That Farrah Fawcett hair… it is all the rage right now…
That is not Farrah Fawcett hair.
That is I’ve not washed my hair in three days GIMME A HAT hair.
This is is what I’m talking about:
1) I, in no way, think I look like Farrah Fawcett.
2) I realize the lighting in my bathroom is not ideal for video, BUT THE TIME WAS IDEAL THERE’S NO TIME LIKE NOW and the kids were distracted, so…
3) I forgot what the third point was.
14) I am not mathy.
So there you have it!
In summary… the curling iron turns AWAY FROM THE FACE… Don’t forget about good posture – it’s a great time to practice!
You may also want to eat some good protein and some complex carbs before styling your hair like Farrah…
Of course, you’ll also need coffee coffee coffee, some water and… CAREFUL THAT IRON GET’S HOT!!!
I used a large iron (probably a 2 or 3 inch barrel), but you can use a smaller barrel and still get big curls. Just grab a larger chunk of hair.
I do not use a wand. I know a lot of folks have great success with the wand. I really wish I didn’t burn myself nearly to death the few times I’ve tried. While the “away from the face” curl affect is similar… it’s a bit different. And I like it. But I like no maiming myself even more.
Have you ever used a wand? What do you prefer to use?
