Thats exactly how it looked to me. I know, because before I found this wonderful NC site, thats what I used to do, and I would wonder why on earth my hair was so bad. I get frustrated with many makeover shows (tho I still absolutely love to watch them) because 99% of the time they will make a curly girl straight.
Once I remember on 'What Not To Wear" they had a girl with beautiful curly hair and after he cut it he put mousse in it and dried it with a diffuser. It looked gorgeous when he was done. But honestly thats one of the few times I can remember when shows left curly hair alone. Kuddo's to nick on what not to wear!
