I did this recently this past week with two hairstyles I pinned. I did my best to replicate. Neither of them are spot on, but I think with enough time and practice I'll be able to master these a bit better. I'm a big fan of messy, 'bed head'. It's rare that I'll run a brush through my hair trying to get perfect glossy straight hair. I'm usually tossing a few loose curls with the iron and out the door. I have naturally stick straight hair and would kill for some natural curl.
The first hairstyle was this adorable messy ponytail. I had curled my hair the day before so it still had some volume and texture to it already. I did one of the 'flip' ponytails, making sure not to pull it tight so the volume would stay. It doesn't look exactly like the example. I think I need to do a few more twists and pin a few pieces next time.
The next 'do I pinned and did was a simple topknot finished with a braid up the back from the base of the neck. I'm not usually one to wear my hair all pulled back from my face or in a knot on top of my head (unless I'm home). Surprisingly enough I received a ton of compliments at work that day for having my hair pulled back. This is one do I'm going to replicate on a regular basis. It was super easy to do and stayed all day. The tricky part is being able to do a french braid up the back of your hair. I'm actually fairly good at doing french braids. I was the girl who had to braid everyone's hair in grade school for field day because I was the only one who knew how to french braid.
Here are a few other styles I've pinned and plan to try:
I've actually done this one before. I love this girl and her style, both clothes and hair, have always been an inspiration to me. I pinned this as a reminder to try this 'do again sometime.
I love this simple double knotted pony tail. I'm not exactly sure how the knot stays, but I'm going to give it a whirl.
Finally, this is a picture I saved to my computers long before the days of Pinterest. I actually saved it a few years back when I was planning for our wedding and considered it for my hairstyle on the day. I'd love to perfect the messy bun. I always have trouble having enough volume while keeping my hair tight enough that the bun doesn't fall out.
Have you tried anything you've pinned?
