I could probably fill a separate blog with the beauty mistakes I’ve made over the years. My frugal nature has led me to many DIY beauty disasters. Like tweezing my formerly Brooke Shields-esque eyebrows to a Chola-style thinness because I couldn’t get them even. They’ve never truly recovered.
And I can’t be the only one traumatized by a Sun In incident as a teen. Trusting my BFF to evenly spray it on my hair resulted in a giant ORANGE patch. That was a fun fix. It actually led to that one year I was a blonde. Not a good look for me (though my mom would disagree).
Even better, being a blonde resulted in my 4-hair-colors-in-24-hours incident. I thought I could go from blonde back to brown using box dye in my natural shade. Wrong! Say hello to black, Witch Hazel hair. It gave new meaning to straw-like. Only one salon in town would see me the next day and they stripped my hair to bright purple (like Manic Panic purple) before bringing it back to my natural, reddish brown. Good times!
It’s tales like these that my friends at ULTA want to hear. While at BlogHer ’13 they had video booths available to share your Beauty LOLs, though you can submit them in writing as well. The best one will win $2000. I clearly didn’t understand the assignment when I recorded my video but I decided to share it with you anyway. No judgement!
So head on over to
ULTABeautyLOLs.com to share your best beauty blunder and you could end up $2000 richer. Or just read some of the hilariously horrific tales from fellow beauty fanatics and ULTA Beauty LOLs spokesperson, Wendi McLendon-Covey.
Side note: Wendi was at BlogHer, hosting the fashion show and I ended up in the same elevator with her. But being a total fangirl, I was too frozen to speak or say hello. UGH! I’m probably one of a handful of people that watched her in Lovespring International on Lifetime but, find out what you missed on Hulu. HIGH-larious!
What are some of your Beauty LOLs? I shared with you, now it’s your turn. Don’t leave me hanging, peeps!
