There are times when perseverance, stubbornness, and downright pigheadedness will serve me well, and there are times when it might make me burn all my hair off.
For some boneheaded reason, I’ve been obsessed with trying to curl/wave my hair with a straightening iron, because it looks so easy. Never mind I have a curling wand that works great.
No, these aren’t the amazing results of the straightening iron, This is the curling wand. The results with the straightening iron were terrible, seriously I-can’t-leave-the-house-looking-like-this, no-photo-evidence-because-there’s-no-way-in-hell-anyone-is-seeing-me-like-this terrible. I can’t get the hang of it and it drives me nuts. But why am I trying so hard when I already have a tool that works?
At least this time I had enough sense to stop while I was ahead, while I still had hair on my head, that is. I’ll have to file this technique under the heading “I can’t do it, but that’s ok.” The perfectionist in me is struggling with the “that’s ok” part, but really, that’s ok.
