Celebrate the beauty of curls in a buoyant how-to, manifesto, and curly girl support group all in one.
 

Say no to shampoo, unplug the dryer, and kiss frizz and bad hair days good-bye.

Fabulous dos for weddings and special occasions. How to trim your hair yourself, step-by-step. (Remember: It’s not what you take off; it’s what you leave on.)
