Pinterest Fails Me, Then Wins Me Back!

Posted on the 18 May 2012 by Mikidemann @mikidemann
I have this obsession with hair styles on pinterest. I ALWAYS wear my hair down and straight. I used to wear my hair up every day in high school, and I just think that it was always ugly since I usually just threw it up. So after I graduated and had more time to get ready, since I was waking up at 5:30am to catch a bus or make it to school anymore. BUT I never have known how to actually do my hair, so it is always down and straight. This year I made a goal to try out new styles. My hair is getting really long and it’s fun to play with now. OVer the past couple months I will try styles out, but usually it ends up down and straight or down and wavy, because those are my go to styles. Do you guys have a go to style, or am I a freak? Probably a freak, oh well. =) Last night I decided I would try this hair style:(click on the photo for the link)168885054746762978_C3kSrCLu_f-2012-05-18-13-44.jpgI thought that this would work, because I have actually seen quite a few people in blog land who have tried this style, and they raved about how easy it was and how well it worked. So of course before bed, I twisted, tugged and eventually got my hair to wrap around a head band. It really is incredibly hard to do this, or maybe I am incredibly stupid. But I had to retwist the hair after each time around the head band, and I was having a hard time finding enough space on the band for all my hair. Eventually I finish and looked like a troll.FAIL-2012-05-18-13-44.pngI slept uncomfortably on this disaster all night. The elastic wasn’t comfy on my head and there were like little strands of hair pulling. Plus I woke up at about 4am and could feel some of the hair had fallen out. The above photos I took this morning, that’s why it looks so frizzy and unmanaged. So I take the twists out… my hair looks like this. I even tried to brush it out after since the curls looks HORRID and my hair just looked awful. Like a poodle who got stuck in the dryer or like little dog poops that got stuck in the dogs rear end coming out. It really was not pretty at all.uggo-2012-05-18-13-44.pngSo at this point I have to leave for work in about 20 minutes. I didn’t have any make up on or anything, so now I was in a rush! I hurried and grabbed my iPad and pulled up pinterest in a desperate attempt to find a new hair style. I have tried the top knot. Totally does not work for me. I have so much hair that the knot is ginormous and just starts to fall out and make me look like a ninja. So I came across this photo that I had pinned (once again click the photo for the link).122441683589460218_8JukybbL_f-2012-05-18-13-44.jpgI decided to go for it. It was time to wear my hair up. I was actually pretty pleased with the braided bun. I think it looks casual, but it still looks like you did your hair. Plus how she has her bow under the bun is kinda different and fun. I didn’t have time to find a bow or make one, so I just grabbed a small flower. winner-2012-05-18-13-44.png
