How Have I Been Styling My New DevaCut Hair? Take 1

It’s been about a month (give or take a few days) since I’ve had my first DevaCut transformation.

So, what have I been doing with this hair?

Absolutely nothing.

LOL seriously. Not only have I been on a “I don’t care for doing anything to my hair” kind of mood, I’ve just not been able to totally recreate the exact look as on the day it was cut.

Therefore, laziness kind of won out. It’s only been a month though.

PuffCuff Controlled

One way I have worn my curls out is simply pulled back and secured with a large (the Original) PuffCuff. It’s a bit frizzy here thanks to all the humidity we are experiencing on the East Coast but I still managed to maintain some definition.

The PuffCuff is one of my favorite accessories because it makes fine hair look fuller. It’s able to secure all of your hair rather full or not. Whatever hair you have is loosely but securely held so that it falls in whatever way you like.

Buns have always been a staple hairstyle for me. I gravitate toward them when I’m feeling lazy and when I just want to protective style. Coincidentally, I’m heavily wanting to protective style because honestly I just want my length back.

So, I’ve settled on pulling this DevaCut hair back into a sleek bun and sometimes throwing in a side twist or braid.

That’s pretty much it. I don’t like to manipulate my fine strands very much because they are prone to breaking with too much handling.

Why Did I Bother to Get a DevaCut?

Good question!

I think part of it was I was right in the thralls of summer and my wash and go styles were just not falling right. I got the DevaCut at the end of the summer when I probably should have gotten it at the beginning of summer.

Typically, the wash and go is a staple hairstyle for me in the summer; not so much in the fall. My bad. I probably should have done it sooner.

At any rate, I don’t want to let this beautiful cut go completely to waste while growing in. The weather is pretty warm here in New York so I’m going to start doing wash and go’s again for the next few weeks so I’ll actually put some effort into styling.

With that in mind, I’ll be back sharing some actual styles of my hair out in it’s DevaCut state. Stay tuned 😉
