Hair apparent.

I am really bad when it comes to my hair. I can do a pretty decent blowout, and I'm OK with a flatiron, but other than that, nope. I picked up a curling iron for the first time this year—seriously—and I've only recently figured out what products actually work for my long, wavy, fine locks.

Also, my hair is pretty much always in a ponytail, but I've realized that if I wash it and blow it dry at night, then sleep on it, I get a pretty nice wave, even if I'm just wearing it up. But the other night we had our office holiday party and I figured I should try and do something with it, so I came home from work, changed into a sparkly sweater, and then—using this Everygirl hair tutorial as inspiration—pulled some front pieces back, bobby-pinned it all (admittedly kind of randomly) and then hairsprayed the you-know-what out of it. And I thought it came out pretty well, so I'm doing it again for a dinner I'm going to this week. (Here's a photo of how it turned out the first time, if you'd like to see.)

Do you have a go-to hairstyle?

  1. I'm always envious of those girls who can pull off any hairstyle but I'm mostly the same way. It's either down and curly or down and straight. Ta-da!

  2. I put as much thought into my hair as I do into my outfits most days: little to none :) I don't really know what to do with my hair either. It's too thick, and there's too much of it. And it's usually too hot in Australia to wear it down. I recently bobbed it though, and it looks great - only problem is it grows back too fast!

    But the best tip for beautiful hair I ever received was from my grandmother: use Moroccan oil. It's the best.
