I’ve been experimenting with hairstyles lately, mostly because I’m trying to grow out my bangs and they’re not quite long enough to tuck behind my ears, yet too long to wear as “normal” bangs. Therefore, I’ve been trying to find alternatives to wearing my hair in a ponytail every. single. day. Because that’s what I was doing up until a few weeks ago. Now, thanks to some inspiration pinned on Pinterest and a bucket full of bobby pins, I’m giving my hairstyles an upgrade.
Today’s came from this tutorial.
I watched the video, realized she doesn’t have bangs, and altered it to fit my own hair. My twist is tighter and I used a bobby pin near the top of the twist, and two near the bottom to secure everything.
My only wish is that my braid was a tad thinner. After leaving for work and wearing it for most of the day I realized I would’ve liked a little more hair in-between the braid and my face, but that’s just personal preference.
For those interested, my shirt is from Target, necklace was a gift from my sister, and my poor posture is from my father.
This is what I do when I’m playing with me camera:
And if you weren’t aware, I’m naturally blonde, went back to my roots (pun unintended) and I no longer wear contacts. You’re pretty much up to speed now.
