On Hair and the Weather

 Dress: H&M. Shoes: Target. Necklace: Forever 21. Earrings: vintage.

My hair is stubborn sometimes.  Naturally, it's straight to around my ears, and then has just this kind of wavy poof at the end.  I usually have to either straighten or curl it for it to look decent.  It stays straight pretty well, but more often then not, it won't hold a curl no matter how hard I try.  When it was longer, I could twist it while I was blowing it dry and it would get these kid of ringlets at the end (if you're curious, you can see them pretty well in the first picture here.), but now that it's short, that doesn't work.  Anyway, because it's stubborn with heat-made curls, I like to experiment with heat-free curling techniques.

The other night, I decided to try rag curling.  Problem was, I put the curls in when my hair was still reasonably damp, so when I took them out in the morning and fingered through them, my hair only came to my chin and stuck out about twice the width of my head.  So what did I decide to do with a head full of messy, super tight curls?  I put them in a mound on the back of my head, of course.

Also, on a non-hair related note, this weather is crazy.  Getting back to school from New York really threw me off.  It was actually pretty chilly for most of the trip, so the transition from jackets over cardigans over long sleeved shirts to being too warm in a lightweight dress is a bit jarring.  Spring is coming in at full force, and it's gonna take some getting used to. 


  1. My hair can't hold anything I do to it, or if it does it somehow manages to turn it to frizz by the end of the day. The way you styled your rag curls looks super cute :)

    1. I know how you feel with frizz, especially if it's humid; once the humidity sets in, there's basically no hope!
      Thanks so much!
