Hair Inspiration for Spring

I desperately need to figure out new ways to wear my hair. I recently got bangs (which I love) and my hair is growing, but I am having a hard time getting creative with it. It's either down or in a ponytail and I need a Spring pick me up. I think I'll start with A Cup of Jo's hair tutorials and then maybe I can gain enough skill to move on from there. Or not. Any suggestions?

i'm hearing you. i'm in a hair funk myself, it's long but just straight, no bangs and i'm contemplating bangs too. i LOVE the cup of jo hair tutorials. they all look super easy! ;) have fun with yours...

Meesh said...

I have the opposite problem; just finished growing out bangs and now have no idea what to do besides a basic middle part! I totally sympathize.

Thanks for giving me this inspiration. I have been sport one too many ponytails as of late. These are easy fixes. And since I am always sporting one day dirt hair...lol....this is right.up.my.alley!!! Cute stuff...

Love Cup of Jo's hair tutorials. I use them all.the.time.

I'm so not a girly girl. I recently chopped off 13 inches because I had no idea what to do with it, and now my hair is just touching my shoulders again and it's all deep parts and pony tails. Boring!

Post whatever you do. Good luck!

So beautiful! And I just chopped mine, it was in the way so I donated. I like long hair in winter best, in summer I love how cool it feels to have less.

your hair and you are beautiful no matter what, but it's so fun trying something new. sometimes not so fun (my head is throbbing with the bun/headband combo i got going on today). pictures of your hairs in action please!

I just discovered a blog called Hair Romance. She's Australian and it's given me the dose of inspiration I needed for my hair. x

They are all lovely! I know what you mean - my hair's quite long at the moment too but I just wear it out as everything else is not quite right or "me". Maybe that twist/ roll is the way to go?

Andrea said...

Am experiencing a similar predicament...my hair is getting longer, but isn't quite long enough to pull off anything too complicated or elaborate. So I just leave it loose or in a ponytail, which is the exact opposite goal I'd had in mind when deciding to let it grow out.

That being said, I probably don't have the dexterity to pull off anything too complicated, either!

Please share your experiments....it'd be great if you also shared how easy/hard it was to do!! (for those of us who are hopeless!)

Love these! Makes me want to go do my hair. :) Happy Spring!

I tried those hair coils and well lets just say follow directions make sure you don't interlock them.

beach house living- good to know! i saw some mini ones at the drug store yesterday and am wanting to try one of the bigger ones since my hair is a lot longer. i will definitely keep your advice in mind :)

no matter how simple they made it sound/look, i've given up hope on ever honing the skills to do anything fancier than a pony tail. and i don't think i'll like the feel of day-old hair on myself. dirt looks good on blogs and magazines and on other girls only.

Love these! They are so fresh and simple. This may just be me, but I like to do a bun before going to bed, and then in the morning I have the perfect "tousled" look. Might be worth a try!

I just tweeted you this but after seeing this post, I did my hair like the picture 2nd from the top and it was so easy to do and wear.

melifaif said...

I have to really thank you again for this. I tried the tri-bun yesterday and got oh so many compliments. Plus, it's fun! It made me feel spunkier...hope you are too! Much love...
