That's Me in the Corner

Back in 2006 I used to do silly things. Like get wacky haircuts or take before and after pictures of it and e-mail them to a nice Canadian woman who is launching a hair product business in Canada.

Three years later I am a Cover Girl on the Blended Beauty Website.




Flash forward to today, where I'm still putting weird stuff on my hair, but at least now I get paid for it.


Thanks to Chris of Cynical-C.com and comedian Les Degan for spotting me!

Whoa.. did you get paid for that first website? Totally strange-- You're lookin good though, in both the before and after shots! It looks like the main difference is the lighting, your facial expression and whether your hair is wet or dry. I never understand these things.

Wow. Kinda creepy maybe?

@ Soce: LOL, I did NOT get paid. I guess if you're gonna have your likeness plastered for all the world to see, it's better than a police sketch.

@ G.H.: I'll take my fans how they come.

Actually Abbi, I am the one you should blame. I found it through doing research for my now curls, and showed it to Chris.

You actually did a post about your journey through hair products a while back, thanks to you I am using Kinky-Curly products religiously ;)

What on Earth is that picture at the bottom? A movie poster for the sequel of Tron?

What's the pink baseball player's name? Bubble-yum?

@ Karine: You're the reason why Curly Custard is on back-order at all Ricky's stores in NYC! Readers, here is the post to which she refers.

@ Chris: LOL, we are Cablevision Pixels, of course.

@ Mo: I think it's Hubba Bubba, but don't quote me.

Abbi, they sell the Curly Custard at almost all the Whole Food Stores across the U.S. So, if you have a Whole Food Store nearby you should try to see if they carry it. I am pretty sure they do. Actually, I used to buy it online. But now, I just go to Whole Foods.

Can't live without my Curly Custard ;)

sorry to inform you, but like we were talking about not too long ago, that pixel ad is not going to make it. man, what a terrible idea for an ad! can't believe someone got paid to develop that.

Abbi Crutchfield said...

@ Karine: You're right! Ricky's has been out for months, and the Whole Foods around the corner had an abundance.

@ Crutch: What seems like an unusual concept actually makes a product memorable and increases sales. Who ever thought a talking gecko could sell car insurance? Well, I DID eat a lot of cereal in the 90s because of a talking rabbit.
