  Monday Morning Mirth  

NYTimes: “In the 1990s, there was the “Rachel,” named after Jennifer Aniston’s character on the TV show “Friends.” Before the Rachel it was the “Farrah” — the flipped out, flouncy hairstyle worn by Farrah Fawcett. Now, it’s Ms. Lively, the 22-year-old actress who plays Serena van der Woodsen on “Gossip Girl,” whose tresses are coveted: extra long, ultra-shiny blond with a mussed-up tussle frolicking through the ends.

I’m posting this because there’s no way in hella that I’ll ever be able to have it and I want it, my precious…

Search count: “blake lively hair” = 916,000
(search count “blake lively and penn badgley” = 525,000!)


How to get it? Well, Ms. Lively’s stylist says to just twist
the LONG hair into a loose chignon (extra points here for
knowing WTF a chignon is!) and let it dry naturally. Whatever.

Don’t forget, extensions are your friend! I went into a local corner store the other day and there they were: bags of hair. (Ditto points for the ubiquitous.)
