Lazy Girl's Guide to Beachy Waves
At my last gourmet dinner night, my friends actually asked me how I got my hair wavy. (That is like people asking me for cooking advice or fashion tips!) Anyway, I told them I would do a how-to post on my blog. My blogging friend Christie does a how-to series on her blog called How-To Tuesday and I'm joining today.
Step 1. Put whatever product you can find into damp hair. Today I used some dry shampoo, mouse and my kids leave-in swim conditioner. Just dirty up your hair a bit.
Step 2. Blow dry your hair. It doesn't have to be totally straight. In fact, this is my favorite hair style for when you get out of the shower and have to lie down on your bed for just a moment and wake up an hour later with your hair completely jacked.
Step 3. Heat up your hot rollers. Yes, hot rollers are totally 80s. I don't care. I saw Gretchen using them on the Real Housewives of the OC and she has good hair. If you don't have hot rollers, get yourself down to Ulta and buy some with a coupon. They are about 20 bucks.
Step 4. Wrap your hair around the roller from the root first. Don't start at the bottom and roll up like you used to do. Put the clip over the hair. Work all the way around your head. This step takes about five minutes.
Step 5. Put your make-up on or go make your kids lunch while the rollers are working their magic. Yes, I said lunch. I never get ready before noon. (Gotta hit the gym in the morning!)
Step 6. Unroll the rollers, hair spray the bejeebies out of it, toss it around and you're on your way!
Special thanks to my seven year old for taking the pictures. I'm too lazy to crop them. I told him I needed him to come in the bathroom and take some pictures of me and he looked really scared until I told him they were going to be pictures of my hair.
