Hair of the Day: Buns Buns, Baby


Being that  my hair is akin to an afro, and 90% of the time I can barely seem to get it through the front door, I have to come up with semi creative ways to make it look presentable. Most days, I really don't feel like taking the time to straighten it, nor do I want to look like young Michael Jackson all the time. So, when I am feeling lazy, but still want to look like I put some effort into making it look decent, this is one of my go to styles. 

The great thing about this style is that if you can manage a ponytail, you can do this. All I do is section my hair into three semi equal parts and twist into buns. Secure with two bobby pins each and ta da. Done. The front, I just finger comb back and leave it kind of loose looking. Most of the time I don't even bother with hairspray, but I do recommend a light misting. I get a lot of compliments on this hairstyle, and the best part is that it takes very little time and effort, which is essential in my lazy girl beauty routine. 

Below, I have added a Nail of the Day photo. This is Essie's Love & Acceptance, a sort of dusty greyish lilac. This is actually good quality Essie. The thing about Essie is that they always rope me in with their beautiful color selection and then often let me down greatly with their formula. This, however, is not streaky, and did not take about 900 hours to dry completely. Plus, I love anything lilac, so I am really happy with this!

I also  used the Seche Vite topcoat for the first time. I really, really dig this. It dried really fast, and left a nice shine. As for lasting power, I can't really say just yet, since I just applied this about an hour ago. I am optimistic, though, since I have heard very positive things about it.

Thanks for reading! If you enjoyed this post, don't be shy. Go ahead and follow me on Google Friend Connect on the right of my page!

  3. Thank you :) yes, it definitely works better on textured hair... Maybe if you curled your hair and used a texturizing product? I guess that sort of defeats the purpose of having this quick, easy style, though. Haha


Holla at me!
