The Lob is still going strong. But even in the world of women’s hair, the lovers of medium length need variety from time to time, and personally I’m getting really bored with my own long locks. I’m not at the point where I need to do something extreme like chop it all off but I definitely want to do more with what I got. With beauty, hair is the thing I know the least about so let’s just say that when it comes my hair I’m a tad uncreative. That doesn’t stop me from drooling over gorgeous hairstyles I see on Pinterest, because you know they’re staring at you and mocking you for not knowing how to do a perfect top knot or milk braid. Well today I’ve put together 6 relatively easy hairstyles for you to recreate. Trust me, the one with the gold rings just looks difficult because there are rings in it but it’s really just a bunch of easy three-strand braids.
These hairstyles all involve putting your hair back, either in an updo or ponytail, which is especially great for looking fabulous doing things like shopping, cooking, eating, breathing, etc. Yes these are common every day activities but what is more annoying than shopping when it’s cold and rainy out while you’re stuck suffocating in a scarf that was thrown on quickly, trapping your hair around your neck or inside your coat, and oh my god wouldn’t it be easier if you had just put your hair back or up? My hair is halfway down my back right now so this is becoming a serious problem. Death by hair. And cooking…eating…these should be obvious but I was specifically talking about the amount of cooking and eating that is on its way, the holiday meals! Put that hair back woman, it’s safer for everyone.
