Sometimes we can get so caught up in what we see online that we forget that it doesn’t always depict reality. It’s easy to scroll through someone’s Facebook or Instagram feed and think their life is so much better than ours, but it’s important to remember that what you see onscreen isn’t always what you’d see in real life.
That’s what hair colorist Ursula Goff set out to prove with one very enlightening Facebook post. Looking through Ursula’s Instagram is like reading through a colorful fantasy book. She’s able to bring colors out in hair that are so bright and beautiful that you almost have to shield your eyes!
Though she clearly has no problem looking fabulous, she took to social media to show that everything isn’t always rainbows–especially when it comes to her hair. ‘Social media can make it easy to feel like everyone else is awesome and perfect all the time, but that’s really never true,’ Ursula said in her post.
At the beginning of December, Ursula posted two images of herself side by side–one where her hair looked nothing short of spectacular, and one where it was not-so-spectacular. Along with the pictures, she wrote, ‘I didn’t edit either one of these photos, but they were taken just a few days apart. I think it’s important to note that lighting, angles, facial expression, and make-up make a huge difference in photography and presentation.’
