Recently I have been experimenting with my hair. I hate getting hair cuts because it always takes me such a long time to get used to the change in length and how I style my hair. I also want my hair to be as long as possible so getting it cut will only take me a step back. The "bun on the top of your head" a.k.a ballerina bun is really in right now and I've tried in on my hair several times, but I just can't bring myself to walk out of the house with the style yet.
I'm not really a hair person but I've found that if you just blow dry wet hair and pull it back, and throw it into the bun, the hair is a lot more fuller, creating a much larger bun. Hairspray is also your best friend with this 'do. I've also been doing a lot of pony tails a la Serena from Gossip Girl. Her hair looks so great in a slick pony tail and this type of hairdo is great for those mornings when you're waking up late. Other than recent trends, I've been looking at retro images to inspire my creativity. Here are some that I've been loving from Pinterest and Tumblr.
I love the bow pulling her hair out of her face. Very simple and easy to do too!
I saw this on Pinterest and just had to share! Lauren Conrad shows how to get that '40s look!
So Vogue! Love the side pony given a little glamor with the curled ends.
This style is unfortunately only capable with short hair but I love the style!
Another great look-- if you can pull of this hair, you have lots of possible Halloween costumes!
Love this look too! That far-to-the-side part is perfect. If I didn't color my hair, I'd switch my part all of the time, but unfortunately, I keep the same part because that's where my hair gets the blondest. It doesn't help that all of these women are gorgeous too! So how do you style your hair when you are stuck in a rut? When you've pressed the snooze button too many times? When you're in need of a cut? Have a fabulous day!
