Since our pre-school days, we are taught that our hair is our crowning glory. We need to fix and comb it everyday as this is one of the factors that makes us presentable for the outside world. In addition, healthy hair is also a sign of a healthy body. So we are also taught that having the right products and methods of taking care of our hair would also be an important thing, especially when growing up. But what we aren’t really taught is how hard it is to do day by day thinking of the curly hairstyles and makeups you can create (at least not if you didn’t get classes and courses related to grooming). Seriously, the struggle is real.
Of course we could just let our hair hang loose, but what is the fun in that? If our hair is one of the factors that we get to look presentable, then it could also be a factor that would help increase our self-esteem. I’m not even assuming on this though it may not be a general thing. But when I know I have a great hair style and I know I’m rocking it, I feel much, much better. Now try looking back on bad hair days and how it could actually ruin the day for you.
Now back to the struggle of hairstyles everyday for the next 365 days…or we can subtract the days when we don’t really need to get out of the house and those days when ponytails are more of a necessity than a style; there would still be enough days to make us feel like we need to do more for ourselves; to make us look and feel elegant and beautiful and classy. There may or may not be enough YouTube tutorials on easy hairstyles that we can actually do but here is one trick I’ve learned in my years of struggle: curling irons and hair irons would be lifesavers.
Curls, curls and curly hairstyle
Curls would be the easiest way to feel good and look good. If you’ve got curling irons, the process would last 15-30 minutes to do the curly hairstyles depending on the style of the curls and the length of your hair. It works for casual school days to Friday party nights. It works for summer beach outings to proms and holiday reunions. It’s very versatile and works with almost any kind of look.
So here are a few looks to prove curls are forever.
Again, short hair isn’t a reason not to get curls. After curling, tease it a bit for more volume and for a cooler effect as well.
