I’ve never been great with hair. I dislike the feel of “product,” and my husband has always preferred what he calls “surfer-girl” hair (when I just let it air dry). My hair is super straight and super fine, so it has always been pretty easy to just let it be.
After having Evelyn, I lost a ton of hair. So I cut my bangs to help hide the regrowth, and I really loved having a definite style that was still super easy. BUT – that means I have even less hair to work with. So I asked my new friend, Megan, to show me a way to get more volume and to mask my new baby hairs.
I LOVE what she showed me and have already used it for: a trip to the doctor’s office, a date night, our small group night. And I tried Jessi’s top knot tutorial for Easter Sunday. Next up: Hayley’s twisted halo. These are everyday hairstyles for REAL ladies.
Want to try this for yourself? Even with shorter hair, it is super cute. Here are a few tricks:
.. I used hair bands in the video, but since then I’ve picked up these cheap Goody sectioning clips to make it faster.
.. Always curl AWAY from your face.
.. Save hairspray until the end (so you don’t end up like this poor girl….)
.. Use a 1 1/4 inch curling iron. I immediately went out to buy this one AND:
If you need a little more freshness …. there’s also Makeup for Real Ladies.
