You know how every girl has her own style obsession – something that if she doesn’t have just right, it completely ruins her entire look and maybe her entire day? Like for some girls, it’s shoes, for others, it’s purses. For me, it’s my hair. You probably wouldn’t guess that by looking at me because most of the time – so frustrated with my failed attempts at something decent-looking — I go with the default messy bun.
I’ve always been this way – probably because my hair has always caused me so much grief. It’s kinda curly, kinda straight, kinda thin and kinda thick. If I straighten it, it gets wavy when introduced to the smallest amount of moisture and if I wear it curly, it gets flat within minutes. This becomes especially troublesome during vacations when I see other women – even other travelers! – with beautiful natural locks that seem to just mold so well to whatever environment they’re in.
And then – and this is my latest hair woe — it only grows to a certain unimpressive length, starts getting even harder to control and forces me to chop it off with the unfulfilled hope of finding a haircut that will finally work just perfectly.
Now that my hair is probably its longest in history (just past my shoulders – sad, I know), I’m trying my darndest not to cut it short. But it’s killing me, you guys. I can’t do anything with it. So I’m on the hunt for hairstyles that can get me out of my messy bun funk but still won’t require much frustration. I thought I’d share some of my recent finds (links above) and hopefully help any of you suffering with the same haywire hair woes. Enjoy!
