the top photo exposes my ombre mane for what it really is -- stringy, messy scraggles. that's post-bedhead with one brush-thru. lovely, huh? haha.
a simple wrapped topknot. pull hair into a high ponytail. wrap tresses smoothly around the "pony nubb" and secure extra hair outside of the top knot with two, criss-crossed bobby pins. the pins are the best part. makes it look like you tried, even though this takes a whole of 30 seconds to style!
alright, off to save the day!
