Hair Thursdays

I have a hair proposal. Would you be interested in a weekly hair makeover-type post?

Here’s what I’m thinking. I would post a submitted photo of a reader’s current hairstyle (someone wanting a change, of course), gather the necessary information, find some additional photos of new alternatives, and have you vote on which style you think would be best.

That way, I could satisfy my “hair-consulting” addiction, but let’s face it, I’m not the be all and end all of hair knowledge. This is a democracy, remember? Everyone should be able to put their two cents in. (PLEASE, for the love of God.)

Hopefully, by the end of each Thursday, we will have a highly-irritated participant who is being pulled in thirty different directions.


What say you? We could start this week!

(I might be getting a little ahead of myself. Maybe next week.)

(Um, that is if someone wants to be the lucky inaugural hair participant. If so, email me at [email protected].)

In other news, my stylist just called and bumped my appointment up to tomorrow. EEK!


If you all are interested, you need to send me an email at [email protected] so I can put you on the list. The list is being formed first come, first served by the order of emails I receive. Once I have your email, I will send you a hair-questionnaire and request photos. I have filled September and early October, but I’m also thinking of doing 2 people each Thursday to keep the waiting time shorter.

    Yes. YESSSSSSSSSS. Hair blogs are the new cupcake blogs! Perhaps readers can be implored to offer helpful photo links and styling tips as well, especially for any of the hair challenged who wrestle with curls on a daily basis. Not that I’m talking about myself. Who me? Unmaneagable hair? Wha?

    Love it!! I love Whoorl Hair Advice! It’s priceless.

    Here is an observation: Short hair is the new black.

    This sounds like fun and it might even be something I’m masochistic enough to submit myself for. I did a post on my site recently about things to do before I turn 30 and one of them included dying my hair (or changing it dramatically). This could provide ample confusion for me! Now I just need to find a photo to submit…

    Oh I wish I wasn’t going for my hair appointment tomorrow! I would have submitted myself for the first round.

    Ok, I’m totally game for the hair thing… but I don’t want to be made over, but I’m game to put my two cents worth in, for sure.

    ohmygoodnessit’stimetogetthebangs!! Can’t wait to see… wait, are you going with bangs?

    I’m pretty sure people will be banging down your e-door wanting help, if they aren’t already. As part of Hair Thursday, can you please suck the humidity out of DC, as it’s totally ruining my style!

    Count me in. I’ll have to take a few photos of my current style before I can be your victim, I mean willing participant. I have an appointment in two weeks so I better get right on this.

    Wow, sounds SO fun. Do it!!!! And in a few months, when I’m ready to get another hair cut, I will submit myself.

    Oh how I want to submit, but I look awful in pictures. But my hair needs so much help! Oh the dilemma.

    I think this is great! I’ve been considering a change. Even though I’m not gutsy enough to go first, you may just get a picture of me ready for advice-o-rama. And I’ll be sure to add my two-cents when I can!

    Oh, I love the idea! And I totally want to submit myself as a victim, I mean, participant. I have a hair appt in about a month and a half – maybe I’ll even get a turn by then because I am SO ready for a change.
