Alexa Chung freestyle hair has inspired me let go of trying to perfectly straighten or curl my hair. I've been "blessed" with that in-between, not straight, not curly, type of hair, which, at it's current short-to-mid length is impossible to leave natural.
But, I've changed my outlook and now I'm letting my air dry and then quickly taking a straightener to just the top layers. I've also decided to grow my hair out to more of a mid length, so those pesky short, frizzy, top layers weight themselves down.
I hate it when you tell your hair stylist your trying to grow your hair out and then he/she cuts impossibly short top layers! Why???
