camilleco 's Thoughts:

Major major messy hair. I’d like to think it’s a compliment whenever people think my messy hair is intentional haha :) And whenever professional hair stylists marvel at how much my hair looks like it’s digitally permed. Whenever I go to salons even, they don’t really blow dry my hair straight anymore. They style it messy too! No brushes or combs. They just twist my hair loosely around their fingers while blow-drying, making my hair all natural-looking and wavy. Hmm I should probably get 50% off on blow-drying fees. Humph.

So here’s the story to my naturally-straight-with-wavy-tips hair. According to my mom, as a baby, my hair was extremely curly (read: EXTREMELY curly). My hair looked like it had a life of its own. My mom was clearly an advocate of straight hair versus curly, so like what she did to my older brother, she had all my hair shaved off 3 times when I was just a few months old. The result? My brother now has super fine, super straight hair. I, on the other hand, have super fine, naturally-straight-with-wavy-tips hair that looks like it was digitally permed. I used to hate it but now I’m grateful my wonder-mom did what she did. At least whenever people see my messy hair, they get fooled into thinking I styled it that way, instead of dismissing me as some lazy girl who can’t find time to brush her hair (har har, which I really am :))

My older sister’s hair turned out differently though. When she was still a baby, she had the straightest hair among the 3 of us siblings. Seeing this, my mom felt she didn’t have to shave my sister’s hair off as many times as she did with my brother and I. The result? My sister now has the most stubborn hair in the world. :) Up to this day, she’d jokingly blame my mom for all the bad hair days she experiences. Her hair just flips and curves at all the wrong places. So girls, remember, if you want to control your future baby’s unruly hair, shave the hair off. It’ll get better.

Anyway onto the photo: wore this to another day at our atelier, then off to a by invitation only dinner hosted by Hyatt Hotel with my brother. Hyatt usually holds these private events every now and then for their favorite clients, around 20 people or so. Usually, a wine company sponsors it. That night it was Beringer who sponsored our dinner, so naturally lots of wine were served. I was seated beside a lovely couple who said I reminded them of their daughter. The wife was particularly fond of my braided bangs that night (see last photo). I’ve been wanting to try the hairstyle for some time now, and thanks to Youtube, I finally learned how to do it. Yey! What do you think? I was kinda shy about my hair at first but the braided bangs hairstyle is a good icebreaker. Believe me. :)

Overall, the night was heaps of fun. Even though my brother and I were the youngest in the group (most of them were in their 40s and 50s), lots of good wine to loosen everybody up and never-ending conversations broke whatever generation gap may have existed. The food was awesome as always. Plus I won a really good white wine from Beringer! Yey!

P.S. My new sparkly red shoes from Schutz reminds me so much of Dorothy’s ruby shoes, except mine are the grown-up version. :) Clickity-click!
