Let’s be real….and talk hair.
I’ve pretty much always maintained my hair at least shoulder length, sometimes longer and sometimes shorter (we won’t go there).
That length just seems to be a great length for my face, along with the fact that I exercise several days per week and CANNOT stand for my hair to be on my neck when I’m sweating (ladies that wear their hair down to the gym, all fixed and cute, baffles me-they must not sweat or get as hot as I do…that’s all I’m saying 🙂 ).
Okay….if I’m being real and honest….I’m lazy and wear my hair up in a ponytail, twist, bun, etc.. at least 3 times/ week.
Seriously, my hair takes work (take the unruly curl out then put manageable curls back in).
It has always been work, probably always will, and by Thursday, I’m totally over it.
That’s exactly how I feel about my hair! (actually the link to buzz feed is pretty hilarious-so true about my hair-check it out)
With that said, I found an excellent hair/ fashion/ lifestyle blogger on Facebook.
She’s actually a former hairstylist out of NC turned full-time mom to one (and expecting one) and full-time blogger (yes, you can make money doing this-me, no money yet).
Shes’ Kate from ‘The Small Things Blog.’
She has a huge internet, Facebook, and instagram following (see the link to follow at the bottom) and has a great, easy to maneuver website.
She’s wrote hair styling or product articles; created hair tutorials; and tested make-up, not only for her website but also for several magazines (Real Simple) and make up companies.
Apparently, her blog is doing well enough that she decided to make it her full-time job!
The most impressive thing is she’s down to earth and appears to be really sweet. (disclaimer: I’ve gathered all this insight from reading her weekly posts-I do not know her personally but feel like I do).
So, I began viewing and trying out some of her video tutorials, especially those involving either pulling the hair up off the neck or away from my face.
Trust me, they are really easy, quick, explanatory, and you can pin them to pinterest for those days when you are tired of doing the same old stuff to your hair.
I’ve done this one:
and this one….
Unfortunately, I didn’t take pictures of any of them when I did them.
But, I do remember getting a lot of compliments and questions on them.
She’s a really great blogger/ hairstylist and I highly recommend you start following her on Facebook or subscribe to her emails.
Let me know or post pictures to my Facebook page if you try any of these styles out.
I’m curious to know what you think!
