Apparently, I can no longer be bothered to spend more than 60 seconds doing my hair because I have bigger, badder, more ferocious beauty fires to put out, like FREAKING BLACK CAT EYELINER THAT IS THE BANE OF MY EXISTENCE.
This morning was rough, man. I couldn’t get the outer wings to line up evenly (for my makeup here), and then the liner just kept getting thicker and thicker… *shakes head*
Silly me for thinking, “Oh, this will only take five minutes.”
And don’t even get me started on the red lipstick. I mean, when a big red lipstick splotch ends up under your right eye and you have no idea how it got there, the makeup gods are telling you in their own twisted way that sh*t has officially hit the fan today.
Since I was running epically late, I had to ditch my original hair plan of curling my hair with the 1-inch Conair curling iron I picked up at Ulta a couple weeks ago. I needed something quicker, so I went with wild, messy waves using the Shu Uemura Art of Hair Texture Wave Dry Finishing Spray ($38).
It’s an aerosol, and kind of like Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray, but with softer hold.
For a tousled, textured look, I spray it on dry hair and then scrunch with my fingers. You can also use it to perk up second day hair or coax out messy, beachy waves.
When I’m wearing my hair wavy and wild, Art of Hair Texture Wave Dry Finishing Spray takes it from “Did she just roll out of bed?” to purposefully tousled.
It makes getting soft, lazy waves about as easy as possible, although I do have to say that Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray is still my number one. I prefer the bigger volume, especially at the roots, and the floral scent (Shu Uemura Art of Hair smells a little like ’80s hairspray to me).
Both are also pretty expensive. A 6.8-oz. bottle of Shu Uemura Art of Hair Texture Wave is $38, while an 8.5-oz. bottle of Oribe Dry Texturing Spray will set you back $42.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. Here’s a list of some recent hair posts, if you’re looking to change your coif. It’s weird seeing how my hair has changed over the past few months…
