This post isn't featuring five pictures because I'm a quintuplet. I haven't been cloned either. Each picture features an attempt at a messy hair look done right. It was actually harder to accomplish the windblown or tousled look than it is to accomplish a nice polished hairstyle.
High ponytail: rubberband wrapped twice, pulled tightly, then pulled out pieces
Low ponytail: non-hairwashing day
Low side ponytail: some hair fell out on right side (I took this picture, what am I looking at?)
Hair in side ponytail: lots of hair fell out on right side
I wasn't sure if I could pull off a flowy, wispy style for the following reasons:
• My hair has a mind of its own and a stubborn personality
• Even if I could get it to where I actually liked the look, I would progressively ruin it each time I touched it
• My hair is black. It's sometimes hard to see the texture and twists and wisps and pieces, especially in a picture. In the end it might just look like a big bird's nest on the top of my head. A charred bird's nest.
Do you do the messy do? e-mail me your pic!
