I got some beach wavy hair in New York! I stopped by the Beachwaver x Summer Water x Jiggy Pop-up a few weeks ago, and I recorded the hair stylist doing my hair! I bought the Beachwaver 7 months ago during Amazon Prime Day, and I have yet to open the box! Now that I have a video of someone doing my hair with the Beachwaver tool, I have no excuse to not use it!

Getting my hair done is one of my favorite activities, since blowouts are easily $50. For $50, you can easily take a bus to Philadelphia, Washington DC, or Boston for a day trip.

For this week’s free NYC event list expect free yoga, panel discussions, runs, movie screening of Joker, Photoshop, goal-getters workshop, comedy show, art painting class, swing dance lesson, and a discussion about understanding your financial statement.
