A quick fix...

This one is a little embarrassing to post, but I thought it might be useful to someone out there in blogland who may be like me- rushing out of the house to get a kid to school only to realize that you totally forgot to fix your own hair. It happens often to me, and luckily I'm almost always going back home, but today I had a few errands so I had to do something with my bedhead.

So here's where it started- yesterday I just had a simple front bump/bun do. Nothing fancy at all, but after sleeping on it, it looks that much better. :)

Start with a twist braid in the front (similar to a french braid, but you're twisting together 2 sections instead of braiding 3- you still add hair to each piece as you go.)

One on the other side (Hi, Ruby!)

So here's what I had in my hair to work with- one hair tie and two bobbypins.

I hold the two sections in my mouth while I pull the rest of the hair in a ponytail- then add the two twists.

I usually would add a tie here and then twist with another tie, but I only had one, so I just started twising everything together, making sure to keep the twists nice and tight.

Then twist it up in a little bun, and here ya go. Super easy and fast (10 minutes in the 7-11 parking lot while returning Redbox movies.) :)


  1. Wow. That is freaking amazing. I want to be you.

  2. You just described every morning for me! Thanks for the tips!

  3. Cute. I would have just fixed the front bump and pulled the rest up in a ponytail. But I'm also in the "in between" stage of growing out a really bad hair cut (never go to a place on your lunch break that you don't know). So my front pieces are still too short to twist well.

  4. Lovely! It looks fabulous! Definitely like it took way more time :)

  5. I think it is fab how you did this in your car!!
    I am going to feature this post on my blog on monday!
