Compliments for $0

Today I got a lot of compliments.

I didn’t do anything special to my hair.

I didn’t wear makeup.

I didn’t dress up.

So why did I get complimented? Because I wore my hair down.

I normally wear it up in a tight bun with a headband (best for working, less flipping and adjusting required), but today I wore it down and it ended up being a bit wavy/curly.

EVERYONE noticed, and one of my colleagues even commented: “I was wondering who that was, I didn’t even recognize you, I was just thinking: OMG who is that new babe!?”

I guess the best way to blow them out of the water with no hair treatments or makeup is to lower the expectations SO LOW that when you finally emerge looking ‘normal’, it’s a huge improvement. LOL!
