I went to beauty school when I was 19 because I thought it seemed funny, not because I thought I'd be good at it. I was terrible at first. I gave a girl a perm, and she cried.
Honestly, I find so many fields - fashion, art, music - totally boring and restricting if you just stick to one of them and try so hard to fit into that thing.
Everyone tries to be so slick and modern and computerized. I've always done everything myself with little money, so I guess it's become 'my look,' but it's not really intentional.
