Last Monday evening I attended a dinner at Jack’s Wife Freda celebrating all the Aquarius girls among my high school friends (myself included). We braved the cold, wet weather to enjoy a feast of Fried Zucchini Chips, Roasted Cauliflower, Salt & Pepper Eggplant, Bloody Mary Moules Frites, Hand-Cut Fries, Peri-Peri Chicken, Portuguese Skirt Steak, Whole Branzino and of course some sweets: Flourless Chipotle Chocolate Cake and some sort of ridiculously delicious caramel dessert. I could go on and on about the food. It was quite tasty. And the restaurant’s ambiance is adorable. But this post is about hair.

Upon arrival at Jack’s all my dining companions complimented my hairstyle. Did I just get a haircut? How did I style my hair? In reality I had just come from work, so I hadn’t done much. That’s right, enviable waves don’t necessarily require much effort. Here’s the lazy girl’s guide to waves, and some pointers for keeping your coif under control when the weather is not cooperating…
If you have shoestring fries hair like me, first blow-dry it straight. Next, wrap your hair into a high bun and secure with an elastic. Sleep on it. Gently remove hair elastic and… voila!
If going out and about in horrid weather, return hair to the bun position and cover with a cap. Upon arrival at the restaurant, work, wherever, retreat to the ladies’ room to remove your hat and shake out any hat hair flatness. You can also use a dry shampoo to boost volume. As I’ve mentioned before, this is my fave, and Ricky's carries a travel-sized spray!
