In with a bang

Little sis and momager at Alero's on U St.

My mom and sister came to visit me from New York this weekend.  While I knew that we were going to celebrate my sister’s 17th birthday at Alero’s on U Street and take her on a college visit to American, I did not expect our impromptu at-home salon experience.  I’m used to styling my own hair, complete with roller-set and hood dryer in my apartment, so it was nice to have my mom, affectionately known as my momager,  play hairdresser while she was here.

I was ready for a new look, but had no idea what to do. I’d had bangs the year before and loved them, but after letting them grow out, I was reluctant to cut them again because I was afraid of looking too young and not being taken seriously professionally. At 25, I often get mistaken for a teenager when I’m not all dressed up in workwear. After some coaxing, I decided to abandon caution, and go for it.

In this economy, you may not be able to afford a whole new wardrobe, but a haircut will give you a whole different look and make your clothes look new.

Stumped? Need some ideas on what to do with your hair? Check out these hairspirations:

(Google images) Janelle Monae's hair is funky enough to express your individual style, but neatly pinned up for a professional edge.
