I was all set to wear a cutesy dress tonight and while Silas napped, I thought to myself that I should attempt a fancy-type hairstyle. This is what happened next:
Search One: Braided Chignon
Search Two: Updos for long hair
Search Three: Updos for really long hair
Search Four: Updos for long, thin hair
Search Five: Hairstyle ideas
Search Six: How to use a bobby pin
Search Seven: Seriously, bobby pins are impossible to use
Search Eight: How to pixie hair cut at home
No, I didn't cut off all of my hair, but it was tempting. You can see my searches degrade from a specific style I was hoping to recreate to increasingly desperate attempts to find updos suited to my hair.
Once I decided on a fairly simple bun, I quickly realized that I have a bobby pin deficiency. This prompted my realization that maybe I am not meant to have long hair. Other people with long hair always seem to be able to twirl their hair up and pin it perfectly in one easy motion. I was still jamming bobby pins frantically into my quickly unraveling hair when Silas woke up from his nap.
