Nice Buns!

streetstyle7925-webWe’re making our way towards spring and that usually means a more laid back approach to beauty and fashion.  As temps rise and humidity starts to wreak havoc, we need sure fire styles to keep our mane under control.

Chignon’s and buns are not just for grandma’s anymore.  The 21st century re-vamp has made buns ultra cool and sophisticated.  Whether pulled low at the nape or high on the crown, wrapping our hair up has made skipping shampoo’s that much easier.  xoxo


No Fuss, Bed Head

I don’t know if it’s common practice not to use a brush to comb your hair, but  I personally never take a hair brush out to groom.  So I guess by default I walk around with “bed head” consistently.  The pulling and ripping of hair follicles out of my scalp is not one that I find physically pleasing.  With that said, I do find an unkept/kept head of hair sexy.

Not everyone has enough natural body to just leave their hair alone.  There’s no doubt that styling “no fuss” hair takes a bit of work.  Usually the best time to do this is the day you wash your hair.  Dry and style as usual, adding finger curls sprayed with hair spray.  Once you’ve added body, try to leave it alone.  The more you play with your hair, the more the natural oils from your hands settle in it.  Which weighs your hair down over time.  Finding a product that will allow you to refresh your hair in the morning is key.  Unfortunately trial and error is the only way to find the product that works best for you.  Don’t work so hard, keep it loose and relaxed.  Summer is the best time of year to just let go.  xoxo

Love the ease of a pulled back chignon.
