I get bored with my hair really quickly, and usually I deal with this by cutting it. However, at the moment I'm liking my fairly easy haircut, even though the bangs aren't all that flattering. Still, I'm thirsting for a bit of a change. I've ruled out an unnatural hair color at the moment, and I've been planning to let my hair grow for a while, which rules out snipping it off.
So at the moment I've resigned myself to a hair rut. Until the notion of an updo popped into my head. You see, I'm not good at putting my hair up in fancy styles. My braids are disastrous, my attempts at buns frightful. Even my ponytails, which are my go-to 'do, are a mess of bumps and stray hairs. But I think maybe it's time to play around and see if I might be able to form the coif into something that looks remotely like one of these non-pretentious-yet-sweetly-glamorous updos:
That should feed the need for a bit of hair change! At the very least, I can ooh and aah over stylish updos meant for dressy occasions:
I am constantly disgusted by the stiff, curly buns I see on a disturbing amount of salon-goers on special occasions. I'm talking about the dreaded "prom hair," I suppose. But these styles manage to look soft, not stiff, and I love the retro vibes. There is not a chance I could create one of these masterpieces on my own, but maybe some day (perhaps on that far-off wedding?) I can show one of these photos to a master hair stylist and let them work their magic.
I did some shopping today, the fruits of which I plan to model for y'all tomorrow, but for now I think I'm going to arm myself with brush, mirror, and hairspray for some serious hair playtime. If I end up with anything that looks close to decent, I'll provide photographic evidence. Wish me luck, dawgs.
