In my years of salon styling, music tours, film and photo shoots and the like; it seemed that there had always been one common thread that I’d encountered again and again. Women of curls battling with how to hide, diminish, or just plain do away with their naturally beautiful texture.
Let’s face it, we all want something that we don’t have. Curly girls wanna be straight! Straight girls are screaming, ” more curls!”. While fine textured ladies are crying…”I need volume!”, the thicker textured gals are begging “pleeeeze thin it out!”
So you walk into your appointment with your beauty consultant and say, ” I wanna look JUST like this!”
As you excitedly point to all of the photos you’ve downloaded of your favorite celeb. “Sure” they reply; and so the process begins… Highlights, lowlights, waxing, plucking, water bras, push-up bras, and on and on, until YOU finally disappear. And left to represent you is the image of this character that you and the beauty industry created.
Here are some “Quick- fix- to Cuteness” tips that every girl can use to get her gorgeous on!
