Day 20: Shove All Your Hair Into A Headband

Catchy title, no?

Wow, this morning was a disaster. I can't seem to get my act together after my holidays. No matter how early I get up, there isn't enough time to read my Bible and spend some time with God *and* do my hair nicely. And since I made commitments- I have to keep them. I'll try rolling the alarm clock back some more :(

I confess that I didn't actually like this look to start off with! It felt really 'look at me, look at me' purely because my headband was very tight and kept reminding me that I was wearing my hair in this style. It actually looks a lot better in the photos than it did in my head! I think I must have been remembering it wrong! Also due to the fact that I was running late, I didn't have much time to play with it, or even redo it. I would have loved an extra five minutes in order to try again with it. AND then my camera kept turning itself off because it had no battery. Frustrating!!

And I felt a bit like I was wearing a maid headpiece, you know one of these things??
I think I've been watching too many period dramas recently!

But then the day looked up because as I walked out of my front gate, one of my friends from school was actually driving by and stopped to give me a lift. Awesome!!

I'd definitely try it again and it is a great way to keep hair out of your face. Looks hard, but is very simple. And I got lots of compliments on it. I'd like to try it with a different headband as this one kept slipping up which made my hair kind of clump upwards... ok, that didn't make sense so I'll just direct you here to Gentri's guestpost on the Sloanbook which is where I got the look from. And Gentri will give you help on how to do it, much better than I could! And if I am brave enough, I'd love to try the Lady Gaga 'bow' look!!

Aw Yay!! :D So happy to hear that someone tried one of my looks! I think you did a great job! Looks great and I'm so glad you got lots of compliments! :D try a looser headband if that's what was bugging you. I usually do mine with a looser one because you can always pin it in place and it'll look the same but it won't hurt your head. :D haha! Let me know how it goes if you try it again and definitely let me know if you try the gaga bow!

It looks rather neat! I think it'd be great to see this style again with slightly different touches.

I think it looks AMAZING. Very 1920s flapper!
