Overview

Writer, comedienne, and full-time Blonde, Selena Coppock offers up adventures, misadventures, and golden-hued nuggets of wisdom in a laugh-out-loud anthem for those of us who really do have more fun. . . .

The modern blonde is savvy, wise, confident, capable, and not afraid to laugh at herself when the occasion calls for it. She knows who she is and is prepared to subvert all stereotypes (although she's not above wielding her golden tresses to her advantage), and knows how to be both classy and a little brassy.

In the way only a Boston-bred New Yorker who once won "Best Hair" in her high school graduating class could, Coppock doles out tongue-in-cheek advice about avoiding hair disasters, the consequences of dating a man who cares a little too much about his own hair product, and so much more in an outrageous essay collection that will have even the staunchest of raven-haired beauties considering a trip to the nearest salon.

Meet the Author

A natural blonde who is (now) more faithful to her colorist than she has ever been to any boyfriend, Selena Coppock is a standup comedian, storyteller, and writer based in New York City. When not pushing her pro-blonde agenda, Selena can usually be found in a dive bar lamenting the breakup of Guns N' Roses and putting Bob Seger's "Night Moves" on the jukebox. This is her first book.

The New Rules for Blondes: Highlights from a Fair-Haired Life 5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.

Being born blonde, I was intrigued by author Selena Coppock’s latest release, THE NEW RULES FOR BLONDES: HIGHLIGHTS FROM A FAIR-HAIRED LIFE, and had to know more. From the moment you start reading, Coppock will have you smiling no matter your hair color. And the humor doesn’t stop until the last paragraph. This is a collection of essays from the standup comedian that form a hilarious guide to being blonde. She tackles how the world doubts the intelligence of blondes while secretly wanting to be one. Coppock gives tongue-in-cheek advice about hair care and running in heels, while relating some of her own misadventures as a blonde. You might even say this is an empowering book. Listening to the audio version with ear buds, you don’t mind the looks you get from strangers when you laugh out loud or find yourself agreeing with the author (out loud). You’ll just smile at them, flip your hair and go on. THE NEW RULES FOR BLONDES is a must read book for anyone who enjoys life and laughing. Simply put, this book is fun entertainment. FTC Full Disclosure - This book was sent to me by the publisher in hopes I would review it. However, receiving the complimentary copy of this book did not influence my review.
