“Quite a strong statement?”, you say? Well then, why did so many influential men throughout history sport this style. You can start googling generals of war and emperors of nations and find everyone from Abraham Lincoln, to Sean Connery, even how we remember Jesus (although those blue eyes and highlights still crack me up!). If you’re all about joining this legendary league but don’t think you can make it, try these steps to growing your facial follicles faster. The biggest illusion out there is the belief that you can’t grow a beard at all, which is pretty improbable.
Most people assume that, me being an assistant hairdresser, I am really good at styling my own hair. While I probably have more practice than the average joe with a round brush, that doesn’t mean that I don’t get the thing stuck and briefly contemplate where my closest pair of scissors are. I absolutely love making hair full, shiny, beautiful, and curled. I also don’t have the time to do that every day; or even every time that I shampoo (let’s be honest, it’s like twice a week). So for those who like to be a little more ‘on trend,’ we have #TheNewGrungeScene. It’s merely just a more modern way of that relaxed, rebel look we all fell for in the 90’s.
After making a somewhat (entirely) rational, Pinterest-inspired chop to my fairly long locks, I was left with the reality that it would be quite a while to achieve the length and volume I saw get swept away from the salon floor. I'm sure I'm not the only one whose hair seems to grow at a snails pace no matter how many prenatals or Biotin I take! And I knew it would be light years before I was able to fishtail and sock bun like I used to. Something had to happen.
