so here i am, with scraggly ends and a misshapen head, torn between cutting it off again for the summer and continuing to let it go, pulling it up in a rather unflattering ponytail. pretty deep dilemma i'm stuck in, eh? and when i busted out the flatiron last week for the first time in ages (longish hair also makes me pretty darn lazy), i was pretty surprised at how long it's really gotten.
i realized that i had enough length to actually try something fun and new, and after perusing my pinterest beauty board, i settled on this idea - using my own strands to make a braided headband.
i thought my hair stuck out a little oddly on the sides, but after a little manipulation i got the stamp of approval from both the teen and rock-ell.
the only downside: i spent the whole evening feeling as though my sunglasses were perched atop my nugget. plus, the hair at the top could've used a swipe or twelve with a teasing comb and some hairspray, to give it a little volume. but hey, not too bad for a first attempt...right?
just smile, nod, and go with it. thanks.
