I do not love the first lady's new hairstyle.I can just hear my Nana saying "She's such a pretty girl, she should get her hair off her face and show it."
Since Mrs. O will never ask me, or my Nana, for hair style tips this would be no big deal but now a couple of friends are thinking of getting the same style. I am already picturing me wanting to push their hair back while talking to them. I won't say anything ugly to them, no matter how ugly I think their hair is, but what if they ask be ahead of time if they should do it. Should I be honest?
Dear DNLtFLOTUSNB One (does not love the first lady of the US's new bangs)
Helen is not going to do another post about hair.
You seem to be a fan of honestly so let's try a little... should YOU really be giving advice to your friends about their appearance? I mean, Helen loves you and thinks you are beyond adorable but I have seen some of your candid and older photos. In Other Words...

Even if you do have a record of impeccable taste and stunning good looks, handing out grooming advice only seems like you are saying that others lack what you have.

In hair as in love, there are some mistakes you've gotta make for yourself, Loved Ones.

Why put that out there and risk having it come between you and your friend?
