My whole life I’ve struggled with finding the right combination of products for my hair. Having naturally wavy hair, I went through the horrors of gel and hairspray, tried mousse and creams, and while some where better than others, I just couldn’t get it quite right. That is until my co-worker told me that his wife does a haircut specifically for those with curly/wavy hair. She went through special training for it and everything. I’d never heard of such a thing! I booked an appointment right away.
The style of cut was called a DevaCurl cut. The stylist cuts your hair dry because as all my curly-haired ladies know, your hair changes length and texture dramatically when going from wet to dry. As she did the haircut, she also gave me tips and advice on how I should be caring for and styling my hair. I also left with DevaCurl hair products. And, WOW! My hair went from wavy to full and curly. The transformation was amazing, it was like she had unleashed the full potential of my hair in one haircut. My hair has never been this curly and beautiful.
My advice to all Modern Martha’s, find a cut and stylist that is the best fit for your hair type and face. You will not regret it, it’s life changing!

Today’s image begs the question, one year from now what will you wish you had started today? Two of my goals for this year were to learn to sew and to re-learn French. I know without a doubt, a year from today I will wish I had started earlier. So I will. Today, I signed up for a beginner’s sewing class at a local fabric store, and I downloaded the Duolingo app to help me work on my French.
What about you?
In honor of Throwback Thursday, I’m going to share a photo of my 4 yr old Lab Mix back when he was about 6 months old. He’d gotten his first bath that day and we were doing a little modeling shoot. Hope you enjoy!
