First of all…I need a fresh highlight which is coming soon.
Now, I cannot stress enough how I always wash my hair at night so I am not dealing with wet hair in the morning or whenever I fix my hair. I can’t with the super hot blow dryer situation.
I really like to wash my hair every night because I just sleep so much better with slightly damp hair and just that super clean feeling. But, I do try to wash every other night if I can.
First day hair:
I am going to try to wear my hair straighter, but I just like a little bit of wave/curl. I just can’t get the right facial expression so no judgement.
Headbands are great for second (or third, fourth, etc.) day hair because I think you want your hair a little flatter and the headband can help disguise the not so squeaky clean hair.
Jen took a leap and posted a photo of her straw headband and I believe this was the first time she has worn one as an adult. She looked great! Just like I said I’m not a hat person – anyone who wears a hat is now a hat person. Jen is now a headband person!
Here is my collection. The knot at the top has been in style for a few years and I think it adds a bit of modern vibe to a headband. I have some old ones without the knot that don’t really do it for me. The bottom one is from The Dollar Tree a year or so ago!
As all teachers do, I was shopping at The Dollar Tree for some stuff for school. They had an abundance of interesting hair doo dads!
Look at the sweaterish ones at the top of the photo! Look at the cute tie-dye one at the bottom. What the heck? For only $1.25 I can take a chance on these. I thought the sweaterish ones would look great with a simple sweatshirt or sweater in the winter and the tie-dye one I can try now.
Pleather/fabric scrunchies and the cute little tie back ones were also finds at The Dollar Tree on the same trip!
And, I’m a sucker for a summer fruit accessory, you know? I don’t think these look that great on me, but I couldn’t leave them.
Have you tried the banana clip recently? I wore these to school all the time in the 90s for my teacher hair. Get you some bobby pins. Get you some little barrettes.
Jennifer mentioned in her blog that she never wears her hair in a ponytail to leave the house, but she looks so cute! The heat forced her to try it!
The scrunchie looks cute on your wrist, too!
I actually think this “twist” looks better when my hair is shorter. Just take a really small piece of hair and twist and then secure with a bobby pin.
Here’s my challenge to you – try something new in your hair this week. It’s the perfect time because it’s summer! If you are a blogger, show us the photo!
