Black & White & Hair

I wore this for a friend of mine's last night out in Miami. We went to dinner at Versailles, probably the most famous cuban restaurant in town, and then out to a local bar. I'm not a huge fan of Cuban food, but over the years I've found a few things I really like. I LOVE croquettas and Versailles didn't disappoint. The empanadas, yuca fries, and cilantro sauce were also great. My Cuban friend also said they have the best Cuban sandwich in town. 3 people at the table ordered the sandwich (myself included) but I wasn't wowed - it could just be that I had way too much ham already that day, lol. 
Anyway, I've been wearing my hair like this a lot recently and it is SO easy to do! The tool I use, the Conair You Curling Wand, was only $20 at Walmart. I think every hairstyle always depends on the type of hair you have, but I never thought of myself as someone who had hair that could hold a curl until I tried this tool. My hair stays curled for days -- until I wash my hair. I highly recommend trying it. Plus, it's only $20 so it's not a huge investment like some of these $100 tools on the market! On freshly washed and blow dried hair, I wrap about 1-2" sections of hair around the tool away from my face. I hold about 10-15 seconds for each strand. I curl my whole head, spray with hairspray, and then brush my hair through immediately as the hairspray is drying. I then use my hands to shape some of the curls and smooth out the hair and it turns out like this! Easy - and it only takes about 15 minutes (I don't have an extra 15 minutes during the week but I love it for weekends!).
