A SWEAR-BY HAIR TIP – 

The big coil hair ties are a lifesaver if you have thick hair which is not supported by thin hair ties!

A SMALL JOY

HAIR WASH ROUTINE

WHY DIZZIAK

NIGHTMARE HAIR STORY

Before my first homecoming dance, which was also my 16th birthday, my usual hairdresser didn’t know what to do with my hair and just kept adding more and more hairspray & gel! I basically had a big helmet of hair gel on my head! I had to go home and wash it all out and just ended up with my hair in a ponytail and was late for my date!
