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.

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 where you can't go wrong. Here are 20 small tattoos with big meanings. (But don't blame me if you still have to deal with questions that everyone with a tattoo is tired of hearing!).

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

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

To The Girl Who's Been Struggling To Get Clear Skin, Don't Give Up

You're beautiful the way you are, but if you have skin concerns, I know what it's like to want nothing more than to have clear glowing skin.

I've tried literally everything at this point, from yogurt and turmeric masks to rice water, on my face in hopes of getting clear skin. Last year, I went out in the scorching sun for 4 hours for a dance practice on a basketball court and that ruined my skin for the entire summer. My face turned 5-6 shades darker and left me with splotchy spots and discoloration. Besides that, I've suffered from really flaky, inflamed skin as well as acne on my forehead for years. For me, it seems like the skin problems just don't seem to ever go away and I am tired of it. I look at my friends with flawless glows on their faces and celebrities on Instagram with radiant skin and I want nothing more than exactly that.

It got so bad that I had to go to the dermatologist to get a cream prescribed to me because nothing else seemed to be working, and honestly this was the best decision I made. I recommend going right after noticing skin problems rather than waiting years like I did, though. That definitely cleared up my skin for a couple months but then the acne on my forehead started coming back and my skin looks like it is going back to splotchy.

You're beautiful the way you are, but if you have skin concerns, I know what it's like to want nothing more than to have clear glowing skin. It is one of my biggest insecurities and I feel like I would just be a more confident person if I had smooth, clear, and glowing skin. I am nonetheless determined to keep finding ways to make sure I get the skin I want before going back for another semester of college.

Some of the skincare stuff I have tried is aloe vera, rice water as a toner, yogurt and turmeric (I accidentally added too much and turned my skin yellow), every sample from LUSH's face cleansers, coconut oil, just to name a few.

I am definitely not going to give up on my skin just yet because I am determined to get that glow but maybe I just need to leave it alone for a bit and focus on cleaning up my diet. And DRINK LOTS OF WATER. After all, it's what goes inside that matters when it comes to clear skin.
