Braids and Knots

I’ve been telling myself for months that I desperately need a haircut, but haven’t gotten around to doing it yet. It’s really embarrassing how much of a procrastinator I am! But now that my hair is so long, I want to keep it just for a while longer and play around with it.

I love hair that looks as bit messy. Firstly because it isn’t too try hard, and more importantly, it’s more forgiving if you don’t get it exactly perfect. Here’s a super quick and easy way to do up your hair on those unmanageable days.

Messy Braid and Bun
1. Make a small (french) braid on one side of your head and tie with a small hair elastic. You can choose to leave your bangs or if it’s one of those really troublesome hair days, then you might as well throw them in. If you choose to do a french braid, the hair is gathered tighter and looks a bit neater.
2. Taking the braid and the rest of your hair twist and twirl hair into a bun. You can choose to tease your hair with some spray before you do this for a bigger, messier look. Loosen up the bun to make it look more erratic.
3. Use bobby pins to keep put loose pieces in place.

Voila!

How do you manage a bad hair day?
