so, can you tell i’m finished with university and haven’t begun working full time yet? ;) i decided to fill this lazy old week with a project: learning how to do a couple of new types of braids, and mastering some proper ‘grown up’ hairstyles!
it’s actually been quite a fun little task (time filler!) – i’ve been trawling blogs, pinterest and youtube for inspiration and then playing around to see how certain hairstyles work with my absurdly thick hair!
there’s a great styling tip i found where you use a rolled up sock to give body to a chignon, but if i did that with my hair i’m pretty sure it’d look like i had a car tyre on my head! incidentally, when my mum was little my grandma styled her hair with a sock bun every single day, and mum’s had a major bun aversion ever since.
the links below will take you to pinterest, where you can find lovely pictures and lots of ‘how to’ tutorials for braids and hairstyles that inspired the ones pictured above :)
