11 Things Toronto Curly Girls Can Relate To
We Toronto girls fight the elements for our curls every day. Hair experts refer to braids and twists as “protective styles” for a reason, ‘cuz it’s a battlefield, sis. Our curls go through a lot. Wind, heat, and cold weather can leave tresses feeling dry and brittle. If you’ve declined an invitation because of wash day during the winter solstice, you totally get what we mean. A curlfriend better have good bathroom lighting to get the ‘do done after 4 pm during the winter months! Right? Here are some other experiences you may relate to:
- You’ve lifted your side curls and told someone to repeat something you couldn’t hear while switching tracks in the Spadina station tunnel.
- You change lyrics to songs when you’re having a good hair day. “Who run the world? Curls!”
- It takes longer for you to take Kost patio selfies because you’re trying to catch all your curls + the CN Tower in the shot.
- You always have a scrunchie in your purse because you know the GTA’s humidity can change at any second.
- You’ve done a Hurontario “car dry”—driving with the windows down so your curls can dry while you head to Square One Shopping Centre.
- You always feel your curls are a hot mess, but others keep telling you how gorgeous and lucky you are to have beautiful curls and waves.
- When you get an invitation for an outdoor wedding at Liberty Grand Entertainment Complex, you immediately start to google wedding hairpins and crystal hair ties.
- If you go on a first date in Yorkville with your hair in a bun, you either ran out of time to get ready, or you probably already put your date in the friend zone. You always let your curls out when you really want to impress.
- You have a Pride hair scrunchie, a Jerk fest scrunchie, a Jazz Fest scrunchie…AKA your token everyday/festival hair scrunchie.
- Right after New Year’s Day you immediately start planning your Caribana hair growth routine, so spend your Christmas gift cointz on new hair vitamins and luxury hair conditioner.
- If your curls don’t turn out how you planned for an event, not even a CNE poutine or Nadège macaron could make you feel better.
