This is the time of year when I get the urge to do something different with my hair. I’ve been toying with the idea of cutting it for some time now but my hairdresser has told me no. Yes, that’s how it works with us. I tell her what I would like and then she does what she wants. To be fair though I always end up liking what she does. She went out of town recently for an extended holiday and left me to my own devices. Naturally I turned to the Internet for guidance, and this is what I came up with.
On freshly washed hair I took each individual lock of hair and bent it so that the bend was just at my chin or in some cases my collar bone and then wrapped the hair around itself. If I was a better blogger I would have had before and after photos with numbered steps. In my defense I had no idea I was going to be able to pull it off. I was seriously just winging it, and wouldn’t you know it worked.
The reaction from the peanut gallery was very favorable. There were a lot of questions about how I got it to stay (gravity? – insert shrug here) and several comments about how I looked so much younger(insert side eye here). I took these pictures in the last days of the style for posterity.
Do you change your hair with the seasons?
