Bringing Big Hair Back

I have a LOT of hair. Seriously, I have had hair stylists tell me this my whole life (often right before they charge me "extra" because of the extra work it takes to cut and dry my hair! Hmm..)

I call my hair "rebellious" because it is naturally thick and curly (and dark too, but we won't go there. hee hee), and I would like it to be straight, shiny, and blond. It can be pretty exhausting to get my hair sleek everyday, and then, with all the blowdrying, ironing and products I apply, my hair sometimes loses all its volume.

However, a few months ago I had a breakthrough. I saw a photo of one of my "style icons" Carrie Underwood, and I realized that the answer to my hair dilemmas might be lying in a set of tools that has been around forever...

I am bringing hot rollers back! I have started rolling my hair in the morning, and I think I found the solution for my hair. These conair rollers are for bigger waves, and so far I am loving them!


Also, using rollers rather than a hair straightener saves me time. I roll up my hair, and then my hands are free to do my makeup and get dressed. This morning I was out the door in record time, and nothin' beats that!

There are also great velcro rollers out by Vidal Sassoon called Sure Grip. They come with a clip attached so you can get ready fast. Once you put them into your hair blast them with your blow dryer to heat them up. Wait about 10 minutes for them to cool down and set. Take them out and you are gorgeous.

I am SO in favor of bringing back big hake....you know....the Suzanne Sugarbaker kind of big hair. Maybe we should start a FB page.

Carrie is fab. I think if I met Carrie in real life we would be BFFs! I totally agree about hot rollers, I use mine almost every day!
