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

Setting the Mood: Such a Beach.

beachy hairWith temperatures upwards of ninety, It’s been nearly impossible to keep hair frizz free, let alone poker straight.  The mere thought of standing in a tiny bathroom with a blowdryer fighting against my natural curl pattern is enough to have me contemplating pulling a Demi a la GI Jane.  Seeing as I do not have the bone structure to pull off a buzz cut, I have to deal with my tempestuous tresses in another fashion.  I’d like to go ahead and thank the Olsens for making crazy, messy, hair en vogue.  I’d then like to give myself a little pat on the back for keeping the messy hair momentum going.  Summer is the perfect time to let your hair go wild, much like your weekends.  Should you not be freshly emerging from the sea like a golden goddess, there are luckily a few tools that will give you the look of sea salted, windblown mermaid hair.
