Forgive the super weird look on America Ferrera's face, but I had to pull an image from a grainy YouTube video of last week's Ugly Betty episode to give you the visual of such hair perfection.
Here's the prob: I'm definitely 100% retarded when it comes to curling irons, rollers and any other tool that "curls". Chances are that I would lose a lot of hair in the process, people would get hurt, and Pantene's stock would plummet. I also think those giant velcro rollers (like Gretchen uses on "Real Housewives") are fab-yooouu-less, but I'm too chicken to try them.
I'm not completely at a loss - I'm actually quite skilled at styling my hair when it's short, mostly because it requires a straightener, aka a styling tool I can operate without breaking into a cold sweat. Exhibit A: one of my best short-hair days ever.
Me and my bf, Cait.
It should be noted that this was taken minutes before the
Spice Girls' reunion tour. Yeah, we're that awesome.
Please teach me your voodoo hair magic, oh stylers of Ugly Betty. Because I have at least another 2 inches of growth (read: four months) before I can successfully perform my Locks of Love donation, and walking around with an eternally unstyled ponytail really doesn't do my mop any justice. Le sigh.
