Having her hair combed is not how Penelope planned to spend her summer vacation. Getting these puffy curls in some kind of order will surely take hours. Her hair is so full of frizz that Penelope would much rather do without it. But when she finally allows her mother to comb it, she begins to see how truly special her puffy curls are.
