Do you have a dream hairstyle? One that you have always imagined yourself with, but have never been able to achieve it? Sometimes you're sooo close to it, then *BAM!* the stupid hairstylist trimmed it too much or burned part of it during rebonding; OR you ruined it yourself by doing something equally stupid- like, streaking with Fem Bleach or spontaneously giving yourself a "razor cut" with some puraana blunt scissors and you ended up with high-low hair (one side shorter than the other). And then it's only just a dream, again.
My dream hairstyle is a longer (on the sides), pouffier (at the roots), shinier, evenly colored (dark roots make them look flatter) version of what I have here. Dreamy, romantic, cascading waves.....like cashmere between his fingertips.....yeah yeah.
But a dream hairstyle is like everything else in life. If you want it, you have to make an effort and get it yourself!
So.... I got myself a curling iron. I've always wanted one! I had a hard time trying to decide between Babyliss Volume Waves Tong & TRESemme Salon Professional Volume Curls Tong . In the end, I went with my gut. By that, I mean I went with the more established hair styling tools brand.
Barrel Size- 38mm (1 and 1/2 half inch)
Plates- Nano Titanium Ceramic
Heat Settings- 155°, 170°,185°, 200° C.
This was just a trial, and my 1st time using it. I will come back let you know if it makes me happy, how to use it, products etc, another time. But first impression was quite good, considering I didn't really make an effort. The curls started to flatten at night, but the waves & volume were still there the next day.
I clicked the pic above before getting dressed. The green dress made everything look different from what they are- my face too white, lipstick too fuchsia. This is how the lipstick should look.
Hair ~ L'Oreal Extaordinary Oil on the tips before curling, L'Oreal Elnett Hairspray after curling.

Of course you're not a normal person if you're holding a curling tong, and you don't do this...........
People with bad voices are usually the ones who look too sincere when they sing... haha!
That song's intro gives me goosebumps. It's from Bollywood movie Rockstar. I watched it recently and it made me laugh so much. Very nice.
Have a fun weekend! I'm going grocery shopping today, hope I'll find my dream hair color there!
Okies, bye bye.....
