Help Help! I have triangle hair!

Posted by Lipglossiping On January - 1 - 2010

Dudes… seriously, I’m in trouble.  I’m going up to the in-laws in about 4 days and I look like an idiot.

Some of you may have heard my constant occasional bitching on twitter about my hairdresser’s phobia of thinning shears.  I plead with her every time to thin out my layers… and everytime she makes this big show of taking her scissors and half heartedly snipping at the ends.

And everytime I walk away looking like this..

…and worse still, I tip the bitch!

Desperate times call for desperate measures and I bought a pair of these from Boots:

How in the name of God do I use ’em?  Blade down spikey bits on top and try not to go all out Edward Scissorhands on my head right?  I think I’m less likely to get carried away if I use ’em on dry hair too…

Anyone used thinning scissors on themselves? Any tips or IN THE NAME OF GOD, DON’T DO IT!’s for me?

I am seriously gonna look for a new hairdresser, but a half decent one is freakin expensive in this pony-loving, barbour wearing, land-rover driving county I call home and I refuse to pay over £25 to have less than a cm chopped off the ends.


An Introduction to Beauty Blog Link Love

Posted by Lipglossiping On January - 1 - 2010

Beauty Blog Link Love (or BBLL for short) is officially on-air today with this Link Love post. We’re a new community of — obviously — beauty bloggers, and we’re committed to bringing you the best and brightest stars of the beauty blog world twice each month! Don’t worry; this won’t affect the posts on any of the blogs that you’re reading, but what it will do is form a casual, contract-free environment for bloggers to share posts that they’re proud of, which means that you’ll get easy access to the best reading material possible.

Today we’d just like to introduce all of our lovely members so far, so stick with us! If you’re interested in joining BBLL as well, you can find out more here.  Now, onto the bloggers:

~ Vex, with Vex in the City
~ And, finally, the editor of BBLL (Rae,) who also writes theNotice: a beauty blog, which she fills with reviews, swatches, FOTDS, and a side of snark.

That’s all for now! Thanks for reading, and we at BBLL hope that you can find some new favourite blogs out of this Link Love post. We’ll see you in two weeks with links to specific posts that we think you’ll love — until then, stay beautiful! xoxo
