Wavy Beach Hair (The Cheater Version)
Here's the irony in throwing up a post about a hair gizmo — I've gone low-maintenance. As in, I've been skipping the blow dryer.
This is a huge deal. I'm typically quite high maintenance when it comes to my appearance. Not that I look it, but I spent a fair amount of time on the whole hair-and-makeup routine. And, I especially spend a ton o' time under my tourmaline dryer.
We're joined at the hip, or at least the follicles. I love that dryer dearly.
But, air drying saves me from spending a good half hour underneath the thing. Plus, without that loud noise, I can hear the other loud noises (read: children) that need attention and fast because something gets broken or catches on fire or both.
Sometimes — only sometimes — my hair actually looks better au naturel. But, because nothing can be completely easy, my hair is usually half wavy and half not. On those days when that bugs me, I whip out the Tigi Bedhead
Deep Waver ($29.99). It is pretty darn cool.
That triple barrel action presses waves into the uncooperative sections but doesn't make hair look as done as a single-barrel curling iron does. The result is loose, easy waves that look pretty natural.
And, if I play my cards right, I don't even have to do my hair the next day.
