Y'all, I've got to start doing something with my hair. Really. I like having my hair off my face, so I tend to pull my hair back all the time [Evidence of such in this post and this one]. But it is time to spice up the pony. Since I joined Pinterest, I keep seeing these pretty little do's that are inspiring me:
It makes me laugh when I see these styles termed "messy." I've got the messy part down, but truly, these aren't actually "messy!" I guess messy in that "I've spent a long time getting my hair to look this particular mess" kind of way.
I think I need some product, too. Not much of a product gal, but that may be because I haven't found the right one. With all the humidity down here, those natural good hair days [like the ones experienced in say, Wyoming] are few and far between. Gotta make them happen!
Now I just need to figure out how to either a: actually get my hair to do these things or b: finagle a way to get my own personal hairstylist, who will come to my house every morning and do my hair while I'm wiping up gobs of oatmeal. Sounds dreamy, no?
UPDATE: As if on cue, while I was typing and mulling over this post before I published it, I saw this awesome tutorial on Cup of Joe about making a "messy side ponytail!" I think I just might be able to pull this one off...
And PS: If you are on Pinterest, let me know!
