Real Life is Not Picture Perfect

By Curly Nikki No Comments

 by GG of All The Many Layers It’s always been important to me to be thought of as pretty and polished and nice to look at.  Sounds vain, but as a woman, perhaps you can relate.  I talked about the roots of this a bit here.

In my experience, men don’t really know what they like until AFTER they see it when it comes to hairstyles. If you…

By Curly Nikki No Comments

by Sabrina Perkins of http://www.seriouslynatural.org/ Well, it’s true. I’m not 26…I’m not 30…not even 35 and I passed up 40 a couple of years ago. Yup, that’s right….I’m 42 and will hit 43 around Labor Day. What does that all mean? That just means my hair is 42 too and it ain’t like it was when I was 26 just…
