Static electricity and incredible nervousness.
It is that magical time of year when breath turns into a misty cloud floating in the grey sky.
The season when the frost closes the eye to the sweet summer. It’s the time of year when all I have to do to my hair is wear a giant beanie out the door.
Everything’s great until I take off the hat…

Let me give you some tips that you might find useful.

Change the fabric of your cap.
Fliess and acrylics are the sin of static electricity.

as well as the hot air from the dryer does not help at all…
The professional’s nightmare in hairstyling is when the hair gets electric in winter.
