Chelsea and I were so lucky to stumble upon this wall. It was just hiding out in the middle of South Congress when we were on our way to brunch. I pulled over so fast and just plopped down on the striped bench while SXSWers walked past with their badges and giggled at us. I used to get so freaked out when people saw me taking outfit photos, but I’ve gotten to where it feels pretty natural as long as no one is asking to “help” or catcalling.
A few of you have been asking me lately how I get my hair curled like this. First, I never thought I would be on the receiving end of that question. Second, I do it with a straightener and I can’t tell you how. Not because I don’t want to be transparent, but because I literally have no idea how to explain it. I still do it wrong 60% of the time when I try and have to just give up and walk around with half-ish curly hair. After years of trying and trying (and burning all my fingers), I just sort of figured it out? It’s just like curling ribbon with scissors…but with hair and a straightener? This tutorial is pretty close to what I do if you’re interested!
What are y’all up to this weekend? I’m still coming down from my TxSC high and have about 7 posts in my drafts I want to work on for the coming weeks!
