KC Fashion Week Up-Do

About a week ago I showed off the outfit I wore to KC Fashion Week, but I also did an up-do I wanted to share. Here's the thing, when it comes to my hair, I am endlessly lazy. Yeah, I curl it every now and then, but when I look at all the amazing hairstyle tutorials on Pinterest I say to myself, "I could totally do that." and then I never do. My hair is long and straight and that's how I usually wear it. 
So I decided that for at least one night I needed to cut out the laziness. This isn't the most amazing up-do ever, but it was something fresh for me.

Start by take a chunk of hair from behind one of your ears and braiding it. Pin it to the other side to create a braided headband. Then split your hair in the back down the middle. Take one side and loosely pin it up to the opposite side. And the same for the other side. After that I curled some of the loosely hanging pieces in the back. And that's it! 
Happy Tuesday everyone!

  1. It looks great! I'm the world's laziest when it comes to my hair, too. It's an exciting day for mine when it gets washed. Ha! I think this is because I have so darn much of it (blow drying alone is a time commitment).
