It's been many decades since I used the daily blow dyer/curling iron combo to create my big 80s hair. But for an event last week, I thought it would be fun to spiff up my hairdo with some curl.

I bought a 1-1/4″ Conair Infinitipro and did my best to create a nice hairstyle for an event I was attending.

This last-minute, impromptu styling effort may not have been the best idea I had all week.

Apparently I need more practice! The curling iron was fine. My strategy was out-of-date. I'll keep trying!
