Episode 2- The Facelift
In a prior blog we have established that I have hair the texture of Beaker the Muppet. My hair texture is crazy at best and unpredictable at worst, there are times when my stylists cannot create a consistent hairstyle. This unfortunate hair issue makes me super susceptible to lots of nonsense you see on TV. I am always looking for an easy way to do my hair. My latest shameful purchase? The EZ COMB.
The EZ comb promises to give you sophisticated, easy hairstyles with a bunch of elastic and beads attached to two metal combs. The commercial claims it is comfortable, easy to use, and will not make your brain hurt like claw clips, or something to that effect. The commercial also claims that you can do dozens of hairstyles.
The commercial was way, way, way, way, way off. Getting this contraption in your hair is like trying to get a group of kittens and a group of toddlers to do Swan Lake. One side may be fine, while the other side is peeing on the floor. It is really HARD to put the EZ Comb in your hair. The elastic keeps snapping back. You need about four hands and a master’s degree in engineering to do anything that slightly resembles a decent hairstyle.
The commercial claims you can do dozens of hairstyles, but the only hairstyle I can manage is a strange mullet-facelift look. Not a good facelift either, we are talking Don Johnson 2008 blown through a wind tunnel look. I couldn’t stand to wear it and Lily won’t let me near her with it in my hands. In fact she runs through the house with her hands on her head screaming “ No mommy! No!”
Perhaps in more able hands, this would be a great styling tool. For me, this was a hysterical disaster.
EZ Combs are available at fine retailers everywhere.
