I like my hair. I want to show it off. It’s a nice color, shiny, bouncy, and soft(of course I condition and blow-dry and straighten etc. etc. to get it that way, but I digress). I usually wear it down, but I get a lot of compliments when I put it up, which is usually just in a ponytail/jaw clip, which is easy but boring. Plus I like having it off my neck in the summer, so…
…I need some ideas for cute and interesting ways to put it up. I completely lack creativity in this department. I’m 25 and I feel like I kind of missed the boat on a lot of “girly” stuff, as it’s only recently that I’ve even begun to care about things like hair and makeup and clothes.
Pertinent info: My hair is layered. The shortest part in front goes to about an inch or so below my jaw, and the longest part in back is down to my shoulderblades. I have a lot of hair, but it is baby fine and tends to slip out of barrettes and things after a few hours. I have on hand elastics, jaw clips(including some teeny tiny ones), and… that’s about it, although I wouldn’t mind spending a few bucks on accessories if I know I’ll use them more than once.
Ideas? Suggestions? Remember I’m new at this, so nothing that I’ll need 2 hours and 6 arms for, please!
