I particularly adore the intothegloss.com interviews with men and women on their approaches to skin care and the reasons behind their product choices and their beliefs on beauty and self-care.
On Monday, “My Hair Color, My Self” was no exception. It focused on Amy Astley, Teen Vogue Editor-in-Chief, and her decision to stop coloring her hair and embrace her natural hair color.
It was an interesting read, but then towards the end, I found this quote that really resonated with me and knew I had to share it.
I don’t like that society says, ‘Oh you’re old, you can’t have long hair.’ Of course you can have long hair! Instead of taming yourself, Mrs. Prada said, be wilder. With women, everything is about you trying to tame your look: how thin can you be, how tiny, how muscular, and seeking so much outside intervention for your hair and face—taming it.
A new skin care manifesto perhaps? Take care of yourself but refuse to be tamed?
