In Which I Learn How to Fix My Own Hair


My name is Kristen. I am a grown woman. And I don't really know how to do my own hair. Last week, I visited Salon Acote, where my stylist for the evening, Melissa, helped my fine flat hair achieve bouncy waves. I decided to try her method yesterday morning, telling myself I would take no longer than five minutes (anything hair-related taking over five minutes is not realistic for me). So I set to work with a curling iron and some hairspray. 


Oh. My. God. Big news, ya'll! Apparently, you can fix your hair with a curling iron and hairspray! It's easy (ish). And, since I Aqua Net-ed the heck out of my hair, it looked amazing all day! Usually, whatever style I luck my way into is dead flat by the time outfit photos come around. I'm afraid it is beginner's luck...we shall see if I can re-create this lock look in the days to come...


And let's talk about the outfit for a bit, shall we? This is one of my classic favorites of mixing stripes and florals...er...paisley. "They" say that horizontal stripes do not help one's figure, but I love this striped skirt, purchased on sale last year from Mint Julep
