I drive in "pin curls". Judge me.

I don't know about you, but my hair is not worth a damn in the summertime! I have very straight corse hair that is uncontrollably  frizzy most of the time. (sigh) I have tried EVERY product known to woman from shine sprays to conditioning treatments with no prevail. So, this summer I have decided to say "to hell with it" and go for the "beachy look". After washing my hair I use Fredrik Fekkia mouse and then I let it air dry (my hair has been thanking me for that). When it's dry I curl large sections back away from my face with my Hot Tools 1 1/4 barrel curling iron (LOVE IT) and pin each curl in place with a bobbi-pin to cool. (I load it down with hairspray at this point) 

BUT, because my hair is crap (seriously) I leave the pins in until I absolutely have to take them out, as you can see from the picture above. When I take the pins out I flip my head upside down and do the whole rocker head banging thing a few times and "Poof!" beachy waves. 

**NOTE** While driving in curls or rollers be sure to wave at everyone that looks your way and smile really big. They will think you are nuts and it's just plain fun.
