As a Mom, I am constantly looking for ways to make my life a little easier. There is definitely no exception to that when it comes to my hair. I am not even going to lie, sometimes I go days without washing my locks! But how do I keep it looking fresh and not like a grease pit?? Enter the braid…
A braid is a quick and easy way to add some life to my hair while still looking polished and put together. It helps to hide my unclean hair and keeps fly-aways out of my face. It is such a versatile hair style that I can constantly mix it up, giving me a variety of different looks.
To start my look, I gave my roots a healthy dose of dry shampoo. This absorbed any oil and it gave my hair texture. For my braid, I parted my hair on the side and gathered a large chunk. I then proceeded to braid the chunk tightly and tie at the bottom. Once the braid was securely tied, I pulled on different sections to give a loose, messy vibe. After my braid looked the way that I wanted, I gathered all of my hair on the side of my head and pulled it into a messy, side bun. I pinned down any loose pieces with bobby pins and sprayed with hair spray to finish!
This is one of my favorite ways to wear my hair because it always looks different. It is fun and unexpected and it keeps my hair out of my face! As a busy Mom and a Kindergarten teacher the last thing I need is my hair hanging in my eyes, especially on days when I am already dragging.
Now for a little information on my outfit… But before I begin, I apologize for the quality of my pictures. Things have been just a little hectic lately and iPhone pictures in my backyard was the best that I could manage. I promise that my next outfit post will be back to your regularly scheduled professional images!
It is finally cooler in Savannah so I have been making up for lost time with lots of layers and knee-high boots! My boots are very old. I got them from Aldo years ago but they are just so perfect I have not found a replacement that is good enough to completely get rid of them! I will link some similar pairs below! My tunic is from one of the cutest boutiques, Lucy and Lyla, that have the BEST price points! My sweater is from Target and is the perfect pumpkin spice color! Who can say no to pumpkin spice?! Finally I threw on leggings, a cute necklace and sunnies and I am set! This is an easy fall look that is quick, comfy and stylish!
Now if you remember from last weeks post, I have teamed up with a fabulous group of Blogger Babes to bring you a weekly link-up of some of our favorite fall trends! This week was braids so be sure to click their links and check out how they wear this trendy style!
