always research a hair style before getting one (fauxhawk correction)


In an earlier post about CodeMash, i mentioned that I got a fauxhawk, because it is a mohawk for women.  Apparently, the hair dresser back home was wrong (or i really misunderstood her).  David Beckham (soccer guy) popularized the fauxhawk, so it is definitely not a style just for woman. 

Although I don’t know what i’m wearing on the top of my head now, at least it comes from a soccer guy, instead of dare i say a football player.  And it’s cool to be referred to as "the woman with the mohawk."  Am i having a mid-life crisis at 29 years and 10 months old?

My bad Steven (or Steve, i didn’t grab your biz card).  He was the other person with an actual "fauxhawk" at CodeMash.

From now on i’m going to research a hair style before I get it!

  1. There’s just not enough coffee for west coast people who attend conferences on the east coast. For me,

  2. Haha! Thanks for clearing that up Sara.

    I was catching some grief from some of the other CodeMash attendees because of my "girly hair-do". If its good enough for Becks, its good enough for me. 🙂

    No worries Steven.  I just can’t wait for the soccer v football wars to begin on this post!  =)  

    But then again, this is coming from the person who wore a LSU sweatshirt through Cleveland, Ohio airport security.  When they stopped me going through the metal detector, i couldn’t figure it out.  Then when i realized what i had worn (i totally forogt about airport security), i said, "i deserve whatever you do to me."  But they were cool and only heckled =)

  4. Yeah, the LSU shirt was gutsy for sure.

    Being an OSU alum, and rabid Buckeye fan, I was proud of myself for biting my tongue and not straight-up booing your the first night when I saw you wearing the LSU hoodie. 🙂

    Oh, and don’t let my crazy love of the Buckeyes fool you… I’m also a soccer – err, football – fan. Actually, I’m forward and midfielder on a co-rec team here in Columbus. And while I’m not a huge David Beckham fan, I am a fan of Victoria Beckham!

    Haha, I’d love to see a picture of this fauxhawk! I’m sure David would be proud. He’s a bit of style guy over the pond here in England so you’re possibly ahead of the times there!
