the art of hair straightening

Sometimes my curly hair gets out of control. 
And so I decide to straighten it. 

It starts out with big crazy curls...

And after I brush it out, I tend to resemble Frankenstein's wife. Just a bit...

And after over an hour of straightening, it ends up like this...

Straight as a stick and about 6 inches longer.

Awesome. That second picture is crazy awesome. Have you ever seen the Friends episode when they go to the Bahamas and Monica has humidity issues. The second picture reminds me of that.

Your hair is beautiful. Both ways.

Okay, girl. What's your secret?! It's funny, I was talking to a coworker/friend about straightening my hair this weekend, and she'd love for me to do it... but I've never attempted it on my own! :)

Also, according to my mom, I have boobs. And cleavage! It's been a good night. LOL

I love it- I have hair like yours but you have more of it.

My daughter has us both beat, she has really go some hair. I dread the day she decided I need to straighten it for her.


I like your straight and sleek, it is sexy but the wild curls are great and more fun looking (I say this after just finishing blowing my out straight go figure).
