5 Things You'll Relate To If Your Sister Is A Hairstylist

She may be crazy, but at least your hair looks bomb.

If you have a sister, you know that life can be a little crazy with them. From stealing clothes to chewing too loud, sisters can be a pain. Can you imagine if your sister was in charge of your hair? Well, that's my life. Here are five things you can relate to if you grew up with a sister who doubled as your hairdresser.

1. All of a sudden, you start to feel phantom burning sensations on your neck.

Because it's never their fault and she "didn't even touch you" with the curling iron. "Stop being a baby." "You're fine! It's just a third-degree burn!"

3. No matter how hard you worked on your hair, you should've done something different.

If you curled it, there's definitely a few curls that are wonky that need to be fixed. If you straightened it, you for sure missed a spot. Just leave the iron on so she can fix it because you already know it's going to happen. If you blow dry it, you definitely are using the wrong brush, cause why does it look like that? Maybe it's the product... "what product is in this? None? Just start over." If you let it air dry, why didn't you blow dry it? And, of course, it doesn't matter when you last washed your hair it's probably greasy somewhere.

3. Somehow, you always end up the guinea pig.

Even though all you wanted was a simple touch up to get rid of your roots, you're now a part of a brand new technique that she just learned because it's going to make it look "so much better." I will give it to my sister though, it did end up looking much better. Nonetheless, it was terrifying.

4. You drenched every time she washes your hair.

It's probably best if you don't wear makeup when getting your hair done because, by the time she rinses out the color and washes your hair, it'll be gone. Also, don't wear a nice shirt, because that'll be soaked too. Honestly, just get in the shower and wash out the color yourself. It'll be so much easier on both of you.

5. You always had great hair.

I knew how to curl my hair before any girl in my grade and all of my girlfriends would come over before school dances so my sister would do their hair. I had red dip dyed tips in 7th grade and a purple extension in 8th. You rocked the cool looks before they were cool. And when you grow up, and your sister becomes your best friend, then getting your hair done gets even better. And sometimes she'll feed you dinner after.

20 Small Tattoos With Big Meanings

Tattoos with meaning you can't deny.

It's tough to find perfect tattoos with meaning.

You probably want something permanent on your body to mean something deeply, but how do you choose a tattoo that will still be significant in 5, 10, 15, or 50 years? Over time, tattoos have lost much of their stigma and many people consider them a form of art, but it's still possible to get a tattoo you regret.

So here are 20 tattoos you can't go wrong with. Each tattoo has its own unique meaning, but don't blame me if you still have to deal with questions that everyone with a tattoo is tired of hearing!

SEE RELATED: "Please Stop Asking What My Tattoos Mean"

1. A semi-colon indicates a pause in a sentence but does not end. Sometimes it seems like you may have stopped, but you choose to continue on.


2. "A smooth sea never made a skilled sailor."


3. Top symbol: unclosed delta symbol which represents open to change. Bottom symbol: strategy.


4. "There are nights when the wolves are silent and only the moon howls."


5. Viking symbol meaning "create your own reality."


6.Greek symbol of Inguz: where there's a will, there's a way.

7. Psalm 18:33 "He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; he causes me to stand on the heights."


8. 'Ohm' tattoo that represents 4 different states of consciousness and a world of illusion: waking (jagrat), dreaming (swapna), deep sleep (sushupti), transcendental state (turiya) and world of illusion (maya)


9. Alchemy: symbolizes copper, means love, balance, feminine beauty and artistic creativity.


10. The Greek word “Meraki" means to do something with soul, passion, love and creativity or to put yourself in to whatever you do.


11. Malin (Skövde, Sweden) – you have to face setbacks to be able to go forward.

12. Symbol meaning "thief" from the Hobbit. It was the rune Gandalf etched into Bilbo's door so the dwarves could find his house.


13. “Lux in tenebris" means “light in darkness."

14. Anchor Tattoo: symbolizing strength & stability, something (or someone) who holds you in place, and provides you the strength to hold on no matter how rough things get.

15."Ad Maiora" is translated literally as “Towards greater things." It is a formula of greeting used to wish more success in life, career or love.


16. A glyphs means “explore." It was meant as a reminder for me to never stop exploring.

17. "Aut inveniam viam aut faciam," meaning roughly, "Either I shall find a way, or I will make one."


18. Lotus Flower. It grows in muddy water, and it is this environment that gives forth the flower's first and most literal meaning: rising and blooming above the murk to achieve enlightenment.

19. The zen (or ensō) circle to me represents enlightenment, the universe & the strength we all have inside of us.

20. Two meanings. The moon affirms life. It looks as if it is constantly changing. Can reminds us of the inconsistency of life. It is also symbolizes the continuous circular nature of time and even karma.

5 Reasons Jonathan Van Ness Should Slay My Hair And Just Become My Best Friend Already

I mean, can you belieeeveee?

For those of you who don't watch "Queer Eye" on Netflix: First of all, what are you doing? Second of all, go change your life, honey.

Anyways.

For those of you who don't watch "Queer Eye," it's a group of five gay men (the "Fab Five") who go and completely change people's lives. There's Bobby, who does home decor and design. Tan who is all about the French tuck and patterned shirts (he does fashion). There's Antoni who is absolutely precious and teaches everyone how to cook like a pro. There's Karamo who is kind of like a culture coach and he really brings everyone full circle. And then there's Jonathan. His title is "grooming," so hair, facial hair, and the list goes on.

These men are all amazing but there are five reasons why I personally, would want Jonathan Van Ness as my best friend:

1. While he wants to make you feel good... he's not afraid to tell the truth. 

Giphy

So, Jonathan is all about being confident and loving yourself. He also isn't afraid to look at you and say "Hunnyyy, we need to do something about that haircut... let me help." And he helps and you look fabulous and life is great. I think I need someone to help me and make me look fabulous and make my life great.

2. He has an amazing shoe collection.

Giphy

Seriously, his heels are incredibleInstagramand he really can make it work like no one I've ever seen. I have like three pairs of shoes that I rotate through. I also am very, very bad at walking in heels (tall people problems) and I really think he could help me work my life out.

3. He makes everyone feel great.

Giphy

He literally can take someone who doesn't look great at all and turn them into a beautiful little butterfly, and I think that's just something that I need in my life. A little Jonathan makeover if you will.

4. You would KNOW if you looked good.

Giphy

You know that the second you walk out of your bathroom, hair done (by him probably), makeup perfect, and outfit on point, he would not shut up about how great you looked and how many free drinks you're about to get once you hit the bars.

5. Think about the love!

Giphy

Jonathan Van Ness has GOT to be one of the most loving people on Netflix. He is constantly talking up the people the Fab Five help, and he is always snuggling and loving on his four best friends (soon to be five once we become BFFs of course). He cares and you can tell because he literally cries after every transformation.

So all in all, @jvn: One, please follow me on Instagram because I think we really could be best friends. Two, stay amazing because I don't think anyone in America ever wants you to change. Three, please come help me with my hair... it's a mess.
