I have a love hate relationship with long hair. It's soo nice that I can just throw it up in a bun if I don't feel like fixing it. But, it's hot in the summer. So I put together some of my favorite hairstyles that help me not to run to the hair salon and chop off my hair!
1.) The braid into a ponytail.
First off, I love Reese. She's one of my favorites. Secondly, she braids her hair thinly into a straight pony tail. You could also curl your hair, put in a pony tail, and pin the hair up into a messy bun straight in the back or on the side. I usually like the side because it shows off your hair well. I occationally do a thicker braid too. Either one works! I usually do this when I have to get ready for my day, but know I am going to the pool or the lake. That way my hair is out of my face and don't have to worry about it. Just don't forget to put sunscreen in your part or you'll have a sunburnt head!
2.) Wavy - short or long!
Short is soo cute. Definitely takes time though. It's not easy getting those short hairs in the back. Just being real ;)
Medium length is perfect for waves. If you need a tutorial on how to do the wavy look, just google and find one that suites you. It's easy, you just need patience! Also, I've found that you can buy a cheap curling iron. You don't really need a quality one. Just one that heats up well! I think I bought mine 4 years ago. Got it for free from Kroger because they had the price tagged wrong! Oh, also, go for a medium barrel. You don't want your curls TOO curly. Just medium.
This is my usual daily fix. I am not always creative at 7:00 in the morning. BUT, I do have a tip. Everyone always told me that you need an expensive hair straightener. Thankfully, I didn't believe them. I went to Target and found the perfect one.
Anyway, the reason for this post is because I have a haircut tomorrow. I am having a rough time convincing myself not to cut it all off! I think I'll just go for a nice medium length to take a little weight off!
