So Damn Cool I Need My Own Soundtrack.

by Lori Dwyer on July 2, 2011 · 23 comments


A few days ago, you may just have seen me all over Twitter and Instagram, with the likes of Mrs Woog, Nikki from Styling You, Emma’s Brain, Kelly from BeAFunMum, Brenda from MummyTime, Zoey from GoodGoog and Trish from My Little Drummer Boys. We were talking hair. We were, in fact, having a big girlie day at Barney Martin Hair (ooh la la!), compliments of Nice’n’Easy, Pantene and Wella.

Mrs Woog. Woog is Hungarian for ‘hot’. Apparently.
Barney Martin, hairdresser extraordinaire.

Perfect for me. I love this stuff. A bloggy day put with some of my favorite bloggers. A day in the city- which is becoming more and more of a rare commodity, the longer we are in Paradise; a road trip to fore-mentioned city with the awesome Emma’s Brain, who’s been one of my best mates since I was 15…. and someone to do something about this terrible hair of mine.

Seriously- I have bad hair. Fluffy and frizzy, without being curly. Dry and fine. And my morning bed head is, dead set, the sexiest thing you’ve ever seen…

Exhibit A. Rock on. I don’t have bad hair days. I just have hair days, with an occasional ‘good’ hair day thrown in.

Apoligies. Blogger is doing that annoying loading-photo-sideways-thing-again.

Anywoo. This is the Before shot….

Note the bad hair.

I volunteered for a colour. Because…. this is what I do. I am the queen of home hair colour. And Nice’n’Easy is my brand. Why…? Because.. well… it does the best job of covering grey hair. And I have been prematurely grey- very grey, if I let it grow out I’d look like Rogue– since I was 20. The shame. I blame my mother.

So. Nice’n’Easy, it seems, just got nice and easier. Foamy, instead of liquid. No drip, no mess, applicator is- dare I say it- squeezy fun to use.

This is Carl. With a C. He gave me a headjob finsihed off my hair dye, when it became apparent that I was doing a very bad job. Have you ever tried to dye your hair with 20 people watching you in the mirror…? No…? Goodness knows why not. I can assure you it was quite unsettling.

Anyway. After sneaking outside in my hair dye cape- which looked very Harry Potter- for numerous fags while my dye set, Carl with a C gave me a washout and a blow job. No… wait.. blow dry. It’s been a while, I get confused.

And the end result…?

Very, very pretty, even if I do say so myself. As Mrs Woog so succintly put it- “You look like a girl!”. Thanks so much Woog. Bite me.

Given the hair,a Charlie’s angels shot seemed not gratuitous but necessary…. call me Jaqui.

And here we are, bloggers infinitum. Glammed up.

There is nothing like a new hair colour and a blow dry to make you feel like a million bucks.

Hell, I felt so damn cool I needed my own soundtrack. This one, perhaps.

Or, ya know, not.

I do believe I have video evidence of you doing this exact act 'singing your own soundtrack', all in it's technicolour glory, sound included.
I do take bribes, however…. xoxo

Super sweet post! You guys were looking rather Charlie's Angels-ish. Could have sworn that was going to be your YouTube soundtrack.
LOL @ Nikki's comment re your next assignment!

Too cool. xxx Glad you enjoyed it, you gorgeous girl.

You are so cute! I too use Nice 'n Easy, light or medium ash blonde. But I think I need to start leaving it on longer cuz my friend could still see some grey :-(


Karen July 3, 2011 at 1:30 pm

Oooh! So pretty! I love it!
Yes, a girly day of new hair cut and some pampering does wonders for the soul! :-)


Ms Styling You July 2, 2011 at 10:40 pm

Hawt, hawt, and hawt … looking forward to our next assignment!


Emma. July 2, 2011 at 9:09 pm

So lovely to see you having a bit of pampering and lots of fun! :-D



PinkPegasus July 2, 2011 at 7:11 pm

Sooooo cute! And you made me laugh. I can be so immature. :-)

I clicked on your soundtrack link. You are an evil woman. Lucky you look hot with your Angel hair.


Jean July 2, 2011 at 6:23 pm

Fantabulous xxx


This Mid 30s Life July 3, 2011 at 2:07 am

Good for you!

Looking hot by the way. xx


Miss Pink July 2, 2011 at 11:50 am

Errrm and seeing as I said it before I obviously didn't think I needed to tell you you're gorgeous. You all are. I'm totally jealous you get invited to "all the cool parties"


Miss Pink July 2, 2011 at 11:49 am

How you described your hair…that's EXACTLY the way my hair is. It's not quite straight but not quite curly (you know where it curls nicely?). It frizzes up so freaking easily. And when I asked Bluey recently how I was "doing as a mother" his one and only complaint was that my "hair was too messy all the time"
My hair is also extremely fine. Like…my kids have more hair than me despite my hair being quite long.
I hate on all the bishes with gorgeous thick hair. Give me some!

Oh, I love it Lori! Gorgeous!! I'm thinking of trying a home color to save some $$$. Maybe I'll give it a shot. You guys are all so glam. x


Mrs. Cody July 2, 2011 at 10:17 am

HA, blow job. That's my kind of hairstyle!


whatsinemmasbrain July 2, 2011 at 10:10 am

HAhahaha! Hair days.. You crack me up. You are a rockstar xxxx


Mum on the Run July 2, 2011 at 9:29 am

What a fabulous day – darling!
I love the Charlie's Angels shot.


beckybiscuit July 2, 2011 at 9:19 am

Gorgeous too, but you already know that.


Nicole July 2, 2011 at 12:08 pm

Mrs Woog July 2, 2011 at 11:40 am
