So here’s a major beauty confession: I am actually really bad at curling my hair. It’s funny because I’ve actually gotten quite good at updos and fancy braids, which definitely require a lot more skill and patience. But the simple Olivia Palermo wave (she’s one of my ultimate hair crushes, just in case you were curious) has always eluded me. Not a ringlet, but definitely not something you get from just using salt spray and air drying—I’ve never been able to get the look quite right. For the longest time, I thought maybe I could get this effortless tousle with a flat iron, and many women do, but I’m just not that good at it. For me, the answer is a clipless curling iron.
We know celebrities have access to the best stylists, makeup artists, and personal trainers in the business, which is why they always look so much more glamourous than the rest of us. It’s not surprising given that looking good is a huge part of most of their jobs. It is surprising when we hear about celebrities choosing the inexpensive option or doing their hair themselves. I know if I had a choice between doing my hair myself and having it look eh, and having a professional do it, I’d choose the professional every time.
