I Am Hair-Impaired.

I am hair-impaired. Truly. There are only three ways I can style my hair and they've been my style go-to's since roughly the sixth grade. The messy bun, which I credit to my years spent in an all-girl's Catholic high school, the top knot, which is basically a tighter messy bun, and loose curls achieved the "lazy way," with a set of hot rollers. It's true. I'm a spaz when it comes to brandishing a curling iron. 

I'm ashamed to admit that I would need to watch a YouTube video to learn how to create a sexy pony tail but I needed another style to add to my meager repertoire. I can't imagine what my husband must think when he comes home from work each night and my hair is in the same boring style. I swore I never wanted to be that person who wore her hair the same way every single but lo and behold, I have become her. 

This quick video demonstrates how to achieve the perfect "sexy pony tail" with nothing but a simply elastic, a bobby pin and a little misting spray. Curling iron suggested, not required. Thank god.

Tell me, do you have a go-to hair style?


  1. I seriously wish I had a hair stylist who would blow dry and style my hair every day. It would be so nice. Since I don't I'm lazy - wash it at night so it dries while I'm sleeping. Then I flat iron in am.

  2. I ditto what Jodi said...I wish I had a stylist to give me a blow out and curl everyday, but I don't, so I too am LAZY with my hair styles.

    I wash every other day and "style" which means let it air dry or blow dry before I pull it back in a low pony.

  3. I agree with Jodi...
    My hair is always down...blow dryed and either flat ironed or with a little curl to flip it out at the ends.

    I can barely do a cool ponytail...always have lumps...

  4. Apparently, the sexy pony tail is my go to hair style because I wear my hair like that all the time! I didn't even know it was a thing!

  5. I don't know if you've ever tried to do a sock bun but I'm telling you, you HAVE to try it! It's not as intense as it sounds/looks and I do it all the time. It's my "I totally didn't shower but I'm supposed to look presentable" look. My girlfriends all have different hair types and lengths but I showed each of them it's possible!!

    I found a tutorial on Pinterest but I may post one on my blog too!

    Good luck :)

  6. I need to try the sexy ponytail because right now I just throw mine up in a regular ponytail. I need a live-in hair stylist. Caroline loves to pull hair so once she outgrows this awful stage, maybe I'll be more adventurous with my
