Most days I simply wear my hair down and wavy. It’s so thick that it hurts to wear a ponytail all day and I have done the bun-on-top-of-the-head look… but honestly, I feel a little bit silly that way. There are so many hairstyles that are pretty, though. Most of them I’ve seen on Pinterest.
My attempt at doing something “Pinterest.”
Here is the original hair:
Here is what I wound up with:
I’m not that good at doing my own hair. This took me many tries and a very log time. I have no idea what the girl in the original picture did with the hair that wound up in the bun in mine… it’s like magic!!
But I’m here to say that (inspired by another blog, where she took Pinterest ideas with clothing and style and made them her own) sometimes it’s fun to try something, even if it doesn’t turn out perfectly.
Another style attempt I’ve made lately (one I swore I would never do… check out #5) is to get bangs. As any girl knows, it’s a big commitment to make! This picture of Reese Witherspoon was one I saw a few days before I went in to get the chop.
One day I felt pretty good about the decision I’d made. Here is a pic from that day!!
So, the point here is not that I want to copy everything I see. My point is that sometimes getting a little inspiration here and there can help. In a weird way, seeing something like bangs in a different context gave me that extra little boost to just go for it. Same with the updo… I never would have thought to do it if I hadn’t seen it done by someone else.
If you see something that inspires you, don’t be afraid to try it!!! You might just love your new look or attitude!!
