I don’t wash my hair every morning and today was a non-hair washing day. On the NHW days, I usually make a little more of an effort with my outfit and accessories. I also spend additional time perfecting the messy ponytail look with extra bobby pins and hair spray. This morning when I left I was feeling pretty good about the look that I “just threw” together.
I strutted around the office all morning proud of my accomplishment. No one needs to know that I didn’t wash my hair. After lunch I went to the washroom and I was shocked at the reflection in the mirror. My hair looked messy, not natural messy, just messy. My necklace had at one point tangled itself up and was lopsided. The outfit I picked had wrinkled worse than a crumpled piece of paper and not sure how I managed to get a pen mark on my chin.
The building property manager should really have those mirrors checked because I know that isn’t what I look like. I strutted back to my desk and decided that there would be no more bathroom breaks today.
