As I have gotten older, I notice that having my hair in my face is quite bothersome to me. Probably because I never worn it in this fashion. As much as I try to embrace those messy bed head looks, I always fail, and pull it all back into my go-to pony.
In the winter time when the humidity is low, I will often straighten my hair out. While it takes me 30 to 40 minutes, it will last 4-5 days. That's the beauty of dry curly hair. I have a couple of products that I use and swear by. I use Options Soothe on my towel dried hair and once I am dry, I finish it with the Fekkai frizz control polish.
Bored with your Hair? and it's a kit that includes everything you need to make a top knot in less that 2 minutes...seriously. What I love is that you can make your top knot on top of your head for a flirty and cute look, you can wear it low for a more demure look. The bun can be sleek or messy-- It's up to you. This product comes in three different colors to match your particular hair color and it won't add but a couple of minutes to your morning routine.
Of course, you know I love a good deal. Well, it happens that over Christmas I was doing a little shopping and I hit H&M for some teachers gifts. Wouldn't you know, they have a version of this for just $3.99. Full disclosure, you will have to supply your own bobby pins and hair bands, but I think we all have a few dozen of those in our bathroom drawer.
