MESSY HAIR… THE GOOD KIND

Calling all Good-at-Hair Girls!

I need help! I’ve never been good at doing my hair. I’m fortunate that it’s naturally wavy and I used to be able to just shower, add some moroccan oil, let it air dry, and it looked fine. Sometimes it even looked really great! But, with a little baby who grabs and pulls it (hard!) anytime it’s down, I’ve worn it up almost everyday for 10 months now. So, I think it’s about time I figured out how to do some easy updos! A messy top knot looks and sounds like it was invented just for me! Totally my style! I love it, it’s messy, it’s easy-going, it’s feminine, but not prissy, it’s casual, it’s my hair soul-mate…. I just can’t quite seem to get it right. I’m not even sure why – I feel like it’s either not messy enough and I look like a sumo wrestler or it’s in the wrong place on my head or something else is weird… I should be able to do this!

Let me know if any of you have a trick or two up your sleeve that might help me!

For inspiration, here are some women rocking the messy top knot way better than I am… Maybe someday soon I can add a photo of myself to this list! Fingers crossed!
