Updo Tutorial


Sometimes you just don't feel like washing your hair, am I right? That's when updos come in handy.. really handy. In order to create this look you need:

Directions:

1. Leave bangs/shortest layers in the front out and put the rest of your hair into a low pony tail at the back of your head
2. Split pony tail into two sections
3. Twist one section loosely and wrap counterclockwise around the other section, pinning it as you go
4. Repeat clockwise with the other section
5. Curl front layers of hair around the wand away from face
6. Pin the longest curls back into the bun loosely so they retain the curl & leave shorter curls out
7. Apply massive amounts of hairspray 
8. Go out on the town - that's what I did!


We went to Rocky's Dueling Piano Bar where these dudes will play anything for a couple dollars. This is my awesome friend Mike who was home visiting from the Marines for the weekend.


They even pulled all the service men up on stage to recognize & thank them for what they do for our country. We love you guys!


Then the boys got a little silly..


Saturday night I met up with my best frans for some tailgating in the Swamp. Just in time to watch Florida State beat the crap out of us.. le sigh.

Whatevs.. football isn't everything, right? 

It was so awesome having Mike in town, and I loved seeing all my old friends. I love the holidays.

  5. Your hair is so pretty. Do you recommend that curling iron? I always see those tapering types at Target, but wasn't sure if they are hard to use.

  6. Why yes, we most certainly CAN be friends! Especially since you like red lipstick and Love Actually and want to drink diet coke with me. I can't wait to watch Love Actually again this year. I get all sorts of choked up through out the entire movie. I just wish they had taken the weird naked couple out. Completely unnecessary story line and makes it hard to endorse the movie to every single person on the planet (ie. Grandma's and Pastors and such)

  7. Thank you guys so much for your comments!!

    I definitely recommend that curling iron because it's cheap and it actually works! Usually curling irons don't work at all in my hair (especially if they're affordable!). Also, they're super easy to use. It's harder the longer your hair is (it sometimes takes me a few tries before I can wrap the whole section around the barrel).

    Leslie, I totally agree. I saw that movie in the theater for the first time with my parents... Definitely one of the more awkward things I've ever experienced.

    xoxo
