Self-described “beastly hair”
Lives in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada (which apparently has some hella extreme weather)
From Erica’s email, I do believe she is the owner of bipolar hair. Depending on the weather, her curls act completely differently, sometimes shiny and bouncy and other times, well, BLAH.
I think all of the wavy/curly gals out there will agree – at least, I know I do. What to do, what to do…
I really like Erica’s curls and her layering technique. Notice how her cheekbone-length layers keep the overall shape from looking like the dreaded triangle. I do think she could take about an inch or two off and have a darling wavy bob.
What about these options?
Option #1 would take a little of the length off and shorten her layers accordingly. It would be a fresh look for the summer season, which she could let air dry or use a curling iron (like the photo) to add defined curls here and there. Option #2 follows the same idea, but with the addition of bangs. (My only concern would be the humid Winnipeg summers. Serious Humidity + Bangs = Interesting.)
What do you all think?
