“My hair was straight until I hit puberty, and then it went ‘electric,’ ” says the stay-at-home mom of two. “I tried to control it with products throughout my twenties and managed to make it wavy. But nine years ago, when I started having kids, my curls returned, frizzier than ever. My hair curls in different ways in different spots, so although it blows out in 15 minutes, it’s generally easier to just throw it in a ponytail. People with curls like mine need to do and redo our hair all day: We put it up, take it down, add more product, and repeat.”

Her goal: a cut that she can wear curly daily.
