i needed a haircut

The last time I cut my tresses a length anywhere near my shoulders I was in the ninth grade. A time before Brazilian Blowouts, straightening irons or the genius that is The Drybar. Thanks to my abnormally thick mane, this moment in hair history was marked by frizz, a mushroom silhouette and more bumps in the back than a shopping mall parking lot. I like to call it my Grace Coddington moment (only less chic).

Needless to say, walking around like I spent the morning with my finger in an electrical socket wasn’t my proudest hair moment and I haven’t made such a drastic change since. That’s not to say I haven’t constantly made the effort to give myself an edgier ‘do. I have. I considered going brown my senior year of high school. In college, all I wanted was a chop a la Carrie Bradshaw in Season 4 of Sex and the City. Then came my quarter-life obsession with the ombre. Truth be told, my entire life I have been grasping at anything to break me out of my long blonde rut. But finding a stylist who matched my enthusiasm when it came to experimenting with the ultra thick bleached naturally curly mop on my head was more of a challenge than anticipated. So I did nothing for over ten years.

And then two weeks ago, without hope or agenda, I walked into a salon in Dallas I had never been to, met with a hair stylist I had never spoken to, and chopped all of my hair off. So far, I’m feeling pretty good about it. But call me in six weeks.

Gift Guide: 10 Entertaining Gifts Under $100

This is your holiday shopping countdown alert: It’s the 19th of November. Before you panic, we aren’t positing that you should be done with your holiday shopping just yet. That would be hypocritical considering we only just started ourselves. But we are suggesting that if you haven’t given Santa’s list a second thought, now would be a good time to break out the pen and paper. This season we are putting together a series of gift guides to help you find presents that are unique and special for everyone you know without spending time you don’t have tracking down trends that are outside the cultural mainstream. Point being? We sifted through everything out there so you don’t have to.

First up? The hostess. We all have one on our list. You know, that friend (or mother) who would rather throw a party at her home than spend an evening locked in Barney’s with Simon Doonan. The woman with the impeccably decorated home and whose china cabinets are as well stocked as our shoe racks. Yep, that’s the one. Finding her something useful that she hasn’t already got locked away for next Spring’s Game of Thrones theme party might seem an impossible task, but we have managed to scout out ten gifts that are sure to set her entertaining heart aflutter. The best news? They are all under $100. Meaning you might just have some cash left over to bring a bottle of wine to that holiday party you know you’re getting an invite to.
