Curls are for girls

Do you often walk down the street and wonder how guys get their golden locks looking good? Then wish yours were as good as theirs? Well, they are probably using hair straighteners.

hair-straightenersThere are five people living in my uni house, of which three of us own hair straighteners. As for the other two, one gets a haircut every four days so his hair is immaculate and trim, and the other one… well there are no excuses for his mullet.

I don’t think men should use them to be honest, unless you‘ve got long hair. You shouldn’t, nor should Chris,” says Ed Poulter, as I tell him what I am writing about right now.

The fact is, Edward, a lot of blokes do use them in this day and age.

Last summer I decided growing my hair long was a great idea, which in hindsight, it really wasn’t (as many people reminded me on a daily basis).

But without the use of hair straighteners, it would have been a total disaster. It took me from this…

To this…

Okay, now this was an exaggeration, but the point is that hair straighteners only help to enhance the outlook of your hair.

When I first went to uni, I started using my mates hair straighteners, though we often called them by their codename. “Can I borrow your ‘weights’?”pinkweights1

I think people probably saw through this codename, so to spare more embarrassment, I plucked up the courage to get my own so I could do it on the sly in my bedroom… but then immediately bottled it so a friend had to buy them for me.

Once I had them, along with some TRESemmé hair protection spray, I never turned them off. Sometimes, literally, as the hole in my carpet back home shows (sorry Dad).

Personally, it leaves my often unkempt hair looking straight and exactly how I like it” – Nick Brough.

Well said Nick.

I was told as a child that eating your crusts gives you curly hair. Scientifically, I don’t know if this is true, but kids are gullible. However, it may well explain why my hair curls as it gets longer. Instead of getting a hair cut every week, why now just straighten it out? Buying straighteners seemed like a small expense next to continuous cutting.

One other thing I was told was…

Curls are for girls.

Therefore, use hair straighteners. The results will make you feel like this guy:
