Don’t let anyone with bad nails tell you how to live your life.
A coworker told me today that she plays an upbeat CD in her car driving to work. It gets her pumped up and zoned in. She’s in a good mood. “And then I come here.” Oh, can we relate to that? Of course, work doesn’t really put us in a bad mood. However, I’m sure we’d rather be elsewhere. Enjoying a vacation, riding the ferris wheel at the county fair, drinking an overpriced beer at a concert, reading a book at the library, working out at the gym.
Whoa, now, wait a minute. Don’t get carried away. Who would rather be at the gym than at the office? I thought so.
I read something interesting this morning as I was getting ready for work. Who’s not guilty of sitting on the edge of your bed reading Facebook or Twitter on your phone before you start your day? Don’t judge me.
Anyway, I guess there’s a new thing called eyebrow wigs. Yes, wigs for your eyebrows. Stick-on eyebrows. Is that really a problem in the world? Men or women don’t have enough hair on their eyebrows so they’re pasting hair on their face? Women will do whatever they can to get rid of the excess hair, but c’mon! Well, yes, it’s a thing.
I googled “eyebrow wigs” and was reminded that, of course, there are people who suffer from hair loss for a variety of reasons. I have no desire to make fun of anyone with a medical condition, and I apologize if this offends anyone. Beauty bloggers are hailing stick-on eyebrow wigs as the next biggest beauty trend. But, this new trend may well be a step too far for the internet. People have been taking to Twitter believe that bloggers are appropriating the wigs, which have long been used by people suffering hair loss due to alopecia and chemotherapy.
Many people have pointed out that bloggers are trying to make something used by people with hair loss into a fashion trend. Eyebrow wigs, which cost around $95 for a set, are used by people experiencing hair loss due to chemotherapy and alopecia, as well as people with sparse brows.
There seems to be another trend worth mocking people. people are taping tiny succulents to their fingernails. Yes, really! Not just painting cacti on your nails, like this:
But adding sculptures, like this:
What’s next? Hairy wigs for your nails?
