okay, so i tried two new things with the ol' hair last week.
one was good.
the other... needs work.
first, i found a new way to do the "carrie bradshaw" bun.
i thought she always got that big bun from a hair piece (which she might) but i found a way to make my bun pretty big on it's own.
first, i put my hair in a high ponytail and instead of pulling it all the way through, i left a tiny bun on top with the rest of my hair hanging.
then, i split the ends in two pieces.
i wrapped the first piece around the base of the bun and tucked it in the hairband.
the tiny bun plus two sections of hair make the final bun bigger - -
which i prefer.
carrie bradshaw, yes?
well, kind of.
the second thing i tried was picture my friend sent me:
the upside down french braid.
i didn't think this looked easy, but i thought i could figure it out.
so i flipped my head over and started braiding.
once i got to the crown on my head, i stopped braiding.
i flipped my hair back and put it in a bun.
and it looked like shit.
so i ended my hair experiment with one success and one... not so much.
but i think i'll try this one again because it's so cute.
hopefully it will be better the second time.
practice makes perfect.
