Have you ever seen those tutorials where you roll your hair up, tie the pieces with rags, and the result is gorgeous curls?
I’ve always been interested in the technique- and I know I must sound crazy because I have naturally curly hair. But sometimes I feel like my curls are erratic…unpredictable…frizzy…fluffy…it really all depends on the day. So, I cut up an old t-shirt, and got to work.
My hair was already straight (I straightened it two days ago), so I spritzed it with water and curled small pieces all over my head. For good measure, I also blasted it for a while with my blow dryer to heat everything up.
I thought it looked pretty cute in the rags!
I also thought I looked like a 50s housewife, so I threw on some red lipstick and a retro-inspired dress. Ya know…for good measure 🙂 I then waited a few hours (4 maybe?) and took them out. Disappointment ensued:
Yea. the little curly bits at the end are cute, but I could have done that in like 5 minutes with a curling iron. What gives?
Well, I think I didn’t leave them in long enough, and some tutorials said you need to sleep on them. I also might try it again starting with wetter hair- maybe my natural curl will help things along. By the time I got to Brookline to meet up with Dave on his lunch break (for tacos and elote at Dorado Taco…yum!), most of the curls were gone and all I had was a little flip. At least it was cute! 🙂
