isn’t a topic that I talk about often. My relationship with my hair is a bit of
a violent one. I have naturally dead-straight, thin hair and days when I
want it to do, well, something other than be dead-straight, thin hair
and it refuses I can get pretty upset. While I freely dye and cut it I have
never been one of those people that style their hair on a regular basis due to
the simple fact that I am a lazy Goth.

Annie curls, beachy waves, crimps, it can straighten curly hair or keep it
under control or create almost any kind of curl that you can imagine.

perms aren’t strictly care-free since they are curls and require special types
of combing and product to help the curls conform rather than frizz but that can
be taken care of right out of the shower.
curled hair extensions on my short straight hair since it looks quite natural
and takes less than a minute to clip into my hair. If greater length has been
something that you’ve wanted than this is a simple way but a myriad of styles
can easily be created by layering hair extension (sometimes pre-curled) over
hair-extensions to create thick, teased and amazing hair in a moderately simple
way. A negative to this is that real hair extensions (especially the amount it
would take to create a crazy nest of hair) may cost a lot depending on quality
of impeccable quality wigs can be quite pricey but they can also be a great way
of transforming or completing a look into something brand new. If you work or
go to a school with a strict dress code you can get the hair that you’ve always

say ‘night sets’ I don’t just mean rollers that are left in overnight (oh man,
how they hurt me) but any hair ‘trick’ that can be left in over night to create
