Sometimes I may tell clients things they're not dying to hear, but it's never because I'm getting a kick out of it. My life would be a lot easier if I just "yes"-d everyone to death, but everyone would look a lot crappier.

Climbing out from under the crushing weight of all those rules about short hair is one of the most freeing things I’ve ever done, and I want other women to do it, too.

What’s with this whole short hair having to be styled to look cute thing?

As silly as it might sound, I really think writing about beauty can help women.
