Twists to a Bun

My big hair project, Bye Bye Beehive, is over in 
6 days.
Six days.

6-days until I can use a blow dryer.
6-days until I don't have to go to work with a wet mop of hair everyday.
6-days until I probably won't go back to the crazy teasing, hair spraying, and highlighting
I was so attached to before.

I think the coolest part about this year-long project
is all that I've learned about myself.
You'll hear more about it in... 6 days.

Anyway—one of my favorite things to add a little spunk to a 2nd-day hair style
is to create a couple of twists or braids and secure your hair into a messy bun.
It's adds texture, it catches the eye, and it totally hides the fact 
that your hair is dirty major (with some dry shampoo, of course).

Because sometimes, just sometimes, that extra 10 (or 40) minutes of sleep
is just oh-so worth-it.

Just Because Friday

It's really inspiring to see people committing to something like this for a whole year! Can't wait for the final post :)
I run in the mornings before school, and I NEVER have time to blow dry my hair, so it's usually dry right around the middle of second period. I wonder what my 1st period teacher thinks of me ;)
