Making the Ordinary, Extraordinary
My hairstyle, that is! I absolutely love buns. They are so chic, and they look terribly tricky to pull together. They are also super easy to actually pin up, and cut my hair styling routine down to about ten minutes a day.
Here`s five buns, with terrible pictures, that I`ve worn this week! The poor pictures are because I`m poor at taking pictures of myself, and my willing helper ShockBoy (I`ll need to think up a new codename for him, this one doesn`t really describe him at all) doesn`t really understand what angles are important. Why would he? It`s not like he could do practically any hairstyles with two inches of length to work on. Sure, he can sort of gel and spike his bangs (which he never does, and he always cuts it when it starts to look adorably slightly undone. You can`t believe how many girls are upset by that! Well, actually, only a few that I know of. He`s very focused on school work, so I doubt he`d even notice if a girl was very focused on him, or his hairstyle!)
When I`m doing buns like this, I actually think of them as my casual hairstyle. You throw in a braid or two, randomly twist things about, and pin it in place. If only I could take pictures of the back of my head as well as I can make styles there! I can see that I really need to get a hand mirror, so I can see what`s going on back there. (And, again, take pictures of it!)
You can always go look to the unexpected to help you make your grand entrance. In this case, as I am always restraining my hair in some style, I sometimes like to let my hair down and wear it as-is. As long as I make sure to lightly condition the ends, my hair does these amazing undone curls without any help from myself. I only have to condition because my hair is currently past my shoulder blades and gets dry very easily, as I don`t even have to take that step when my hair was chin length!
Of course, even my dearest friends suspect I am wearing a wig or a weave when they see my hair out and down. I think my updos look like I have very little hair? In all honesty, I do, but it really isn`t a matter of length. I just literally have less hairs than most people, and it`s thin to boot!
