OMG I Love Your Hair: The Messy Sock Bun

As much as I love sock buns for their magical volumizing and man-baffling abilities, when they’re tucked in a little too perfectly, they tend to look like … well … a sock on your head. That’s why I’m loving Sea of Shoes fashion blogger Jane Aldridge’s messier take on the style. By curling random sections of her hair first, leaving the bun itself a bit undone, and not pulling back all of her hair, she created a sock bun that’s still big and dramatic, but not overly precious (or overly sock-y, for that matter). Bravo! [Sea of Shoes]

Mommie Dearest: My Son’s Long Hair Gets Him Mistaken For A Girl

MD-long-hair

My seven-year-old son has hair that many people would kill …  or at least pay an arm and a leg at the salon for: honey blonde with natural ombre highlights, ringlets that cascade down, skimming right above his shoulders. [I have seen photos of Avital's son and his hair is indeed glorious. -- Amelia]

To top it all off, he loves his curls. When he was younger I would trim them just a bit so that he could see (AKA shaggy dog syndrome). But as he grew older, he let it be known that he was super into his curls and refused to cut them. And to be honest? I was kind of thrilled. I loved his hair just as much as he did, and was happy that he wanted to keep it long. We only have a few simple rules if he wants to keep his hair long: It has to be up in a ponytail during hot/humid weather to avoid heat rash, it has to stay out of his eyes (which he accomplishes with various cloth headbands/sweatbands), and it has to be — relatively — knot free.

So, my rough and tumble, soccer playing, LEGO-obsessed, drum-playing seven-year-old still rocks his long curls. And for some reason, it completely throws everyone else off balance. At least once a day, ever since his hair started growing in earnest, my son gets mistaken for a girl without fail. As you can imagine, this causes a lot of feels. Keep reading »

OMG I Love Your Hair: The Triple Braid

This triple braid is like one of those cookie-cake-pies you see on Pinterest that kind of freak you out, but you can’t help but want to try it anyway: it’s a braid within a braid within a braid. The good news about this hairstyle is that it’s much easier than baking a cookie cake into a pie — just braid your hair into three equal sections, then braid the three into one monster braid. Voila! Celebrate your new coif with a piece of PieCookieCake. [Hair Romance]

10 Ways Dyeing Your Hair For The First Time Is Like Losing Your Virginity

virgin-hair

Believe it or not, saying goodbye your virgin hair is a lot like losing your actual virginity. Whether you’re getting highlights, lowlights, or a full-head dye job, altering your natural hair color for the first time, especially as a full-grown adult, can be pretty terrifying … but also exciting!

I recently decided to undergo a hair transformation myself, and while it wasn’t super drastic, it was enough of a change that I still felt all the feelings. Dirty blonde up until this time last week, I decided I wanted to lighten my locks with a full head of highlights and go blonder for the first time ever. So I did. And now I’m MUCH blonder. Believe it or not, I found that parting ways with my former hair was a lot like having sex for the first time all over again. Let me explain… Keep reading »

Oh My God I Love Your Hair: The Chic, Short Bob

Everyone is going hogwild for the lob right now (that’s short for long bob, if you’re not familiar with hair-related portmanteaus), but seeing this photo of model Sui He is a great reminder that the short bob will always be a classic. It’s simultaneously sexy, chic, polished, put together, and  playful. Don’t ask me how that’s possible, it just is. The best part? Sui’s hair here is actually a faux bob, which means you can get the same look whether or not you’re ready to chop off a few inches for realzies. Here’s a video tutorial for long-haired ladies who want to give it a try.

Katy Perry Dyed Her Hair “Slime Green” And The Crazy Thing Is I Like It

While I’m totally in favor of people dying their hair weird colors — Nicole Richie’s purple hair is amazing on her and I loved the rose gold hair trend — I usually draw the line at green. Green hair has always just looked like too much time was spent in a heavily chlorinated pool or, I dunno, witchy but not in a cool goth way. So when I saw that Katy Perry had dyed her hair “slime green,” I expected to hate it. But I don’t. In fact, with her dark roots and skin coloring, I think she looks kind of fantastic. I’m not saying everyone should run out to their nearest Hot Topic and ransack the shelf of Manic Panic’s Green Envy … but if you can rock it like Katy, do you, girl. [Instagram]
