Dudes! Thanks for all the nice words on Friday's post! The dress and tights are both from JCrew. The large calf muscles are due to years of dance and baseball (the cute bum, rippled abs and toned back are all long gone but the huge calf muscles remain, dammit.) The hair ... well I wanted to give you guys a close-up, I really did. I didn't have my camera at work though and by the time I got home, the headband had been ditched and I was rocking a simple ponytail. I think I might have a large head to go along with my large calf muscles; headbands start to annoy me after about an hour. I will try to recreate the hair without a visual:
First I parted my hair on the side. I then put a headband on, making sure to lift the headband up and over the front of my hair so I didn't mess up the part. Then I gently shook my hair out, to get rid of the side-part behind the headband. I pulled my hair up into a loose ponytail but didn't pull my hair all the way through on the last loop, creating a loop of hair. I pushed two bobby pins up through the bottom of the loop of hair, pushing my hair up to create a ridge of hair up against the headband. The ridge sort of creates the illusion of volume without actually having to tease my hair or add hair product. Next time I do it to my hair I'll take a picture and post it here.
I don't have pictures of my hair but I do have pictures of my puppies:
