I get asked quite a lot about my hair when I wear it this way, and most people are shocked to hear I do it myself.

Despite the fact that I’m the worst at getting up in the morning, there’s nothing I love more than trying out old Hollywood hairstyles that are anything but quick and easy (though I’m sure with practice I will find a way--it’s in my nature!). Sitting at home with all the time in the world to curl my hair every which way to achieve that ideal Marilyn bob is a luxury I hold dear whenever I get the chance.

This hair can even be slept in and stays for a few days!
