Stick-straight hair is stylish … unless you have it. For example, Heather has naturally curly hair, which is gorgeous and full of volume and adorable. She hates it. She spends time straightening it pretty much every day. I have stick-straight hair. I would scalp my wife and steal her curls if I could. The grass is always greener and the hair is always more manageable on the other side. You have to love what you've got, though, so allow me to share with you some of the very best ways to add body to those stick-straight locks of yours.
