My favorite piece of technology


Every time people think of techonolgy  things like computers, i pods, or modern cell phones come to their minds, but in my personal case, it's different. When I think of technology, I think of my hair straightener.

It may sound a bit shallow, but the truth is my favorite piece of technology is my hair straightener.
I couldn't live without it!

Hair straighteners are a great device for women, (and even for some men). We can get our hairs done in a few minutes without going to the hairdresser's. They can be used to straighten or even to make waves in one's hair.

In my personal case, I use it every day, because my natural hair is wavy, but I need it perfectly straight in this period of my life.

I got my hair cut last year. I decided to change its style and try  the bob hairstyle.
The straight short bob was something I always wanted to try, but I never dared to, because I don't like the way it looks in me with my waves, so I just thought it wasn't meant for me.








I wanted to get a "new look" and change from my long wavy hair to a straight short bob, so a friend gave me the straightener as a birthday present. In this way, she encouraged me to change. With this magic piece of technology I could easily look like a different person.






If I didn't have my straightener, I think I wouldn't feel comfortable with my new  appearance, and these kind of things are important for women. This is why I think t's definetly one of the best inventions in the world!

Write about your favourite piece of technology.

What it is.
