Bring on the summer hair

1 May

Since I’m on the go constantly, I like to spend the most time sleeping and the least getting ready in the morning.  Throughout time, with the long locks that I like to keep, I’ve found many easy and fast ways to make your hair look like you put more time into than you really did.  This is one of my favorite go-to styles and takes less than five minutes.  All you need are some bobby pins and a hair tie to make it happen.  It also helps if you can braid your own hair but you could live without the braids.  I do this style to my own hair all the time and sometimes I feel the messier it is, the better.

I put a few small braids on each side.

Then I messily pull back my hair into a pony tail tucking the braids in as well.

I tie up the loose strands into a low messy bun.

Then I take my bobby pins and pull pieces from all over and pin them around my lower crown.

Voila!  A low Grecian-style bun.

This is an easy way to tame your summer hair in just minutes.  It’s also nice to keep it out of your face when the temperatures are peaking.  I have a few more easy summer hair styles I will share over the next couple weeks.

      Thanks, Maricar! Let me know when you try so I can go check it out, it almost looks better on un-cooperative hair 🙂
