Bad Hair Day?

Bad Hair Day?

Wouldn’t it be nice if bed head always looked as cute as hair product commercials make it out to be?

Back to reality! Oftentimes, you wake up, shower, and your hair does not cooperate the way you want it to. It’s the dreaded bad hair day! What’s a girl (or guy) to do?

In an article for WebMD, Nick Chavez, a hairdresser in posh Beverly Hills, offers up some pre-emptive advice: get a good haircut!
