One of my very favorite things about having long hair is that I can tie it in a knot. While this does not always look chic, it is always easy and effective. This style technique looks best when you’re bronzed and your hair is wet. Bronzed skin being the key to it’s appeal…
Start with damp hair. Apply Bumble’s Straight to damp hair to give it that extra wet look, then add gel for hold. Create a side part or brush your hair straight back. Then, using just your fingers, pull the hair back into a ponytail and twist into a chignon. Secure with bobby-pins.

Lately I have been totally into the high bun. It has always intimidated me a bit because I don’t like to rat my hair. But once I figured out how to do it, I can’t stop! It’s so easy and it can prolong a hair wash for 2-3 days! It also turns any outfit from humdrum to posh. The best tutorial I’ve found is from Beth Jones (here). Do you like these outfit posts or are they annoying?

Obsessed. I’m not sure how willing I am to tease like crazy but perhaps…I’m love-love-loving this tutorial from BJonesStyle.

Thank you B.Jones!
Lately I have been really into topknots, buns, chignons (a la @OscarPRGirl below) and have been looking around for relevant instructions. The easiest way I’ve found is to either use a hair piece or place a clip around your pony tail and wrap the hair around that to make it fatter. I still haven’t grasped the whole teasing concept.
I’m hoping to add my own eventually!
