First impressions: How to make ‘em and how to bounce back from bad ones…

We’ve all been there, meeting someone for the first time and saying all the wrong things. Or even worse, being out of your mind so you don’t remember what you said at all! Impressions are a part of life we can do nothing about. The reality is, as much as we try, we do judge each other and our actions.

I believe the best way to make a good impression is to just be yourself and read the social cues. Just mirror the situation you’re in. If the mood is somber, don’t break out into a song and dance. If everyone is pumped up and jazzed, ditch the long face.

Look the person in the eyes when you’re being introduced and give a decent handshake. It’s good to be able to engage in casual banter so if the person asks you a question, answer and then reply with one of your own. One word answers are a conversation stopper and shifty eyes make people uncomfortable.

Unfortunately if you flubbed a first impression HARD, pray to cosmos that you never see that person again! I’m serious! Studies show it is really hard to change someones perspective of you if you defecated on their great grandmother doily at her funeral! There is not much one can do after that but to send a gift basket, mountains of apologies, and an offer to have the doily dry cleaned.

In most cases, bad first impressions happen when you fail to be yourself, you are under the influence or you don’t pay attention to the social ques of the situation. When you look at it like that, it’s pretty easy to avoid. Let it be known that humans are funny individuals and for the most part cannot be pleased. That being said, just do your best and be yourself!

…that’s the fresh perspective

magic monday- heart on

Who are your current hair-heroes? HEART, 1970s : Ann Wilson(right) and Nancy Wilson. Central Park, New York, USA.

Ann + Nancy Wilson of HEART, have forever been an inspiration to me.Not only are they one of the most ferocious sister duos in the history of all sisters, they can slay your heart through song. I mean, Magic Man? Come on now.

Since cutting bangs about a month ago, I've been looking to the Wilson sisters for a touch of hair-spiration, and as a result of countless hours spent in a youtube wormhole (watch this video to see how ann + nancy made robert plant cry), their Little Queen-era gypsy rock style has been heavily influencing my thrift buys as of late (how much black fringe does a girl really need?? am i really going to wear pointed, studded black boots with this silk kimono??)

In about a weeks time, I will be in the presence of these sublime sisters, and here's what I'll be doing to get the same sleek, rocker hair as the Wilson sisters are sporting. Start off by throwing in a bit of Body Guard to your damp hair will not only offer you a bit of heat protection, but it'll also help to smooth out any dry ends. After you've dried up your coif, throw in a few heavy, flat-iron curls. Spray with a hair spray (we like Session Spray or Glamour Queen) and SHAKE IT OUT! For any fly aways, try taming them down with a tiny touch of an anti-frizz cream, like Anti-Gravity. VOILA!!

Now for those super sexy lash-grazing bangs. NOTHING is better for your bang situation than the Freshair Dry Cleaning Spray. I repeat. NOTHING. I've struggled with bangs for years, and I'm now convinced it was because I didn't have this spray in my life. When your bangs are freshly washed and almost too clean, Freshair will give them a bit of extra grit and lift, which in turn takes them a bit off your forehead, thus avoiding greasy pizza face. Then, as the days wear on, a little spritz of this stuff will ensure that no questionable looks of 'did you just crawl out of an oil slick?' be directed towards you.
