So. I only wash my hair a couple times a week, and comb through it even less. I have my friend Stella dye it, meh, every couple of months or so? And I get it cut about as often, if not less, so I'm usually pretty rich in split ends.
Taking all of that under consideration, I get a surprising amount of compliments on my hair. More specifically, I get a lot of compliments on the manner in which I put my hair up. So, without further ado, here is one of my two 'up' styles. I call it Low Side Bun For Work.
I started doing this because I couldn't find any hair ties. Pretty much, I do this thing to my hair every. single. day. To implement, you need two large bobby pins and three regular sized ones. No brushing required! Pull your hair over to one side, twist into a 'rope', and then twist that around into a figure eight. Holding the end of your hair (which will be the top of the figure eight) against your scalp, secure the two big bobby pins in an 'ex' fashion, so they're holding each other in place. Use the three small bobby pins to tame any fly-aways, loose-ends, etc.
I suppose you could do this on the back of your head, but I don't look at the back of my head when I'm doing my hair, and when it's pulled over to the side you can sorta see when you're jabbing pins into your head. Which is nice.
Next time I do it, I'll take pictures, and we can discuss my other 'up-do', The Texas Prom Queen.
