Remember back in December when I declared that I wasn't going to straighten my hair for an entire month? Well, the 31 days came and went. And when I finally straightened my hair, it was kind of... disappointing. First of all, it took a lot longer than I remembered it taking. I had to wake up a few minutes earlier and I was a little bit more rushed when getting dressed. Secondly, the day I straightened my hair it happened to be foggy outside. I'm talking 100% humidity and thick, dense air. I had to pull my hair into a tight low ponytail just to tame the impending flyaways.
Straightened hair after a month of curls
It was as frustrating as it was eye opening. I went right back to my curls!!!
So on an everyday basis, I'm all for the natural hair. (I'm definitely going to do a post on my opinions on that... it's totally more than just hair.) But, for special occasions, I think it's more than okay to pull out the blow drier, the straightener, or the curling iron. (Or even book that appointment at Dry Bar for a blow out!)
Misikko.com is like the place for all things hair related. They have given me the absolute best blow drier and straightener in the past, so I was super excited when they offered to send me a curling iron. I'm not as well-versed in curling irons, so it definitely took me a practice round before getting the hang of it. And even then, I still am not totally comfortable with the process. But I do love the results!
So here's the ridiculous video of me trying to figure this out.
Okay yea. I'm kind of obsessed with the big curls!!!
I think that the big curls from the curling iron are perfect for a Valentine's Day date... and the curling iron is a fun little present!
