Scarf Up-Do

Posted on

During hot summer months, do you find yourself turning to the ponytail as a quick up-do to get your hair off your neck?

Well, here is a super easy alternative.

All you need is a scarf (or long piece of fabric) and a hair clip. If you’re clever, you could probably get the same effect with a hairband or bobby pins.

Start by tying the scarf around your head, leaving your hair hanging down your back. If your scarf isn’t that long, start tying in the back, so it’ll be able to tie at the top of your head.

Tie in a knot or bow at the top of your head a little off to the side. Looks good just like this, right? I would agree if it was Fall, but my neck is screaming at me that it’s hot, so let’s continue…

Twist the remainder of your hair into a slight bun and clip it at the top. If you feel so inclined, leave some hair hanging free in the front. The messier the better, in my opinion.

Then tuck the clip into the scarf to hide it. And you’re done!

How easy was that? And super stylish!

Happy Fashion Friday!

We had “Crazy Hair Day” at our Vacation Bible School today and we went all out.

I can’t even begin to tell you how proud this picture makes me of my son. Happy to raise a little person who is silly and spirited, all while learning about Christ’s love.

The Californians

Have you seen the SNL skit “The Californians”? It’s a mock soap opera, in which “The Californians” talk in this completely over exaggerated “valley girl” accent about directions to places and where the traffic would be horrible, etc. I myself as a true California girl think it’s hilarious. Completely wrong, but still hilarious. And I can’t stop talking like them. I am going around the house calling my husband “Stewart” and asking people “What are you doing here?”. I’ve discovered that the funnest thing to say so far in this accent is “Cheesecake Factory”. Try it. You can’t help but smile.

Hope your Monday is fabulous!
