@brighteyedgirl:  Awww, I hear ya.  What about something simple & chic?  Do a deep side part and slick your hair back into a pony tail?  Or, a sock bun?  Add a clip or other hair piece to dress it up a bit?

Good luck 🙂

How long is your hair?  Can you sock bun?

@brighteyedgirl:  My wife goes to the local hair dressing school for such occasions.  They charge her $17 for an up-do.  Maybe there’s something like that near you?

@brighteyedgirl:  sock buns are pretty easy and look great either slicked back or messy like. Maybe even a simple side pony tail with a little piece of hair wrapped around the band, or your bangs twisted back? There’s lots of little things you can do to your everyday ponytail/braid/bun to jazz it up a tad without alot of work. How do you usually wear your hair? I’d go with that and just add a little something- even straight hair down looks great if you pull a piece back with a pretty clip!

I did this today for the first time & it was super easy & looks pretty nice- would be even nicer with a nice clip or flowers:

@brighteyedgirl:  I can’t do hair either. Maybe just do a nice blow-dry & do you have any sparkly/nice hair clips/pins?

I had waist-length hair until college, and shoulder blade length hair ever since.

I totally can’t do my hair, either! You are not alone!

(Also, you can curl hair with a straight iron?)

@brighteyedgirl:  I am also horrendous at doing hair, but I try to class up a regular hairdo by doing the ol’ twist-back with the hair on top. You know, where you split the hair on top of your head into ~1 inch sections and twist them back into a ponytail/bun/etc.? If you feel like a regular hairdo is too plain, this is a REALLY easy way to fancy it up a little!

Maybe flat iron it straight and wear a fancy headband?

My hair does not curl well with any product in it. I suggest you use a flat iron with clean hair if you want to curl. place your hair in the iron, then flip the iron over backwards so the side that was towards the ground is now toward the ceilng. If that’s too dificult, you can also try to use curlers with wet hair. Once your hair is dry you WILL get curls.

@brighteyedgirl:  I know a couple of friends at school went to Georgian to get up-dos done, but I’m not sure if that student program runs all the time or not.  I’d offer to pop over and help you, but I cannot girl either. I can barely pull off a braid!

@brighteyedgirl:  My mom never showed me how to style my hair, I’ve had to figure it out on my own. I curl my hair all the time, using a clipless curling iron – I bought it at Target for ~$20 and it was a great investment! I watched a couple YouTube tutorials and figured it out quickly.

Hot buns is the best thing ever for an easy modern updo. I have several of these and they’re amazing. They are sold in most pharmacies and I think Wal-Mart.
