  Years ago, though I don't remember the exact conversation, my husband told me he liked women with short hair. Of course I took this as a hint and since then have been trying to find the perfect short style. Mind you, it has been six years since I've had my hair professionally cut. Trust me, there have been more than enough tears shed over $12 haircuts; I just hope I didn't scare those poor hairstylists into quitting forever.

  Over the years, as you can imagine, I've had some questionable cuts. I once had an odd, but shockingly stylish boy-cut on one side and short bob on the other. A couple years ago (no doubt after watching "Ghost") I gave myself the dreaded pixie cut...on this long head?? No way. My general style isn't really conducive for a short do', I already lack any semblance of femininity and for a while, felt as though I should stop wearing rainbows. I eventually decided to stop taking my bald husbands hair advice and once again grow it out.

  I've always been a fan of the pony-tail and had finally reached the length where I had a pretty impressive back and forth swing. One night and just after finishing my 100 brush strokes, my lovely daughters came to me with an exciting ipod app.; you're asked to take a picture of yourself and in just mere seconds you're matched with your celebrity look-alike. My oldest, was a striking Gwyneth Paltrow and my youngest showed a likeness to some other gorgeous starlet. Excited, thinking this was some esteem boosting app. I posed (naturally, of course) for my picture and on the edge of my seat, waited for what I assumed to be my gorgeous look-alike, which was...Mickey Rourke. Pardon me, Mickey freakin’ Rourke? At first, I tried to be positive, he does have luscious lips, but after taking time to research some Internet images...it was getting harder to see the brighter side.

  So, I did what any rational woman would do. I grabbed a fashion magazine and picked out the most feminine style...I was sure I could find time to pin curl my hair every day. I went to the bathroom and spent the next 20 minutes cutting away, but as we all know, it never looks like the picture. However, I was certain this was just the change I needed to take me to the next level, or at the very least, the same gender. I'd like to say that my new celebrity look-alike was Jamie Lee Curtis, or even Bea Arthur, but it wasn't. That being said, and always wanting to see the positive side, Rod Stewart has always been known for his great hair. Forever young, Rod, you and me, forever young.
