I've been growing my hair out for about a year. Actually, that really means I haven't gone to the hair salon in that amount of time. I seriously need to get there ASAP.
Funny how that happens. Before kids, I went to get a cut and highlights every three or so months. After having kids, a salon trip every few weeks is a comical idea.
In the mean time, it's becoming such a chore to style hair that's way past my shoulders.
To go from wet, shower hair to looking acceptable, is taking for-ev-er.
The ends need to be cut so it takes quite a bit of heat styling to make them look smooth.
Since it's summer, I've just been pulling it into a pony tail. It's fine but looks very much like one of those moms in desperate need of a makeover on the Today Show.
I found this bun tool and thought it was worth a try.
Given that it was only a few dollars, I didn't have high hopes for it to hold all day.
I was wrong.
This this has become my favorite hair tool in my 20+ years of styling my hair. Seriously. It's like a dream. I am done in literally 30 seconds and my hair looks like I spent time actually concerned about my appearance.
A huge bonus for me is it actually stays in all day. After it's in, I don't even have to touch it until I take it out. No touch ups. And, when I do take it out, my hair is full and wavy from being rolled inside.
They sell them for blondes or brunettes and also have a size for girls.
Here's how simple:
I can't believe I never knew about this before!
