When I was preparing for my wedding I went on Pinterest to look up hair ideas. After searching “wedding hair” I was dismayed to find pretty much nothing that looked like the hair styles I had in mind. You see, I am not an up-do person, never have been. The few times I have had up-dos done I hated how I looked in them, it just didn’t feel like me. What makes me feel most beautiful is when I feel like myself. In the world of hair, feeling like myself for me is soft, easy, carefree waves. I have been styling my hair this way since I learned to use a curling iron back in high school and I don’t see myself changing this up any time soon. If it ain’t broke right?
While there is something to be said for having a consistent style I also like to try out new things - that’s why I am in fashion right? Considering my affinity for the beachy waves, I have been pinning lots of new inspiration images to my Pinterest beauty board that incorporate an easy waved style but add a bit more interest with ribbons and scarves. Today I wanted to share some of my favorites that I’ll be trying out this Fall and encourage you to break out of your hairstyle rut as well. A scarf or ribbon tied into a pony tail is a great way to add color, texture and print to an otherwise simple outfit.
I want to make a side note here about hair extensions. I, like many other women, got hair extensions for my wedding. While wearing them everyday is not something I will ever do since it is just too maintenance for me, I do love the extra oomph they give me for braids and ponytails. Getting some quality hair extensions that you can use from time to time is definitely something I recommend if your hair is on the finer side like mine is. I got my set from Wigs and Plus in NYC, but I have also heard great things about Barefoot Blonde Hair and Luxy Hair.
