If you’ve seen me in person lately you’ve probably noticed that I’m rocking about 500 feet of long, blonde hair—like the true boho yogini that I am at heart. I’ve been growing it out since I cut it short a few years back and keep telling my hair stylist to let me know when it crosses the line from “sun kissed yoga chick” to “Amish escapee”, which she assures me I haven’t reached yet, phew…
With all this hair I have to work with you’d think I’d be a styling pro, but I pretty much just blow it out straight or throw it in a bun. Talk about a wasted opportunity…it’s time this girl learned to “do hair”.
When I was telling a co-worker about an awesome book called, Braids, Buns, and Twists! that I had seen at the Paper Source, she suggested that I make a lent out of it, which I instantly jumped on board with (especially because it gave me an excuse to buy the book, win!).
So, this month I’m choosing 20 (or so) styles from the book and trying my hand at styling my mane. Get ready for some pretty hair pics (and probably a few epic fails). The timing is perfect too because I’m away in Kalamazoo all week for the second tier of my yoga teacher training, which is pretty much the perfect place to be for hair-braiding month, right?
I’ll leave you with a recent win I had: The Pretzel Braid. Not bad, right?
