hair dids

Down here in the south, it has been a sauna! I officially stopped straightening my hair two weeks ago, which I don't think has happened since I was in 6th grade! I'm pretty adamant about straightening my fro. But these days, it frizzes up instantly or it gets nasty from sweat and I have to wash it daily. Washing = an hour or so blow drying and straightening. I don't have that kind of time!

Anyway, I'm getting tired of wearing my hair in a bun or braid every day {and my coworkers prob thing I'm some sort of bum}. I'm in desperate need of cute, EASY do's that require little to no straightening action.

Pinterest... here I come! Simple hairstyles for work that look cute but require little work.

this may be my favorite {perhaps because I've been wearing my hair in a bun or braid for the past two weeks and this is a mix of the two!}

How do you wear your hair on a lazy day?

ps. Mike and I are planning on spending our one-year anniversary on/near the Chesapeake Bay  for a long weekend-- any suggestions of places to go in Virginia on the bay?


  1. ugh ... it's the same way here in the midwest. I honestly wish I would have left my hair long for this very reason ... to put up. very very very high up. so cute!

  2. I haven't been here...yet.....but my family in VA/WV love it!

  3. I feel your pain! I've been wearing my hair up everyday for the last few weeks! It's just to hot!!! xoxo

  4. I've been rockin the top knot quite a bit recently. However, I will now be adding a cute scarf to it - great idea!

  5. These are great hair styles, I'm definitely going to have to try some of them! Lately with the heat and humidity in NC, I've either been rocking a side pony, to feel a little fancier than a regular ponytail, or using hot rollers + Bed Head Biggie Maxed Out hairspray (the only hairspray I've found since moving here that really holds up to humidity), and then about 10-15 bobby pins to pin the curls up in a loose bun. Anything to get my long hair off of my neck!


I love hearing from you :)!
