Oh My God I Love Your Hair: The Hidden Headband Twist Trick

No matter how many hair tutorials I diligently study or videos I watch, I have yet to master ethereal, half-up, half-down hairstyles like this one. I almost wrote this one off too, assuming the curling and spraying and bobby pinning how-to would prove too complex for me, but I’m glad I scrolled down to see…

Oh My God 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 sectio…

Oh My God I Love Your Hair: The Rock ‘N’ Roll Pouf

If a mullet is best described as “business in the front, party in the back,” then this week’s OMG hairstyle is best described as “rock ‘n roll on top, classy French actress in back.” Yep, from this angle that sky-high pouf is all attitude, but when that model turns around, you’ll find a surprisingly elegant…

Oh My God I Love Your Hair: The Criss-Cross Ponytail

When it comes to fancy hairstyles, it doesn’t get much better than a glammed up ponytail, does it?

Oh My God I Love Your Hair: Pretty Pigtails For Grown-Ups

Pigtails are often relegated to the “little girl’s hairstyle” category, and while they certainly can have a Pippi Longstocking vibe, there are ways to make them look and feel decidedly more grown-up. With a unique braiding style, a cool texture, or a purposefully messy vibe, pigtails can suddenly be chic and — dare I say it? &#8212…

Oh My God I Love Your Hair: 30 Seconds To A Perfect Holiday Party Hairstyle

When I’m trying to think of something cool to do with my hair, and don’t have the time, energy, or hand-eye coordination to attempt a complex updo, I usually just give up, rake some Moroccan oil through my hair, and call it good. Which is fine, I guess, but wearing it down all the time…

“Giant hair bows” were recently featured on a Huffington Post list of fashion trends guys hate, which made me love them even more than I already did. This loose, half updo would be totally man-friendly on its own, but once you add the big ass bow, it’s like, “Sorry dudes, I do my hair to…

Oh My God I Love Your Hair: 10 To-Die-For Fall Hair Colors

Your hair is like a tree — it should change color when autumn rolls around. I love fall hair colors because they’re darker, deeper, and more dimensional than summer hues, plus they’re often described with dessert-related words (chocolate, honey, caramel, butterscotch, etc.), which delights me to no end. If you’re yearning to update your tresse…

My Side Part, My Self

For the past several months I’ve been more dissatisfied with the way I look than usual. Sorry to say, but I’ve never been particularly good at practicing radical self-love and acceptance, preferring instead to vacillate between mild self-criticism to severe self-loathing. Of late, that’s been of the physical nature — my body issues are well-documented,…
