An Updo a Day

My sister is getting married in just over a week.  Next Friday to be exact.  And although I am not in the wedding (it is a small, more casual wedding), I would like to look somewhat decent.

My daily routine consists of wrapping my wet hair up and clipping it.  It reminds me of tail feathers the way it splays out around my head.  I don't use "product" (I actually don't think I own any "product").  I own a brush that I use somewhat regularly.  You really don't need to brush your hair when all you do is pile it on top of your head everyday.

So the very thought of doing something somewhat presentable with my mop of hair petrifies me.  I don't even know where to begin!  Other people have tons of suggestions for me, all of which include loads of pomade, or mousse, or straightener, or curly stuff, or whatever else I don't use and don't have.  So I headed on over to Pinterest to investigate hair tutorials.  And that is where I found my guardian angel, Kate, from The Small Things Blog.  Kate has a blog full of hair tutorials, videos, and tips.  I have been watching nothing but Kate videos for the past two days.  She makes it all seem so easy...I think even I could pull some of these styles off!

That brings me to my mission for the next week.  I am going to try an updo a day until I find one that I can somewhat recreate AND that stays in my hair.  My first hairstyle was this one:


It reminded me of Adele's hair.  And it took me all of 5 minutes to recreate:

We could be twins, right?  No?  But, I'd like to point out that I probably have 10 times the hair that Kate does and this is at the end of the day.  So It somewhat stayed up.  Forgive the wonky camera angle, I did this myself in the kitchen.  I tried to get Bailey or Phoebe to help with the picture taking, but they couldn't quite get the hang of it.  Must be due to the lack of opposable thumbs on their paws.

Here is the view from the front.  If I look tired, its because today was my first day back to school after a wonderful two week long winter break.  In other words, I am tired. 

I don't think this is the style for me.  Now excuse me while I watch more videos and stay tuned for tomorrow's hair!
