5 Compact Hot Hair Tools For The Traveling Baddie
Ok, so you finally booked the flights and accommodations for your upcoming trip. The next thing on the agenda for most Black women is planning the perfect hairstyle for your trip. If you’re going on a tropical vacation with lots of time spent on the beach or the pool, braids or faux locs are the go-to styles. If you’re heading to a winter escape to Paris or another cosmopolitan city, a 30-inch buss down may be in order.
Regardless of where you’re traveling, if your hair looks good, you will feel good. Part of keeping up with your travel hairstyle is to pack the right tools. Some hair tools can be bulky and heavy and take up unnecessary room, so we’re prioritizing traveling with only the best this year.
