Dearest Angel Wings,

I’ll never forget the first time I laid eyes on you.  Never has there ever been anything more flowing, beautiful and shiny bestowed upon one woman. I went to caress you, but was met with resistance from the harsh glow of “Friday Night Lights” playing on my TV screen. It was then I realized I must worship your grace from afar, as difficult as it was to bear.

So I watched as Tami Taylor never once woke up with bedhead and went about her duties as the supermom with flawless hair. You made her so happy, every week I saw her dancing with joy. That was also one of the first times I realized you were truly sent from heaven. There is no denying there isn’t a beam of light following your every move.

You added some sizzle and came out swinging, literally, bouncing with your golden and glistening curls on “American Horror Story.” Vivien Harmon had to look fear in the eye on a daily basis. I grew to admire you as the mainstay, no matter just how scary and bloody life got for poor Vivien. The vibrant spring in your curls held up even through childbirth! I realized never before has anyone had hair with such luminosity. I wasn’t the only one who noticed, it was very apparent the scariest thing for the other players in “AHS” was just how they were expected to compete with your undiminished beauty.

One could write a book about watching you run. The grace in which you bring to each and every curl during each and every one of Connie’s strides is beyond breathtaking. It would be hard for anyone to believe this type of beauty was on a real woman.

You came back on “Nashville’s” Rayna Jaymes, bigger and more bountiful than ever, befitting your new setting. Your versatility on Rayna is astonishing. I never knew you could steal hearts in so many ways, even entangled in a braid or a side ponytail. I love that you are right where you belong on a superstar head right under the bright lights of Nashville.

Forever Yours,
