The Power of the Right Haircut

curl typesMy 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.

DevaCurl-300x125The 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!

Big Curls

Big curls are my go-to hairstyle when i want something cute and natural with a little hint of glam.

Achieving these curls is so much easier than it looks but will always turn heads and get you compliments. The way i like to get these curls is actually with my flat iron. Sound crazy? i’ll tell you why it isn’t – traditional curlers can leave your hair too curly. Personally, i’m not typically going for a Shirley Temple look … so the flat iron method is perfect.

Here’s how you do it:

  1. Heat up the flat iron – you want it hot, but don’t go too crazy. Singed hair is not pretty.
  2. Take a section of hair and place it in the flat iron (start at the top of the hair)
  3. Pull the flat iron down the section of hair; as you pull down, continually turn the flat iron (i like to spin under, but you can try either way)
