So, if you know me at all, I really hate styling my hair. I have a ton of it, it's super thick and just takes forever. I also like when my hair looks like I haven't done anything to it. The undone, but still some effort put into it is my ideal hair game.
I am sure y'all were getting sick of just seeing the same straight-ish look, without much change, so I have decided to take it upon myself to get a little more creative. Hello Pinterest.
In comes the curling iron. I don't claim to be a curling genius, or know exactly what I'm doing at all, but I do kind of love the look that happens when I take the 20 extra minutes to bump up the style factor. It helps out two-day-old hair too. (Like in these shots.)
A little secret hair secret, I took the clamp part of my 1 inch curling iron off so I don't make that line that more often than not decides to show up and ruin all my handy work. It's like a curling wand, but doesn't give that ringlet-type bounce.
Next stop, the half up top knot.
