The Perfect Messy Bun for Summer

About a month and a half ago, I cut off nearly ten inches of my hair and basically freaked out. I was getting tired of the long hair that I had literally ALWAYS had (except for that one time in seventh grade that I've pretty much blocked out of memory), so I cut it off on a total whim. Probably wouldn't recommend doing that again.

But now that the panic has worn off, and it's starting to grow out (ever so slightly), I'm coming around to it. The main thumbs up is the fact that it takes way less time to wash my hair and/or get tangles out, but there are some days that it looks good with a hat. So I can't complain.

Anyway, this post isn't a PSA about how you should never cut off that many inches of hair on a whim. Although, I do wholeheartedly believe that to be true. Because now that I don't have crazy cat lady length hair, I can actually try some fun hair tutorials. I started a board for my faves and thought I'd share some of my top knot notch picks today. Just in case you're as into hair tutorials as I have been as of late.

Here are 7 hair tutorials I'm really loving lately...

fresh flower DIY hair barrette

Good morning! I'm back from my trip to LA and Palm Springs and ready to jump back into things with a DIY.

I picked up some fresh flowers from the grocery store the other day and realized that a few blooms would be perfect for a hair accessory. So, I whipped one up for Project Wedding and shared the tutorial right here.

Here's the gist of the tutorial, in photos...

Visit Project Wedding right here, for more photos and the full tutorial.

P.S. I am still recovering from my week away, so I apologize for the short post. I'm catching up on emails and to-dos at the moment (and cuddles with Luna). Things will be back to normal tomorrow though. Promise.

Until then, I'd love to hear what you've been up to lately. And/or whether you'd ever make one of these flower hair clips for a special occasion?

I've been wearing my hair up in a bun a lot now that I have my bangs trimmed up again. And I have been calling it my fun bun for some reason. It's really more a utility thing than fashion, but I'd like to make more of an effort for cuteness if possible. You know, add a little more fun to my bun.

So what do you think of these hair goodies from Fresh Sewn?

Pretty cute, huh?

Oh, and Natalie does wedding bouquets too...LOVE!
