cute styles...

Hi guys--
what do you think of posting hair styles that out of the ordinary for you. It may be up, down, half up etc.
It seems a few of us could use some different styles to prevent us from cutting our locks
So , I'll go first. I know this isn't really cute or ordinary, it's just different than the every day hair style I wear

ok i was so bored with my hair this weekend, I straightened .



headband


ok, that's it for me right now.

Clipped back waves on either side today with alligator clips and kinda liked the look. Not super creative, but experimenting...

Wavy -- I never realized how layered your hair was! I thought it was getting all kinda one length! You can see it more with it straight though. Or is that just a trick of the lighting?

Val -- I like that look! I think that half the things we should be doing to our hair aren't super innovative, but we get stuck in a rut and forget the "oldies but goodies" That should be added to your repertoire.

These are all using different sized flexi-8s. I haven't mastered anything really fancy yet. Sorry the pics are so big; I can't seem to get them any smaller.

LOL, I have to edit my post as i put these ARE super cute, when i meant to write these AREN'T
Anyways, I love the styles.
I need to try the one val posted. I mean i've done something similar before. It doesn't look as cute on me boo.
and i love the flexi 8 pics. And the one with the adorable barrette
And yes goob, I have a shiat load of layers. that's why i was thinking of growing them out and getting a more blunt cut. the lighting in my bathroom combined with my camera is not my real color.

Kinda cool when we get unexpected feedback besides all the amazing kudos from this forum. BTW- loved your hair straight too in your earlier pic, kinda fun to play around with different styles for a change while growing out...

wavy, the headband pic is really cute. I don't know why I never think of wearing headbands. I think because most of them give me a headache but they sure look cute. Val, I have tons of those clips. I never think to use them & don't think I've tried them the way you did. I'm sure it wouldn't look as good on me as it does on you but it's something else on my list to try.

Do these clips pull your hair out? I thought i used them before and every time I tried to get them out i pulled a wad of hair out.
Ok, so you twist your hair on each side and then sort of let hair fall over on top of the clip??

Sorry for the "post-nap" frizz ) I've never had problems with these clips pulling out hair, but like I said earlier I like the longer sizes for thick hair.

MsG -- I can't wait until my hair is just a tad longer! I'll be able to use all my flexi-8's. I used one this morning, but it was rather precarious. By the time I got home from class, most of it had come out. Its just not long enough for a half-up quite yet. I love the twists in the back with the flexi-8.

Your flexi-8 do's look great.

I can't wear headbands cause my head is too small lol. I look funny. that's why I went with the scarf.

Oh and btw wavy, I keep meaning to tell you I love that purple sweater lol.

I've got a small head, too, but tons of hair, especially on top and being able to hold it with a headband always ends up giving me a headache. I'm sure I haven't found the right kind yet. The scarf you used was too cute!! I need to try me one of those.

wavy - that hairband is fantastic!

Here's some ways I sometimes wear my hair. Though my hair breaks quite easily with clips and hairbands, so I try to leave it loose as often as possible!

I usually keep my styles messy-ish, but these are messier than usual as I just quickly did them to take pictures. I know they're not very useful with people with shorter hair.. my hair's about APL.

Sorry if the pictures aren't too good. My husband was out and I had to take them myself... and I suck at it!

French braid.


French braid tucked under. I just push some bobby pins in randomly to secure it.


Side french braids. One on each side, sometimes I wear them like this, sometimes I braid to the ends.


This is something Pedaheh mentioned being from the CG book in another thread. I usually bring hair from underneath instead of under the ears though, and secure the hair with clips instead of a band. I like this because it covers my ears at the front (they stick out, lol).
(Rare decent(ish) photo of me, so I didn't bother covering my face up.)



Messy side buns. I just start low pigtails and then pull my hair half through the band again, if that makes sense... i'm not sure it does!



And fiiiiiinally a regular ponytail, except I like to wrap some hair around the hairband to hide it.



That's it, sorry for the long post!

2-something! F-Mii, Med porosity

Currently trying -
Co-wash : V05 Free Me Freesia
Rinse-out : Garnier Triple Nutrition
LI : Garnier Sleek and Shine
HETT mousse and gel
I can't find my camera right now, but I did a bun to keep my wet hair up when leaving the gym and I'm really liking it now too. I think it's what I needed to keep up the anti-chop. I also re-discovered my octopus clip. Both of these are keeping my hair out of my face and still helping my curl.
Hair type: 2a/b, medium to fine texture, medium to high porosity (I think!)
Routine: Occasionally wash with Lavender baby shampoo. CO wash with Garnier triple nutrition conditioner, use a nickel sized blob as a leave in, scrunch out a little water, scrunch in some aloe gel (FOTE), then scrunch in some Biosilk Rock Hard Gelee (BRHG). Plop with a backwards turbie twist for 10 min - to overnight.

Wavy, I love the purple sweater and the bejeweled headband.

And the straight hair! I was feeling the urge to straighten this weekend. How nice to have flexibility with your hair!

I came across this variation of a low bun while surfing the web. There is a video in the link. If I had longer hair, I would have done this today. There are other good updos on this blog for 4's but a skilled 2 might be able to make them work.

Day 1 pincurl updo and day 2 worn down may work for a 2.
