Inspiration: Hair (Eeeek!)


Truth: I'm terrified of this week's style challenge!  That's why I made it a challenge, but I NEEEEEED your guys' camaraderie.  PLEASE TELL ME YOU'RE GONNA TRY THIS TOO. #begging #prettyprettyplease

I like to not think about my hair at all.  I had hair down to my waist for most of my life and didn't do anything to it.  I didn't need to do anything to it.  I didn't even condition it until I got to college and my roommate was like, "You don't condition your hair?" (The hair that was down to my waist!)  Nope, didn't need to because it didn't really tangle.  

Then for the last several years I've had shoulder length hair and only needed to wash and blow dry it--a 20 minute process total.  But, I haven't cut it since maybe like 7 months ago.  I'm constantly back and forth about whether to grow it out again or to cut it back to a nice sharp a-line bob, and the main deciding factor?  Which one is more conducive to staying out of my face.  And maybe not having to wash my hair everyday.  

That's one reason I've been curling my hair so often lately.  Not really for two-day hair, because it actually takes as long for me to curl it as it does to wash and blow dry, but to keep it out of my face.  Especially with my bangs growing out now!

If I can find a hairstyle that takes less than 20 minutes for second day hair, I'll be a super duper happy camper.  I'm thinking a cute ponytail with braids of some sort.  Seems fairly easy, but still enough of a challenge for me!   

These ladies make hair look easy and fun, so here's some inspiration for ya:

TELL ME YOU'RE DOING THIS CHALLENGE WITH ME.  PRETTY PETTY PLEASE.  :D

Find the rest of the challenges for the month HERE.  Use #PMTstylechallenge on Instagram and/or linkup here on Thursday!

  1. I am in the same hair boat as you! After years of long hair I chopped it all off in college. After several years of a short a-line bob, I've let it grow to about shoulder length. I think I may actually be committing to growing it out again! But I loved it short because it soo much less time to do. Part of why I want to grow it out is (a) to get it out of my face, and (b) style it more/differently. Which I have yet to do, lol. I am in this challenge with you!

  2. I wish I could french braid! All these ladies have beautiful hair!

  3. I saw something on youtube a while back about how just pinning your hair back in different ways makes it look more "done". Think the girl was using Kirby grips. I've got pretty short hair but I use the bigger snappy clip things.

  4. I just chopped my hair into a bob and I have no clue what to do with it now so I'm definitely going to do this challenge! I was so used to throwing my hair up into a ballerina bun every day of my life and now I actually have to "do it" in the morning.

  5. I've always had medium to long hair and for a long time all I did was throw it in a pony tail. Finally after reading a few blogs that focused mainly on hair I got up the courage to start trying out new ideas. I have accumulated quite a few up do tutorials and they have become my go to hairstyles. Most of them take practice and at first it seems like they take forever but I can do pretty much all of them under 20 minutes now, some even five.

  6. It has taken me 18 months to grow my hair out from a pixie to shoulder length. Not sure how long I'm going to go. The older I get, I have to find a good balance...not too short (as to show off my wrinkles) and not too long (makes my face look too long). My favorite cut was my angled bob. I wore if for years and got so many compliments. I may end up going back to that one of these days. I love the blog "The Freckled Fox"...she has so many gorgeous hairstyles!

  7. Thanks for all of these challenges! It's exactly what I need :). I have a lot of the same hairstyle goals as you and I have fallen into a curl my hair rut lately too. It's an easy way to make my hair look done and is pretty much no fail for me right now. And I love not washing my hair everyday! I could use a push to get out of my comfort zone and love the creative options out there (I have had the small things pics on my Pinterest page for a while and not done any of them!)

  8. Oh man, this is the challenge that I've been dreading, haha j/k it'll be fun. I have boring hair, it's been shoulder length give or take a couple inches for years! It's naturally wavy, so I usually just put gel in it and go. I'll check out the blogs for some ideas

  9. Ugh! Me too! My hair is longish and boring. This will be tough.

  10. I'm horrible with my hair. I've been feeling pretty good about it lately since I'm actually kinda doing something with it...even if that something is just washing it every 4-5 days, straightening it, and touching up inbetween. My hair is naturally wavy and I can put stuff in it and let it be that way but wet hair in the winter isn't ideal. I really feel like I should have a better handle on this by my 30s!

  11. I did it! Did the first pic above. It was easy and quick. I changed it up a bit by putting the pony into a bun at the nape of my neck. Do it!!

  12. I have a pixie with long bangs. I like to play around with different ways to do them, like French twists, strait back in a slight pomp, pinned to the side, S waves, cute clips, etc. Maybe playing around with yours could be an easy way to do yours? It would help keep it out of your face while adding interest?

  13. I have thoroughly enjoyed participating in the last couple of week's challenges, however, this week's will really push me, as my hair is a super short pixie. Trying to figure out how I can style it differently will definitely be a challenge!

    I just cut my mid-back hair off up to my shoulders. Does that count? :P No I love Kate's blog and I'll pick out some of the tutorials for short hair and try them. I'm actually excited to play with it now that it doesn't take an HOUR to dry and style.

  15. I have a great really short pixie cut. I recently tried to grow it out into a short bob but I ended up hating it and so I'm back to my fabulous pixie, I like to "let it do what it wants to". It has wave and some days it wants to curl one way or the other. I'm going to try a fun side part and possibly a braided head band to change it up,

  16. I'm definitely doing it with you! My short curly hair bothers me when it is down, but it is too short to just pull back cleanly. I can't wait to try some options!

  17. if you are looking for lots of braiding ideas, http://www.missysue.com/ has tons of them, I just recently started following her, and have found a lot of ones that I can apply to my shoulder length hair on day 2 :) The longer I can avoid washing my hair the better it seems :)

  18. I'm always up for a challenge! And I need one like this as my hair and I don't do much - up, down, maybe a braid. This will stretch my limits, so thanks!

  19. Oh goodness, my hair is my safe place. I rarely experiment because I have my morning routine for myself and my baby girl down pat and don't need a wildcard thrown in the mix. I miiiiiiight do this one!

  20. Hair down to your waist?! I think I need to see pictures of Audrey with long hair (mine was super long in college, too!). I loved your hair when it was in an a-line bob (one of my personal favorite hairstyles), but it's cute longer as well. I'm growing mine wayyyy out so that I can donate it eventually, even though it's going to take me ages to get there. I have always loved switching my hair up and doing fun things with it, so I'm getting really excited for it to get long enough to braid, curl, pin up, etc.
