ll give this makeup artist the benefit of the doubt but damn she made a mess. It was not straight, it was streaky because her hand was shaking a little during application, and I seriously looked like my grandmother had applied my eyeliner. A mess? There are no words for it.
I had to walk with my head down at the mall!
