Emphasis on the quick – This look only took a few minutes to create!

What I loved about this look was how easy it was to create – I’m not big on complicated or time-consuming beauty routines so something like this is a breeze for me to do on my own when I’m getting ready for work or heading out for the evening.

Tell me – Do YOU prefer your hair straight or curly?

Short Hair Tutorial: Flat Iron Waves

Since getting my hair cut, I’ve been trying to acclimate to styling the new length. My traditional look is hair pulled back into a bun, but it’s actually too short for that right now.

What I’ve learned about this shorter length is that it’s all about the tools and products. I tend to appreciate the no-muss, no-fuss approach to hair and beauty, so having an expert like Klaudia available to educate me has been invaluable. And since I know I’m not the only one who appreciates a good short hair tutorial, we decided to document the process to share with you!
