Adventures in Escaping Your Hair Rut!

Are you stuck in a hair rut? Feel like it always looks the same? Bored? That’s my MO. I have a terrible tendency to suddenly and drastically fall out of love with my hair — often over night. I go from loving the color to being totally over it. Or from being really creative with styling it different ways to doing the same pulled back with a barrette over and over. After being sick for a whole week, I felt like my hair didn’t know how to do anything but be in a braid. I came back to work this week with a fire in mind to try new things and to have fun. So I did! I thought as a post to get me back into the swing of things I would show you my range of hair for the week!

Straight and smooth:

It’s a classic for a reason. Straight and smooth — simply blow dry straight and straighten where it needs a little help — is actually quick. It looks neat all day and has a nice classic vibe to it.

Next, I did Hermione hair:

I was actually inspired by Gwen Stefani’s look on the Voice (see below) but then decided to take it to the next level — the Hermione level of curl.



Then sticking with the curl theme, I did super curly bangs with a braid crown.

This one was a pretty whimsical look and it got me a surprising number of compliments.

Finally, I finished the week with the quickest (I had early court) hair a girl can do — the top knot. I deconstructed it a bit to make it fun and am jazzed with the results.

With your hair, it’s no challenge to be creative – you can be inspired by just about anything. It’s great to be back and to be up to my usual shenanigans!
