Hair Today

By January 27th, 202129 Comments

Hola Chicas!

So…I’m running late today, because my hair is acting up! I was ‘supposed’ to re-style last night, but I didn’t feel like it, and had to deal with the consequences this morning. I slept with it in a high pony, and when I pulled it down today, it was flat and frizzy on one side, but still full in the back. I knew that in order to rock it without a hat or scarf, I had to pull it back somehow.

I tried a simple headband, but wasn’t feeling it. I also tried a high pony…wasn’t feeling it. I tried a puff…wasn’t feeling it. Finally, I decided to pull it all over to one side:

Kinda cute…totally 80’s…maybe for the club…not for the staff meeting I’m attending today ;~) I found out from a colleague recently that I’m known as ‘that girl with the funky clothes and cool hair’, lol. Definitely taken as a compliment, but I feel that the faux hawk might attract even more attention!

I love the look of the half-up/half-down style, but hate how tight the claw clip or ponytail holder pulls the top half. I decided to do a faux half-up/half-down, by securing the top half with 6 bobby pins. The end result is fuller! Now, only the full, non-frizzy portions of my hair are exposed 🙂

    Going through walmart (went to get HE LTR) I went into the hair accessories isle and found a keeper!! It's called a goody ouchlessflex!! Oh how I love goody!! I also picked up a pack of two goody ouchless headbands!! They curve to fit your head!!

  • Terra D says:

    Nice headband, do you remember where you found it? I have major headaches from most headbands, even the elastic ones. Is it comfy? LOL. I love how the half up/half down looks with the headband!

  • NewbieNaturalDiva says:

    Fabulous hair! I really like the one with the headband and bobby pins. It looks so classy and your hair looks great as always. Your bad hair days are not bad hair days at all. 🙂

  • Nickye says:

    Would a 2 strand twist work on 3b/3c hair with a VERY strong curl pattern?? Or would it come out looking crazy?

  • Ebonie says:

    That is incredibly cute.

    This is quite the cowinkydink. I went to work on friday with a fro hawk, thought no one would notice it was a fro As the day wore on (around lunch) I was just feeling way too over the top, so I took it out and wore a curly fro. Much more presentable for work. I guess some styles need to stay in the weekends:-(

    I love the half up half down style too! I agree that ponytail holders and clips grasp too tight, I cant wait to try this with bobby pins…love love love it! is that a ear to ear headband or does it go all the way around?


  • Libra08 says:

    OMG! Thank you so much for giving us these new styles to try! I especially LOVE the half up half down style! I have a headband just like that and I can't wait to rock it. Maybe tomorrow for my first day of classes!

  • Unknown says:

    Too cute!! I'll definitely have to try this after my transition period! =)

    I love this hair style! But what kind of headband are you wearing (i.e. does it have teeth on the underside or is it smooth) and where did you find it???

  • ash says:

    I would take you hair on a bad hair day! Well, if you even have bad hair days, lol.

    Very cute! I love how you don't let frizzy hair phase you, and just go with the flow.

  • Anonymous says:

    LOOOOOOVE IT! can't wait to finish transitioning so I can rock it….Hmmm! maybe I could pull it off anyway. I'll try.

    ooooh, I like both styles! I agree that the second one is more professional. Very cute, and as always, your hair is rocking!
