My hair is getting long, guys! I know this may not be as exciting to you as it is to me, but it’s been a while since I’ve had enough hair to do the cute little updos I see all the time on Pinterest. And, if I’m being honest, Pinterest is three-fourths of the reason why I’m growing my hair out.
(Another eighth is because I’m cheap and hate paying fifty bucks for a haircut every six weeks. The last eighth I’ll let you guess about.)
So today I got a wild hair (oh fine, I’ll stop) and decided to try this one:
The tutorial looks simple, and really cute. Now, granted, her hair is longer than mine… like, a lot longer. But mine is, you know… long-ish.
So I gave it a go.
The ponytail part I had in the bag. So far, so good.
Here’s where things got hairy. (Oh hell, I said I’d stop, didn’t I? Sorry.)
Yeah. Apparently you need lots more hair than I have. And hair that is not as weirdly bouncy as mine, even three days post-shampoo.
I pinned, I sprayed, I really tried to get this to work. Alas, it would not.
So let’s just get it over with and do the Nailed It thing, shall we?
