For one night only ...

... I have straight hair! LOL

I went to the 'salon' at the local college yesterday to have my hair coloured - fab value, and to prove it most of the people there were pensioners having a perm or a shampoo and set :o) Basically, I think the costs involved are only to cover materials and the 'leccy.

My trainee, Carly, did a pretty good job on the colouring and asked if I wanted my hair dried straight. I have never ever had my hair straightened, and I thought it might be fun to see if it was actually possible.

It was, but it took 45 minutes of hard work ...






I like it, especially the shine my hair has, but it doesn't really feel 'me' - and I certainly wouldn't want to spend the time necessary to maintain the style like this!

This morning, the front bit is definitely trying to kink - you can't keep a good curl down :o)

Ohhh you look awesome! I do not know your curly look (I got here via Marlies's, from Belgium, blog. Great exchange you sent her! Well done!) but you look really terrific with straight hair.
I am a curly hair girl too, and you are definetly right: you can't keep a good curl down! Hahahahaha... Love your color too!

I love the straight hair look! But as one whose gone the opposite way (straight to curly), I agree that low maintenance, go with what you've got, is the best way to go.

Your hair really suits you straight and it's nice to see people supporting their local college...my DD is on level 1 hairdressing course at our college. You've got some lovely wip's and finishes too!
