You just can’t get a good finish on it. For some of you, you might even say the coat is IMPOSSIBLE to deal with. You just CAN’T make it to look good!

Can any of you relate to this frustration with your everyday haircuts?

However, she has some tricks to share with you. You can get this coat to cooperate with you. You can make it look good. Cute. Super appealing.
