A New Book Celebrates the Beauty of Curly Girls

Lorraine Massey and Kara Baranski

Although I typically have straight hair, there is a part of me that has always coveted curls. Earlier this week, I attended an event at Devachan, a salon specializing in curly hair. The event was celebrating the launch of owner Lorraine Massey’s new book, Curly Girl: The Handbook (Workman Publishing, February 2011). American Spa’s art director, Kara Baranski, has gorgeous curls galore, so I figured the event would be right up her alley, and, indeed, it was. Shortly after our arrival, Kara was whisked away for a curl makeover. She even got to meet Massey, her curl idol. Even I got swept up in the excitement when one of the stylists there revealed curls I never knew I had. They say blondes have more fun, but I think curly girls may have them beat. Look for more on the book in an upcoming issue.
