An interesting thing has started happening with hair this summer....we're going straight again! I think the shag cut and shorter bobs of the Spring really has played into this. These aren't really cuts that handle artificial curls well, unless you like a slightly less streamlined look (I do, but that's me).
When a shag or short bob cut has curls added, either with a flat iron or curling iron, it tends to add more "flips" to the bottom of the hair, rather than being sleeker and straighter. To combat that, at first, we weren't curling the hair as much. Just a little bend in the middle and then clamp all those ends with a flat iron and try to force them to go straight. But let's face it....that's way too time consuming in the midst of summer when you're traveling here and there and trying to beat the exhausting summer heat. So, straight is easier for a lot of people.
Anyway, that's why I think it's a trend again...check out these photos for a little hair inspiration!
