It took me a very long time to accept my hair the way it is. As a teenage girl I envied all the girls with their neat and straight hair and felt like someone who wasn’t able to get her hair under control. Slowly, slowly and after a lot of straightening experiments I realized that it is better to make the best of what you have and not try to force something that you simply don’t have. So I started to accept my curly hair and find the right treatment and products for it. However, from time to time I like to spice things up and have a little change. I am absolutely able to straighten my hair with a straightener, but one thing I simply cannot manage is to get 1) loads of volume and 2) big wavy curls. So when Aveda took me and a couple of other international bloggers last weekend to the Lepri Salon and Spa in Milan, I directly knew which styling I’ll be aiming for. After a relaxing head and shoulders massage, as well as a quick spiritual scenting session, Francesco (lol I actually don’t remember his name but let’s just give him this typical Italian name) started turning my hair into a Victoria-Secret-like voluminous mane. He told me that due to my long and delicate hair structure it is pretty difficult to create this kind of volume … but there is nothing he couldn’t fix with loads of hairspray ;)
The result really turned out amazing – just the way I wanted it! Plus I really enjoyed the process of getting there, because I simply had the feeling that I can trust him and his work. Even on the second day, my hair was still pretty nice and I actually was sad to wash it and get back to my supercurls. I liked it so much, that I might try it out myself one time, even though it will probably not turn out as great.
