Overcoming "Crack Whore Hair"

It’s the morning moment you realize you should NEVER have washed your hair the night before a day of big meetings.  Clock is ticking, ten thousands things to do the last 15 minutes before you walk out the door and it’s decision time.  Do I spend these last moments in front of the mirror fighting it with the straightening iron, or do I bun it up and make the best of it?  It’s what my friend Tara calls “crack whore hair” and there is not a pony tail or cute updo that can hide it.  It basically boils down to a hand full of mousse, some heavy twisting, wrapping and clipping to keep it tame long enough for me to get through my meetings.  In other words, “it’s bun time.”
Not a fan of the bun, always thought it made me look old and frumpy.  It was the clean up job Cameron Diaz did in the Bad Teacher flick I watched over the weekend that inspired me to reconsider it.  So like Cameron, I slipped on a tidy little black dress, horn rim glasses and up went the bun.  Decided to do some big pearl earrings, a white cardi and black sling backs to finish off the look.  A Chanel basic b&w and OMG! Can we say “Hot Librarian?”
Two business meetings later, three scary investors and a couple hours of grueling LA traffic, I had buttoned up two major deals while still looking chic as ever.  I had beaten crack whore hair for one more day!  Thx Cameron 😉
