A Hairy Situation

wavy hair

Who wouldn’t love to have this hair, especially if the 27-inch waistline came with it? This gorgeous wavy hairstyle pin is based on a photo from WeHeartIt, which gave original credit to a Tumblr account that no longer exists and had moved to another Tumblr account, which was also closed and redirected to yet another abandoned Tumblr account, which sent me to this Tumblr account where I still couldn’t actually find this particular picture.

See how hard it is to find great hair these days?

That’s probably why this pin is so popular – everybody wants those elusive long, wavy tresses, and Pinterest makes the style seem so simple and quick. Just make lots of braids, run a flat iron over each one, spritz some hairspray, undo the braids and – instant ooh-la-la! Or is it?

not so wavy hair

This attempt by reader Julia turned out a little more ho-hum than va-va-voom. She says she followed the directions exactly, but maybe she didn’t try writhing topless in front of a white towel. I bet that helps.

wavy hair - nailed it

For more laughs, visit Robyn at Hollow Tree Ventures – no fancy hairstyle required. In fact, fanciness of almost any kind is discouraged. Going topless is optional.

  1. I have long hair, but I think it probably looks more like the second picture, most of the time.

    I was under the impression that an iron was something one used on clothes and the like. I should note that I’m not certain of this, as it has been decades since I witnessed one being employed.

    Hate to say it but your hair is way too short for that. My hair looks like the top picture unintentionally the day after I braid it. I wet down my hair and leave it in braids for the day and if I sleep with it like that when I take it out in the morning it really does look like the top pic. Now if I had the waist to go with that I’d be posting pics too.

    I have long brunette hair that I can get to look like the nude chick’s hair if I spray it with sea salt spray and towel dry it and then spray it again with dry shampoo and hair spray for volume. However, when I attempted the braiding and flat iron, my Chi gave me weird Tron-like zig-zags all over. It was almost like I crimped it, but not quite as cool.

    I love you for leaving this comment – thank you for the Tron reference, as well as the implication that there’s something less cool than crimping. ;)
