weekend with a twist

One cold Melbourne weekend, I decided enough was enough of my same old, same old up-do. So I experimented and came up with a messy bun (see here for another version)! 

Isn't it funny that when we want our hair to behave, it usually doesn't? When I'm not going out anywhere special, my hair pretty much turns out perfect. When I'm going out, it's more of an effort to get it right. I guess that's what we call Murphy's law.



 

Here's a really quick explanation of how I did this messy bun: 
First, put your hair back as though you are making a ponytail, but don't pull it through completely. You will have made a loop. Next, randomly select small sections of hair. Secure these sections with a bobby pin the same colour as your hair. Keep going, until all of the loose hair is pinned. Look in the mirror as you do this to guide you.




Do you have the same issue with your hair when you go out? Perhaps I need to start to let my creativity flow a bit more, just like I did on this particular day. It's nice to change things up a bit. 

How has your week been? I have had a fabulous week of teaching and catching up with fashionistas (stay tuned for a blog post on this!). Have a gorgeous weekend!

Yours in style,

Suzi x  


What I'm Wearing: Sweater: Ralph Lauren, Jeans: RM Williams, Boots: Paul Green. For this hair style, I used Lady Jane Bobby pins in Brown.

  1. Didn't realise it was that easy to create that bun! You should check out Hair Romance. She has some great ideas on her blog & has this "twist & pin hairstyles" e-book at a pretty good price too!
