"Messy hair" and little or no makeup is "in" for Spring and Summer 2006!
-also "in" "the messy bun", which I mastered after child #1.
If you are not a Mom, and have no idea how to do "messy bun"....here are directions.
For Longer Hair: A Sexy-Messy Bun
"The idea is to give hair a bit of a roughed-up, textured, slept-on look," says Bean Longo, the Beehive Salon.
Step 1: Use a setting gel like the Fresh Styling Gel on damp hair and dry with a diffuser. However, if your hair is very straight, try a few hot rollers to get the texture you'll need for this look; just roll them halfway up in two-inch sections.
Step 2: Pull your now roughed-up hair back into a ponytail and secure with a covered elastic band. To give even more texture, use your fingers instead of a brush to comb.
Step 3: Depending on how much hair you have to work with, divide the ponytail into four, five or six sections.
Step 4: Wind up each section (visualize wrapping thread around a spool), creating a spherical, flowerlike shape. Secure the ends with bobby pins.
Step 5: Finish the look with a mist of hairspray. Bean recommends Fresh Poppy Hairspray.
I promise my way, is much easier,
1. wake up
3. wash hands
4. grab a hair clip
5. put hair up
(combing hair not neccesary)
Now, if I convince the masses that overly thin, is a bad look. An extra 10-15 pounds is hot, stretch marks are sexy, and "looking spent" is foxy...I will be Queen of the land.
