Seems simple enough: Buy a curling iron, twist hair around the blistering cylinder, and voila, ringlets.
So why does it so often turn into Toddlers & Tiaras and — to magnify the insult — fall flat five minutes later?
Find out what the experts are doing (and you’re not). Today’s Easy Does It video is How to Curl Your Hair the Right Way — and make it stay.
We consulted the geniuses at NYC’s Whittemore House, who showed us everything from how to hold the iron (who knew?) to which products to use (crucial).
And brace yourselves: Mousse is back.

We’re not sure if oysters are aphrodisiacs, but (in the name of science) we’re willing to eat hundreds to find out.
The fruits of our labor: an In the Kitchen video with Lisa Giffen, executive chef at Maison Premiere in Williamsburg, who shows us how to choose, shuck, and eat (slurp or fork?) an oyster.
The restaurant is our favorite place in the city for bivalves, especially once its paradise of an outdoor space opens (which will be in two to three weeks or “as soon as everything’s in bloom”).
Even our editor who swore off oysters fifteen years ago came away wanting more.
That’s what he said.
Maison Premiere, 298 Bedford Avenue, between Grand and South 1st Streets (347-335-0446 or maisonpremiere.com). Hungry for more? Check out our videos on drinking Scotch, making fish tacos, and cooking a juicy burger. And, by all means, vote for us to win a Webby.
