Now here's a change of pace for me!!! haha HAIR!
I recently fell in love with my curling iron. I can't believe I waited so long to learn how to use one! You see, my hair has gotten pretty long (for me) and a girl need options! I was getting sick of it just laying straight or in a ponytail. And I would try to curl it with curlers to try and get waves like the celebs but I could never seem to get it just right. A girl can dream right?! I'm sure they have a whole crew around them doing their hair. Not to mention that some of it could be extensions!
Well, I bit the bullet and purchased a fairly inexpensive 1" curling iron for $32...not to bad, eh?
Then I did something out of the ordinary for me.
I went to youtube and searched "get celeb waves with 1" curling iron".
WOW...there were lots of tutorials. But the second video I clicked on had me hooked. I HAD to try it out! Here's the video....
Seems easy enough...RIGHT?!
Well, you better bet during nap time I took my shower and prepped for some curling iron action.
Sure it took a little long the first time. But overall, it was actually pretty easy once I figured out which direction to wrap the hair and how to hold the curling iron! I was just so shocked to NOT use the little clamp on the curling iron. It was a foreign concept to me to just wrap the hair around the barrel!!! But that seems to be the "secret" to the loose wave!
I quite impressed with my first time results!
Here they are!
I'm so glad to have other ways to wear my long hair...because I don't want my only "change it up" option to be "cut it off"!!!
I've now "done the 'do" a few times now and I'm definitely getting faster! And if I let my hair air dry for a little bit before I start to blow dry it, it only takes maybe 20 minutes or less from drying time through curling time. Not too bad when it gives you a little self esteem boost about your hair. Especially hair that hasn't been cut in *achem* 4 months!!!!
What other hair tricks are there to do with my new curling iron???!
