Self Portrait, or My Hair Stylist is a Magician

I don’t usually get in front of the lens of my camera. I’m much more comfortable on the other end, and, in all honesty, self-portraits usually require a tripod setup, and I’m pretty lazy. But last Saturday I got my hair cut, and my stylist (Rachel at House of Hair in North Park) took the time to not only blow-dry it – something I haven’t done myself in months – but also straighten it with a flat-iron. The result was nothing short of magical, or so I thought. It was definitely worthy of documentation, if only because I’m also usually far too lazy to straighten my hair myself.
