Soft and Wavy Curls

January 27, 2012

Are you all as addicted to Pinterest as I am? I should clarify that I’m addicted to looking at Pinterest and finding ideas. But since I’m slightly type-A, I find it hard to pull the trigger and actually ‘pin’ things for fear that my boards will become messy and disorganized. I suppose that’s all beside the point, since what I really want to talk about is hair.

Pinterest is, I’ve decided, most useful for two things: recipe organization and hair tutorials. You can find a hair tutorial on pretty much any style you’re seeking, although I have a sneaking suspicion that many of the tutorials make it look much easier than it actually is.

To date, my best find on the site has been this hair tutorial on how to create soft, wavy curls in your hair without looking too done-up. It comes from Katie of the blog Running On Happiness, and if you’ve never stumbled upon her amazing blog, I would urge you to immediately bop over and check it out. It’s not all that different from what I’ve done in the past with my curling iron, but she sneaks in a few insightful tips that have changed the way my hair gets its curl. I can’t say I’ve perfected the method, but I’m well on my way. And just in time for the weekend, when I actually wash my hair and put on makeup past 6 pm.

Happy Friday, all!

    Being a Type-A, I love the visual organization it provides. It’s useful but easy to get carried away. I’m guilty of spending way too much time on there.

    To keep your pinterest boards organized, but still be able to refer back to something you liked but not enough to pull the ‘pin it’ trigger….just ‘like’ it. That’s what I (in all my control-freak glory) have done and it has helped me come to terms.
