I'd like to think that I have a few talents in life. But there are some things that I'm just never going to master.
Exhibit A: my hair.
Now, I'm not sure if it boils down to incompetency, impatience, or just plain laziness, but I'm at this point in my life where I could care less about doing a single thing to my hair. Obviously, as evidenced by the pictures above, some days I forget to even pick up the brush. We'll just call it disheveled chic. Back in middle school when I got my own personal version of the "Rachel," I would wake up at 5:30 every morning to wash, dry, and meticulously curl my hair. I'm sure it was totally worth it.
Apparently, I'm having a hard time finding the line between trying too hard, and just plain not trying.
I envy those girls with their natural, beachy waves. Or the ones who can whip out some elaborate braided, twisted updo like it was nothing. I never even perfected the messy bun. Yes, I'm aware that "perfect" isn't really the object of the whole thing, but mine just never looks right. How do you do it?? And as much as I adore curly hair on other women, thank goodness I wound up with straight, because I'd have no idea what to do with that situation. I'm a "wash and air dry, maybe tie a scarf on my head if I'm feeling fancy," kind of girl.
So, do you have any great advice? Have you mastered the art of the messy bun? What are your go to hairstyles?
