Last weekend I saw Friends with Kids, which was totally hilarious but beWARE: It was also an emotional GUERILLA WAR.
I’d forgotten I’d told Lavs I’d go with her to see the movie, just knowing I’d love it because of its amazing cast. I think I saw the trailer a good six months ago and promptly forgot the whole plot. So I thought I was going to see a movie about other people with friends with kids. And naturally, I assumed it’d be about how annoying it is, how boring the conversations become (Oh, REALLY? Is your child a baby genius? I’ve never heard anyone SAY that before. Oh, you want me to take three modes of transportation to visit you in your suburb/borough so you can be distracted the whole time? FUN!), how little in common you have with them.
ANYWAY, what struck me throughout the movie on a purely shallow level (obv) was how massively HIGH Jennifer Westfeldt’s cheekbones and how INCREDIBLY glossy and sunny her blonde hair looked throughout. In fact, when her character self-deprecatingly tells Kurt (played by spicy Ed BURNS, P.S.) “I mean, I can put myself together, you know? But I just have good hair,” it struck a chord with me. I believe in the power of a not-so-hot gal upping her overall beauty quotient with some epic locks. Hair can do a lot. Julie’s glossy blonde hair boasts ZERO frizz and constantly looks like it’s just been glazed.
Want to score a Julie-worthy hairstyle on your own? Check out Marc Anthony Bye Bye Frizz Keratin Smoothing Shampoo and Conditioner ($8 each at ulta.com). The former’s sulfate free, so it won’t stip your hair of its Julie-levels-of-fabulous COLOR or wreck your keratin treatment, if you have one. And if you don’t have one, the brand makes its own at-home version you can try for yourself.
And tell me: Do you agree that having amazing hair can make even someone with unnoteworthy looks become totally smoking? ALSO, did you see Friends With Kids? What did you think?
