How To Tuesday: No Fuss, No Muss Curls

poodle beach wavesLet’s be serious, this summer’s humidity has made poker straight hair a futile effort.  I tried this past week- left the house with hair that was sleek and sexy, twenty minutes later it was just crazy and kinky.  (Thank goodness for a quick fishtail braid).  Needless to say, this calls for an alternate hairstyle and unfussy curls are just the ticket.  Long gone are the days of pageant curls and Shirley Temple ringlets.  The modern take on curls is no fuss, no muss.  In this week’s episode, I’ll show you how to achieve the look with three straightforward methods (pun intended).

Editor’s note:  Yes, I’m an a-hole who kept referring to the Sultra Bombshell as the “Sulta” Bombshell.  Blame it on the humidity. xx
