We're (way) over 40. Deal with it.

Nothing There

Tuesday, May 8th, 2012

Bald guys. You gotta love them. I mean, at least you have to love them more than someone with a comb-over. Or a rug. How about those guys who insist on always wearing a hat, as though we don’t know they’re fallow ground on the top?

Come on, guys. You’re going bald. You know it. We all know it. Wearing a hat, a wig or getting hair plugs isn’t going to change that. Women over 40 have an eye for that. It’s actually more pathetic than (more…)

L’Oreal Couleur Experte

Tuesday, November 29th, 2011

Don’t try to pretend you don’t color your hair. Even if you have just a tiny bit of gray, you probably use some off-the-shelf color or get it done at a salon. (If you don’t, you’re looking older than you have to, unless you have really dynamite gray.) Personally, I can’t stand to pay anyone to do something I can do myself (except clean house), so I’m of the do-it-yourself mindset. I’m recommending L’Oreal Couleur Experte (oooh, French!), but, honestly, I buy whatever I find on sale. I mention this particular product because, believe it or not, it is incredibly easy to highlight your own hair and this one makes it even easier.

That said, I only buy this when it’s on sale; other times I look for other highlighters because I don’t highlight every time I color. But here’s what I do do (and here’s my secret): I use one of those old caps with the pull-through holes in it. This way, I get even highlighting all throughout my hair. Of course, at least once I’ve left the highlighter on too long (didn’t hear the timer) and had to pull the hair color bottle out of the trash and reapply over the highlights for a few minutes. Believe it or not, I got tons of compliments.

Saturday, April 16th, 2011

Okay, here’s a touchy subject: weight and fitness. And a loaded question: how much time do you spend working out vs. the amount of time you spend on makeup/hair/facials/nails? (more…)

Shining, gleaming, steaming, flaxen, waxen

Tuesday, October 6th, 2009

Why is it that, when you look at old high school photos, the guys who are bald now were the ones with all the hair? My husband, my brother in laws, virtually every bald guy I know spent the 70’s (and later, as we all know. . . ) with pony tails and big ‘fros. Which brings me to today’s subject: while we know women spend time and money on keeping their curls cool, men are the biggest closet coiffeur-ers. (more…)
