Leah Thompson's Curly Hair Journey

Discover how singer and songwriter Leah cares for her curls.

What is the best thing about being curly?

It’s so versatile! You certainly don’t need one of those silly foam bun makers to get a perfect bun, and it’s easy to create “dressy” updos. In the summertime, you can jet out the door with wet waves, while everyone else is still fussing with flat irons, blow dryers, curling irons, and hairspray. You can quickly throw your hair up into a French twist with something like a pencil and it will stay put! Curly hair has amazing body and volume that you don’t have to work to get. And it has personality – it’s bold, quirky, and free.

How do you think having curly hair impacts your life?

You can’t blend in and go unnoticed with really curly hair! As long as you’re a law-abiding citizen, this shouldn’t be too much of a problem.

What would you tell others to encourage them to embrace their curls?

Your curls make you unique! You save a bundle on salon trips, and you can get more beauty sleep as you don’t have to wake up at the crack of dawn to iron and style your hair. Curls are also environmentally friendly: you don’t have to wash your hair every day (and shouldn’t, as curls require more moisture) and you don’t have to use heat styling tools. Be free and go with the flow!
