I’ve always been amazed at women who have the skill to do their own hair and make it look like they just walked out of a salon. I’m always trying to figure out if it’s the products that help them, the styling tools, just the type of hair they have or a combination of everything. Maybe it’s just skill. Now skill with hair is something I don’t really have. Oh, sure, I can braid a child’s hair or whip up a cute ponytail style in a minute, but ask me to make my hair (without locks, braids or extensions) look stylishly trendy and “Houston, we have a problem.”
Although I was never interested in beauty schools I’m thinking it would have been a practical thing to take. Not only would I be able to do my own hair and my daughters’ hair when money is tight, but I’d be able to do hair – even if it were on a part-time basis – to make a little money for my family.
It’s not like the opportunities aren’t available, there are tons of Beauty Schools and Hair Academies in the United States like the Arizona Beauty School. In fact, there are several nearby and I don’t think there will ever become a time when women (and even men) won’t want to get their hair done.
It’s probably more realistic that I’ll go back to school to get a Master’s Degree in Creative Writing, but – you never know – I may looking into beauty school. If I do that then I can stop complaining about my hair.
