With spring rapidly approaching, I’m getting eager for changes: warmer weather, cherry blossom trees bursting with flowers, and sandals instead of Ugg boots. One thing though that hasn’t changed in many seasons is my hair. I’ve been letting it grow out since summer 2009 and this is the longest that I have ever gone without a drastic change. This is odd for me because for years I went through a cycle of growing out my hair, and cutting it, growing it out, and cutting it. However, after the second time of cutting it super-short and immediately being envious of my long-locked friends I committed to myself that no matter how much I wanted to cut it, I wouldn’t. I’ve kept this promise to myself… so far. I’m thinking sometime in the fall I may cut it and donate it.
But I digress, season after season of long hair has left me in a style rut. I’m sick of alternating between hair down, hair half up, and ponytail. I have recently come up with a few styles for spring that I am excited to share with you…
For years I had bangs that swept from the left side of my face to the right, during the summer I let them grow up, and spare one time my frustration got the best of me, I have kept them long. However, when I’m not wearing a headband, they get sort of awkward and just… hang there. So I came up with this super easy hairstyle (I can do it sitting in class… well not the hairspray part).
4) Secure with bobby pins at the end of the braid behind your ear, and bring the rest of your hair around to make a low, side ponytail. Then add bobby pins along your braid anywhere it seems loose or you have flyaway hairs
There’s tons of variations on this style… you can make the low ponytail into a low bun, you can braid the hair towards the back of your head & then secure a high ponytail or bun, or you could do a similar braid going off of the other side of your part to have a lovely crown of braids!
I sort of love all of the granny florals and lace that’s in style for spring. This hairstyle is the perfect way to top off your floral dress and sandals look.
My camera’s battery ran out before I could get one with a headband on, so I had to do one with my crappy webcam…
So… get styling! :)
