The Right Tools

As particular as I am about using the right tools in home improvement, I'm learning the right tools for every job are worth it.

I usually neglect getting my hair cut until it's too long and heavy for a basic claw clip. Then I make a trip to my trusted (but underutilized) stylist and ask her to work her considerable skill on my messy mane. This time, I mentioned that I'm long overdue for a new hairbrush and blowdryer, so she offered her expert opinion. She was able to give me quite a few pointers on size, bristles, wattage, attachments, everything I needed to know. She even demonstrated the best techniques, too. Not that I can put them into practice as well as she can, but it's worth a shot.

Her styling left my hair looking great for three days! I usually can't even get out of the bathroom before my roots are going flat, curl is falling out, kinks are working their way in, etc. She barely used any product, my hair smelled great, never got greasy, and didn't needed a brush or comb in the morning. Even Jeff kept commenting on how nice my hair looked. I guess going with pro advice, quality products, and topnotch equipment applies to hair renovation as much as home renovation!

It may not look like much, but this is the end of day two and my hair is still curled under! I was certainly pleased.


  1. Oooh...I love it! I just think that's a great picture of you! I love the layers!

  2. Thanks, Anna. I know the grass is always greener on the other side, but what I wouldn't give for a little more natural curl and body like your family has!
