I can’t do it either.. And I’ve really tried a few times.  But then I say screw it.  It doesn’t work for me.  But other things do.  So I’m good with sticking with what works for me, and throwing what doesn’t to the side.

I’m the SAME way! lol, I love makeup, and I think I’m good at styling my hair, but I’ve never been able to blow dry my hair and have it look decent. I always end up with a frizzy mess…so don’t feel bad lol.

@s2bmrscook:  I blow out my hair, put in velcro rollers, then curl the very ends everytime I wash it. Sometimes, when I’m feeling lazy, I’ll just blow out my hair with two round brushes and leave a brush in the section while I start on the next (gives nice volume and body). 

People usually think I get regular blow outs but I only do the two times a year that I get my hair trimmed! The way that I learned to blow dry is by watching stylists do it. Everyone’s hair is different, and if you observe how your stylist does your hair (how the section it, what size brush they use, which why they point the dryer nozzle, etc), you can probably learn to blow out your own locks without getting frustrated.

If you have a cheap blowout bar in your city, you can schedule an appointment and just get your hair washed and blown out for like $30-40. The stylists there like blow dry hair day in and day out, so they can give you some great pointers. This is how I learned to style my hair.

Umm… All of it.

Growing up, my parents didn’t let me wear make-up. They said “Pretty girls don’t need make up” (Best parenting fail ever: They told my sister SHE was allowed to wear make up. When I objected they said “Well, she doesn’t look like you!” Shitty parenting at its best!)

So I just never learned. I can put on taupe shadow and mascara. That’s IT.

@s2bmrscook:  Velcro rollers are great because if you don’t expertly blow dry your hair, they’ll still set some body and movement in your hair. You can just blow dry with a paddle brush and wrap sections in rollers. It’ll look just like you used a big round brush when they come out.
