How fun was yesterday?! Isn’t Jacquelyn awesome? I’m so excited to hear her take on style + capsule wardrobes over the next few weeks. And get excited because tomorrow you’ll get to meet one more spectacular lady!
So a few of you have been asking how I style my hair and I thought I’d share this tutorial from the Beauty Department with you — it taught me everything I know. For some reason though, my hair holds curl better with a straightener, so I use that instead of a curling iron.
Truthfully, styling my shorter hair has come with a pretty steep learning curve. Meaning I still have those days when I finish styling my hair, look in the mirror, and just shake my head because it so didn’t work.
But, I’m okay with that because figuring it out takes time. I think in the past, I’d get a haircut, fail at styling it for a week or two, and then just blame it on something other than my lack of trying — like, “My hair just won’t do that.” or “This cut just doesn’t work for me.”
The truth is, if I just kept practicing + trying, I might get it down one day — or at least learn something along the way.
Mastery takes time. And the things that seem effortless tend to take the longest.
I find it so silly + hilarious + awesome that this tiny little “lesson” on hair … applies to life too. Maybe that’s why I like style so much — it’s a non-threatening way to acknowledge + face some of my deeper stuff. Do you ever feel that way too?
