I get paranoid about greasy hair, but maybe it’s time to quell my fears?
That’s a bold thought for someone who walks around in a puff of dry shampoo every day and carries a mini bottle of baby powder (for emergency use only, but that stuff seriously works wonders). The mere sight of shine in my hair induces a systematic breakdown until I’ve sprayed it completely matte again – my hair ambition is zero shine, all the time.
So when I saw this oily, worn-in hair look backstage at Alexander Wang, I didn’t really know how to react (ok, so I instinctively clenched the bottle of baby powder in my bag). It goes against everything I want when it comes to hair but I loved the rock ‘n’ roll spirit. He wanted to have a beauty look that reflected reality, not the perfect dream hair that we all aspire to – showcase a girl who doesn’t care what other people think (hahaha definitely not me when it comes to greasy hair, sorry #notsorry).
Am I the only one, or do you struggle with hair paranoia too? What do you think about this ‘real’ look over a dream style?
