What do you love about your curly hair? Anything you don't love?
"I love that my morning routine is pretty simple. I don't love that wearing hats, even loose berets, in the winter squashes my curls."
Tell us about your hair-care routine. How do you take care of and style your curls?
"The cut is key, and maintaining it. Terra at Mudhoney on Sullivan Street gives me a great cut. I see her every eight weeks. I recently started using Bumble and bumble Surf Shampoo and Conditioner, and I love the texture they create. I wet and condition my hair most days and use shampoo maybe every other week so that the styling products build up in my hair and there's minimal frizz. After showering, I use a dab of DevaCurl Light Defining Gel and work it through the ends and then air-dry. If I ever need a touch-up during the day, I'll use a bit of whatever product I happen to have. I like Kiehl's Creme with Silk Groom, Bumble and bumble Hairdresser's Invisible Oil, and sea-salt spray."
Do you ever wear your hair straight?
"I don't enjoy the process of blowdrying it straight myself so I only wear it straight after haircuts. The blowout usually lasts for a couple of days. It's fun for a change every now and then, but I prefer the curls."
How does your hair influence the rest of your look?
"My hair was quite long for years. I cut it about a year ago, which felt wonderful once I got over the shock. After the cut, my look was so changed that it felt like I had a new wardrobe, though that didn't keep me from shopping. With my shorter, curlier hair, I began wearing a darker palette with more solids and some abstract and animal prints. When I had longer hair with looser curls, my look was a little more romantic with floral prints and a lot more pink.
What is your best advice for curly girls?
"Air-dry whenever possible. Embrace your curls and let them go wild."
