Hi my name's Amber and I only have one hair style. I've been wearing a high messy bun most days for about 10 (!!) years. So needless to say, I'm in a bit of a hair rut and in desperate need of inspiration. I've considered bangs (my typical reaction), a short do ( don't know if I'm that brave), and maybe even a new color (David's convinced me not to... for now!).
So instead, I'm doing a hairstyle challenge. My thought process went something like this:
1. Ugh. My hair is starting to feel lifeless and unwieldily and oh so boring.
2. I know! I'll do something dramatic and maybe a little bit edgy! (read: expensive and committing)
3. Eh but I can't get to the salon every month... Also, I guess, different isn't always better.
4. How about a 30 day hairstyle challenge? Like when someone does their makeup different every day for a month or even goes on a strict diet for a month.
Motivated by the challenge, I began to scour Pinterest for inspiration. I got about 3 ideas in before I veered off into fashion that I will never be cool enough to pull off and interior decoration of destination vacation homes that I will never own. Seriously, that is the most overwhelming site ever.
After I have accumulated a small pool of dubiously-accomplishable hairstyles, I decide I probably won't bet my life on completing 30 days. Then I did what anyone would do when they break a habit (new diet, quit smoking, whatever): I continued what I was doing and picked some later date in the future to start.
Here are some of my favorites that I just might try again:
|Twin Half-French-Braid in a bun|
|Bobby pin (yes this counts as a new hair style for me- I NEVER wear my hair down...)|
|Full frech braid|
P.S. It's kind of driving me nuts that the lighting is different in each of these... sigh.
P.P.S. Wait, it's the end of September?!?! And I only wrote 6 posts. Man, that really got away from me.
