Hair: Make it Work For You

Whenever I feel like I’m having a bad hair day, it’s usually because my newly-growing maternity hair has a mind of its own and is curling in very odd ways. It’s usually just one or two curls that are decidedly wrong. And, truly, they can affect my whole appearance. SO, on days when I want to overcome this problem, I simply whip out my 2-inch curling iron and round out those curls so that they flatter my face and aren’t so obnoxious. I have to remind myself: “Don’t let a few stray hairs boss you around today! Make them work for you!” It only takes 5 minutes and can change my whole day.

Just this week, it dawned on me that most women must have just two or three of these tricks that require minimal effort with maximum results.

‘Have any of your own?

    When I can’t get my hair to behave (which is most of the time!) I throw it up in a half twist with a little flippy action going on in the back. If I have time, I flat iron all of it, but that takes planning on my part (my hair has gotten SO long!), and I normally don’t give myself enough time. So up in a barrette it goes! I SOOOOO need a Lilla Rose flexi-clip!

    No good ideas. I used to wear a baseball cap. I’m in my later 30’s and cannot pull it off anymore. It usually ends up in an Olive Oil (think Popeyes g-friend, not the actual oil) ponytail. It will then reflect my droopy mood for the day because of the bad hair day. I’d love a curl–even one.

    The messy bun is the only hairdo i’ve ever perfected. It has always saved my day, and one doesn’t even need a comb to do it!
