@TrousseauHorse:  I feel your pain!  I have straight, “fine but thick” hair as well.  Lots and lots of fine individual hairs that are next to impossible to style and frizz like crazy.

I’ve found some super easy and cute hairstyles on The Small Things Blog!  Her tutorials are really easy to follow and work for a variety of different hair types.  http://www.thesmallthingsblog.com/

Here are a few that look pretty simple


this one has a few extra steps but doesn’t look to be too hard

@TrousseauHorse:  the sock bun. Seriously, this is my savior for formal events. I did my own hair at my friends wedding (was a BM) and it looked awesome. 

I curled my day-old hair first to give it some texture, and then followed the steps below. It’s seriously so easy. I can’t make any of those stupid Pintrest “So Easy a Blind Handless, Armless Woman Can Do It” hairstyles work for me. But the sock bun? ALWAYS WORKS. 

Note: the thicker the sock “doughnut” the bigger the bun. It might not seem like it will work as you start, but it does, just keep rolling and tucking the strands.

This youtuber has lots of quick hair tutorials: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bf-gRNE0uDs

I still can’t do them, I am useless at hair.  I can’t braid my own hair (can braid other people’s) and trying to do the twist braids I just ended up with a rat’s nest on my head.

I love sock buns as well. Super easy, bring a bunch of bobby pins to help cover it, and looks so good. You can take a piece away and braid and then pin around the base of it to add to it if you want. I love sock buns so much. They save me all the time

I did this for a wedding a few weeks ago. Cute and easy!

I second wedding bound’is second picture (the one with the three braids)! That is how I did my hair myself for my wedding and it turned out beautifly. I dressed mine up a bit with a small flower clip on the side to keep my bangs back, but other than that I followed the tutorial and got the exact same result as that picture. It ends up being way more complicated than it actually is! My only suggestion would be to get some very small clear rubber hair bands for the end of the braids. That way if any of them end up showing ita not such a big deal.

THE GIBSON TUCK. I do this or the sock bun on the daily! I can’t tell you how many compliments I receive when I gibson tuck it up. 





I was the only Bridesmaid or Best Man that didn’t get my hair done (poverty! Yeah!) and I honestly thought mine was just as good/better than some. People stopped me over and over, amazed I did it myself.

I just don’t understand the sock bun. Maybe I’m being completely idiotic. But, like, you cut off the top of a sock and then what? None of the pictures explain it well.

That sock thing looks completely impossible.  

Also, for someone who is bad at doing hair, teasing hair is also impossible.  Unless you’re like, “Haha you look bad, haha you look bad.”

I’m loving these suggestions! I, too, struggle with my hair… it is so damn straight it just falls out of everything! Commenting to follow.
