Happy Thursday! Here we go!
We all adore Hilary Duff. What is not to love? Cheaper By the Dozen. Gossip Girl. The pop songs of the early 2000s. She is adorable and we love her.
What don’t we love? Lizzie McGuire hair. It was weird when it aired, and it is even stranger looking back from 2016.
Whilst we run around like ducks this week, let’s all take a moment to appreciate that our lives may be crazy right now, but they will never be as crazy as Lizzie’s hair.
What was wrong with it?
There was just a lot going on …
Crimping and standing up and accessories.
Lizzie was a middle school/high school student who rocked a rhythmic gymnastics routine. Once. We are supposed to believe that she had hours a day to devote to piling her hair on top of her head like a goose? Not buying it.
Why did we love it?
Okay — who amongst us didn’t try to stick our hair on top of our heads so that it was acting all bizarre? We tried. But it was impossible. Because the universe knew we had no business committing such horrid crimes to our hair.
How can we ensure that history doesn’t repeat itself?
Wear your hair like a person.
If you find yourself thinking, “Hmmm, it needs more spikes,” you are doing it wrong.
