Beauty is fleeting

I’m thinking I should bring a hair curling tong with me wherever I go. (It used to be hairspray, for keeping the hair up throughout the day).

After I discovered the power of cute curls not so long ago, I now spend 30 minutes to curl my hair whenever I have time (Otherwise, I just leave it straight and go out.)

For variety, I might do something different, like curl then braid it.

On this particular day, I let a bit of fringe hang loose and gave it a little twirl, cos it’s cute that way. It’s a bit hard to see from the picture but it’s twirled two rounds.

It stayed nicely twirled for 30 minutes or so while I was in my room, finishing up my preparations.

But the moment I stepped out of home, it started to unwind. Mere minutes later, it became this:

This, despite tons of curling lotion and hairspray on it.

I think Singapore is too humid. My curls can stay in air-conditioned places but not in natural weather.

Next time, I think I need to bring the curling tong out and make curls only after I arrive at my destination. Assuming it’s an air-conditioned place. And it has a power socket for me to plug the tongs in. And there’s a nice big mirror for me to use.

But how dumb is that?

    Why don’t you want to curl ur hair permanently? Then all you need to leave on ur hair is scrunching lotion!

    @Sheylara: Not nearly as dumb as Yoi’s comment, hehe:P Anyways, ladies’ bags are well-known to contain anything and everything short of an aircraft carrier, so what’s wrong with curling tongs?:) Though I have to admit, all that effort for just 30 mins of curls doesn’t sound like a productive use of your time… aren’t you already busy enough as it is?

    @RN1209: Even though she carried a big bag, there are no more space in there. It is filled with
    – Usual ladies stuff, make up kits etc.
    – netbook + netbook accessories
    – phone
    – book
    – camera
    – all the Watson toiletries (she is aka Miss Watson remember?)

    and last but not least GOLD BARS!
