I had an extra 10-or-so minutes this morning while getting ready for work. So I decided to try out something I had PINNED a while ago. This pin doesn't have any explanation, unfortunately...it was just pictures of pretty summer hair styles. All the same, it was enough inspiration for a good starting point.
It turns out my hair either wasn't long enough for this exact affect, or it needs to be dry in order to work this way. I would consider my finished product a little more controlled than the picture, but that is just me. I long to be carefree sometimes, but I'm too OCD for that. I just kept grabbing fly-away pieces and pinning them down. I'm happy with the finished look. It definitely needs some practice and hopefully will look better next time. Overall, I like it for a ponytail alternative at work. It doesn't have that same "I rolled out of bed and showed up" vibe that a straing ponytail does sometimes. But I still don't have to blow dry and straighten my hair! My kind of styling! (O:
