I really believe that at my ages, I should have my hair routine down. I should know how to give my hair a good blow out, body, and a style that could last all day.
But I dont! With moving so much I have had to change stylist so often, that I cant get into a groove. I also had a very bad experience (far too dark color, and an awful awful cut!) and I have been scared to do much.
I am not sure how I stumbled on this hair trick, it was by total accident, but it works. And I love it.
When I get out of the shower I put in detangler and Paul Mitchell anti frizz, let it air dry for a couple of minuets, and then throw it up into a tight bun, on the top of my head. And thats it.
I work weird hours, well not too weird, I work New York banking hours, but I am on the west coast. So when I have to leave my house before 6 am, doing my hair is not first thing on my list. By the time I get to the office, I undo my hair, spray a little hairspray, and I'm done!
My hair looks like I spent hours on it, and best of all, there is VOLUME!
My hair has a very hard time keeping curls. My hair wouldn't take to the curls with the headband no heat curls that was so popular a while back. And I was really not a fan of the mark I had on my forehead.
If I put enough hair spray in, the curls last all day. I have no weird marks. I can go out in public with my hair in a bun, not a weird Princess Lea-do. And best of all, I can put my hair in a bun during the day, and when I take it down, it still looks great!
So toss up your hair in a bun, and in a couple of hours you'll have amazing curls!
